As a gamer, I know that it can be hard to find the best CSGO crosshair. I’ve tried so many different crosshairs and looked up what the pro players say about this subject. In this article, I’m gonna help you with this in-depth guide to finding the crosshair that suits YOU. As I was researching,
I realized there are so many options out there, and it is very personalized.
My goal with this article is that you will be able to customize your own crosshair and personalize it as much as possible for your needs. Whether it is the looks of it or getting a better movement or aim, you will find everything you need right here.
In the video we show you how to copy paste in the commands and how to customize your own crosshair by looking at this video:
Top 6 CSGO Crosshairs [among Professional Players]
ZywOo - Top player 2020
This phenomenal awp player showed up from nowhere and took the CSGO scene by storm. ZywOo is known to be the top ranked player of 2020 and are the closest challanger to s1mple as the best awper.
It's hard to decide wether he's the best awper or not since he doesn't have the experience seen by other awpers yet.
The crosshair used by ZywOo is unusual and might be hard to use for some players; it's an incredibly small crosshair compared to the other players and can seem cluttery. Give it a try and see if it suits you.

Olofmeister - Rifler [ Best Crosshair Overall ]
This crosshair is even smaller than ZywOo's so Olofmeister's crosshair is also for the more experienced players.
It's great for spray and also very thin, so it doesn't come in the way of seeing small details that could be necessary throughout your game.
Olofmeister's one of the best riflers in the world. If you're a rifler, I genuinely recommend you try this crosshair out.

Make sure that everything's fits in the console when copy pasting.
Stewie2k uses a thicker and bigger crosshair than the above. Which can be easier to control if you're not a Global player
You will see that most of the pro players use very similar ones with some customization.
It's still quite a small crosshair but big enough to give an advantage on your spray situations
Try it out and see if it’s the right customization for you.

(copy half of it at a time cause it only fits that much into the console).
Once again, you see a similar one to the previous mentioned earlier.
This one is about Stewie’s size but has a smaller gap.
The more significant difference between this crosshair is that it’s light blue.
|cl_crosshairalpha 200; |
cl_crosshairusealpha 1; cl_crosshairthickness 1; cl_crosshair_drawoutline 1; cl_crosshair_outlinethickness 1; cl_crosshair_sniper_width 1;
(You may need to copy it part by part to make it fit the console)
S1mple is considered one of the best, if not the best CSGO player we've seen so far. Which is why I'd definitely call this a classic pro crosshair to be tried out in CSGO. S1mples crosshair is really one of the interesting ones out there. It's an incredibly tiny green crosshair with a dot in the middle. It also moves with your recoil. Try this crosshair out and play 10k hours+, and you might just become as good as s1mple one day.

viewmodel_recoil 0; cl_righthand 1;
(copy it two times, otherwise it will not fit in the console)
This one is, for some reason, seen more amongst NA players than EU ones. It’s basically a customized default crosshair, made as minimal as possible, and made static.
It’s neat, and if it works for such a beast as Tarik, it’s good enough for you too.

Things to consider
Choosing the style of your crosshair is not all about the looks or just using whatever any pro player is using cause it might not serve what you need in your game-play. First of all, you need to look at what you want and need to improve to take your gaming to the next level. For example, if it’s the movement, you’re looking to improve, you would probably want a classic type of style for your crosshair. (I will talk more of why classic styles help your movement down below). If you want to get more accurate with your aim, use a dot until you’re comfortable enough to remove it. Maybe it’s the spray that you want to improve so. Therefore, a larger crosshair is something to consider.
However, what I’m trying to say here is that there are many ways to customize it for your specific needs if you just know how to do it. There's a lot of good crosshairs out there, but we want to find the best CSGO crosshair for you.
Best CSGO Crosshair for Movement
Not a lot of people think about using your crosshair to get a better movement, or a better aim by improving your movement for that matter.
Default Classic crosshair is great for movement. It shows when you’re ready to shoot a bullet again and still have 100% control of the accuracy, it also comes with a dot, which is excellent for ‘’tapping’’. The crosshair also moves with your bullets, which makes you connect better with your bullets. I truly recommend everyone to use this crosshair if you can improve your movement since it is one of the most essential skill sets to take your gaming to the next level.
Type this in the console: mp_crosshairstyle 3
Try the Classic crosshair, which comes without a dot, and doesn’t move while shooting if you’re a high-end player or would like to focus on your spray more.
Best Crosshair in CSGO - Accuracy
Try using a dot as your crosshair. It gives you the real "tapping" experience, and it's a good way to always know that you're aiming at the enemy's head. This is absolutely the best crosshair in CSGO to perfect your tapping and accuracy.
Type this in your console for a Dot crosshair:
cl_crosshairthickness to the size of the dot
This is one of those crosshairs that could be good to use for a few weeks and then shift to the standard Classic static style and get rid of the dot.
Now that you’ve got to know the basics of choosing a crosshair, it might be useful to have a look at what the pro players are using.

You can adjust the size through this command in your console: cl_crosshairsize and cl_crosshairthickness. Use cl_crosshairdot "1" if you simply just want a dot.
