Selecting the best crosshair in Counter-Strike 2 can significantly enhance your gameplay, and having a pro player’s CS2 crosshair code is a simple yet effective strategy. Here are the best crosshair codes used by elite players around the globe in CS2.

A suitable crosshair in Counter-Strike 2 boosts your confidence in landing headshots, executing precise grenade throws, and mastering spray control.

By default, CS2 will give you a dynamic green crosshair. However, this is not very popular among seasoned players, as it can be distracting. Instead, the more common choice is a less distracting, static crosshair.

To save time, these are the best CS2 crosshairs pro players use in the game, which you can try by using crosshair codes. You can use these codes in Counter-Strike 2, the same as you did in CS:GO.

He is using a dot crosshair now in CS2, on a 4:3 resolution, with cyan coloring. While s1mple is mainly an AWPer, he has been using the rifles even more in Counter-Strike 2, given the AWP’s place in the current meta being hit.

ZywOo crosshair code

This will instantly change your crosshair to the exact settings used by one of these pro players, depending on which code you use.

If you want to keep a record of your own code, simply click ‘copy my code’ before importing a new one, and then save this somewhere, in a note on your PC. That way, you can always revert to your previous crosshair easily.

Remember, changing aspect ratio and resolution will also change how the crosshair appears. Many pro players use 4:3 stretched, so their crosshair will look different if you play on a different res. If you are on 16:9, these crosshairs may appear differently than they do for the pro.
