CS:GO Best Settings & Options Guide


Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (or CS:GO, as most people call it) is one of the most popular games on the planet. The easy to understand concept coupled with an insanely high skill ceiling and a large amount of avenues to better yourself keeps drawing people in, both as players and spectators.

Something that’s pretty unique to the game is just how many options there are to tweak the game to your own liking. Contrary to most other games you’ll see a ton of different resolutions being used by the pros, for example. With so many options to tweak it’s understandable that some people can’t really see the forest for the trees, and that’s where we come in.

This guide gathers average values and interesting outliers from our CS:GO Pro Settings and Gear list to give you a starting point to find the best settings for CS:GO. We’ve analyzed the sensitivity, DPI & eDPI, resolution, monitor refresh rates (in Hz) and much more and distilled all of that into this guide for you to use. In the second part of this guide we’ll give you the best ingame settings to get the most FPS out of your PC.
