Your sensitivity?

General Discussion
Hello friends!
Question for PC players:
Just out of curiosity, what is everyone's dpi, and in game sensitivity?
And if you know / can test, how many inches do you have to move your mouse to perform a 360 degree turn in game?

I have 1600 dpi, with 2.65 sens, which is about 15 inches of mouse travel for a 360.
Most heroes I use 1,233 dpi, but for snipers I use 800 or 1,000 dpi, depending.

My mouse has a button that lets me swap between sensitivity settings I set, so I just hit it when I switch heroes
I use 4000dpi with 1sense. And this is very close to the same as you.

Is there certain advantages to high dpi, low sensitivity over low dpi, high sensitivity?
If so I might go all out to 12000 dpi :)
I use 800 DPI and 3.70 in game
1600 dpi and 1.5 for McCree and Soldier, 2 for everyone else atm. 45 scope.

A high dpi like 4000 means mouse jitter and is not advised. Keep it under 2000.
800 DPI and 6 In-game. I'm a main tank player so super ridiculously low isn't necessary.
800 DPI and 7 in game.

Not really, but DPI too low can technically make too big of jumps when the mouse recognizes a dot change. Probably recommended to be at least 1600, but 800 probably only has fractions of pixels being skipped over and is barely noticable. If you really wanna know how bad it can be... set your mouse as low as possible for DPI and scale the game sense up. While you will still be able to turn 360 with the same amount of mouse movement, it should feel jumpy.
I use 1800 dpi and 30 sensitivity, which is about 1 inch/360.

I don't get how you guys can play with such low sensitivity.

EDIT-Also, I control my mouse with my fingers only, I don't really move my arm or wrist much at all. It just works for me.

Holy crap.

I thought mine was pretty high, and I only play with 1600 dpi and 5 sensitivity.
That's how you lose games. You need to start at least gradually decreasing your sensitivity.

I didn't even notice but I have the exactly the same dpi and sensitivity as seagull. Interesting information, thanks.
If you aim with your wrist instead of your arm, you will naturally have much higher DPI than most arm aimers.
I use 1600 dpi as It is what I prefer to use on my desktop but with a low sensitivity of 2.5 in game which feels good for quick turning and aiming at the same time. I also use 35 scope sens and use a Logitech g403 if that helps too, since getting as new mouse and changing my sens I have climbed 1000 sr this competitive season so far and look to keep on going
4 Sens/800 Dpi, using the entire arm to aim.
G502 is my Mouse.

I use the g403 and I love it. The PMW3366 sensor is fantastic.

Ha you are telling me, I had a cheap wireless Logitech mouse and did not think I would improve so much by changing my sens and equipment, last season I was bronze https://imgur.com/a/man3N and now after one week I have risen to gold and finding the game a lot easier https://imgur.com/a/VYLHe nothing to write home about but I am enjoying the game so much more, and hope I can climb to platinum/diamond by the end of this season.
