Best CS2 crosshair codes used by pros (2024): s1mple, ZywOo, NiKo, donk, more
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.
There are countless variations for your crosshair, and you could spend hours tweaking it to make it perfect. 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.
Best CS2 crosshair codes used by pro players
We’ve picked out some of the world’s greatest players, including both AWPers and riflers, and listed the crosshair codes they use in CS2. Then, check the table below to see even more crosshairs you can try from pros.
Pro players do often change their crosshairs regularly, but we’ll keep this list as updated as possible with new crosshairs as they change. Also, remember that crosshairs will look bigger or smaller depending on what res you play on (16:9/16:10/4:3).
s1mple crosshair code
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.
You can see s1mple’s complete Counter-Strike settings here.
ZywOo crosshair code
ZywOo, now a major winner in CS:GO, is another player who is almost as good with an AK as the best riflers in the world, while being an AWP user primarily. He uses a small green crosshair as shown, but is regularly playing around with his crosshair like others, so this might change up soon in CS2.
You can see ZywOo’s complete CS:GO settings here.
NiKo crosshair code
Few would argue that Nikola ‘NiKo‘ Kovač is the best rifler in the world. If you aspire to be as good as the G2 star, you’re probably out of luck, but at least you can emulate his crosshair with the code provided.
Check out NiKo’s full settings here.
donk crosshair code
A new entry on the list of best players in the world, 17-year-old phenom donk lit up the CS world with his monster performance at IEM Katowice 2024.
Unsurprisingly, his crosshair will now be copied by thousands of players, hoping it might let them entry frag like him. Obviously, it won’t, but it can’t hurt to try.
You can see donk’s full CS2 settings here.
m0NESY crosshair code
Like many players, the young prodigy m0NESY uses a cyan-colored crosshair. Although he’s only been in the pro scene for a couple of years, G2’s AWPer has more than proved himself at the highest level and is one of the most exciting players in the world.
However, m0NESY frequently changes his crosshair, so you may see him trying out something else from time to time.
You can find m0NESY’s settings in full here.
dev1ce crosshair code
Despite some time away from professional play, Astralis legend Nicolai ‘dev1ce‘ Reedtz is back like he never left, and his individual performance is as strong as ever. He uses a yellowish crosshair to tap heads.
Twistzz crosshair code
Arguably the greatest North American player of all time in CS:GO, Twistzz, Team Liquid’s Canadian rifler, is another headshot machine, and he does it all with this simple cyan crosshair.
ropz crosshair code
Twistzz’s teammate, Robin ‘ropz‘ Kool, is often lauded as one of the players with the greatest mechanical skill in CS, even leading to pros accusing him of cheating before he went pro. Of course, it’s actually just his crisp aim, which he achieves with this green crosshair.
He’s already won a tournament in CS2 as well, and is one of the players who has been playing the most.
sh1ro crosshair code
Dmitriy ‘sh1ro’ Sokolov, now with Team Spirit, is a superstar in his own right, even if he doesn’t get the shine of his contemporaries like s1mple and ZywOo. His crosshair is somewhat unique among pros, with a faded yellow color.
Ax1Le crosshair code
Cloud9’s star rifler Sergey ‘Ax1Le’ Rykhtorov is quickly making a name for himself as a true threat to the crown of NiKo in this role. If his crosshair is more to your style, then give it a shot using the code above.
YEKINDAR crosshair code
Team Liquid’s Mareks ‘YEKINDAR’ Gaļinskis is tipped as the best entry-fragger role player in the world, with his signature aggression on the T side. He’s more than happy to push any bombsite, confident his expert crosshair placement will help him clear the CT’s power positions. He does so with this neat and tidy green crosshair.
blameF crosshair code
Even in a struggling Astralis team, Benjamin ‘blameF’ Bremer is a consistent performer. Although sometimes criticized for his passive playstyle by fans, there is no denying that a one-on-one duel with blameF is a risk for even the best in the world. He uses a small, dot-like crosshair to land his shots.
ELiGE crosshair code
Another of NA’s finest, Jonathan ‘EliGE‘ Jablonowski’s standout trait is often his spray control. While you might think your crosshair is not all that important in this regard, the difference between a dynamic and static crosshair will determine whether it expands or not when firing. ELiGE, like most pros, prefers a static one.
stavn crosshair code
The former Heroic star has now joined Astralis for CS2, and although still a young player, stavn has shown moments of pure brilliance on the biggest stage and is a clutch expert, too. He uses a very small, light blue crosshair.
KSCERATO crosshair code
The best Brazilian player in the world, Kaike ‘KSCERATO’ Cerato, is among the very best riflers globally, and although his FURIA team has struggled to win international events, few would lay much of the blame at his feet. Always a top performer, you can emulate his crosshair with the code above.
More CS2 pro crosshair codes

How to use crosshair codes in CS2
You import crosshair codes in CS2 the same way as CS:GO, by pasting the code in the settings menu. To do this, follow these steps:
- Open the settings menu in CS2 by clicking the cog symbol
- Navigate to ‘Game’ and then ‘Crosshair’
- On the crosshair preview image, click ‘Share and Import’
- Paste the code into the pop-up and click ‘Import’
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.
