How to Change Camera and Mouse Sensitivity on Roblox

If you don’t know which button relates to which action, keyboard and mouse maps can help you to do that. There are some controls that are set in stone and cannot be modified. However, the game administrators have the ability to do that but can only change other keyboard controls.


In order to move the camera in all directions, right-click and drag your mouse. This control is available in all of the Roblox games. However, there are several actions you must take in order to change the camera and mouse sensitivity.

Here are all the easy to use procedures for adjusting Roblox’s Camera and Mouse Sensitivity:

  • First of all, you have to open and play any game from Roblox.
  • Press the Esc key and then hit on the Settings button.
  • Now adjust and change the Mouse Sensitivity to suit your needs.
  • Depending on your taste, you can also adjust the Camera and Movement Mode from here.

In Roblox, you will find two camera modes: one is Classic, and another one is Follow. You can swap between these two camera modes while playing in the game as long as the game administrator doesn’t set the camera mode.

If you choose the Classic camera mode, the camera will be fixed in one location. By holding down the right mouse button and moving it, you will get the ability to change the pivot point of your avatar, which is great.

However, if you choose the Follow mode, the camera rotates with your avatar, which will actually help you to keep your shown targets in view.
