To make it easier for users, we have brought you the best sensitivity settings which can make your gameplay smoother and help you get more of those headshots.

Free Fire sensitivity settings: why is it important?

Sensitivity plays a vital role in all FPP or TPP games especially when you are playing it on a smartphone. When playing a game like Free Fire, you need to keep your eyes on several factors, such as your movements, acquiring loot, keeping watch for enemies, taking down opponents, and a lot more. Instead of using your phone’s default sensitivity settings, you can try using custom sensitivity settings to enhance your gameplay experience.

Free Fire: how to adjust sensitivity settings?

Here are the sensitivity settings we recommend. However, do note that these might not suit all smartphones due to hardware restrictions. If these don’t work for you, you can reset to your default settings.

  • First, launch the Free Fire game on your smartphone.
  • Once you’re on the homepage tap on the settings icon placed at the top-right corner of the display.

  • You will see the Sensitivity tab on the left column.
  • Slide your finger along the various sensitivity settings to adjust them, or press reset to go back to default settings for your smartphone.

Free Fire recommended sensitivity settings

We recommend keeping the general sensitivity high because it will allow you to move freely and also allow you to attempt 360-degree headshots which is a tough job on the smartphone. Usually, gaming enthusiasts take advantage of the emulator to attempt such shots.

On the other hand, the red dot sensitivity is recommended to be on the higher side because it will help you in taking moving shots while using the red dot more smoothly. We are not suggesting these settings out of the blue because we have tested all the recommended sensitivity settings and finely tuned them to make the gameplay seamless. Do note that, smartphones from different brands do come with different hardware and screen response rate so if you face any difficulty with the above-given setting then there is always room for making changes. Finally, make sure you practice using the new settings once applied so you get comfortable with the increased sensitivity. All the best for your gameplay.
