I have absolutely 0 problems in css, csgo, eft, and apex. People literally think I cheat in css/csgo because of some counter strafe headshot stuff I do in DM I can flick and move my mouse perfectly fine and line up any headshot I want comfortably. Then I play valorant and the moment I get into DM or a game aiming feels terribly off. I don't know what it is. I have disabled full screen optimizations checked which helped a lot but there's SOMETHING still there. I can't put my finger on it. But something just makes me whiff shots. I can't track horizontally the way I want to. I think it's a combination of the slow movent and locked 103 fov which feels terrible compared to cs's 90, but there's something else. I'm most likely uninstalling the game. I'm not putting time in to improve when my aim is being hindered. It's funny because everytime I'm missing shots I wouldn't normally miss, I boot up cs to make sure it isn't me and I go back to hitting insane hs's. I was plat 3 solo queue a while ago then quit and I just felt like trying it again and I'm just turned off my how bad it feels to play. I want to like and enjoy the game but everytime I play it makes me miserable not being able to control my aim or trust my shots. It sucks.
For some clarity: No vsync is not on, no mouse precision is not on, my fps is 300, my mouse pad is clean, my mouse sensor is fine, my Nvidia cp settings are optimal, nvidia low latency is on, etc etc. I can notice bad inputs immediately from sense and muscle memory so I have all the boxes checked.
(I have 2k hours in apex, 2k hours in eft, probably 2k+ combined in old 1.6/css, been fps gaming for 15 years so I know when something isn't right.)
and before anyone says git gud I'm not complaining about my skill level in valorant, just aim sesntivity/built in smoothing that hinders my ability to aim. There's more to the game than just aiming which is fine, but when my aim is being handicapped I can no longer take it seriously. I know how to hold a mouse and hit consistent headshots. So why does a 17 year old game have better raw input than valorant?
- no way I can do this consistency in valorant due to limitations. These are mostly bots plus 1 player but still. I can do the same in an actual match and feel comfortable doing it.
I'm also not hating on valorant. It's fun but it's limiting.
