Sensitivity? There is none. Everyone has their own favourite, I have 2.44, some have 1.80 and some have 3.40+. I don't recomend going below 1.80, or above 3.70, but again thats my opinion.

I cant recommend a specific DPI since either my mouse has no DPI menu or I just cant find it, but DPI and in-game sensitivity are purely personal, there is no best sensitivity, sure a slow sensitivity is bad, and you're not going to aim well with a REALLY high DPI, personally, I run 3 in-game sensitivity (mouse acceleration off, obviously) and the second slowest DPI for my mouse, it feels good for me and I can aim decently with it, just play around with sensitivity and DPI until you find something that feels right for you.

As the others have already mentioned, it ultimately comes down to personal preference and what you feel most comfortable with. Since your mouse DPI and in-game sensitivity are different settings (if you have raw input and whatnot enabled), you have to figure out what works best for you. Personally, I have 2 DPI options so that I can switch my sensitivity depending on the situation. Normally I use 800 DPI with about 2-2.5 sensitivity, and if I use the DPI hotkey it bumps my DPI up to 1200 while keeping the same in-game sens (mostly used in close range sniping).

High DPI and low sens is better but I still use 800 DPI and 1.75 sens because I don't want to change and get used to aiming again.

Every person is suitable to a different DPI and sensitivity. It also depends on your playstyle and preferations. Me personally, when I fight long range battles, I switch to a lower DPI and sensitivity with the button above mouse wheel. And on the opposite, when you fight in a melee-ish range battle or just mid-range, you can switch to higher DPI and sensitivity, to flick and keep up with the enemies' movement.

My personal DPI: 4K
Sensitivity: 3.14
(I use this set as an universal between long range and short range)

I play TFDB as well, Acceleration is good for that and I'm used to it, changing it will only make me worse. Even at sniping

I use 1600Dpi and 3.21 in game sens. If you’re doing close quarters headshots then i’d say 800dpi with the same in game sens
