A Deadzone is a setting that lets you configure how responsive you want your stick to be. This means that the stick will only register the movement once it has moved past the Deadzone that you have set.
The lower you have this setting, the more responsive it will feel. A high deadzone will require you to move the stick further before your car responds to the movement.
Most Rocket League pros tend to use a range from 0.05 (5%) to 0.15 (15%). It is suggested you to start with around 0.15 as it can be harder to play the lower you go.
The Dodge Deadzone is a specific type of deadzone setting that only applies to Rocket League and determines how far your stick must have moved in combination with you pressing your designated jump button whilst airborne in order to initiate a 'Dodge'.
Steering & Aerial Sensitivity
Sensitivity determines how quickly your car will turn based on the movement of the controller. A High sensitivity will cause your car to move/turn very quickly with a very small amount of stick movement. A Low sensitivity will cause your car to move/turn very slowly with a large amount of stick movement.
Steering Sensitivity specifically refers to any movement whilst your car in on the ground.
Aerial Sensitivity specifically refers to any movement whilst your car is in the air.
