Never played it but do you mean like the Q3 Railgun?

This builds muscle memory because you're ensuring you're landing on the target and your brain is remember the distance you moved to get to that target - after doing that for so long you'll be able to get to those targets QUICKER and still being ACCURATE.. I use to struggle with aiming until I really began practicing it.. not just by playing but actually practicing - it's how I got good at awping, I stopped going for quick flicks and all that crap and just went into FFA DM and made sure the crosshair was on target before firing always - also always FOCUS on your crosshair.. don't go into 'auto pilot' mode where you're just gaming.. focus on where the crosshair is while also making sure it's on target
Do this while not changing sensitivities/mouse/mousepad and you will see BIG improvements in 1-2 months.. of course there's more to the games than aiming but once you have aiming down you can work on mechanics like positioning/movement and so fourth
Listen to this man.
Also, once you get that down, find yourself a practice regime that puts you "in the zone". Before every CSGO match back when I still played competitive, I would play UT3 in a circular map with instagib vs godlike bots. Enough bots beyond a threshold that I could not handle without basically snapping into what I can only describe "the zone" aka when for some reason you just start landing EVERY DAMN SHOT and you're just obscenely focused.
Then I did not take a break, but instead I drank a cup of coffee I had on the ready, breathed in and out and went into the CSGO match.
Noone understood this regime back when I played BF or CS, but it worked for me.
Though I'd say you have to find your own regime for this, it's a bit different for everyone.
Funny, how that now after all these years I'm slowly losing my interest in competitive gaming, I'm finally getting the mouse that I've always wanted :x
Back when I still played CSGO I would also play TDM and single tap with the AK and only go for headshots. But in matches I sprayed like hell. Yet that practice helped make sure my first shot had a lot more potential of being a headshot.
Like ncck said, practice and consistency. I've switched tons of mice, but I have never switched my sensitivity in years.Edited by CorruptBE - 8/23/16 at 3:56pm
