Disable the Shadow Warrior 3 Mouse Acceleration

For some reason, mouse acceleration has been enabled by default in the title, and can’t be turned off from the in-game settings. The setting constantly adapts to the way you move your mouse around. It’s not really recommended if you want to get used to a certain playstyle in any shooting title. Thankfully, you can still disable it by editing the configuration file.

  • Open Windows Run by either pressing Windows R keys together, or by searching for it in Windows Search
  • Enter the following address, and press OK
Players can access various files in their PC using Windows Run
