To see a list of all Overwatch pros’ gear and settings, take a look at our Overwatch Pros Gear & Settings Guide.
When it comes to the best player in the history of Overwatch, Ryujehong‘s name is always mentioned. As a 2-time APEX champion and 2-time World Cup gold medalist, he has one of the best accomplishments ever.
He has endless amounts of highlight reels, and you can easily spend hours watching him make crazy plays after crazy plays.
Combined with his skills and funny personality, he is also one of the biggest Overwatch streamers as well.
We had a chance to ask him about what gear he uses, mouse driver settings, NVIDIA settings and Overwatch settings.
Let’s take a look.
First thing he mentioned is that you need to use gear and settings that are comfortable for you. Because otherwise, you may not play your best.
Mouse: Logitech MX518 Legendary
Ryujehong has been using the Logitech MX518 series mice for a long time. In fact, it’s the first gaming mouse he ever used.
He got used to it and still continues to use it.
He uses palm grip to hold the MX 518. At first he didn’t even know about different grip styles – he just used a grip that he felt was natural to him.
Later, he would find out about three different grip styles and learn that he is using palm grip.
As with his mouse, he continues to use palm grip because he’s used to it now.
Right-handed Ergonomic Shape
When he first started using gaming mice, there was only one ambidextrous mouse available to him. And he did not like it.
He felt more comfortable using a right-handed ergonomic mouse, MX518 Legendary.
Keyboard: Razer Blackwidow Lite
Ryujehong doesn’t like having keypads, so he decided to use the Razer Blackwidow Lite keyboard.
If he uses a full-size keyboard, that will take up more space and he will have to reach his left arm farther.
But with a tenkeyless keyboad, the WASD keys are closer and he can have his arm at a comfortable distance.
He also gets to save some desk space.
Razer Orange Key Switch
Ryujehong likes the Razer Orange key switches. He heard that it’s similar to Cherry MX Red(it’s actually closer to Cherry MX Brown).
Other key switches he tried tend to make his hand stiff. But that doesn’t happen when he uses Razer Orange, and he also likes the actuation point.
Windows Key Removed
Ryujehong removed the Windows Key from his keyboard.
In his practice facility, Overwatch would randomly get minimized for some reason.
So he thought he was accidentally pressing the Windows key, and removed the Windows key.
However, later he found out that it was actually a problem with his computer.
He lost the Windows key by then, so he just plays with no Windows key now.
Ryujehong puts his keyboard at the edge of his desk.
So if the keyboard is flat on the desk, he has to curl his fingers to reach the keys.
He solves that by using the keyboard feet. His fingers can be at more comfortable position while the keyboard is elevated.
Headset #1: David Clark H-USB
David Clark H-USB is the headset used during Overwatch League season 1 and 2, as well as homestand matches in season 3.
Headset #2: Razer Kraken V2 – Quartz Pink
Outside of OWL matches, Ryujehong uses Razer Kraken V2 in Quartz Pink color.
He just liked how unique the color is, so he decided to use it.
Monitor: HP Omen X 25
HP Omen X 25 is the monitor used for OWL matches. Also all the players during season 2 of the Overwatch League used this monitor during practice.
Ryujehong continues to use it because he got used to it now.
He got to experience 240Hz monitor all the way back in 2016, when it was not widely available yet.
He really liked how smooth the screen looked, so he always had in mind that he wants to use it someday.
That became true when the inaugural season of Overwatch League started, when all the monitors on stage were 240 Hz.
He continues to use 240 Hz even today.
No Screen Size Preferenes
As long as the monitor is not shaped like ultrawide monitors or anything like that, he doesn’t have a preference in screen size.
He just uses 24.5″ monitor now because he got used to the HP Omen X 25.
Mousepad: Steelseries QcK Heavy – Large
Ryujehong has been using the Steelseries QcK Heavy mousepad since he was young.
It has enough friction that he can stop his mouse quickly.
He tried different mousepads such as glass mousepads. But he didn’t like how slippery it was, and the grinding noise it makes.
Cloth mousepad – specifically QcK Heavy – felt right for him, so he continues to use it.
He tries to replace his mousepad with a brand new QcK Heavy once every month.
Chair: COX Voyager
COX is a Korean company that makes chairs as well as other computer peripherals.
Unfortunately, it is currently unavailable in the United States.
Ryujehong doesn’t have much preferences in gaming chairs, but he needs adjustable arm rests.
He has seen a lot of gaming chairs with straight arm rests that can’t be adjusted, and they are not comfortable for him.
Mouse Bungee: Zowie Camade
As with many of his other gear, Zowie Camade is the first mouse bungee Ryujehong used.
He tried other mouse bungee such as QUAD Gaming Rock, but the cables would pop out when he moved his mouse too strong.
Logitech G Hub Settings
Ryujehong has 2 DPI’s in his profile, 400 and 800.
He usually uses 400 DPI, but in certain situations he switches to 800 DPI with the on-the-fly DPI adjust button.
For example, if he has to turn 180 quickly, or if his mouse is at the end of the mousepad but he needs to go more, he changes the DPI to 800.
Polling Rate Settings
The higher the polling rate, the faster your mouse position gets reported to the computer. So he uses 1000 Hz, which is the highest available.
Ryujehong’s old computers used to have bad specs, so he used to turn most options off in NVIDIA Control Panel.
He still uses the same settings today. Here are Ryujehong’s NVIDIA settings:
