As gamers, we often find ourselves wanting to be as versatile as possible. Personally, I think there is nothing wrong with being an expert in one thing. In some cases, it’s a very good thing, especially if you’re a Valorant player.

Grimm takes ‘expertise’ to a whole new level by showing us the best possible Sage in the world of Valorant streaming. Aptly naming himself a ‘competitive Sage grinder’, there is no better person to learn this particular agent from than Grimm.

While we may not know much about Grimm personally, there’s much we can learn from what we know of him, which is his game sense, sensitivity, and settings.

In this article, we’ll show how Grimm plays. After reading this article, I’m hoping you’ll be a step closer to your goal of mastering Sage.

Here’s a summary of Grimm’s Valorant sensitivity & settings.

Mouse Settings

Settings NameGrimm Mouse Settings
Sensitivity: Aim0.22
Scoped Sensitivity Multiplier0.93
Invert MouseOff
Raw Input BufferOff

An interesting mouse setting in Valorant is ‘raw input buffer’, where the game allows its users’ mouse to send input data directly to the game instead of going through the system or a dedicated application like G Hub or Synapse.

While it does seem like a good feature that can really reduce latency, it is still in beta and I would not personally recommend that you use it.

One notable thing about Grimm’s settings is how he prefers his UI Quality setting to be in medium.

UI Quality, or User Interface Quality, refers to the heads-up display (HUD) in a game. Still confused? It’s basically where you see all the relevant information while in-game, like your status bars and mini map.

By increasing the graphic quality of his UI, it’s likely that Grimm thinks it gives him better visualization and also that it helps his gameplay.

What I find interesting about Grimm’s key binds is his use of his mouse. While I wouldn’t recommend it, especially since it takes a while to pick up, an expensive gaming mouse really calls for being maximized. Hence, Grimm makes sure that he is using all the possible buttons.

Personally, I think macro keys on mice are better used for role-playing games or clicker games. However, if it suits your play style and hand movements, then by all means do so! It’d really be a bang for your buck, and would bring your personal set-up closer to Grimm’s Valorant sensitivity & settings.

PC & Setup

Grimm has an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X for his CPU as well as an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080. With specs like these, you’d definitely be able to play more games like Valorant.

Grimm also has a Logitech G Pro Superlight mouse, Ducky One Two Mini mechanical keyboard with red switches, a BenQ Zowie XL2546 24.5-inch 240 Hz gaming monitor, and a Sennheiser HD 599.
