July 11, 2023: Season 4 Reloaded is finally here and we've adjusted the best mouse and keyboard settings so you can continue competing against controller players with ease.

The best Warzone mouse and keyboard settings are extremely important if you plan on gaining the upper hand in Season 4 Reloaded. While many opt to use a controller in Warzone, there are plenty that drop into the action with a mouse and keyboard for some additional precision.

With so many settings to choose from, it can prove tricky to determine the optimal settings but after a bit of testing, we've managed to find a set that's perfect to use alongside the best guns and weapons.

Before we reveal more about the best Warzone mouse and keyboard settings, take a look at our other guides showcasing how to get The Boys Operators and when the next double XP event is taking place.

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.

Best Warzone 2 mouse settings

Mouse calibration

It's tricky to find mouse settings that are right for everyone. Try the above settings as a baseline and adjust them as and when you need to. For some additional sensitivity when using a sniper rifle, switch on Custom Sensitivity Per Zoom for some extra precision.
