Finally, after the long-awaited release and patchy launch date, Blizzard has drawn the curtains on Overwatch in favour of Overwatch 2.

Thankfully, the game still features its heavily customisable settings, being able to adjust your HUD to your perfect preference. Here are the best mouse and keyboard settings to use in Overwatch 2.

Best Mouse Settings in Overwatch 2

When you play Overwatch 2 on the PC, you'll need to keep up with the other players. It'll be a lot faster than using a controller and you'll want to make sure your slow input won't cost you a win. Here are the Best Mouse Settings in Overwatch 2:

  • DPI – 800
  • Sensitivity – 3.5-6
  • eDPI: 4000-6200
  • Zoom Sensitivity: 30-40
  • Polling Rate: 1000Hz
  • Allied Health Bars: Always
  • Show Friendly Outlines: Always

Best Keyboard Settings

Unlike controllers, where everything is within ease of access, you need to get a little bit creative with a keyboard and mouse. Making sure everything is within close reach so you're not stretching your fingers across the keyboard. 

  • Ability 1: Left Shift
  • Ability 2: E
  • Ultimate/Ability 3: Q
  • Primary Fire: Left Mouse
  • Secondary Fire: Right Mouse
  • Equip Weapon 1: 1
  • Equip Weapon 2: 2
  • Quick Melee: V
  • Reload: R
  • Voice Chat Push to Talk: F

Naturally, you'll be able to change these to your own personal preferences, but these are the ideal settings to at least start off with. 

Now get out there and enjoy the game, remember that you can adjust these settings however you wish if they don't seem to be quite working for you.
