If you want to know the best settings for Competitive play in The Finals, we can help. Since The Finals’ release the game has been an explosive and competitive experience. Televised Game Show Tournament is after all the theme of the game. And as with every other competitive setting, having an edge over your opponents can be crucial. Read on and we will go over Best Competitive Settings in The Finals. 

Best Competitive Settings in The Finals 

As with other FPS games, to give yourself an edge in Competitive play the more FPS you have the smoother the gameplay will be. Along with the focus on FPS, some other settings will help you gain an edge over your opponents. Everything we will mention in this guide can be changed in the Settings menu in The Finals. The following are the best settings for Competitive play in The Finals:


Make sure that the Use enemy team colours option is set to On. This will help you easily identify enemy teams during the match. Knowing what team you are currently fighting can mean the difference between winning and losing a round. 

Another thing you can change in the Gameplay tab is the Crosshair. Because Crosshair settings are an individual matter, there isn’t one best option for everyone. Tinker with this option until you find the best one for you.  

Controller and Mouse & Keyboard settings 

The same goes for the Controller, Mouse and Keyboard settings as for the Crosshair settings. We are all different and there is no best option here. Change key bindings to fit your play style and to be comfortable to use and you should be good. We can only recommend keeping the Mouse Focal Length Sensitivity Scaling set to On, which will keep the game feeling more natural.
