After two years with CoD Warzone, many players have come to their own conclusions about what the best settings are to play the game with a mouse and keyboard. Many players use a variety of controls and may even switch back and forth between mouse and keyboard to a controller while playing on PC. They do this to get an advantage over the competition and win even more matches while simultaneously trying to evade Kong and Godzilla in the latest Operation Monarch. With that said, here are our choices for the best CoD Warzone keyboard/mouse settings.

After you have bound your key binds to their correct settings, you can now move to your mouse and its sensitivity settings. Here are our picks for the best mouse settings in CoD Warzone:

  • DPI: 400
  • Polling rate: 1000 Hz
  • Vertical sensitivity mouse: 1.00
  • Mouse Sensitivity: 9.8
  • ADS sensitivity (High zoom): 1.00

Out of these, mouse filtering, smoothing, and acceleration significantly alters your precision while playing through a match of Warzone. To keep good accuracy with your weapon, we advise you to keep this number down to zero. If you are unsatisfied with these options, you can always hop into a private match to feel out what works best for you in CoD Warzone.
