Basic Settings

Basic Settings is the initial setting of a game. Divided into three parts namely the Firing, ADS, and Gyroscope Settings, the basic part has another portion namely the Advance Settings Options. For beginners, the Aim Assist should be turned on as they do not have a close-to-perfect aim. All the shooting options are recommended to set ‘Tap to fire’.

A higher frame rate means a smoother experience. So, always select the highest frame rate option as per your device’s capability. However, high graphics quality puts more pressure on a device’s GPU, causing fluctuations in frame rate. You can try to keep the graphics quality low. But, if your device can handle the framerate smoothly while on higher graphics, you can go for that so you can experience great animations and game graphics.

Sensitivity, Control, and Sound Settings

Each player has a distinct playstyle. According to one’s preference, they need to choose the control settings and the matching sensitivity according to their control. Play some matches to try different sensitivities and set one as you need. However, an overall sensitivity is given below.

Overall Sensitivity

Sensitivity Adjustment On
Overall Sensitivity Custom (Try several numbers for each)
FPP Free Camera (Focus) Off
TPP Free Camera (On) On
Free Camera (Focus) 200%
Sensitivity Acceleration 100%

For the sound settings, always try to set the sound high for interface effects, gun sounds, enemy’s footsteps, etc. while a low sound is recommended for less important things such as Background Music. Good communication among teammates increases the chance to succeed. So, the voice sound should be kept at a higher level.
