I've been playing CS:GO for a while now and I've had countless problems that I have come across and have had to fix, which is a real shame because its a great game.

Anyway, what happens is that when I move the mouse without pressing down any buttons on the mouse (right click, left click and the wheel button), the mouse works fine, but as soon as I press any one of these buttons the mouse goes crazy, like the sensitivity is 100x higher.

Can anyone think of a solution?

It's only on CS:GO, no other games and a few other people seem to be having the same problem.

    Im thinking it's a mouse software issue. perhaps your mouse keys are bound to mouse sensitivity? You can check this is the software for your mouse (different for every mouse). Commented Jun 3, 2016 at 10:10

    @RustyMembers So do I think. Especially with Logitech I'd turn the software off. Commented Jun 3, 2016 at 10:12
  • I have one of those free mouses you get with dell... but ive never had any problems like this before and it doesnt affect me on any other game Commented Jun 3, 2016 at 10:22

The first and most obvious suggestion - make sure your drivers are up to date. You never know just when one driver goes on the fritz, so making sure that everything is up to date and working is always a good start.

Next, as suggested, make sure the buttons aren't bound to sensitivity commands, as that would cause you chaos.

If you have access to any other mice and the problem persists, try swapping the mice around to see if that makes any changes.


To check if it is a bind problem open the console (tidle key) and type bind mouse1. What should come up is do making along the lines of "mouse1" = +attack if there is anything else there then you found your problem. To solve this you would then type`bind mouse1 "+attack"
