Warzone pro player controller settings

A Reddit user has put together the controller settings for 33 of Warzone’s best players, so now you can try out pro players’ settings for yourself and see what works for you.

Choosing the best controller settings in Warzone is difficult; you can spend hours tinkering in a private match to find what feels the most comfortable. Usually, pro players and content creators have found the perfect settings, allowing them to win thousands of dollars in tournaments such as the JGOD $100K Warzone Tournament and Huskerrs Howl Tournament.

While an individual pro player’s settings may not be perfect for you and your playstyle, a generous Reddit user has put together the controller settings for 33 of Warzone’s best.

Here’s the full list and how you can use it to find the perfect controller settings.

Reddit user Taiizor has created a list of the controller settings for 33 of the best Warzone players and content creators. This list details their deadzone, sensitivity, sensitivity multiplier, and how their sensitivity is affected by the multiplier.

As this list proves, there are no controller settings that are one size fits all. Every player has their own preferences, but there are lessons to be learned from this list.

One of the most interesting aspects is that most high-level players use the Dynamic Aim Response Curve. Dynamic allows your aim to speed up slightly when initially moving the thumbstick, which allows for fine aim control and quick target transitioning.

Dynamic is the recommended setting for skilled players, but you can always use Standard like NICKMERCS and JGOD: it all depends on what you’re most comfortable with.

For sensitivity, the average vertical and horizontal sensitivities amongst pro players are 7.6. You should set your sensitivity to 6 or 7 to start and adjust it higher or lower until you feel the most comfortable. It’s also worth noting that almost every pro player sets their vertical and horizontal sensitivity to be the same, so it’s worth bearing this in mind when choosing your settings.

The ADS sensitivity multiplier shows a trend relating to how high the top player’s normal sensitivity is. Generally, those that use a high sensitivity (10 or upwards) have a much lower ADS multiplier. This allows them to look around the map and switch targets quickly but gives them fine aim control at range.

Those with the average sensitivity tend to use a multiplier anywhere between 0.8 and 1, as the transition from moving to ADSing will be less jarring.

Warzone players want Raven to switch two POIs on Caldera

A Warzone player has rearranged the POIs on Caldera after the community has expressed their discontent with the map design.

Published

on

Warzone’s new map hasn’t exactly been received very well by players and now the community is suggesting that Raven should switch around two of the POI’s.

Warzone‘s new map Caldera hasn’t exactly been getting positive reviews since it was introduced. As well as bugs and glitches on the map, players have also not been happy with the layout, with many missing Verdansk.

With that being said, one player decided to come up with a way to make the map better by rearranging the POIs.

caldera map

Reddit user ARES_GOD put a post up in the Warzone subreddit of the Caldera map. The post is captioned: “Hey @RavenSoftware just a thought about Caldera think this would feel better… (Changing POI location).”

Upon inspection, players will notice that the map of Caldera in the post is slightly different from the actual layout of the map. In fact, two of the most popular POIs have switched positions with each other, which the player feels would make Caldera “feel better.”

The two POIs in question are Peak and Capital, which have been switched in this version of the Caldera map. Peak is usually right in the center of the map, which many players aren’t too fond of, as one of the comments states: “Yeah i just dont like peak in the middle.”

The massive mountain directly in the middle of Caldera makes it hard to rotate, as traversing up rocky terrain is notoriously difficult in Warzone.

The idea is to switch this massive height with Capital, a more level POI that would likely make it easier for players to rotate through. Players seem to like the idea, as the post has over three hundred upvotes, with comments expressing their fondness of the change: “The way you edited the map like this is incredible…more buildings at the center for strategizing.”

However, one comment has pointed out that the logistics of the change won’t make much sense: “But whos going to go to an island resort NOT on the beach. And the capital needs a water way for trade. Not very feasible. Though I agree, peak dead center, not my favorite.”

This probably won’t be the way in which Raven updates Caldera, however, they have confirmed that changes are coming.

With so many Prestige levels, different weapon levels, and Battle Pass levels in Vanguard and Warzone Pacific, it’s only natural to want more XP. Here’s when the next CoD Double XP event is going to be.

XP has been a vital component of Call of Duty’s multiplayer for many years. It’s the quintessential upgrade mechanic that allows you to increase your in-game level and provide you access to better gear and attachments.

Vanguard and Warzone Pacific carried on from where Cold War and Warzone left off by giving players limited-time windows of opportunity to increase the XP they can earn.

How to get Double XP in CoD: Vanguard & Warzone Pacific

Call of Duty players can get Double XP by taking advantage of the Double XP promotional events that Activision put on.

Thanks to the Raven Software Trello board, we know that there will be a few Double XP events upcoming:

  • PlayStation Exclusive Double XP from Feb 17 – 18
  • Double XP, 2x Weapon XP, and 2x Battle Pass XP from Feb 18 – 21

These regular occurrences will help players to level up their ranks, weapons, and Battle Passes much faster than normal.

What time does CoD: Vanguard & Warzone Pacific Double XP start?

  • PST – 10:00 AM
  • CST – 12:00 PM
  • EST – 1:00 PM
  • GMT – 6:00 PM

These special Double XP events usually occur during a weekend, as it naturally gives players the most time as it’s away from school hours and generally when people are off work.

With Season 2 of Warzone Pacific and Vanguard coming on February 14, this upcoming Double XP event will give players a great opportunity to rank up the new Battle Pass.
