Prod’s Valorant Settings
Your in-game settings can drastically impact your gameplay and can be a deciding factor in determining your overall skill and performance. Many players tend to copy the settings of popular streamers and professional players as these settings have been carefully crafted by them for optimal performance. Let’s explore the settings used by Prod in detail:
Although Prod became an internet sensation at the beginning of 2022 and gained a surge of followers on Twitch, not much is known about his personal life. He actively maintains his Twitter and has an Instagram, but he keeps his personal life far from his professional one. However, the following are some known facts about Prod:
|Date of Birth||April 25, 2002|
|Region||North American (NA)|
|Current Team||(Free Agent)|
|Former Team||The Guard|
Valorant is knowns for its precise aiming and movement mechanics. No matter how good of a game sense you have or how well you coordinate your team, you’re always at a disadvantage if you’re not winning your duals. Hence, having a mouse sensitivity that you’re comfortable with is necessary to make your aim consistent.
If you have watched Prod’s clips, you must have seen him hitting crazy flicks and 360-degree Jett’s daggers while Updrafting. He plays on relatively high sensitivity, as his eDPI is close to 400.
However, most professional players prefer lower sensitivity for better micro-adjustments using their wrists.
High sensitivity does allow you to flick to targets in your tunnel vision pretty quickly, but the accuracy with it is always questionable unless your skill ceiling is as high as Prod. If you are well-adjusted to playing on low sensitivity, Prod’s eDPI is not recommended. In any case, his mouse settings are given below.
|Polling Rate||1000 Hz|
|Raw Input Buffer||ON|
Prod is not known to customize his key bindings and usually feels comfortable with the default keys in Valorant. However, he’s cautious with his ability usage. Instead of using the default key ‘Q’ for the 2nd ability in Valorant, he prefers the side button of the mouse. Many players like TenZ bind their signature abilities to their extra mouse buttons for quick and optimal use.
The ability keys of Prod are as follows:
|Ability 2||Mouse 5|
While your crosshair may not be as important as your aim sensitivity, it still crucial to have a crosshair that’s not too distracting or takes up a lot of space on the screen.
Prod doesn’t have a fixed crosshair and keeps changing it depending on his mood. He rarely uses dynamic crosshairs. His most popular one is a simple white crosshair with inner lines having outlines. The code for that is given below:
You can simply copy the crosshair code provided above and import it in your game. However, if you are not familiar with how that works, you can check out the individual crosshair settings of Prod below so you can tweak yours accordingly.
|Center Dot Opacity||0|
|Center Dot Thickness||2|
|Show Inner Lines||ON|
|Inner Line Opacity||1|
|Inner Line Length||2|
|Inner Line Thickness||1|
|Inner Line Offset||2|
|Outer Line Opacity||0|
|Outer Line Length||0|
|Outer Line Thickness||0|
|Outer Line Offset||0|
Due to the nature of Valorant’s accurate shooting and peaking mechanics a difference of even a couple of milliseconds can decide a dual. A player with a 240 Hz refresh rate and increased FPS would always have an advantage over someone with say 60 Hz refresh rate and lower FPS. So, even if you have to compromise on the looks of the game by reducing the graphical quality and visual fidelity, getting a high FPS and low lag is totally worth it.
Almost every professional player or streamer keeps the graphical settings at their absolute minimum to get maximum FPS and reduce the input latency. Similarly, Prod keeps his graphical settings low and visual effects or frame-limiting options turned off. Furthermore, he plays at native 1920×1080 resolution with a 4:3 aspect ratio.
His complete graphical settings are shown below.
Prod, like other streamers and pros, uses high-end gaming gear. Now, this type of gear is not necessary to play Valorant as the game’s requirements are far lower and it’s not a GPU-intensive game.
However, having a good rig is essential for streaming. Prod has never really done an official setup or room tour on his Twitch or YouTube, but we are aware of the following gear and peripherals he uses.
|Gear||Make and Model|
|Monitor||Alienware 240 Hz|
|Mouse||Logitech G Pro Wireless|
|Keyboard||HyperX Alloy FPS Pro|
|Microphone||Audio Technica AT2020|
