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 Overwatch 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”

  2. Ajax has given up his position on NRG so he should be a free agent
    Seagull isn’t playing for NRG but will ‘be their no. 1 supporter’ so he should be counted as a sub

  3. Dafran has been banned from Competitive season 5 on ALL his accounts, all Overwatch tournament events for the duration of the season, he’s banned from Overwatch Competitors Season Zero and next Season One.. I don’t think he’ll be playing on Selfless for a while. They don’t even have him listed on the team page anymore: https://selfless.gg/overwatch/

  4. https://beta.nightbot.tv/t/eff2ct/commands
    Effect has all his settings/ peripherals.
    According to his stream commands he is using
    BenQ xl2540
    zowie za12
    Mionix Sargas(large)
    !display 1920×1080 (144hz)
    !dpi 800dpi , 4.5 sens
    !hyperx Effect uses the HyperX Cloud Revolver S headset, you can find out more here: http://hyperx.gg/RevolverSEnvyus
    !keyboard xenics storm chaser
    !sens in-game 4.5 / 800dpi / zoom sens 40 (all heroes)
    !settings https://youtu.be/AYIlGtAJ3es?t=2m43s

  5. Does anyone know that the difference is between 1000 hz or 500 hz and how much is advisable? Is it better to disable the accuracy of the windows mouse? Both things are not in the guide, maybe here someone knows

    1. If your mouse has the option to set the polling rate to 1000 HZ use 1000 HZ. The difference between 1000 HZ and 500 HZ is negligible however. Disable the pointer precision option. πŸ™‚

  6. You have GrimReality and Agilities’ sens mixed up. Agilities has 1600 and 3 and GrimReality has 800 and 3.25 πŸ™‚

  7. Why don’t they go for 1440p 144hz 1ms?
    I’m sure their graphics cards can handle it, my 980ti can easily.

    I’m looking at one but now I’m hesitating. Idk why everyone likes 1080 so much when it looks like potatoes and their fps wouldnt suffer from a resolution upgrade..?

  8. Seagull settings from his twitch !sens

    Sensitivity: 11Β½ inches(29cm) for a 360

    1600DPI

    3 ingame

    40 zoom.

  9. Can you add the sensitivities of the players on teams like Blank eSports, Flash Wolves, etc.? πŸ˜€

    1. We will add a lot more players once we know a little bit more about the Overwatch league! πŸ™‚

  10. Taimou actually uses 800 dpi instead of 400 with 5 in-game sensitivity, it can be found in his twitch commands

  11. Sayaplayer is a beast DPS for Meta Athena and his sens is 1000 DPI and 5 in game and 50 scoped he uses the g pro mouse and the G640 mouse pad

  12. Kariv’ sens is complicated because he has different sensitivities for different heroes. 800 DPI / 3-ingame for hitscan , 4 for pharah and genji and 3.5 for others

  13. Lunatic-Hai Gido changed to 400DPI/in_game 7.62 and 41 scoped
    mouse : deathadder elite.
    can be seen from his twitch.

  14. Taimou, Mickie and HarryHook all three use Zowie Celeritas II keyboards, as can be seen in recent videos they uploaded to their channel.
