The hottest new prospect in all of Counter-Strike is the young star donk. After his monster debut performance, naturally, you might want to copy donk’s settings in CS2 to see if his mouse settings, resolution or ViewModel are really the difference makers.

When 17-year-old donk made his big event debut at IEM Katowice 2024, there was already a buzz of hype around his name from smaller tournaments and online matches. But, no one could have predicted the frankly outrageous performance he pulled off.

In fact, he set a new record for the highest rating at IEM Katowice in the event’s history, while going on to win the event with Team Spirit, essentially hard carrying his team every single map.

So, while you almost certainly won’t be as good as donk, you might as well try out some of his CS2 settings for yourself.

donk’s monitor and resolution

When playing at home, donk plays on a ZOWIE XL2546K monitor, which has a 240Hz refresh rate.

Like most pros, donk plays on a stretched res. While this isn’t for everyone, it has the benefit of making player models appear wider. They’ll also move faster across your screen though, and reduce your field of view significantly.

Viewmodel

In CS2, the viewmodel settings will determine the position and movement of your hands, knife, and weapons on the screen.

Again, the easiest way to copy donk’s viewmodel is by copying the following commands into the console.

viewmodel_fov 68; viewmodel_offset_x 2.5; viewmodel_offset_y 0; viewmodel_offset_z -1.5; viewmodel_presetpos 3;
