9-14 inches per 360 is the gold standard
0.79 sens ratio
there u go D O N E

20 inches is cool because you can walk into people and it's literally impossible to miss

So quite a few top scouts played/play with sens outside of the supposed golden range. Even very notable players such as Stark, Ruwin, Schocky and Cookye, although marginally for the latter two.

A smaller sensitivity / bigger distance is recommended and common for scout because you want to be accurate, and large distances mean the small inaccuracy in movement is less major. It's a tradeoff between faster twitches and increased accuracy, that's heavily weighted towards accuracy because that's more important for scout and many scouts recommend against twitching entirely. But it's all entirely preference and it's up to you to figure out what your current aiming style would improve more with.

For fov_desired 90 (it's different for every fov_desired but basically everyone uses 90):

zoom_sensitivity_ratio 0.793471413188092380619906740908785437547348780566443970924

Basically just gives you a 1:1 between unscoped and scoped. You'll see a lot of variations on that number (from 0.75 to 0.83333), but that's the actual value.

even tho this is the calculated good zoom sensitivity ratio i doubt a lot of invite people use it since most of them are probably just used to 1.

it takes a very long time and thousands of hours of work to find the perfect sens... and i can help you get there

Fireeven tho this is the calculated good zoom sensitivity ratio i doubt a lot of invite people use it since most of them are probably just used to 1.

I always just assume when someone asks for top players' sensitivities that they're asking for a good one to use. Unless you're trying to archive them, but you'd probably try to ask for entire cfgs and just scrape the sensitivities out then.

Most players I've seen don't use that zoom_sensitivity_ratio but that's mostly out of habit for snipers, and not playing sniper for non-snipers. The difference between 0.833 and 0.75 isn't that big (depends on a bunch of things but iirc 16.4 inches/360 on 1920x1080 makes the difference be just a couple pixels when moving across your entire screen), so it shouldn't really matter even at a high level.

For how long this scene's been around though that's relatively new information and most snipers stick with the default 1 (which is supposed to be good for twitch shots when you use the edge of your screen for reference, but idk) or go a bit lower (as low down as 0.5) because they want to be more accurate and are used to essentially having two different sensitivities. It's still a personal preference at the end of the day, but I can't really recommend it to someone who isn't already used to it or specifically wants to. Somewhere around 0.79 is pretty favored for newer snipers though, at least as a starting point until you can actually examine what aspect of aiming you're lacking in.

Thanks, but is there a more recent one?
