Gavin Ackley, more popularly known as “UnRationaL”, has taken part in a number of small tournaments and has even gone on to hold three world records in Call of Duty: Warzone. However, he is by and large a content creator on Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, and even TikTok.

UnRationaL is a pretty chill streamer who also loves featuring other battle royale and first-person shooter games on his channel like Call of Duty: Vanguard and Apex Legends. He also loves playing with friends so it’s interesting to see how a true a true team player plays and utilizes his knowledge as well as skill.

In this article, we’re going to discuss his Warzone sensitivity & settings and examine why he decided to set things the way he did. If you’re new to the game, this will be the perfect opportunity for you to discern what settings would be the best for you.

UnRationaL plays both a controller and a mouse + keyboard combo. We’d like to highlight his controller settings though because controllers are a really popular option for a lot of Warzone players.

Should you use a controller? Honestly, that depends entirely on your preference. There are a lot of factors that could sway your decision. For example, are you a console player or a PC player? Are you a sniper main or do you love rushing enemies down with a shotgun or an SMG?

Controllers aren’t as accurate as a mouse or a keyboard but it’s an extremely comfortable hardware that also happens to be great in sprinting and in short distance combat.

For solely being a streamer, it is quite surprising to see UnRationaL set some of his graphics settings in low. Unlike IceManIsaac who turns his graphics up a notch because he really likes showing off the game at its best, UnRationaL definitely doesn’t mind “worse” graphics.

UnRationaL’s rationale is obvious though since lowering the graphic settings is a known practice among gamers because it results in better framerates.

Personally, we think that when it comes to a battle royale game like Call of Duty: Warzone, having the best graphics isn’t particularly important. Plus, battle royale games tend to be wonky when it comes to optimization. Playing the game without glitches and lags is definitely more of a priority than seeing your characters and skins in better color and detail.

UnRationaL Gaming PC

Like most full-time content creators, UnRationaL has two PCs; one for streaming and one for actual gaming.

His gaming PC is the more powerful one, sporting an Intel Core i9-9900K, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090, 32 GB of RAM, 2 TB of memory, and a Z390 motherboard.

Based on reviews, the i9-9900K isn’t the best of the best but it’s definitely not a bad processor by any means. In comparison to the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X though, it performs 10% worse according to benchmarks.

For UnRationaL’s streaming setup, he uses an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660, a 16 GB RAM, a 1 TB HD, a 120 GB SSD, coupled with a Shure SM7B Vocal Microphone and a Sony RX100 VII.

UnRationaL’s streaming PC makes a lot of sense because apart from Ryzen chips being generally better for streaming, you don’t need a high-end graphics card to actually stream. What you do need though is a really reliable CPU, a ton of memory, and some solid peripherals like a good camera, microphone, and maybe even a mixer if your budget permits.

Now that you know his entire PC build, let’s take a better look at some of the gear he uses.

What Controller Does UnRationaL Use?

For his controller, UnRationaL uses a Scuf Infinity4PS PRO. The size and feel is definitely familiar especially among players who are used to playing on a console. It has two remappable paddles, an interchangeable thumbstick, a non-slip performance grip, and fully adjustable triggers.

What Monitor Does UnRationaL Use?

For monitor, UnRationaL uses the BenQ Zowie XL2540. This particular 24.5-inch monitor offers 240 Hz, 1080p, and 1 ms response time – basically everything you will ever need from a gaming monitor.

It’s also relatively affordable compared to some of the other streamer monitors that I’ve come across.

What Headset Does UnRationaL Use?

His headset of choice is the Astro A40. I’m not surprised by his choice for a headset since the A40 are fantastic gaming headphones. They are wireless, have an incredible battery life, sound amazing, and have a microphone, which is useful when it comes to chatting with friends on Warzone.

What Microphone Does UnRationaL Use?

And lastly, for microphone, he uses the renowned Shure SM7B. To keep the microphone in place, he also makes use of the RODE PSA 1.
