If you are new to CS2 and cannot figure out how to change your sensitivity in-game or are looking to convert some other game’s sens to CS2, then this is going to be the perfect guide for you. We’ll teach you how to change your sensitivity in CS2 and how to convert some other fps’s sens to CS2 within seconds.

To change your sensitivity in CS2, enter the settings and go to Keyboard/Mouse settings, where you’ll be able to spot the Mouse & Zoom Sensitivity multiplier as well. Adjust it in small intervals until you land on the perfect sensitivity that lets you do a 180-degree rotation from one end of the mousepad to the other

Let’s take a look at these settings and the suggested method for converting your sensitivity between fps games to keep your aim consistent in CS2.

First, try adjusting the mouse sensitivity while keeping the zoom sens at 1.00.

It’s very straightforward. Here is how you can change your sensitivity in CS2:

  • Go to the Settings menu by clicking on the cog in the top left corner of your screen.
  • Go to the Keyboard/Mouse tab.
  • There, you’ll see the Mouse & Zoom Sensitivity Multiplier.
  • Adjust accordingly and then back out once you are satisfied.

The best practice is to keep adjusting your sens until you can perform a 180-degree rotation in the area of the mousepad that you utilize while playing said fps game.

This was pretty basic. What if you are coming from other FPS games like Apex Legends, Warzone, or Valorant? Well, we’ve got you covered on that front as well.

Do CS: GO and CS2 have the same sensitivity?

You might also be wondering whether CS: GO and CS2 share the same sensitivity values or not. To answer your question, Yes, CS: GO & CS2 have the same sensitivity. However, some players have been mentioning that their old sensitivity doesn’t sit right with the new game.

They’ve had to go a few notches up or down. We believe this is entirely based on you and has no solid ground. If your rig, mousepad, mouse, and everything else have been the same as you’ve transitioned between the games, your sensitivity should feel the same.

You might want to try playing with a few points up or down just to get a feel for it and see whether you want to stick to your sens or try something new.

That’s how you can quickly change and convert your sensitivity in CS2. You can also check out our guide on some of the best crosshair settings & codes you can choose in CS2. For more informative CS2 coverage, stick with WIG!
