Overwatch Pro Settings and Gear List

With the announcement of the upcoming Overwatch League, we were eager to find the best settings for competitive Overwatch. So we spend a lot of time and effort on research and tried to find the resolution, dpi, and sensitivity for each individual pro. We also watched hours of video footage to gather information on the monitors, mice and keyboards of Overwatch pros. This is the result: Our Overwatch Pro Settings and Gear List.

We considers this our data vault and our source to give you the Best Monitor and Gear for Overwatch and our Overwatch Pro Settings Guide. We chose the teams by developing an internal ranking after considering recent tournament performance. And who knows, these might just be possible players of the new Overwatch League.

In our articles we tried to give you an overview of what we would consider good settings for Overwatch. Averages of eDPI for example can help you tremendously in deciding which sensitivity you want to use. However, sometimes you might want to emulate one of your favorite Overwatch pros like Seagull or Surefour. If you want to use exactly the same settings, resolution or sensitivity as the pros, have a look at our list below.

We proud ourselves in the fact that we update our list as often and as soon as we can. But please, if you do spot any mistakes, please tell us in the comments. Additionally, you can check our FAQ if you have any further questions. This list will be completely updated and revamped with the launch of the Overwatch league.

      1. hey ProSettings, I think Miro’s DPI is an error. It says 1040. But you cant have 1040 DPI on a mouse. If you put 1040 it just makes it 1050.

        1. Hmm that is weird since since “1040 dpi 9.4 in-game” this pops up if you type !sens into his twitch chat.

        2. My mouse can have 1040 dpi because it increments by 80 dpi. some mice will be different which is why some wont be able to go to 1040

        1. We only add players from top teams in this list. Sorry! You can comment his full settings and gear here if you want us to add him.

  1. From what I’ve discovered, eDPI is not dpi * in game sensitivity. 5 in game sensitivity is the 1 to 1 ratio, not 1 in game sensitivity. 1000 dpi * 5 in game sensitivity = 1000 eDPI, 10 w , 1-5 being 20% increments. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m about 90% sure of this

    1. Sorry, 10 in game sensitivity = 2000 edpi, referring back to the example in my main post.

      Ryujehong, for example, has 1600 DPI and an in game sensitivity of 1.16, which, 1.16 is 23.2 percent of 5, so 23.2 percent of 1600 is actually 371 DPI, or 371.2. So his true DPI is 371. Try measuring yourself. Or swap the settings 1600 DPI with 1.16 in game sensitivity and 371 with 5 in game sensitivity to see how they are similar.

        1. What I’m saying is that going below the default 5 in game sensitivity is deducting from your DPI in increments of 20%.
          1600 – 1.16(23.2%) = 371 DPI
          371 and 5(no change)

        2. If you want to see it for yourself, set your Dpi as high as possible, then your in game sensitivity as low as you can possibly make it, jump into training and look at the stark difference in pointer speed in game compared to your desktop. Try to keep in thought “Five times slower”
