What are the best Warzone 2 mouse and keyboard settings?

Before taking a deep dive into the mouse and keyboard settings in Warzone 2, head into the options and select the Mouse and Keyboard tab. Make sure your mouse is plugged in and connected and the aiming input device is set to "Mouse."

With everything ready to go, head into a private match or a few games of battle royale to tweak your settings. We recommend a private match so it doesn't impact your stats.
