Best m_yaw Setting

The best m_yaw setting is personal preference. There is no best setting for this command. However, there are common settings that users might prefer to use:

4:3 m_yaw Setting

If you're playing on 4:3 stretched resolution, your horizontal sensitivity will be higher than your vertical sensitivity. For this reason, some players will set the m_yaw setting to the following value so that the two sensitivities are consistent (on a 16:9 aspect ratio monitor):

m_yaw 0.0165

16:9 m_yaw Setting

If you're playing on a regular 16:9 monitor (1920x1080, 2560 x 1440, etc and want a consistent x/y sensitivity, this is the recommended setting for this command:

m_yaw 0.022
