Top 10 CSGO Best Crosshairs (Used By The Best Players In The World)

CSGO Best Crosshair
Get an edge with the best csgo crosshairs.

In order to get anywhere in CSGO you need to start with the fundamentals and arguably one of the most overlooked and important fundamentals of the game is your crosshair. It is what lets you know where you are aiming and where that bullet will land once you fire. 

Most people never get too in depth with crosshair customization but the impact it can have on your game is undeniable. You want a crosshair that is easily visible but not distracting when you are in those clutch situations.

No one can tell you what the best crosshair is because it differs for each person and their style. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some simple tricks to making a good crosshair. 

Rather than hear it from a silver like me let's take a look at the crosshairs of the best players in the world to see what the masters play with.


10) Robin "ropz" Kool

We start our list with a CSGO prodigy, ropz. When he made his entrance into CSGO at the age of 16 professionals around the world were skeptical of him (looking at you JW). 

They called him a hacker and said he would never make it professionally. Since then he has helped, let’s be honest carried, his team Mousesports to multiple finals in top tournaments. 

These include placing 1st at the ESL Pro League Season 10, CSGO Asia Championships 2019, and ESL One New York 2018 just to name a few. 

  • Easily visible on all surfaces
  • Small and not distracting
  • Gap in center is small but does allow vision through crosshair at range

9) Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken

The first Team Liquid player to make the list Twistzz is known for his raw aiming ability. In 2019 he saw his stock rise dramatically as he took his history of inconsistency and wiped it clean. 

Now when pro’s see him coming at them in the server they hide, and with good reason. Team Liquid was particularly dominate in 2019 due the insane form that Twisstz had throughout the year.  

Twisstz helped his team place 1st  in IEM Chicago 2019, Blast Pro Series Los Angeles 2019, ESL One Cologne 2049, ESL Pro League Season 9, and DreamHack Masters Dallas 2019. 

  • Width of the lines make it easier to find crosshair in chaotic situations
  • Center is open so that you can easily click heads at range 
  • Color will never be obscured by game textures

8) Vincent "Brehze” Cayonte

Brehze is one of those sleeper picks that many don’t count among the greats. However, he is one of the best raw fraggers in the game and consistently proves it even when playing against the elite teams. 

He is one of the players that is on every top level professionals radar as someone you don’t want to meet when pushing any site. 

And while last year started off rough for Brehze he and his teammates picked it up to become the number 2 ranked team toward the later half of 2019. 

Now I won’t say it is all due to Brehze but the fact that some of the best players in the world fear this man’s fragging ability should tell you enough.

 Since his meteoric rise in 2019 Brehze and his team placed 1st in ESL One New York 2019, and Star Series I-League Season 8 as well as some 3rd place finishes at ECS Season 8 Finals, and EPICENTER 2019. 

  • Less distracting color but still easily visible 
  • Thinner lines allow for more accuracy when placing crosshair
  • Open center makes long range fights easier to take

7) Keith "NAF" Markovic

Nasty NAF is a man of few words and even fewer facial expressions. But don’t let that lull you into a sense of security as he lets his gameplay speak for him, and boy does it.

He is the first man on this list to be rated in the Top Ten Players in the World by HLTV two years in a row. And something tells me that will continue for quite a while. Originally a CS:Source player NAF had a lot of expectations around his when he joined the CSGO scene in 2014. 

Unfortunately, for many years he didn’t live up to the hype around him. However, in the years since he has joined Team Liquid and helped build the team into what it is today, a powerhouse. 

NAF is best known for his composure and never seems to crack under pressure which has led him to some top level finishes in premiere tournaments. 

Having 3 top 3 placements in Major tournaments over the last couple years at Faceit Major 2018, ESL One Cologne 2016, MLG Columbus 2016, as well as quarterfinal placements at the last two majors. 

  • Dot in center makes sure you always know where bullet will land 
  • Length of the lines makes its easier to place your shots accurately 
  • Color stands out on all surfaces

6) Denis "electronic" Sharipov

Having to play second fiddle to arguably the best player of all time, shout out to simple, electronic doesn’t have it easy. 

But apparently, he is the only one who doesn’t feel this way as he is a beast on any server he plays. Since his addition to NAVI he has helped the team move from middling performance to rise to the number one team in the world. 

And it is in part because of electronic’s ability to frag that NAVI’s dream of being the best came to fruition. If you don’t believe me just look at the results this man has helped NAVI achieve.

Since he has joined the team they have gone from barely making it out of group stage at majors to placing top 3 in all of them except the latest one. And I expect his stock to do nothing but go up from here. 

  • Smaller overall crosshair means more screen real estate
  • Center open enough that you will never miss information at long range 
  • Smaller lines allows for more accuracy at close range

5) Emil "Magisk" Reif

Astralis have cemented themselves as probably the greatest CSGO team of all time and I would argue that this couldn’t have been done without their soldier. 

Without Magisk Astralis isn’t the juggernaut they ended up becoming. This man is a soldier who does what the team needs him to do to win rounds. 

Whether that means supporting his teammates so they can make flashy plays, or holding B-site DUST 2 on his own and spraying whole teams down the man is consistent. 

It’s why he has only missed one year on HLTV’s Top 20 players in CSGO since 2016. And since Magisk joined Astralis well they have placed top 3 in basically every tournament they have entered to the point where I don’t have the space or time to list them all. 

  • Bright color stands out no matter the situation 
  • Small open center means more accuracy at longer ranges 
  • Longer vertical and horizontal lines allow easier time to flick

4) Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski

With the exact same first name as me you know this man has to be great, right? Ok, well maybe not every Jonathan is an aim god but at least there is one out there who is.

During this past year the meta in counter strike was SG and AUG over AK and M4, and no one showed the prowess of the new meta better than Elige.

Team Liquid had an incredible run and in no short part it was due to Elige’s ability to frag.  Not only are his reflexes and aim some of the fastest in the game but Elige also has some ridiculous game sense (probably all those years he spent playing StarCraft 2). 

  • Outlines allow the crosshair to be made into any color and still stand out
  • Wide center means you won't block out vision allowing for more info at greater ranges
  • Larger overall crosshair gives the user more flexibility in different situations

3) Nicolai "device" Reedtz

If you are looking for the best awper in the world look no more (sorry KennyS I still love you). 

Device is hands down the premiere awper of the CSGO scene. However, what makes him truly terrifying is the fact that he is also one of the best riflers in the world, hell just one of the best to grace the game in general. 

To give you an idea of just how good he is HLTV has put him in the Top Five Players in CSGO since 2015. A feat no other player has been able to do. 

Not to mention the fact that he is also an integral part of Astralis one of the greatest teams to play the game if not the best. I could say more but I think that fact that he is a beast is fairly obvious. 

  • Tight crosshair allows easier adjustments to angles being held 
  • Open center means you never miss information
  • Smaller size allows more accuracy 


cl_crosshairalpha 255; cl_crosshaircolor 1; cl_crosshairdot 0; cl_crosshairgap -2; cl_crosshairsize 2; cl_crosshairstyle 4; cl_crosshairusealpha 1; cl_crosshairthickness 1; cl_crosshair_drawoutline 0;


2) Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev

If you know anything about CSGO you have probably heard of simple before and for good reason. The man is considered by most to be the GOAT of CSGO. He is responsible for some of the most insane plays the game has seen in the past years and of course has recently led his team, Natus Vincere, to the top of the CSGO world.

No matter what weapon simple has in his hands he is a threat, but if he has a rifle or sniper in his hands it's time to abandon ship. 

Since his climb to the top in 2016 he has not left the Top Ten CSGO players HLTV rankings and even took the number one spot in 2018.

Not much else has to be said because it’s simple, he is a monster. 

  • Know exactly where your bullet will land 
  • Gives the most available screen real estate in the game 
  • Color will stand out in all situation and textures

1) Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut

2019 saw the rise of a prodigy among prodigies, a man who was able to remove simple from the top slot in CSGO to become the king of the game. Seemingly rising out of nowhere in the past couple years Zywoo has taken the CS world by storm. 

When Team Vitality signed him to their roster, they were a team that no one saw going anywhere, however, within just a couple months he carried their team up to the top level even being ranked among the top 2 teams in the world at some point. 

This prodigy has only just started his career so he doesn’t have the accolades rest of this list do, but when the entire CSGO professional community all agree that he is the person they fear most on the server, well who am I to disagree. 

  • Smaller size allows for more accuracy 
  • Tight grouping of lines gives a higher accuracy 
  • Open center allows target to be identified at long range
