Steel, whose real name is Joshua Nissan, is a British-Canadian Valorant player who is currently sharing his talents in 100 Thieves’ Valorant team.

Steel’s stream is the epitome of fun.

He loves playing with friends, he loves commenting about his decision-making, and most of all he loves showing off his skill. If we were to choose our favorite Valorant streamers, then without a doubt, Steel is among our top five.

If you’re looking to emulate someone who can carry their team without a hitch by always providing clutch plays, then Steel’s stream and other related content is definitely the one that you need to observe. It’s quite obvious that other Valorant players agree with us too, given that Steel has loads of viewers and fans who love watching him.

A talent like Steel is one in a thousand, but it doesn’t mean you can’t be like him or learn his moves. One of the best ways to study how he plays is by knowing his Valorant sensitivity & settings. It can really give you a better overview of why Steel plays the way he does and what he thinks about in terms of technicality and in-game preferences.

In this article, we have gathered Steel’s Valorant sensitivity & settings to give you a glimpse of how he operated and what his point of view is when it comes to playing Valorant.

For a dedicated streamer, you might be wondering why Steel doesn’t go all out when it comes to graphics. Unlike IceManIsaac who loves using max graphics for his viewers on Warzone, most Valorant streamers don’t feel the same. Arguably, it could be because Valorant is a game that looks brilliant even in low graphic settings.

When watching Steel’s stream, there are some rather patchy details like a poison cloud. However, they aren’t very noticeable because the game’s color palette and the overall feel are vivid.

For this reason, we always recommend players lower their graphic settings. Doing so often brings more advantages like better fps and response time.

Steel’s crosshair is small but comfortable. As you may have noticed by now, a lot of professionals actually go by this crosshair design, especially on Valorant.

Unlike other first-person shooter games with textures and colors that are overly warm, Valorant has a pretty balanced and even somewhat dynamic color. This could be one of the reasons why a lot of pro players like Babybay or Asuna like white crosshairs.

However, regardless of the fact that a lot of pros love using white crosshair, what’s most important is what you prefer.

The inner line figures of Steel are actually pretty nice, though personally, we like the length at 4 and the offset at 2.

Believe it or not, there is actually a calculation for getting the eDPI otherwise known as “effective dots per inch”. It largely depends on your in-game sensitivity and mouse DPI. There are loads of calculators online specifically for Valorant, so you won’t have to do determine the numbers on your own.

You have to note that your DPI and sensitivity largely depends on the mouse that you are using. Just because he is a pro, it doesn’t mean all his settings will automatically translate well for you. Know your mouse well and most especially, know yourself well as a player.

Steel Valorant Gaming PC

Believe it or not, Steel didn’t use to have the best of the best PC parts but it was certainly enough for Valorant. He ran on an Intel Core i7-8700K paired with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080.

Right now, he’s so successful that he’s probably upgraded but we can’t know for sure since he hasn’t released any details about his setup apart from the ones we’ve mentioned and his gears too.

Speaking of gears, Steel uses a BenQ XL2546 for his monitor. A 24.5 inch 240 Hz monitor that’s really popular among the pros. For his mouse, Steel has a Logitech G703 which is a wireless gaming mouse known for its speed and ergonomic design. He places this on a HyperX Fury S Pro mousepad and pairs it with a Logitech G915 TKL tenkeyless lightspeed keyboard. Lastly, Steel uses a JBL Quantum One wired professional PC gaming headset.

Summary

Steel is quite conventional when it comes to his settings. On the other hand, he is also proof that you don’t need to spend that much in order to play esports titles. You have to keep in mind though that Valorant doesn’t need a lot in order to run, but it might not be the same for other games especially triple AAA ones.
