My mouse is incredibly busted and my scroll wheel fires off 'scroll' events randomly. It's really bad for games like Dota 2.

How can I prevent the camera from zooming with the mouse wheel? I'd prefer to even disable zooming entirely.


Open your console and use this command dota_camera_disable_zoom "1".

This will disable the zoom entirely.

To open the console you need to rightclick your DotA2 in steam and go to properties-> set launch options. There you need to add -console and start DotA2.

If this resets every time you start DotA2:

Open your DotA 2 Folder (...\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\cfg) and create a new file called autoexec.cfg. Insert the above command into this file. This will automatically apply above command each time you start DotA2

  • Much appreciated!
