One of CSGO’s biggest names is Stewie2K – a decorated North American player and major winner. Despite being in the Counter Strike scene as a relative newbie, Stewie2K found himself huge success shortly after.

Stewie2K is arguably one of the best to ever play the game, but began streaming Valorant ever since his retirement from the CSGO scene. It’s been a treat to watch him apply all those skills and provide us with quality gameplay.

If you’re curious how a decorated CSGO pro likes to play Valorant, look no further!

I’ve researched and compiled all of Stewie2K’s Valorant sensitivity & settings information below.

Windows Sensitivity 6

Like most first-person shooter players, Stewie2K likes his mouse with extremely low DPI relative to a higher mouse DPI of 1600.

Just as Bumpaah explained, too high of a DPI will lower your accuracy. While a lower DPI will feel “heavier” initially, once you get used to it, expect better gameplay and precision.

Unsurprisingly, Stewie2K’s crosshair in Valorant looks similar to his crosshair in CSGO. He likes using small-ish crosshair in cyan.

Stewie2K is probably the only streamer that went to the extremely “low-end” of aspect ratios by using 4:3. In CSGO, lowering your ratio decreases your field of vision.

While this doesn’t apply to Valorant, still, why does Stewie2K do it?

Unlike CSGO, your FOV will never change in Valorant. It’ll just stretch out.

For one, Stewie2K is a seasoned professional player who knows his limits and capacity. Second, decreasing your aspect ratio actually improves framerate because the computer will render fewer images.

Personally, changing your aspect ratio should be your final option when you want to increase your FPS in Valorant. There are better methods that wouldn’t heavily affect visuals. After all, being comfortable in what you see is also incredibly important in playing the game.

PC & Peripherals

Stewie’s processor is an Intel Core i9-9900K while his graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super. While he’s sponsored by Acer Predator and LG UltraGear, his peripherals are mostly Logitech, a HyperX Cloud II for his headset, and a BenQ Zowie XL2546K as his monitor.

You may be surprised to find that Stewie2K’s PC, while still relatively high-end, isn’t the best PC that money can buy. However, what he has is more than enough to play the games that he loves and that’s what’s most important.
