The best way to improve in Free Fire is to increase your aim accuracy and precision. The first thing you need to do in order to improve is to tune your sensitivity settings and play with them. In this article, we are going to list out the best sensitivity for Free Fire Auto Headshot in Mobile 2021.

1 - What is sensitivity in Free Fire?

Firstly we need to understand the nature of sensitivity in Free Fire. It is the measure of angular movement that a player could achieve with one swipe of their finger. If the settings are not optimal, players can feel the crosshair moving too fast or too slow.

2 - How to gauge your own sensitivity settings?

  • Firstly, jump into practice mode to remove all disturbances and run to a big open spot on the map.
  • Swipe your thumb from the middle to the right edge of your screen.

  • Cover the maximum distance possible to see if the crosshair has moved 180 degrees or not (this is a standard move that everyone should be able to do in order to counter sneaking enemies from behind).
  • Finally, if you are covering a wider angle than 180 degrees, decrease the sensitivity. On the other hand, if you are covering a smaller angle, increase it.

3 - Beginners' sensitivity settings

There are some recommended sensitivity settings for accurate headshots in Free Fire for beginners in order to tune in easier. Below is a suggestion:

  • General – 100
  • Red Dot – 100
  • 2X Scope – 90

  • 4X Scope: 52
  • AWM Scope: 45

Aside from sensitivity settings, the following options also increase your performance in the match.

Basic Settings

In order to get the best performance, it is best to lower your graphics settings by one level. If you are at Ultra, tune it down to Standard and so forth. The shadow should be Off. About Minimap, it is best to pick the North Up style. With it active, you should be able to know your location without having to open up the map.

To win, it is best to turn the music down or even off. That is not needed while playing Free Fire. Leave the sound effect and voice high so that you can hear the footstep of your enemies and communicate with teammates.

Auto Pickup

You should just enable everything in this section. Overall, fast pickup items then run to cover to drop unneeded stuff is much easier to do than manually picking them up. You can also turn the auto pickup speed to FAST.

The last category, Control, is very important. It lets you turn on and off various gameplay features.

  • Aim Precision is Free Fire's aim assist feature. This is very important, as a mobile game just doesn't have the precision of the usual mouse and keyboard. Just leave it at Default or Precise on Scope, as Full Control would remove all aim assists.
  • You can try the option "hold fire to scope" to shorten the process of sniping into just 1 button.
  • Quick reload and quick weapon switch can save you a lot of time.
  • Vehicle controls should be left as default. If you are familiar with the normal option, there is no reason to change it at all. Auto parachute could be turned off so that you can control your landing manually.
  • The other sections in the settings do not affect the gameplay at all.
