I need help adjusting my sensitivity!

For some reason, 3 feels too high and so does 2 but then I went to 1 and it felt WAY too slow. I need help deciding.

Mine is 2 and people tell me that's way too low. But when I try 5 and over I get dizzy, moves way too fast. Use what is more comfortable for you. Everyone is different

LOl.....I have played on 2  99% of the time... and can handle 3 for the most part ....I tried 10 (max) and well can you say blind drunk on a treadmill...... just pick a setting that is close to your liking and you will get used to it after a while......I have some friends who use the max setting .......and some like myself who dont.......

If you want to raise your sensivity you should go step by step... You should play with 2 till you feel good with it... If you want to raise, raise on 3 but don't hesitate if you don't figure it out in the first game... Play a good dozen of games, if you don't like it step back to 2...

Repeat this till you reach the stage which suits you and your playstyle...

By the way i'm playing at 6....

Go on Black Ops (if you have it) and play Combat Training. The sensitivity values of Black Ops are actually higher than in other games. e.g. 4 in BO is actually high, unlike other games where it is 2.

renessaince666 had the right idea. The sensitivity is really based on your own feel for it. Personally, I had to boost mine up alot higher just to feel like it wasn't dragging. Nothing more upsetting than knowing you're getting backshot because you can't turn around at the sound of gunfire fast enough.

This is what you should do:

Change your sensitiviy to five. You will find it really hard to control at first, but its fast enough to turn and kill someone beside you. Eventually, it will get better and you will start getting used to it. I used to play on 2-3 and then moved to 5, after that I've been moving it around, step by step and I now play with a 10 sensitivity.

I played on 2-3 all the time and was constantly wondering how people were turning so fast and strafing or flanking me and I just couldn't keep up with them. I watched some youtube vids and one of them suggested something and I tried it and it seemed to work pretty well.

Basically go into a private match with yourself. Set your sensitivity on 10 and just run around and goof off with it, then gradually bring it down until you can run around the map comfortably and you have a good feel for it. I wound up setting mine to 5 and I haven't looked back and my game play has improved quite a bit when lag isn't an issue. However when I get on the wrong end of the connection I still consistently lose every 50/50 gun fight.

I played on 2 for about 10 prestiges,but then realised that if an enemy and myself run past each other,that he was always turning hipfiring and getting the kill. Im now on 4 which feels just right.
