Nivera Valorant Settings & Gear

The Valorant community has known him for literally a month, and everyone already knows he is a player to watch out for in the future. Let's see what he uses in his gaming setup!

Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom is a player the community hasn't taken so seriously until very recently. Sure, he's ScreaM's younger brother, etc., but he's barely finished his CSGO career and has only been in Valorant for a short time. As the EMEA Last Chance Qualifiers showed, the fact that he's been in the game for just a month didn't change much. He has shown that he is one of the better players in the region and qualified for Champions thought his first tournament, and those are the kind of players we want to be inspired by. That said, let's see what settings and gear Nivera uses to score these clean frags.

FPS LimitsNone

As you can see, Nivera plays in 4:3 resolution instead of 16:9. What could be the reason for this? Well, probably a concern for a higher frame rate, since (as we discussed in one of our videos) it doesn't really affect the gameplay in any other way in Valorant.

Liquid Nivera: Keyboard & Mouse Settings

As for the keybinds, everything is default except the Abilities 1 & 2.

Ability 1F instead of Q
Ability 2A instead of E

It's probably a matter of nothing more than just maximizing the comfort. He could probably play on default binds, but even the smallest details matter when it comes to the highest level gameplay.

As for his mouse preferences, all these settings with odd numbers may indicate that he tried hard to recreate his settings from Counter-Strike. Or maybe he really searched for perfect settings and spent hours finding numbers that would work with his muscle memory.

Liquid Nivera: Crosshair

It's virtually the same crosshair that Chronicle of Gambit Esports uses, only it's yellow. Both players were our last players of the month and won two of EMEA's biggest tournaments. Coincidence? We don't think so. But jokes aside, that tiny dot that gently stands out on the map is a very optimal crosshair setup that you might want to try out.
