When you play VALORANT, especially in the upper echelons of ranked, you’re bound to run into a few demons dead set on stopping you from reaching Platinum or higher. But there’s only one El Diablo, yay—one of the best players in the world.

Not only yay is one of the best at his craft, but he’s also a veteran in FPS games, having played CS:GO professionally between 2015 and 2020 before making the switch to VALORANT. If you’re in need of some aspiration to sort out your settings, there’s arguably almost nobody better than yay to offer you some insight

Copying yay’s settings won’t turn you into a beast of a player all of a sudden, but you’ll surely develop faster as your game will be optimized. Bear in mind, however, that some settings like crosshair and mouse sensitivity are purely down to preference.

Here is yay’s list of VALORANT settings, including his mouse sensitivity, crosshair settings, keybinds, and more.
