Want to find out how to change your sensitivity in Battlefield 1? Great, because in this short guide I’ll show you the simple steps to follow in order to do so.
Personally I found the ADS sensitivity too high, but the regular sensitivity too low; thankfully you can customize both of these, which was very beneficial to me. So let’s get into the steps!
1) Head Into ‘Options’ and Select ‘Controls
You can do this directly from the Battlefield 1 main menu, by scrolling over to ‘More’ which you will be able to see within the top menu.
Alternatively, if you want to change your sensitivity within a game, go onto the menu and scroll down to options that way.
2) Change Your Soldier/Vehicle Sensitivity
After selecting ‘controls’, you should see three percentages on your screen for three sensitivity options. Let’s briefly break down what each of these mean:
- Soldier stick sensitivity – this is how sensitive looking around will be. (default is 20%)
- Vehicle stick sensitivity – this is how sensitive looking around in a vehicle will be. (default is 20%)
- Soldier zoom sensitivity – this is how sensitive looking around will be when you are zoomed in with a weapon. (default is 100%)
I would recommending increasing both the soldier stick and vehicle stick sensitivities, as you want to be able to look around as fast as possible. I personally use 30% for both, but I would recommend that you experiment on the campaign to find the best level for you.
In games such as Call of Duty, changing your sensitivity also affects the sensitivity when aiming, so it’s harder to play with higher sensitivities, since it’s very hard to aim.
However, on Battlefield 1, you can change the soldier zoom sensitivity independently; I would definitely recommend lowering your zoom sensitivity, in order to maintain a high accuracy when aiming.
You don’t want your gun flying all over the place, especially since the time to kill is quite high in Battlefield, so you have to put a fair few bullets into your enemies to kill them. This makes it vital to keep your gun on your target using small and precise movement.
How to Change Advanced Sensitivity Options
If you don’t feel as if the basic sensitivity options are precise enough for you, head onto the ‘Advanced’ column in the same controls menu.
Here you’ll see a wide array of sensitivity options, most of which you probably won’t need to change. However, one particular section that I’d like to draw your attention to is the ‘vehicle sensitivity’ section.
Here you can change things like tank, plane and turret sensitivity, which you might want to have a play around with!
