Players have been reporting a strange CS2 mouse acceleration issue.
Although players are using the same settings as CSGO some are saying that it feels off.
Here are the reasons and how to fix them…
CS2 Mouse Acceleration Main Problem Causes
The main issue that is causing this for players in CS2 is the law of a Raw Input option.
Activating the raw input mouse setting in CS:GO allows the game to directly process mouse input from the hardware, enhancing the accuracy of crosshair movement. Without this setting, mouse input begins to have some sensitivity issues and begins to feel slugish.
But this issue is mainly due to our Windows settings conflicting with the in-game settings. Mainly from the ease of access setting that smooths out mouse movement. This setting is designed for web page browsing and not so much precise gaming.
How to Fix
Firstly, we want to make sure CS2 is not running in the background so make sure it is closed.
We want to head over to the Control Panel which we can do so by typing it in via the Windows search bar.
Within the Control Panel we can click on Ease of Acess and then the Ease of Acess Centre.
Here we have two settings that can be the main cause of the issue:
- Enhance Pointer Precision – This is also known as mouse acceleration. It is a feature in Windows that adjusts the sensitivity of the mouse based on the rate at which the mouse is physically moved. Although, this setting may cause the mouse to be less precise overall so we will turn this off. Click on Mouse Properties, Pointer Options and below pointer speed simply uncheck the box and hit apply.
- Ease of Acess Mouse Acceleration – Click on Setup Mouse Keys and you will be shown the pointer speed sliders. If this is not set all the way to Slow on Acceleration than this will be what is causing the issue. Simply move the slider all the way to the left and hit apply.
With both these settings changed you should now be experincing the raw mouse input you are used to from CSGO in CS2!
However, this fix is handy but given how many players have reported this it is safe to say that Valve may introduce raw input settings upon the full release or on later updates.
Hopefully these fixes have sorted out the problem for youin the meantime as we wait.
