Gears of War 3 Sensitivity Settings Guide

Some of you may remember the Gears of War 3 Beta Sensitivity Guide I published on the Major League Gaming Website, well this is the updated, video version of that guide.  Many of the same concepts that applied in my MLG guide, still hold strong in the full version of the game.  The basic sensitivity control settings have been fine tuned from previous versions of the game and my explanation of such is below:
Taken from My MLG Guide (slightly revised):

Gears of War:

  • Look Sensitivity: Low, Medium, High

Gears of War 2:

  • Look Sensitivity: Low, Medium, High
  • Target Sensitivity: Low, Medium, High
  • Zoom Sensitivity: Low, Medium, High

In contrast, look at what’s available for Gears of War 3:

  • Look Sensitivity: 1 – 20
  • Target Sensitivity: 1 – 20
  • Zoom Sensitivity: 1 – 20

Classifying Sensitivity Settings

By “classifying settings,” we refer to identifying a type of player or playstyle based on the settings. The fact that there are now more options along each slider allows for players to fine-tune their settings to something far more personalized. The classification for sensitivity settings is as follows:

  • 20 – 17 (Very, Very High)
  • 16 – 13 (Very High)
  • 12 – 10 (High)
  • 10 – 8 (Medium)
  • 7 – 5 (Low)
  • 6 – 4 (Very, Low)
  • 3 – 0 (Very, Very Low)

Look: Used when hip firing, general movement, and wall bouncing.

Target: Used whenever the sights are held down. “L Trigger” in default control scheme.

Zoom: Used as the secondary zoom function on the Snub Pistol, Boltok Pistol, Longshot Sniper, and One Shot Sniper.
