Stewie2k is best known for playing professional Counter-Strike, but that hasn’t stopped him from dominating in VALORANT.

Although he’s not the biggest fan of the Riot’s tactical shooter, his skill and knowledge from playing Counter-Strike all these years has rubbed off on him.

His pinpoint accuracy and his aggressive playstyle have easily translated to success in VALORANT. He barely misses a shot.

Here’s Stewie2k’s VALORANT settings.

Mouse settings

DPI400In-game Sensitivity0.64
eDPI256Scoped Sensitivity1
Polling Rate1000Windows Sensitivity6
Logitech G203 White

Stewie2k has reasonably low sensitivity, similar to his settings in Counter-Strike.

Crosshair settings

Key bindings

CrouchLeft Ctrl

JumpSpace Bar / Mouse Wheel Down
Ability 1C
Ability 2Q
Ability 3E

HyperX Alloy FPS

Stewie2k has chosen to stick with the default settings for most of his keybinds. For jump, though, he uses Mouse Wheel Down. This allows him to easily chain bunny hops, and move swiftly around the map.

Stewie2k has surprisingly opted for high video settings. Most players with a background in Counter-Strike lean towards the low end to increase visual clarity. But because the devs designed VALORANT to run on almost any computer, high settings don’t make too big a difference.
