Starfield Aiming sensitivity: How to match Look & Aim sensitivity
Bethesda has always struggled to get aiming right in its first-person shooter games, and Starfield is no different with the aiming and look sensitivities wildly different by default.
Unlike most other first-person shooter titles, the camera sensitivity when you look around normally and when you aim down the sight of your weapon is vastly different. By default, you’ll find that your camera sensitivity is much lower when aiming down sights, which can be frustrating when you’re trying to be accurate with your shots.
Thankfully, there is an incredibly easy workaround to this issue in the game - and it doesn’t require any mods! So, here’s how to match your Look and Aiming sensitivity in Starfield.

Why should you match Aim and Look sensitivity in Starfield?
It’s mostly down to personal preference, but matching your Aim and Look sensitivity in Starfield can drastically improve your aiming muscle memory - at least on PC.
Most competitive shooters like VALORANT, CS:GO, and Call of Duty all utilise a linear sensitivity between looking around normally and aiming down the weapon sights. This means that well-practised players know exactly how far to move the mouse to shoot at an enemy, no matter which aiming mode they’re using.
However, having different sensitivity for your Aim and Look camera settings can be beneficial if you’re using a controller. This is because it can be much harder to aim precisely with a controller when the camera sensitivity is set too high.
As such, players using a controller may wish to leave their Aim sensitivity on a lower setting, while PC players may prefer to keep their aim and look camera settings uniform.
That’s everything you need to know about how to match your Aiming and Look sensitivity in Starfield.
