Needless to say, Garena Free Fire is a super competitive game. You'll be surprised at how far Free Fire players are willing to go in order to gain advantages in the fight. But today, we won't go into details about the illicit tools and mods to basically cheat the game. We'll take you for a ride on DPI settings for Free Fire and show you exactly what they can do to improve your gameplay.

What is DPI?

DPI is short for Dots Per Inch. It's a technical term that indicates the sensitivity of your device and system. In other words, the DPI value measures how sensitive the device is via the number of individual dots. This, called dot density, counts the dots that fit within 1 inch (2.54 cm) only.

So basically, the DPI  displays the exact number of pixels in 1 inch of space. The more dots in the space, the higher the figure, and the higher the dot density.

How DPI Affects Your Gaming Experience?

If you're a gamer, then you probably know how DPI can affect gaming. The higher your DPI value, the faster your mouse moves on the screen. On the PC platform, gaming mouses often have built-in DPI programs that allow users to change the value according to their playstyle.

To illustrate, let's say your mouse has a DPI value of 1,000, then as you move it one inch (2.54 cm), the pointer on the screen moves 1,000 pixels.
