Our Fortnite eDPI calculator simplifies the process if figuring out your ideal Fortnite eDPI. Just enter your mouse DPI (found in your mouse software) followed by your Fortnite sensitivity in the calculator below.
What is eDPI and why do you need it?
eDPI stands for effective Dots Per Inch. It is a numeric value that is calculated by multiplying your mouse DPI with your in-game sensitivity.
Mouse DPI and in-game sensitivity are both variables that affect your overall sensitivity. When comparing several players with these two values separately, it can be difficult to quickly decipher which player has a higher/lower sensitivity.
By multiplying them to make one number (eDPI) it makes it much easier to display the “true” sensitivity. The table below demonstrates this:
What is the best Fortnite eDPI to use?
Most pro Fortnite players tend to use an eDPI between 36 and 72. But consider that eDPI is a subjective setting and can be influenced by external factors such as desk space, mouse pad size, or the players mobility.
We would recommend experimenting with different sensitivities in order to find one which suits you individually.
What is considered low, medium, and high Fortnite eDPI?
|Low Fortnite eDPI||Less than 45|
|Medium Fortnite eDPI||45-80|
|High Fortnite eDPI||More than 80|
How Windows sensitivity impacts your Fortnite eDPI
Fortnite uses raw input, meaning that when in-game your mouse will be unaffected by your Windows sensitivity settings. It is therefore not relevant to include this in our Fornite eDPI calculator.
