There are other settings aside from controller or mouse sensitivity that may enhance your gameplay experience. If you are having trouble with how the game looks, you can disable the World Motion Blur and Weapon Motion Blur settings to make your visuals a little bit sharper.

You can also adjust the in-game interface such as the HUD, weapon crosshairs, and even the map shape and orientation. To adjust all of these settings, follow all of the steps above and instead of visiting the Quick Settings menu, scroll down to Interface.
