[Top 3] Dota 2 Best Mouse Settings That Give You An Advantage

In Dota, there are various settings that are outside the software’s reach, meaning some settings are purely hardware reliant. These settings are extremely helpful and may even change the way you play the game. 

To help you get the best out of your gear, we have compiled this list of the Best 3 Mouse Settings that are guaranteed to give you an advantage!

3. Macro Settings

If you’re a man of culture and you own one of those shiny and magnificent-looking gaming mice, you may know there are various different buttons alongside the basic ones. These buttons can serve a great deal of purpose if you know how to use them correctly. Heroes such as Meepo and Tinker can benefit massively as you can bind their spells on these buttons, making your job ten times easier and surprising your buddies with your great gameplay! Macros are totally safe and legal in Dota.

2. DPI

DPI (or simply Dots Per Inch), is a vital component for any mouse setting. It essentially measures how sensitive your mouse is, meaning the higher the DPI of the mouse, the more sensitive it is. A DPI between 800 to 1200 is generally great for Dota, as you don’t require pixel-perfect precision. 

1. Mouse Sensitivity

Mouse sensitivity can play a great role in determining your gameplay, especially if you’re a new player. It is generally recommended to use a Windows sensitivity of 6/11 without any smoothing. This can be done by accessing the pointer options under the Mouse section in Control Panel.
