Having the right settings at the start of your aim training is very important, it allows for consistency across the board. While most settings are preferences, I’m going to show you the ones I use. My settings focus on keeping your eyes healthy, and improving the overall experience of Aim Lab so you can progress quickly on your aim training journey.
How To Find Settings In Aim Lab
Finding the settings in Aim Lab is pretty simple. Boot up Aim Lab and look towards the bottom right of your screen. There will be a settings icon you can click to bring up your settings menu. Now we can go over my settings and why I choose the ones I do. If you hover over any setting while in the settings menu, there should be a tool tip explaining what each setting does.
Best Aim Lab Crosshair settings
I chose a small crosshair that is cyan. You can import a crosshair or use the crosshair creator in Aim Lab. This crosshair is relative to my Valorant crosshair.
My Crosshair Settings
- Length – 4
- Thickness – 2
- Center Gap – 2
- Dot Size – 1.5
- Circle Radius – 0
- Outline Capacity – 0
The color you choose is fully up to you, I do recommend cyan as a color since it does not blend easily with most things in games. Crosshair settings are fully preference and can vairy widely between players. We recommend sticking to something small, or something similar to the game you’re playing the most.
Best Aim Lab Audio Settings
Audio is also preference based off what you like to hear and not hear. I highly recommend having kill sound and hit sound enabled. Most games have hit markers, or some sound when you hit a enemy. I do my best to mimic what is most common in games.
My Audio Settings
- Music Choice – Default
- Master Volume – 50
- Lobby Music Volume – 5
- Task Music Volume – 5
- Weapon Volume – 0
- Enemy Weapon Volume – 50
- Toggle Hit Sound – On – Lip_Sound_1
- Toggle Kill Sound – On – Lip_Sound_1
I recommend having “Toggle Hit Sound” and “Toggle Kill Sound” be the same. If they are not the same, the audio can overlap causing audio annoyances while training. You can pick the sound that is best suited to your taste. I believe having “Weapon Volume” set to zero also helps limit overlap of audio while training.
Best Aim Lab Graphics Settings
We highly recommend you go Fullscreen Exclusive for best performance. You should have display resolution and Hz set to the best possible quality, or that of which you use in the game you’re training for.
- Display Mode – Full Screen Exclusive
- Selected Display – Pick the display you game on.
- Display Resolution – Pick the max Hz and the resolution you commonly play on.
- Display Stretching Ratio – Off
- Max Queued Frames – 1 Low Latency
- Frame Limiter – Off
- If you have this on, be sure to match it to what your monitor can handle.
- Graphics Quality – Fantastic
- If Your pc is weak, you may want to turn this down.
- Post Processing FX – Off
- Muzzle Flash FX – Off
- Shell Casing FX – Off
- Bullet impact FX – Off
- Player Damage FX – Off
- Target Destruction FX – Off
These are the settings I’ve found to be ideal for my setup. Most of the FX settings on Aim Lab hinder your ability to aim and focus, which is why I recommend them to be turned off.
Best Aim Lab Best Visual Settings
Overall visual settings are fully preference but I believe dark mode is the least straining on your eyes as you aim train. Using the default mode or bright modes can easily strain your eyes making your aim training sloppy.
- Graybox Preset – Dark
- Color Mode – induvial
- Element – Main
- Texture – Dark grid
- Override Workshop – no
- Shadows – hide
- Tiling – 0.92
- Reflections – 0
- Smoothness – 92
- If smoothness is low it will create a weird glare effect which can be distracting.
You can change these settings to fit your needs, but I would keep things set to a darker mode.
Best Aim Lab Control Settings
These settings are going to be based off the game you’re playing. Instead of saying the settings I have, I’m going to explain what each settings mean.
- Game Profile – Set this to the game you’re training for, or play the most.
- Game Units – Choose In-game for this.
- Sensitivity – Make this your sensitivity from the game you’ve set as “game profile”
- Field of view – This is also known as FOV in most games, copy the FOV from the game you’re aim training for. Some games have locked field of views, be sure to choose the correct one for optimal training.
- ADS profile – Make this the ADS for the 1x of the game you’re training or what you most commonly use. It is very important that you aim train while using ADS. You can view my guide comparing Toggle ADS and Hold ADS for the reasons why.
- Other Settings – Keep all of the settings past “input settings” to default if you’re not using a controller. I will go over a full controller guide in another post.
These settings are by far the most important, your goal should be to match them to your in-game settings.
Best Aim Lab Game Settings
Game settings are preference. I do recommend having regular as red, this will make all targets red. Red is the most common color for enemies in a game.
- Language – English
- Heads-up Display – On
- Count Down Duration – 3
- Player Avatar – Original
- Player Appearance – Normal
- Target Color – Red
- Target Hit Color – Yellow
- Target Miss Color – Blue
- Metallic – 0
- Smoothness – 0
- Default Camara View – First Person
- Weapon Visibility – Hide
- Weapon Recoil – Off
- Weapon Sway – Off
I would also recommend having weapon visibility off. This removes screen clutter and allows you to focus better.
Best Aim Lab Keybind Settings
I keep keybinds default, I do not have a need to change them as I feel the movement in Aim Lab is pretty rough. If you’re looking to train movement I’d stick to doing that in the game of your choice.
Conclusion and My Thoughts
Having the proper settings are the first step to starting aim training. If you train on the wrong settings it can negatively impact you in-game performance and overall progress of training. As you began training, always remember this is just one part of many skills needed to master the game you’re in.
