Your crosshair in any FPS (first-person shooter) game is similar to your fingerprint; it is usually unique and customized to suit your visual preferences, such as colour, width, style and more.
There are a few different ways that you can change your crosshair settings, but we will focus on the two easiest and quickest methods, as configuring settings can often be a tedious task.
These two methods are ideal if you want to change your crosshair quickly and test it out in your matchmade or casual games. But do not worry, as you can always come back and change your settings again if your selections do not feel right for you.
Method 1 (Game Settings)
- Click the settings icon on the left-hand side of the screen once you have loaded into CS:GO.
- Navigate to the “crosshair” tab and click on it to view all crosshair adjustments and settings.
- Scroll down until you see the crosshair options that are responsible for the crosshair’s color and style.
Method 2 (Change crosshair in console)
- Begin by checking if the developer console is turned on in the game settings.
- Click the button (usually ~ button) to open the console. Then enter the settings you want to change.
- Check the website page CSGO pro crosshair list to copy & paste readily made settings with one simple click.
And there you have it! As you can see, changing your crosshair settings is an easy task. Some people prefer to change their settings regularly in order to test out different colours and styles.
On the other hand, players sometimes will opt to copy the crosshair settings of pros as there is a perceived notion that some colours/styles are easier on the eyes, which therefore translates to smoother hand-eye coordination, thus better gameplay.
The truth is that there is no correct way to set up your crosshair settings and as we mentioned before, the style and colour crosshairs is completely subjective.
Be sure to test out different styles to see which settings suit you the best!
