Aim at your best with Sensitivity Tweak

Playing Cod4 for the first time can be really a hit or miss affair. In the long run, you will notice that you will likely have issues with aiming. In this part, we will talk about Sensitivity tweak for the game.

Sensitivity is defined as how fast the crosshair moves on your screen, or in hardcore, how fast your mouse look /aim will be.

The default value for the sensitivity in Call of Duty 4 is  "5" , this can have a lot of trouble with most players with bad hands and somewhat delayed reflexes. What you are going to do is lower it to make your hand and eye corrdination be in sync with what you are doing.

Mostly you can never have to follow an enemy with high sensitivity as it will moreover move faster than the target.

Here are the General Rules of the Thumb

Non-scoped Weapons:

5= Default (fast enough for Melee players but your aim will suck on long range

4= Lessened (this is for Pros that want fast enough mouse look but never recommended for beginners)

3= Moderate mix of good handling and mouse look

2= Best for Sniping (you can now sway the crosshair on a line easily

1=slowest of them all (this is for completely nervous people with unwanted muscle reflexes)

For Sniper Rifles, it is a different story. To be accurate, you need to dramatically lower your sensitivity. Thanks for the comments guys. I have actually been better with less sensitivity for scoped weapons. Here are some recommended values.

3= Good Sway but a little hard to adjust your aim to the target.

1= Great start for lowering your sensitivity. The M40 sniper rifle (default) can now hit targets over the end of the sniping areas over crossfire.

Below 1= It is up to you to decide on this. The accuracy is impeccable but you can never get to look at your side easily. 

A good thing to add is bind your keys to lower sensitivity while on your sniper rifle. Just bind it over your f9 and f10. Just type in the console \bind f9 sensitivity 1  and so on...

The best option is to go for "2" as it has all the mix for higher accuracy and everything you need.

How to change the sensitivity:

During gameplay, press the tilde key "~" (below the esc button) and type in sensitivity "x" , press tab and enter.

Note: Modern Warfare 2 doesn't have any console to type in. Instead just change the mounse sensitivity on to the options menu.

It's only the noobs and the people who think they are pro who use such high sense. Real pros go for extremely low sensitivity, for better control. Don't believe me? Download some configs and try 'em out yourself.

Those are for assaults. Snipers value is there. However, I would never recommend rushing with that sensitivity. Also the higher DPI mouses will have different results. Mine is just 800dpi and it works fine.

I'm using a lower sensitivity than 1 and it rocks! I can snipe better now but of course the trade off is using assault weapons. But anyway, it was worlds apart especially in having a better kill/death ratio.

Hey this tutorial is shit ;) Sorry, but:

The Ingame-Sensitivity has nothing to say about how fast you can move your crosshair.
There are other settings important for your aiming:

DPI, Polling-Rate, Windows-Sensitivity, ...

Pro-Gamer usually use low sens because they get much control on long distances !!!
But that doesnt mean that you cannot look to your sides:

My Settings:

Mouse: Steelseries Xai
DPI: 1200
Rate: 1000 Hz
Windows: 6/11
Ingame: 0.8

And i can easily look to both sides.

Stevy for example is using 2000 dpi, 975 hz and ingame 0.45
