Highest possible brightness. Most pro players also you the BenQ monitor with black equalizer which makes black spots brighter so it’s easier to see enemies.

Generally low settings, not to make the game faster (not only at least), but also to remove unnecessary shadows.

f0rest mouse settings

Low mouse sensitivity, raw input and NO mouse acceleration. Mouse acceleration in Windows should also be turned off.
