What should you do if you suck at aiming in Valorant? There are several things you can do to remedy this situation, including practicing hundreds of times and also looking at how professional players and coaches do it.
Not all players are equal and some pro players have various specialties. Pontus “Zyppan” Eek is one Valorant pro player who is known for his fantastic aim. He’s an up-and-coming youngin in Valorant who currently plays for FunPlus Phoenix.
Apart from playing professionally, Zyppan is also exploring the spaces of gaming content creation on both Twitch and YouTube. Unlike other streamers, Zyppan seems to be a bit camera shy so you won’t hear comments from him or see his reaction. The more important thing though is that you will be able to watch his expert play style.
In this article, we’ve compiled Zyppan’s Valorant sensitivity & settings.
Not only will you be able to study and apply it ourselves, but it will also give you a good idea of how he plays and why he gets the results that he does.
|Settings Name||Zyppan Mouse Settings|
|Polling Rate Hz||1000|
Zyppan has one of the lowest sensitivity settings that we’ve seen. We have to remember though that mouse settings and the DPI is largely dependent on what kind of mouse one has.
Since Zyppan uses a Logitech G Pro X Superlight, a dedicated wireless gaming mouse known for its fantastic quality, Zyppan was able to adjust his DPI and sensitivity accordingly. If you may have noticed, his sensitivity is a bit higher than his counterparts.

|Settings Name||Zyppan Crosshair Settings|

|Inner Line Opacity||1|

|Inner Line Thickness||2|
|Inner Line Offset||2|
Zyppan has some pretty standard crosshair settings, with white as his main color. We’re not certain about the size of his center dot, but it looks like it’s a 1.
We’re not overly fond of it, but it does look like it’s a crosshair that a lot of younger players use. It definitely is something that one would use if one were to prefer precision; say you love using AWP.
If you’re having a hard time with these kinds of settings, you can change the color of the crosshair into something more obvious like green or red.
|Settings Name||Zyppan Video Settings|
|Resolution||1920×1080, 16:9 ratio|
Valorant is rather visually appealing, if we do say so ourselves.
If you take a look at Zyppan’s stream, there are definitely parts of the screen that aren’t as graphically defined as they should be.
Do they look bad though? Definitely not!
We personally think that apart from personal preference, graphics aren’t all that important to a game like Valorant. They don’t really affect good performance or give one skill. However, it does affect in-game technical performance, particularly framerate.
Which is why Zyppan, like most Valorant pros, have set their graphic settings to the lowest possible way. This is to maximize the framerate output and make sure that the computer will not overcompensate on graphics rather than performance.
|Settings Name||Zyppan Radar Settings|
|Rotate/Fixed Orientation||Rotate/Based on Side|
|Keep Player Centered||On|
|Minimap Vision Cones||On|
|Show Map Region Names||Never|
PC & Peripherals
Like his Stream, Zyppan is still a bit of a mystery when it comes to his gears and overall PC build. We can assume though that since FunPlus Phoenix is sponsored by SteelSeries, some of his peripherals such as headsets, keyboard, and the like.
What we can be certain about are the components that he listed on his Twitch which are an Intel Core i9-9900K and, surprisingly, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Any player can definitely get away with a relatively outdated GPU like a 1080 Ti since Valorant doesn’t require much juice.
It’s surprising though because Zyppan is a professional Valorant player who has earned a considerable amount. However, it is also somewhat inspiring because it definitely means people with strict budgets can still play really good titles like Valorant.
