Not sure why it gets so much hate on this site, but if you buy a Razer mouse you can just download Razer Synapse 2.0 off the website and configure the DPI adjuster to any button on the mouse.

DPI is adjusted at the hardware level, so no piece of software will let you adjust it on the fly. There might be software that lets you adjust the Windows mouse sensitivity with a hotkey, but I highly recommend against it, because any setting other than the middle causes the mouse to skip pixels, reducing accuracy.

tl;dr: Buy a better mouse.

EDIT: BTW, you can set the vehicle sensitivity independently from aiming sensitivity in BF4.


I hear ya on the vehicle sensitivity but it's universal for all vehicles and there are specific ones that I like to tweak.

Well in BC2 at least, you could tweak each vehicle in the ini files. I haven't messed around with BF4's inis yet to know if it's the same deal.

Plus the 400s has a superior sensor.


oh, boy. here we go again...

g700s user here. no problems with my "inferior sensor", at work or home. have the people bashing "inferior mice" even used one?


You have no problems because you don't play at a low sensitivity which leads me to believe you don't play FPS games competitively.

The sensor itself is flawed no matter how much you want to believe it has no problems.

G700S fanboy here. I will say that I have noticed SOMETHING up with the sensor when I move it very slowly/play at low sensitivities (which, of course, is 99% of FPSs). I couldn't really tell you WHAT was wrong with it, though, and I really don't think it's impacted my ability to play.

It does if you play on a competitive level, if not you're fine. It's a probem with the sensor itself and the way it tracks on certain surfaces. The sensor also has some acceleration built in, meaning you can never get a perfect 1:1 movement ratio.

Also, I has code tags is I cool noa?

It is my understanding that 98.5% of all mice have built in acceleration.

There are mice out there without this crap, and that's the hardware you should be looking for.

Like the G400S?

There are other mice as well, that's not the only one.
