In this article, we’ll drive you through TenZ’s new and updated VALORANT settings that you need to know. So you can tweak your settings accordingly and get even better at the game.
Tyson Ngo, more commonly known as TenZ, is a North American VALORANT esports pro currently playing for Sentinels. Formerly, he played CS:GO professionally for Cloud9. But after TenZ took part in the closed beta for VALORANT, he had so much fun that he immediately decided to pursue VALORANT esports as a career.
Though it was a risky step taken by him, it became fruitful down the line because he started to show immediate results after switching. TenZ even became the first player to reach VALORANT rank, now known as Radiant.
His dedication to the game proves how much he loves and enjoys VALORANT. And he has the results to back it up. Sentinels won many notable tournaments with TenZ’s breathtaking plays. His flashy gameplay with pinpoint accuracy made him one of the best players in the world.
TenZ’s New VALORANT Settings
To make flashy plays, TenZ uses specific VALORANT settings. These settings definitely do not make TenZ one of the best players in the world, but they surely help him stay consistent. Each video setting in the game, keyboard, and mouse settings, as well as mouse sensitivity, are all adjusted to match his playstyle.
Also, keep in mind that pro players like TenZ tend to change their VALORANT settings quite a lot. The changes are always very minimal and remain in a specific range. So, it is always suggested to follow pro players’ VALORANT settings but not mimic them exactly, as they might not fit your gameplay style.
So, without further ado, let’s find out what settings TenZ uses so you can tweak yours and take your VALORANT mastery to the next level. You should go through each setting and find out what suits you best and use it exactly or modify it to your liking.
