    Are you trolling or did you just actually admit to not trying both but just saying one is better.
    It's EA, you can easily assume Steam is better

    To be fair, it's going to be very hard for anyone to do a better job with a digital content delivery platform than Valve has with Steam, and even if Origin does turn out to be good, people won't switch to it because they have too much invested in Steam - because Valve has done such a good job with it.

    Play around with your sensitivity until you get something you are comfortable with. It'll be worth adjusting your FOV (not sure if you can on BO though) too to something more appropriate.

    Keep sensitivity high. Well.. try and get used to it, progress to it if you have to. The best players will use high to very high sensitivity levels.

    Heck, at least use the middle ground. I watched my friend play and it literally took him 3 seconds to turn 180 . It was so annoying to watch ಠ_ಠ

    Sharpshooters will want to turn down the sensitivity a bit, or it's impossible to get a decent bead on a target at long range.

    Aye, one of my favourites to be honest, just something really entertaining about it & a bargain at 1p...I paid substantially more than that when it was new :facepalm:

    Play COD4 not BlOps, COD4 is still very much alive on PC with good prize pots in tournaments to boot COD games on PC are a lot different, high level gameplay is much about movement as aiming. Like Keckers said change the FOV, which is field of view, basically 90 FOV is 90 degrees view, the higher the FOV the more you see but can effect how you see stuff because much more is squeezed into an area so it can be harder to see stuff.

    Ignore this, depending on the game the "best" FPS players actually use very low sensitivity, from COD to CS, Quake is slightly different as it such a twitched based shooter. I play on really low sens, 450dpi with 1.3 in COD4 and I am not slow, but I tell you what I am, damn accurate

    AoC is very much alive, Blood and Glory ruleset is fun if you don't mind droping the odd item and getting ganked by Spaniards

    Hmmm, how come they play on really low sensitivity? I play on really high sensitivity on CS but my friend who is badass at it plays at a really low one too.

    Thats just wrong.

    I have watched tournaments, online and in person, and played in them. No1 will use a 'very low sensitivity' . For obvious reasons. Utterly ridiculous.

    On CS it is important (Much me so on CS 1.6) to be able to control recoil, it is very precise and with high sens it very hard to control such precise movements. People think "what if I get shot from behind, i cannot 180 and kill them" Well if you are playing against people even half decent and they come from behind, you are dead! Accuracy matter! In CS one little bullet makes all the difference and with low sens you can place your shots a lot better, yes it takes long to get to but is ultimatly a lot better for the majority of players. It is quite hard to explain really but there is VERY few top FPS gamers that use high sens, besides quake and even then it not that high.
