Finding the best settings for a mouse and keyboard is important as players can plug them in regardless of whichever platform they are playing. But, with the availability of so many options, it becomes a tough task to find your preferable mouse and keyboard settings.

Best Mouse Settings for Modern Warfare 2

Before we look into the best settings for Modern Warfare 2, it is important to ensure that the aiming input device is set to “Mouse”. Now you can start a private match or any online multiplayer to tweak the settings.

Mouse Settings

  •  Mouse Sensitivity: 7 ( if it appears too fast, then lower it to 6)
  • Aim Down Sight Sensitivity: 1
  • Custom Sensitivity Per Zoom: Off
  • Vertical Aim Axis: Standard

Mouse Calibration 

  • Mouse Acceleration: 0
  • Mouse Smoothing: off
  • Mouse Wheel Delay:75

Finding the best mouse settings that would be perfect for everyone isn’t easy. So I would recommend using the above settings as a baseline. If you require more sensitivity when you are using a marksman rifle or a sniper, you can switch on the custom sensitivity per zoom option to get further precision.
