Tips for Customizing Your CSGO Crosshair
CSGO is about catching your enemies in your crosshairs. With the game’s default crosshair, it’s hard to do that, and sometimes, you’re even the one found in it! Thankfully, you don’t have to stick with what Valve has given you. Think of it as customizing your crosshair as though it were a gun getting modified with CSGO Skins. The only difference is that it’s not done in-game. It’s not difficult, but it can confuse if you don’t know what to do. Now, we are going to give you some tips on how to come up on your CSGO Crosshair.
Hitting with An Internet Tool
First, go to CS:GO Crosshair Generator. You’ll see what appears like a screenshot of the Dust map on the left. On the right, there’s a panel where you can adjust the properties of the crosshair. There are Thickness and Size, which are self-explanatory. There’s also the Gap that dictates how far apart the lines are from one another. As for style, there are three:
- Default: cannot be customized
- Classic: the regular look of the crosshair in-game
- Dynamic: simulates how a crosshair moves when pointed at a target
You can also change the color. Just choose from preset colors (Green, Yellow, Blue, and Cyan), or from a gradient of hues. If the Default crosshair isn’t your thing, then you can go with these options:
- Dot: a small dot in the middle of your screen
- Cross: a solid cross
- 6: how a crosshair looks in Counter-Strike 1.6.
You can add a dot at the center of the crosshair so that you can better visualize where you would hit. Once you’ve got the combination that you wanted, copy the console code, paste it in the console, and hit enter. Then voila! Your crosshair is now exactly how you designed it.
Like The Pros
On the other hand, if you think that this is too much work, instead, you can copy the crosshairs used by CSGO pro players. There’s a site called Professional Crosshairs for CS:GO. What you’ll find is a list of links for the console codes of elite CSGO players. It’s not a guarantee that you’ll play just as good as the ones using these crosshairs, but hey, they use it for a reason, so it must help to step up your game.
A Map Full of Options
However, if both making a crosshair emulating what the CS:GO pros do aren’t for you, then you should give crashz’ Crosshair Generator a try. To access this, go to CSGO, click on Find a Game, and select the Workshop tab. Then, you’ll be prompted to a list of maps. From there, pick the Crosshair generator map and click on the green “Start local server.”
Afterward, you’ll get taken to a map with a panel that features all sorts of options for your crosshair. Upon clicking on a particular crosshair trait, you’ll see a submenu that will allow you to edit that particular property.
After tinkering with your crosshair, you can choose to test the crosshair by going through the door that says “Test.” There’s a screen that will reflect the changes you’ve made. Once you’re satisfied, just exit the map and all the changes to your crosshair will get applied.
With these steps, gone could be the days of you being unable to hit targets with your crosshair. Hopefully, you’ll be able to come up with the best crosshair so that you can dominate.
