There has been a lot of people who say their Valorant to Aimlab sensitivity feels wierd. Nearly everyone says that Valorant sens feels faster after using Aimlab. So I decided to make a helpful post so you can have the same sensitivity.
We need to take into consideration a lot of different factors, because converting sensitivity directly through the Valorant game profile within Aimlab does not seem to be completely accurate.
DO NOT lower your Valorant sens if it feels to fast after playing Aimlab, instead we will alter the Aimlab settings to better match your Valorant sens. This is important to retain all your muscle memory that you have trained by playing Valorant.
First of all, make sure you the game profile within Aimlab set to Valorant.
In Aimlab there is a bug that makes your sensitivity slower if you have controllers plugged in, because they interfere with Aimlab’s sensitivity if the player has raw input on. If you have slow sensitivity in Aimlab, unplug any controllers.
Another mistake people make is not having the same FOV when converting from Valorant to Aimlab sensitivity. Valorant has a FOV locked to 103, make sure this is the same as Aimlab, some people have their Aimlab FOV set to 100 and this will narrow your vision and make your sensitivity feel different.
THE MOUSEPAD TEST
1. If you sensitivities are still different, what I recommend you doing is standing in the center of the shooting range within Valorant, place your crosshair on one of the corners of the wall (in the middle of the wall edge, not the top or bottom).
2. Then place your mouse on the edge of your mousepad and slowly move your mouse to the other edge of your mousepad.
3. After this shoot the wall where your mouse stops and take note of how much your mouse moves when rotating in the room.
4. Now enter Aimlab with the settings I mentioned above, and do the same thing, play a task on the FACILITY MAP, by standing in the middle of a room and doing the same test.
5. If your mouse does not cover the same distance, then tweak your Aimlab sens to and repeat the test until it does.
Is Valorant and Aimlab Sensitivity The Same?
A player called Drimzi did some testing and these are his findings and this link too. Basically he has found them to be completely identical, however that is not the case for most people, why?
He explained to find Valorant sens, you must multiply Mouse sensitivity by 0.07, which equals the degrees turned per mouse movement. Which means if you have 1 Valorant sensitivity, you will need to turn 0.07 degrees per mouse movement. With 400 DPI, this means 1 mouse movement is equal to 1/400th of an inch.
Then 360 degrees will require 360/0.07 = 5142.857 mouse movements or 32.6571 cm ((360 / 0.07) / (400/ 2.54)).
To properly measure Valorant to Aimlab sens, we also have to factor in the 103 FOV. With all this information the test can be executed by turning 51.5 degrees which is half of 103 FOV, to move the crosshair from the center to the edge of the screen, which will require 735.7 mouse movements (51.5/0.07).
He concluded that the settings were exactly the same, but we can tell that they don’t feel the same.
Use The Same Resolution
Valorant locks your resolution to native, currently there is no way to have resolutions such as 4:3 stretched without help from 3rd party applications. Resolution plays a really big part when converting Valorant to Aimlab sens. If your resolutions are different in Aimlab and Valorant then your sensitivity will also be different.
Make sure you have the same resolution for example 1920×1080, aspect ratio and also set the display stretching ratio to your native aspect ratio. This will make sure the settings are the same and the resolution in Aimlab does not stretch if you have lower resolutions.
Setting Up Aimlab FOV and Sensitivity
Open Aimlab settings. Read Full Aimlab Settings Guide for Valorant.
- Make sure your game profile is set to VALORANT for proper sensitivity conversion. Your sensitivity conversion would be all over the place otherwise. It basically means that if the game profile isn’t set to valorant, it doesn’t matter if the sensitivity value in aimlab and valorant is the same your Valorant to Aimlab sens will be different.
- Then, on the right hand side, enter the same sensitivity you have on Valorant in the sensitivity area. This can be found in the hipfire settings section.
- Make sure your field of view (FOV) matches, Aimlab should be set to 103.
The Bottom Line
Lots of people complain that the Valorant to Aimlab sens feels different, and since there can be so many factors different for everyone, the best way to get the most accurate sensitivity conversion no matter who you are is to do the mousepad test. I covered the mousepad test earlier, where you stand in a room and move your mouse from one edge of your mousepad to another.
This way we can manually make sure the sensitivities are actually the same, even if we have all the same settings.
Reminder, if your Valorant to Aimlab sens is different and you continue to train in Aimlab, you won’t see any results when you enter Valorant. Play some Valorant after using Aimlab with these settings fixes and see if it feels the same.
