How to Decide the Best Sensitivity

The above-recommended sensitivity is more suited for beginners. But there is a good chance they might not work for you. So here is what you need to know about the different sensitivity options.

  • Motion-Control Sensitivity: It decides how fast or slow the crosshair should move when using motion controls.
  • Sensitivity: It decides how fast or slow the crosshair should move when using the right joystick.

Since you will be using both methods for your controls. You should go to the Shooting range and start by setting both the motion-control and joystick sensitivity to 0. From here see how comfortable you are when using these controls and adjust the controls accordingly. Maybe you are getting slow response times with the motion controls then increase its sensitivity. Similarly, test the joystick sensitivity and change the settings as per your preference.
