Despite losing to Acend during the grand finals of VALORANT Champions, Gambit Esports’ Ayaz “nAts” Akhmetshin took the time to share his settings with opponent Aleksander “zeek” Zygmunt during the match.
The exchange was caught by one of the observers during the tournament by the name of PriusOBS on Twitter. In the messages, zeek asks nAts for his sensitivity settings, to which nAts himself happily replies. So, what sensitivity does a runner-up for VALORANT Champion play on? The answer is 800 DPI and 0.49 sensitivity.
VALORANT professionals play on a wide variety of sensitivities based on what they’re most comfortable with. It also depends on the title from which the player is coming. Different games have different sensitivity settings which can drastically change how things feel in a different game.
With both Gambit and Acend being from EMEA, the two teams had fought each other in the past. And while they may have been enemies in the server, they were friends outside of it. That was evident in the playful banter between the two teams in the middle of the series.
Gambit’s nAts shares full settings
Not only did nAts share what his DPI and sensitivity settings were to zeek, but he also shared his resolution settings too. Resolution settings are once again personal preference but can vary differently depending on a player’s monitor. Most professional players play on a stretched resolution which makes everything in the game wider by comparison, but nAts plays on a 4:3 aspect ratio, which makes everything one big box. Additionally, he also plays on 1280 x 960 resolution with that 4:3 stretch.

Even with the games going on, Patryk “starxo” Kopczyński from Acend happily chimed in on the banter going between the teams. He stated that he would switch to nAts’ DPI and sensitivity settings after he revealed what he played on.
