How do you find the DPI of your mouse? I legit have no clue ;-;

If you know what type of mouse you have you could look it up probably.
600/6

Trying to find a balance between being able to instantly turn around as Winston while not screwing up my Ana/Mccree aim too much.

i play at 3.25 in game and 1000 dpi :)

I played at these settings for the longest time. Recently I knocked it down to 3.0 on all heroes except tracer.
800 dpi 1.15 in game sens.
I'm on PS4, my sensitivity generally is 43, but its pretty much almost different for everybody.
I have 2400 DPI and play at 2.7 sens in game. For Ana and widow scope sens i have it set to 35 (30 is normal scope sens)
1600 dpi
11.50 Mercy
6.00 for everyone else
dropped down some some what to around
6 in-game
1600 dpi

forever a wrist player.. :(
1600 dpi, 2.0 sens, recently bumped up from 1.5 as I'd like to be a bit more flexible with my hero picks and 2.0 allows me to pick tracer or Winston a bit easier.
10.00 default I use my mouse to adjust it mid game with it's button.
1600 dpi, 1.50 in game.

I used to play with 2.0, got annoyed with over-compensating my aim and missing every shot on Widow, Ana, and McCree. Eventually just swapped to 1.50 and feel much much better. My Winston sens is 3, however.
I must be doing somethin wrong, 1200DPI and sens 35.00... But its slow af if I set it vanilla... Is there an option that I fail to see?
My gf thinks my sensitivity is pretty low, but it’s not my fault I can’t read her mind
Just saying, but posting your sensitivity without posting your DPI means we still don't know your actual sensitivity,

I use 3 different sensitivities:

1600 DPI on all heroes

Hitscan/Tracer (Aim-Heavy Heroes): 2.15 in-game
Genji/Pharah/Winston/Reinhardt: 4.5 in-game
Every other hero: 3.5 in-game
Scoped sens (Widow/Ana): 38

My sensitivities vary quite a bit, from 36 cm/360 to 15 cm/360. Works really well for me though. I play flex DPS, so I actually switch between the different sensitivities a lot even while in-game.
16 sens/2540 dpi
Stating sensitivity is useless if you don't also state DPI.

Usually you just look it up or set it manually.

An easy way to figure it out though (assuming you have your windows sensitivity to 6/11 ticks).
1. Open up MS paint.
2. Move your mouse an inch on your mousepad to draw a line.
3. Subtract the end pixel coordinates of the line from the beginning coordinates.

Round to the nearest 100. That should give you a rough idea.
Most standard mice are either 400 or 800 dpi.

Doesn't that mess up your muscle memory a bit? I once tried to play few games with lower sens than usual and then went back to sens i was comfortable with and my aim was all over the place.
800 DPI, sensitivty 5.95 in game
