My standard DPI is 1800 but my ingame sensitivity is like 1.0 or something :P
I've got two DPI Levels: Standard (1800) and Gunning (500), I swap between the two with a macro on Mouse 5. The reasons being the tank/LAV/Attack Heli's gunner weapon is WAAAAAAAY too twitchy for me to use normally so this alleviates the problem somewhat. Although its a pain in the arse if you get out to rep the vehicle and you forget to toggle the DPI back :pinch:

Mouse DPI is all a matter of preference. Some people will recommend less than 1000, some people would say over 2000. It all depends on your windows sensitivity, ingame sensitivity, and how large of an area you have for your mouse.

I personally use 1150 DPI on my Zowie EC1, I have a very small area to use my mouse in, and so I need to have higher sensitivity to be able to aim properly with the small amount of space available. I only have a separate DPI setting for long range sniping, which I hardly ever do, that one is set to 450 DPI, so roughly half, or as close as I could get, my mouse doesn't allow custom DPI settings.

The best thing you can do is make sure that your raw mouse input is on, so you have no mouse acceleration, and to just play around going up or down in a few hundred DPI increments until you find something you like, nobody can really tell you what the right or wrong sensitivity is.

I use Zowie AM which has 3 options for DPI: 450, 1150 and 2300. I'm using the 1150 which is closest to the one i used before (800). I dont really need to switch DPI ever.

Seems to affect the main gun in MBTs as well as the gunner seat, and since the Gunner is massively more sensitive than the main gun I'd essentially be doing the same thing only I'd be putting my DPI UP when driving instead of down when gunning :pinch:

Zowie master race allows me to have 1150 DPI. I would switch to 450 for tank gunning, but I'm usually the driver, so that never happens.

@Aenonar
Vehicle sensitivity does work, but there is such a large difference between using the main cannon and the .50 on the top.

My E-3lue Cobra has three settings: 400, 800, and 1600DPI. Typically use the middle setting most of the time and screw with the game's sensitivity in order to find tune it, but I'm thinking of switching to 1600DPI whenever I get into a tank. Speaking of tanks, I wish they had a collision box, too. Clotheslining people with the barrel would be so much fun :D

EDIT: I think I have the in-game sensitivity for BF4 set to 60% infantry, 75% for vehicles.
