I didn't think I would enjoy this game as much as I would.

I love the concept of it, I just find, like with all First Person Shooters, that I'm badly outclassed so as soon as I encounter enemy I just get killed right away.
Cause they have super nice DPI mice and whatever, mine is just a productivity mouse.

Are there any tweaks or things you can do to get better mouse performance, or uh, generally perform better in FPS games?

Also does anyone fancy playing sometime soon?

Haven't played this game yet, but I suppose getting good at it can be a little frustrating as there is a big chance element (drop in the wrong area, run into the wrong person). The tricky thing is the trade-off between looking for more trouble than you can handle and hiding until everyone has better guns.


Generally, if you want to get better at FPS you can follow some steps though:

-learn the map

-if you die, reflect on what went wrong and try to figure out a way to do better; recording your game helps.

-improve hand-eye coordination; I don't think you need a super expensive mouse. My 15€ mouse can do multiple DPI settings. The tricky part is finding a good DPI (trade-off between your ability to turn and your ability to aim) and learning to play at that setting. There are some freeware games that help with reaction time, you can find funny youtube videos of people who are insanely good at that.

Keep in mind that low framerate or bad frame-pacing, both of which plague PUBG can cause input latency issues and even with a $150 gaming mouse you're still going to have issues.


I'd focus more on keeping your FPS up, even at the expense of eye candy to keep response times as low as possible.

To be honest, there's not a whole lot you can do except practice. I have over a hundred hours logged and I'm still absolutely terrible at it, though once in a while I just happen to get a streak of good luck. I would suggest looking up Shroud's settings. He's one of the more popular Twitch streamers and is a fairly good player. If I recall, I replicated his settings and found them to be quite helpful.

Fancypants mentioned getting a mouse with multiple DPI settings. I highly suggest you do exactly that. I am very well aware my mouse is essentially Walmart-brand, but those multiple DPI settings have made a significant impact. I can boost the DPI when gaming, and put the DPI back to sensible levels while doing work stuff.

Good tip, thanks.

I may invest in a proper gaming mouse with DPI settings when I get paid. I quite like my wireless producitivity mouse but I can always swap them out as I need.

Also, don't use wireless, ever. Wireless always dies, and right when you need it most. Always use wired.

Some of the newer wireless stuff is pretty damn good from what I've read. They've pretty much gotten all the dropping and interference stuff sorted but you still have to worry about battery.

I've never played games with a fancy mouse.  It's probably why I've always done poorly online.

If your computer is a meter away, you don't need a wireless anyway. The entire point of wireless is so you can play from the opposite side of the room, such as with a Playstation. With a PC, you stay where the computer is, so just use wires.
