Overwatch Pro Settings and Setups – An always updated list on the Settings and Setups used by Professional OW Players
Overwatch is an ever-growing phenomenon. It has become an international e-sport with over 25 million people playing. Several big organisations are joining the scene to prepare for the upcoming Overwatch League. Unsurprisingly, a lot of players are interested in the settings (like mouse DPI, mouse Hz, OW sensitivity / zoom – sensitivity, FOV, Resolution) and setups (mouse, monitor, mousepad, keyboard, headset, computer, chair) of professionals like Seagull, Shadder2k and Surefour.
We have tried to gather all the information for you in this sortable table. Using the sensitivity, mice, keyboards and other settings of professionals is always a good start for newer players. Adjust the settings to your liking and try different mice or keyboards until you feel comfortable.
It might also be interesting to note that most professionals use low-medium graphic settings. Forced bloom, refraction detail and similar lighthing settings can take quite the toll on your hardware and have to be set to low. However, adjust your overwatch settings to your personal liking. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable with them. You can find an in-depth guide on the perfect video settings here.
The settings and setups of Overwatch professionals can be incredibly hard to find. This list is a work in progress so please don’t hesitate to write us in the comments if you see anything that is wrong. We really appreciate your support to make this the best resource possible.
Not every Overwatch professional is using the perfect mouse though. To make sure you are buying a mouse with a ‘perfect’ or ‘superior’ sensor, check our List of Flawless Mice for reference.
We also recommend using an adapter to play Overwatch with a mouse and keyboard on your Xbox or PS4. You can find the excellent Xim 4 Keyboard and Mouse Adapter here.
