Best CSGO crosshair NA… good thing we still have EU.

Arguably the most important aspect of a player’s loadout is not a weapon, but what they use to aim them. That can only mean one thing in a game where you need a sniper to ADS.

Your crosshair should be optimized for fragging out if your gunning for the top. Finding the right settings can be about as easy as a solo B retake on Nuke.

But if you persist you’ll be happy you did. If some tips are what you need then look no further and read on to learn how these pros round out their weaknesses by tweaking their crosshair.

10. byali

Classic static style

Paweł “byali” Bieliński is a Polish player for the CSGO pro team Virtus Pro. They currently employ him as an entry frag. He loves running the AK-47 at the front of his team.

  • Yellow stands out particularly well against other colors to your brain
  • Medium length thin lines for open view
  • Bigger gap size optimized for medium range combat

Try this crosshair out by copy and pasting the code into your console:

cl_crosshair_drawoutline "0.000000"; cl_crosshair_dynamic_maxdist_splitratio "0.35"; cl_crosshair_dynamic_splitalpha_innermod "1"; cl_crosshair_dynamic_splitalpha_outermod "0.5"; cl_crosshair_dynamic_splitdist "7"; cl_crosshair_outlinethickness "1.000000"; cl_crosshair_sniper_show_normal_inaccuracy "0"; cl_crosshair_sniper_width "1"; cl_crosshair_t "0.000000"; cl_crosshairalpha "200.000000"; cl_crosshaircolor "2.000000"; cl_crosshaircolor_b "50.000000"; cl_crosshaircolor_g "250.000000"; cl_crosshaircolor_r "50.000000"; cl_crosshairdot "0.000000"; cl_crosshairgap "-1.000000"; cl_crosshairgap_useweaponvalue "0"; cl_crosshairscale "0"; cl_crosshairsize "3.000000"; cl_crosshairstyle "4.000000"; cl_crosshairthickness "0.000000"; cl_crosshairusealpha "1"; cl_fixedcrosshairgap "3"

9. nitr0

Default static style

All those performances earned him a cozy $423,482 in estimated winnings. How his crosshair separates him from the rest:

  • Default style changes color when locked on to enemy for visual cue that a shot is available(useful for stretched)
  • Neutral white color for minimal false positives on enemies spotted
  • Small overall size gives a slight edge to those up close fights
