    Not sure if this is too big an ask but I think it could help alleviate a lot of people’s mouse issue. Here’s a game profile for a 4K dpi mouse 6k etc. maybe I’m not understanding this all correctly but could help ?

    Thanks for the input! I will pass this along to see if we can add this information.

    Hi Evan,
    That's not how the profiles actually work. The mouse dpi does not change the response curve of the profile, but rather the smoothness of the response within the profile's curve. For example, a 4k dpi mouse, 8k dpi mouse and 10k dpi mouse will all move at the same speed within a given profile. The difference is how smooth the response is from each mouse. Additionally, the higher the dpi setting, the more input is going into the KeyMander (and therefore the console) and can effect the way the auto-aim works if you have it turned on. Higher dpi mice tend to be smoother, but also more prone to noise (jitter) from certain types of mouse pads. The best thing to do is find a mouse sensitivity you are comfortable with and test different mouse dpi settings (and remember to set the KeyMander dpi setting to match!). Try 4K, 5K, etc. and see if you notice the mouse having more or less smoothness and see how your auto-aim is affected. I've been tinkering with some lower dpi settings with some very good mouse sensors (Pixart 3360/3366 sensor mice) and found I have much stickier aim in some games this way.

    Very awesome feedback thank you. I’ve been testing the mamba at 4500 and 9k dpi and there seems to be no difference so far. The higher dpi mouse certainly solved my smoothness problem I was having with the 2k dpi mouse. My question why is kaliber offering a bundle on amazon with a 2k dpi mouse if it’s ineffective for most shooters lol
    Your customer support is top notch. Thank you

    We have been making that mouse combo for many years and it has worked fine in most games depending on your skill level and style of play, but as the game developers adapt the aim/look engines in some games we have found there can be a tradeoff between speed and smoothness at resolutions under around 3.5K dpi. Higher level gamers that want to spam ADS to snap off headshots at high speed will need a higher resolution mouse of course, but most gamers aren't at that level yet and the current combo works fine to get people started with KeyMander gaming. Just like in any other activity, the better your skills are, the better your tools need to be to maximize your performance, but everyone needs to start somewhere and that combo provides a lower cost means to get started while also offering the convenience of wireless connection.

    Also, start playing with different resolution settings to see how they affect the stickiness of auto-aim in your favorite games. You may discover the auto-aim (if you use it) may become too sticky to hit consistent head shots at lower settings and not sticky enough to help pull you to the hit box at high resolutions. At the highest levels of performance small tweaks like these can help you win a few more games!

    Wonderful! I wasn’t trying to be inflammatory I knew there was a method to your madness. Anyways that all makes great sense. What exactly do you mean by resolution though? Sensitivity on keymander or mouse dpi settings ? I’m interested in this auto aim stickiness you speak of and I’d love to try out some tweaking. I’m. Going to be testing if the 9k or 4.5k dpi affects the auto aim tonight on bf5 w the mamba.
    Thanks for your awesome support

    Hi Evan,
    Sorry I missed your reply. When I said to try playing with different resolution settings, I mean try setting the mouse to 4000dpi (set KeyMander software to match) and see how well the auto-aim responds in your game. Try 4500, 5000, etc. and see if any of them are stickier with auto-aim, meaning when you move the mouse over the target which one seems to pull your aim as you move to hold it on the target. Games Call of Duty have a lot of auto-aim depending upon a few different factors, and it can help you a lot or hurt you a lot if you are trying to snap off headshots. The amount of auto-aim is something everyone needs to decide on their own. I'm not a big fan since it often pull me off of headshots in some games.

    Yes I’ve been going back on forth with this myself. I prefer using it at 9k dpi only because I can’t get the level of sensitivity I want out of the keymander with any lower dpi. I have to crank the keymander sensitivity way up even when using 9k dpi to get it how I like. I’m at like 140 for sensitivity settings for bf5 when the recommended profile starts somewhere around 72. It’s been a real battle getting It to be just right but I feel as if I’m close.
    Do you recommend just turning auto aim assist off ?

    When I play with lower dpi I get more auto aim stickiness for sure but it’s not worth the inability to move how I like (sensitivity just isn’t there when I’m that low).

    Playing with 16k dpi mouse lets me drop the keymander sensitivy down towards 85 but the performance just feels off. (I imagine that’s because keymander doesn’t go above 10k dpi).

    Any other suggestions are welcome thanks again guys.

    We usually recommend to turn aim assist off, in most games this will cause problems with mouse tracking.
