    Hello, been using the Keymander IO gear for about 6 months now, it is really great, and I use it exclusively for Rainbow Six: Siege. This question regards me having a Razer mouse, and the DPI can go up to 16,000. I am aware that the Keymander software only allows you to set it to 10,000 DPI. What would I optimally do here: Keep the mouse at 16,000, or lower it to 10,000?

    Set the mouse at 10,000dpi is our standard procedure, but you might try setting it at different DPI settings to see if it improves the auto-aim. Try 4K, 4.5K, 5K, etc. and see if the smoothness is still there and if the auto-aim improves.

    Sorry, I'm confused what you mean by auto aim.
  • Moderator [Derek]

    When you play a console game like Fortnite, Call of Duty, etc. most games have auto-aim which helps you hit or stay on the target by "pulling" your reticle onto it when you get close or move your reticle over the target while you are moving. The amount of "pull" or "stickiness" of auto-aim depends on several factors, but you can definitely feel it when you are moving and also trying to aim at a moving target.

    Here's some more information:

    so do you put the max dpi on the highest dpi your mouse can use or the dpi you use for you mouse?

    Our general rule of thumb is to use the highest dpi your mouse can use, up to the KeyMander's max at 10K. However, depending on several factors it you may find better performance at a dpi of around 4-6K. Things that have an influence are the mouse pad, the type of sensor the mouse uses, and if the game uses an auto-aim feature.

    Mice with very high resolution settings have a high sampling rate and when running on soft pads can pick up such fine details that it can induce noise or jitter which makes fine pinpoint aiming difficult. The quality of the soft pad makes a difference here as does the mouse sensor, but if you're rocking a soft pad and an optical mouse, I'd suggest trying 3500dpi to 5000dpi and see how it feels. The lower end of the spectrum will have a tendency to be more auto-aim sensitive in games like Call of Duty, so I tend to run at a little higher dpi setting to break through the auto-aim for easier headshots.

    If you are running a laser sensor on a hard pad you can run higher dpi settings with less issues and it will be easier to override the auto-aim if that is something you don't like. However, I personally prefer the accuracy of a good optical mouse for FPS games so this is one area that is worth experimenting to find your optimum setting for any specific game.
