Opinion: Secret to CS headshots: crosshairs

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Okay here is a little trick to getting headshots in cs

its a simple command

cl_crosshairscale 5000

that is the one of the smallest. You can bring it down as low as 99999.

you will lose it when your first starting to use it .

but dont worry.

this will also help with your no scoping

you can set to different sizes such as 3000, 4300 what ever but keeping it small will help

Secret to headshots? Place crosshair over head - Press left mouse button.. you'll be amazed. Also, translucent red is (supprisingly) most visible crosshair colour.

Secret is to ALWAYS keep crosshairs at head level, and take 2 or 3 round bursts. I personally have tried every size crosshair and I find that the green small size works best for me.

I read somewhere that someone put a Small sticker over the visible crosshair and then switched to a sniper rifle and started getting scopeless kills with the AWP... I Really hate that gun

crosshair size is a preference, you wont get better just because of your crosshair size. It depends on the individual preference.

Some people like medium because it allows you to put their whole head in the space between the xhair lines.

I personally don't like it, because it makes me feel like my sensitivity is lower, which makes me overshoot my target..

But I do agree, having a smaller xhair helps with no scoping. If you wanna be an awper, definitely use small xhair if you can.

This is OT but, for HS with an AK, either, aim for the head with First shot/keep gun at head level, OR aim for their feet and spray Hs garunteed!

i leave mine at 3000 because its pretty small so u can get good headshots at long distances but 5000 is too small when u gotta spray or rapid fire, the line of bullets is too thin
