How to convert your VALORANT sensitivity to Overwatch 2

A simple mathematical equation will help find the sweet spot when converting VALORANT sensitivity to Overwatch 2. Take your VALORANT sensitivity and multiply it by 10.60. As an example, if VALORANT is set to 1, then Overwatch 2 would be set to 10.60 or as close as the game allows.

The Aiming.pro website makes this equation quick and painless. Input your current VALORANT sensitivity and choose to convert it to OW2. Then hop into the Overwatch sequel and make the change. The site has dozens of games available to choose from and even has an advanced option for DPI calculations.

Just note that this only applies to mouse sensitivity and not controller sensitivity. And one game may call for the setting to be higher or lower, depending on your playstyle. A good plan is to convert the VALORANT sensitivity to Overwatch 2, head to the Practice Range to test it out, and tweak it to your liking.
