The first thing that you need to learn in Counter Strike – Global Offensive is how to move. Moving around correctly is 10 times more important than the aiming ability and the reaction time. All weapons have movement penalties, meaning that if you move while discharging your weapon, your bullets may ricochet out to different places. You need to cheat the game and need to give the impression like you are stationary while firing.
CS:GO aiming improvement tactics
This is a shooting tactic that is employed by the professional CS:GO players to dominate the other players. Some pro players inadvertently use this tactic as a natural reflex because their play styles are completely based on this action. If we need to explain this action in a simple manner, it is kind of cancelling out the momentum by pressing the opposite directional button to the direction you are heading to thus becoming stationary. For example, when you are moving to a direction by pressing the A button, your character will come to a dead stop if you press D button in a sudden manner. However, if you don’t employ this tactic when you are pressing to A button, your character will continue moving to the direction A a bit longer even if you release the button. You can practice this tactic by shooting at a wall in an empty server. With this Counter Strike Hit Improvement tactic, rest assured you will take down more enemies than before.
Another aiming improvement tactic in CS : GO is changing your crosshair settings. In order to change the CS:GO crosshair settings, go to Game Settings submenu from the Options Menu and turn the Crosshairs option to classic. Then open up the console screen and edit those commands;
- cl_crosshairthickness 1.1
- cl_crosshaircolor 2
- cl_crosshairsize 2.5
- cl_crosshairdot 0
- cl_crosshairalpha 235
Therefore, the Counter Strike Crosshair will be smaller, yellow and dotless. The best Counter Strike players use these settings.
CS:GO Movement Tactics
Never, ever come out from the corners running. If you just pop up from a corner running, your enemy will probably spot you first and will likely kill you. When checking out a corner, use the dead stop tactic and slow down.
In Counter Strike Global Offensive maps, each corridor has sheltered zones. By using those zones and being open from a single side only, you increase your chances of survival. You can watch the video below in order to grasp this method better.
If you are a newcomer, we suggest you to forget the prone key for a while. New players tend to prone in panic moments and fail to aim properly ultimately becoming easy prey. That is why listen to us if you have just started playing CS:GO; proning in order to avoid death is not a good tactic at all.
