Now is a perfect time to look at the setup of the absolute king of Jett and arguably Valorant's biggest star – Tyson "TenZ" Ngo.
TenZ is a big inspiration for a large part of the community interested in the competitive scene. And no wonder – not only his gameplay is quite remarkable, but also the path he has taken to get to where he is now. As we've just started a new Episode, many of you are probably determined to get even higher on the ranked ladder and maybe even try to make it to the VCT circuit. That said, let's take a look at the settings and gear that TenZ is using in 2022, a player who can definitely say that he managed to fulfill his "eSports dream" last year.
Sentinels TenZ: Gear
|Keyboard||Xtrfy K4 TKL|
|Mousepad||Artisan Zero XL Soft|
|Monitor||ASUS ROG PG259QN|
One interesting fact about TenZ's gear is that his mouse is precisely customized for his hand, and he's been using it since about the second half of 2021. His headset and keyboard choices may result from his collaboration with Xtrfy; TenZ previously used a Sennheiser Game Zero and HyperX Alloy Origins Core for a very long time.
Moreover, TenZ has a lot more gear in his house, and sometimes he uses additional keyboards/monitors, which you can see on his stream, but we focused on the ones he uses for his gaming sessions specifically.
Sentinels TenZ: Video Settings
Despite using ASUS GeForce RTX 3090, TenZ has all possible settings on low, like most pros and streamers. Valorant is still not optimized well enough, and playing it on high settings comes with a risk of the game freaking out in various ways (audio cutting out, screen freezing when seeing another player model, etc). So, if you find yourself in this article because you want your game to run as smoothly as it does on TenZ's stream, keep in mind that it's primarily due to such low graphics settings.

Mouse settings and keybinds are a very personal thing, especially considering that TenZ has a gear customized for his hands. But still, it's a good thing to get inspired by, just remember not to copy it blindly; mess around and try to customize them for yourself.
