Tyson “TenZ” Ngo is a Canadian-born professional Valorant player that represents the Sentinels esports organization, and formerly played for Cloud9.

Despite having been born only in 2001, Tyson had already made a name for himself in CS:GO prior to moving to the Valorant competitive scene where his career really took off. Today, he represents team Sentinels and streams on Twitch as one of the most popular Valorant players.

In this guide, I’ll show you what sens TenZ uses, i.e. his sensitivity, and I’ll also walk you through all of TenZ’s Valorant settings, such as his crosshair settings, keybinds and more.

Let’s get right into it.

TenZ Valorant Mouse Settings

Setting NameTenZ Mouse Settings
DPI1600
Sensitivity0.22
eDPI352
Scoped Sensitivity Multiplier1
Windows Sensitivity6

From the above settings, we can see that TenZ’s sens is actually higher than average.

An effective DPI (eDPI) of 352 is significantly larger than other players, for example Shroud plays on 320. It’s this high sens that help makes TenZ look so flashy in his highlight reels, but would generally be considered too high for most players.

With a much higher-than-average DPI of 1600 (many players go for 800 or even 400) and a much lower in-game sens of 0.22, is this what gives TenZ his competitive advantage?

TenZ is also known to change his sensitivity on a daily basis – sometimes even multiple times per day – depending on how good he’s feeling. However, adjustments are always small, and tend to hover around the 352 eDPI figure.

TenZ’s Mouse and Keyboard

The keyboard and the mouse are arguably the most important aspects of any gaming setup. Without a decent set of both, your in-game performance will be handicapped. TenZ often uses the Finalmouse Starlight-12 and the HyperX Alloy Origins Core.

However, the mouse Tenz uses often changes as he likes to switch regularly – sometimes within the same gaming session! So it’s not just his sens that he adjusts.

That said, TenZ does have his own Finalmouse product, so it makes sense that he’d use this and also try to promote it at the same time.

TenZ’s Monitor

As for his monitor, Tenz is making use of the renowned BenQ ZOWIE XL2546. If you game in a room with a lot of sunlight and want to dim the effect of the sun on your screen a little bit, then this monitor’s side panels will help you achieved that to a great extent.

TenZ’s Headset

Surprisingly, Tenz uses the HyperX Cloud II, which is a pretty average headset (in my opinion). I use it myself as it is relatively inexpensive, however, it is worth noting that it does the job well.

TenZ’s Microphone

Like many streamers and pro players, TenZ makes use of the Shure SM7B, which in our opinion is also the best overall microphone for streaming, gaming, and virtually everything else you might use it for.

TenZ’s Chair

To guarantee good posture and comfortability during those long gaming sessions and streams, TenZ makes use of the SecretLab Cloud9 Edition. You can find this chair on the official SecretLab website.

Final Thoughts

Now that you know TenZ’s Valorant settings and equipment, all you need to do is decide whether to copy TenZ’s settings entirely or take bits and pieces and improve on what you are already playing on.

Do note that though TenZ is a professional Valorant player, by replicating his settings, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll see the success that he’s had. Every player is different and as a result, different settings may work better for different players.
