You've probably been wondering how pro CS:GO players set up their settings. And the answer is pretty S1mple. These pros have found the right settings for them. And I want you to focus on the last two words. You cannot just copy a random pro's settings and expect to play like them. Some things might work better for you compared to them. Feel free to play around with your settings, but don't change them too often or drastically.

Now that we've covered the most crucial thing let's take a look at some pro settings CSGO. Specifically from S1mple.

Let's talk about resolution. S1mple likes to use a 4:3 aspect ratio with a resolution of 1280 x 960 because this makes the player models bigger, which means that they become easier to hit. There also are some pros that like to use black bars because they don't have to focus on the whole screen.

About the crosshair, I'm going to say that it doesn't matter. Just choose one that you like the best.

And not to mention that not only S1mple but other pros change their crosshairs quite frequently.

What about DPI? S1mple himself uses 400 DPI. That's because, during the CS 1.6 era, most “mouses” had only 400 DPI, and that's why many pros have decided to stick with it. There are debates about this but remember that you need to find the most comfortable using it.

Now that we know about S1mple's DPI let's look at his mouse sensitivity. He likes to use the sensitivity of 3.09. That's probably one of the highest sensitivities when it comes to usage by pro players. However, there is a valid reason behind that. S1mple plays as an AWPer, and that means that he needs to make more significant movements compared to a rifler. Again, find what works best for you. But the question is, how can you find the best sensitivity?

How to determine whether your sensitivity is right for you? If you can comfortably do a 180-degree movement while also being able to keep your crosshair on a small moving target. Find the sweet spot between the two, and you are good to go.

These are pretty much all the necessary settings that you need to modify to ensure that you play the best you possibly can.

And you probably already know what the lesson from today's article is, so I'm not going to say it.
