Who is Shroud?
Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek is a 28-year-old Canadian professional Valorant player for Sentinels. He is from Canada but is currently staying in California.
Shroud is a former professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player for Cloud9. He retired from competitive CS: GO back in 2018 to focus on his streaming and content creation career. Thus his return to Valorant as a professional was a shock to his fans yet.
Shroud has a natural talent for first-person shooting games such as CS: GO and Valorant. He also plays Apex Legends, Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodhunt, and The Cycle. He usually reaches the top rank of every FPS game he plays, even reaching Apex Predator during the early days of Apex Legends.
He regularly streams on Twitch and is constantly pulling around 40,000 viewers. Sometimes even higher.
Shroud also landed a $10 million exclusive streaming deal with Mixer before the company folded. It was one of the biggest deals in streaming history. He returned to Twitch after Mixer failed to gain success.

Shroud plays competitive Valorant with Sentinels. As an FPS legend, he sure does have a lot of followers interested in his settings. Look no further, for here they are.
Shroud Mouse Settings
Shroud is using a Logitech G303 Shroud Edition mouse. However, he sometimes tries other mouse if ever a company or a sponsor sends him one.
|Raw Input Buffer||Off|
Shroud’s mouse settings took a lot of trial and error to perfect. Feel free to test it out but you should adjust it to your personal preference too. There is no such thing as a 1:1 copy because no gaming setup and player are the same.
Shroud Crosshair Settings
Shroud is known for his great reflex and quick flicks. He is able to do this by setting his crosshair to a precise size wherein he can see his enemies and click on their heads easily.
Here are Shroud’s crosshair settings.

Shroud Map Settings
Shroud sets his map so he can easily monitor what is happening from the other side. The mini-map is an essential tool that is powerful when utilized properly. It helps with planning, rotation, and attack.
This is Shroud’s mini-map setting.
|Fixed Orientation||Based On Side|
|Keep Player Centered||Off|
|Minimap Vision Cones||On|
|Show Map Region Names||Always|
Shroud Valorant Video Settings
Shroud uses a mix of high and low settings though the majority are either turned off or set to the lowest. These settings allow him to reach a high number of frames while keeping the graphics acceptable – not that boxy and still presentable.
He needs a high number of frames-per-second because it is advantageous in competitive esports titles. Lower than 240fps and professional players cannot react quickly or flick from one side to an enemy.
Playing at 60fps also feels sluggish especially for professionals like Shroud, who are using 240Hz monitors.
Here are Shroud’s video settings.
