Top 5 Best R6 Controller Ads Sensitivity
This SAT skin set really fits Echo and Hibana’s roots as Japan’s special operators

5. High

The high value numbers in the ADS sensitivity may look low to players who are used to high sensitivity- like 60-ish, especially if they got used to the old school sensitivity system in R6 where players could not change the individual ADS sensitivity per zoom levels. But I really wouldn’t recommend going over 45 on your ADS sensitivity because it’s quite rare for players to have to adjust their ADS aim in a big way. So, these high ADS sensitivity settings are good for players who are used to high sensitivity aiming but don’t want to compromise their recoil control.

  • 1.0x Magnification - 31
  • 1.5x Magnification - 41
  • 2.0x Magnification - 41
  • 2.5x Magnification - 43
  • 3.0x Magnification - 45


4. Standard High – 43

This is for players who prefer high sensitivity even while in aim-down-sights (ADS) position, but want their sensitivity to remain the same regardless of the zoom levels. The benefits of this are that the uniform values will make it so that the player won’t get a ‘shock’ whenever he or she is using different zoom levels from before. So, this is great for players who love high sensitivity, but want it to remain the same for every gun they’re using.

  • 1.0x Magnification - 43
  • 1.5x Magnification - 43
  • 2.0x Magnification - 43
  • 2.5x Magnification - 43
  • 3.0x Magnification - 43


3. Balanced

With this ADS sensitivity value, you’ll still be able to make some quick big adjustments to your aim without compromising that much on your recoil control. It also puts the lower zoom levels in lower values than the higher ones because in most situations, the lower zoom level scopes will be able to adjust their aim horizontally or vertically faster, so there’s not a lot of need for them to have high ADS sensitivity values. The 2.5x and the 3.0x scopes though are put in a disadvantage at close range so making their ADS sensitivity values higher can balance that out. That way they can make quick adjustments in close range when the enemies are on the sides.

  • 1.0x Magnification - 21
  • 1.5x Magnification - 33
  • 2.0x Magnification - 33
  • 2.5x Magnification - 36
  • 3.0x Magnification - 36


2. Standard Low – 24

This is a pretty low value for a uniform ADS sensitivity setting across all zoom levels. And this is very high on the list because it is generally recommended to keep your ADS sensitivity low, because in most cases in R6, you wouldn’t be making huge adjustments to your aim in any direction while you’re in the ADS position. You would do that while you’re out of ADS, and about to aim again. With low ADS sensitivity settings, it’ll be much easier to control your recoil and aim. 

  • 1.0x Magnification - 24
  • 1.5x Magnification - 24
  • 2.0x Magnification - 24
  • 2.5x Magnification - 24
  • 3.0x Magnification - 24


1. Low

This is what I’m personally using. There are champions in xbox who recommend to go as low as you can on your ADS sensitivity because as I’ve said above, when you’re already aiming down your sights, it means you’re getting ready to shoot and not really to scan the surroundings. With low ADS sensitivity like this, there’d be less chance of your aim and recoil to go out of control. I put my lower zoom levels in lower values because it’s usually easier to look around left and right with them as opposed to higher zoom levels. And when you’re entering an objective area with high zoom levels, it’ll benefit you if you can move your scope easier.

  • 1.0x Magnification - 18
  • 1.5x Magnification - 23
  • 2.0x Magnification - 23
  • 2.5x Magnification - 26
  • 3.0x Magnification - 26
