LEARN AND UNDERSTAND THE BASIC AIM MECHANICS
Aim is one of the most important aspects of CS:GO. With great aim you can defeat most of your enemies. Counter-strafing, spray control, tapping, bursting and flicking are all-important aim skills to learn. Your aim is a combination of motion between the finger, wrist, elbow and shoulder. The precision of your aim mostly comes from your fingers and wrist movement. Therefore, it’s important to find a comfortable mouse grip where you have great control.
DON’T RUN AND SHOOT UNLESS YOU HAVE THE RIGHT WEAPON
Almost every weapon becomes highly inaccurate when you run and shoot. The bullets will start to fly in every direction. Some weapons are built better for shooting while running. Especially the SMG’s and pistols are made for this. To achieve the highest accuracy you need to crouch down.
PRACTICE DEATHMATCH REGULARLY TO GET MORE AIM REPETITIONS
Deathmatch is a great way to practice your aim skills and to get a lot of aim repetitions in a short time. Unlike a competitive match where you often wait for minutes to get into a gunfight. You can choose to play with the weapon you want to improve at and choose to focus on different aim mechanics.
LEARN TO MASTER THE FIRST 10 BULLETS WHEN SPRAYING
It is hard to control a full weapon spray. Some weapons are easier to control than others, but they are all hard to master. When you want to learn to control the spray, it’s great to start by practicing the first 10 bullets because it’s the easiest part to control. When you are in a firefight and you haven’t killed the enemy after 10 bullets, it’s likely that you have been killed yourself.
STOP WORRYING ABOUT YOUR SCORE
CS:GO is highly based on teamplay and only playing for a high score won’t win you more matches. Sometimes it’s better to sacrifice yourself for the team. For example, if you have low HP you should be the first to the bomb site to get the information. Then your teammates can after and trade kill if you die.
