Elevate your gameplay with some tweaks to your keybinds and settings. While you're at it, why not use a professional's settings?

Even though I have dabbed in a little bit of EFT here and there, and wasn’t aware of Pestily, until I saw a fan-made montage of his EFT clips. Possibly one of the best EFT players in the world, and one of the most influential ones for that matter. A common thing which happens in FPS games, is that players are very curious about the settings and keybinds of players from such a caliber. So, we went ahead and looked for Pestily’s settings.

Pestily’s Settings & Keybinds – EFT

Pestily’s is a former military member which might explain the technical and combat knowledge he has. Surely, some of it has transferred over to EFT.

In any case, let’s get down to peripherals and gear first:

Pestily’s Peripherals

For his mouse, Pestily uses a Corsair Sabre, which isn’t the most competitive FPS mouse out there, but it is definitely top-of-the-line. As for his keyboard, he uses a Corsair K95 RGB Platinum MX Speed.

I sense a recurring theme here, it seems like Pestily uses mostly Corsair products and evidently, his headset is a Corsair Virtuoso, and his mousepad a Corsair MM350 Extended XL.

The monitor is a Acer Predator XB271HU and his chair is a Herman Miller Aeron, which isn’t a gaming chair per se, but recent research suggests that office chairs are arguably more ergonomic than gaming ones.

Pestily’s Mouse Settings

One of the most important settings are the mouse settings, which are:

  • Sensitivity – 0.75
  • Sensitivity Aiming – 0.55
  • Double Click Timeout – 0.3
  • Mouse DPI – 450
  • Inverted X Axis – No
  • Inverted Y Axis – No
  • Polling Rate – 1000Hz

Pestily’s Keybinds & Controls

This is more of a personal preference, as whatever works best for you is probably best, but Pestily does have some optimized settings. Here are his keybinds:

  • Movement – W / A / S / D
  • Smooth Lean Right – D & L-Alt
  • Smooth Lean Left – A & L-Alt
  • Lean Right – E
  • Lean Left – Q
  • Fire & Aim – Left & Right-Click
  • Switch Scope – L-CTRL & RMB
  • Switch Scope Magnification – L-Alt & RMB
  • Free Look – Mouse Wheel Down
  • NVG – N
  • Mumble – Y
  • Time – Y
  • Tactical Device – T
  • Next & Pervious Weapon – Mouse Wheel
  • Interact – F
  • Grenade – G
  • Reload – R
  • Check Ammo – T & L-Alt
  • Fire Mode – B
  • Prone – X
  • Sprint – L-Shift
  • Duck – C
  • Inventory – Tab
  • Jump – Spacebar
  • Knife – V

Of course, some of these settings are the default keybinds, but usually, that’s what most players use if I’m honest, more competitive players as well. It is the usual FPS button layout.

Pestily’s Graphics Settings

For graphics settings, you might expect ultra-low settings like most professional players. But Pestily is a bit different and more forgiving when it comes down to using higher settings.

While most of Pestily’s settings are lowered to their minimum, I suggest doing so for all settings instead of using Pestily’s as that is a pretty common practice in profesionall play. Less graphically demanding settings, the more of a competitive advantage you’ll have because of the higher frame-rate.

In any case, these are Pestily’s settings:

  • Resolution – 2562×1440 – 4K
  • Screen Mode – Borderless
  • Aspect Ratio – 16:9
  • V-Sync – On
  • Texture Quality – High
  • Shadows Quality – Medium
  • Object LOD Quality – 2
  • Overall Visibility – 2000
  • Shadows Visibility – 0
  • Anti-Aliasing – TAA
  • Resampling – 1x Off
  • HBAO – Off
  • SSR – Off
  • Anisotropic Filtering – Off
  • Sharpness – 27
  • Lobby FPS Limit – 60
  • Game FPS Limit – 120
  • Z-Blur – Off
  • Chrome Aberrations – Off
  • Noise – Off
  • Grass Shadows – Off

Like I said earlier, do as lower graphics settings as possible. Content creators, such as Pestily in this case, use higher graphical fidelity settings, mostly for viewing pleasure. Not many like to see pixelated graphics.
