James “Crowder” is an ex-professional Call of Duty player. Today, with all of his experience and knowledge in Call of Duty, he is a head coach of Atlanta FaZe with talented players like aBeZy on his roster.

On top of this, he is also a full-time streamer on Twitch.

So, when it comes to the Crowder Warzone settings and sensitivity, there definitely are a few things that you can learn, considering his vast involvement in the community for over a decade. Moreover, after analyzing his sensitivity and settings, we will take a look at his complete gaming setup and discover what he makes use of to be the great player he is to date.

So, if you are interested in finding out more, stick around, and let’s get right into it.

Some of the key details that we can take away from Crowder’s controller settings are his BR Button Layout, Deadzone, Sensitivity, Aim Response Curve Type, and controller vibration. So, let’s dive into each setting in more detail and find out whether or not you should adopt any of them into your own gameplay.

In first place, his choice of BR Button Layout. As you already know, there are a few options that you can pick from. Crowder uses ‘Tactical Flipped’, which is quite a common setting for a range of pro players in the likes of MuTeX and Aydan.

As per his ‘Deadzone’ setting, he has gone for 0.20, which is deemed quite high. Many pros prefer to stick to the minimal 0.05, which is what is even recommended for beginner and intermediate controller players.

Crowder’s controller sensitivity is set at 6, which is quite average. Many pro players actually prefer to set it at 7, however, at the end of the day, you should use whatever you are most used to. As a general rule of thumb, the higher your sensitivity is, the quicker you can react, but your accuracy may not be as good. On the flip side, the lower your sensitivity is, the more accurate you are likely to be, but your ability to react in a timely manner may be affected.

James’s Aim Response Type Curve (ARTC) is set to Dynamic, which essentially allows for the gradual build-up of rotation speed that is relative to the movement of your analog sticks. This essentially means that you can ‘flick and shoot’, just like mouse and keyboard players.

And finally, his controller vibration is enabled. This is very much a personal preference. Many pro players, however, have this option disabled. This could be because the vibration can hamper their accuracy or even distract them. Others prefer vibration to be enabled because it makes them have a better feeling of the game and the actions they take.

Besides the settings, the setup that you use is just as important and can greatly impact how well you perform in Warzone. So, below we will take a look at Crowder’s complete gaming setup, and give you a bit more of an insight as to what you could upgrade or greatly benefit from.


Not so relevant for consoles, but if you are a controller player on PC, and are playing on a 60 Hz monitor, you could greatly benefit from a better monitor. Crowder uses the BenQ ZOWIE XL2411P.

The 144Hz is a significant improvement in how your game feels as compared to 60 Hz. Plus, if you are looking for a relatively affordable upgrade, that is a great option for you.


James uses a custom PlayStation 4 controller from Battle Beaver, which is specifically designed for him. If you wanted, you could probably get a similar one yourself, but it isn’t as important as it doesn’t do anything more as compared to the average PS4 controller.

Perhaps, besides additional bumpers on the triggers and so on, which again, aren’t essential and are very much a personal preference, there isn’t much of a difference between controllers.


Despite the fact that his A50 headset has a great built-in microphone, crowded uses that for in-game chat. As far as his streaming is concerned, he relies on the Shure SM7B microphone.

To keep that in place, he uses the RODE PSA 1 microphone stand.


Like many Warzone streams and pro players, Crowder too makes use of the rather expensive Herman Miller Embody chair.


And finally, a setup is nothing without a great headset. Crowder uses the ASTRO Gaming A50 Wireless Dolby Headset, which is a very popular choice not only in Warzone but in the gaming community as a whole.
