The French phenom Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut has been lighting up the competitive CSGO landscape for years. Take a peek at how the Vitality pro plays Counter-Strike with everything from his resolution to viewmodel as well as his DPI and sensitivity.

Though CS players spend hours finding the right settings that will accommodate their playstyles, it can be tricky to find the right configurations to suit their needs. Using pro settings can provide a great baseline to see what the best in the CSGO players in the world want out of their inputs.

That being said, using a pro’s settings can be tricky since they’ve fine-tuned it to their specific preferences and setup. Depending on how you like to play, don’t be shy to retool some configurations to suit your needs.


ZywOo’s settings for CS:GO


ZywOo’s mouse settings

ZywOo uses a custom Vaxee Outset AX Yellow mouse, with 400 DPI and 2.00 sensitivity. As Vitality’s primary AWPer, these settings give the French cannon a steady sens while offering plenty of flexibility for flick shots.

Setting Value
DPI 400
Sensitivity 2.00
Zoom Sensitivity 0.80
eDPI 800
Hz 1000
Windows Sensitivity 6
Raw Input On
Mouse acceleration Off

ZywOo’s Crosshair

ZywOo prefers a smaller crosshair with the standard no-spread option. As for colors, he can work with either blue, green, or yellow hues.

ZywOo elects to use a smaller crosshair for his CSGO configurations.

The easiest way to copy ZywOo’s exact crosshair is to copy these settings into the console. Take a look at how to open the CS:GO console.

cl_crosshair_drawoutline 0; cl_crosshair_sniper_width 1; cl_crosshairalpha 200; cl_crosshaircolor 4; cl_crosshaircolor_b 50; cl_crosshaircolor_g 250; cl_crosshaircolor_r 50; cl_crosshairdot 0; cl_crosshairgap -2; cl_crosshairsize 1; cl_crosshairstyle 4; cl_crosshairthickness 1;


ZywOo’s monitor and resolution

ZywOo uses a BENQ XL2546K monitor, which gives him 240hz for a steady stream of frames.

Like a lot of pros, ZywOo goes into CSGO matches with a stretched res. It gives targets a slightly larger presence onscreen at the cost of surrounding visibility. But top-tier players prefer it this way to give themselves a better view to land shots on their targets.

Setting Value
Resolution 1280×960
Aspect Ratio 4:3
Scaling Stretched
Refresh Rate 240hz
Display mode Fullscreen
Brightness 80%

Video settings

ZywOo keeps some in-game video settings at their most high while having options like Texture Streaming and Motion Blur disabled for smoother gameplay.

Setting Value
Global Shadow Quality High
Model & Textures High
Texture Streaming Disabled
Effect Detail High
Shader Detail High
Boost Player Contrast Enabled
Multicore Rendering Enabled
FXAA Disabled
Texture Filtering Mode Trilinear
Wait for V-Sync Disabled
Triple Monitor Mode Disabled
Use Uber Shaders Enabled
Motion Blur Disabled


Messing with your viewmodel really tailors CSGO to the individual’s preferences. As such, ZywOo has a specific viewmodel to suit his style during games.


To replicate these conditions, simply copy then paste these commands into your CSGO console.

viewmodel_fov 68; viewmodel_offset_x 2.5; viewmodel_offset_y 0; viewmodel_offset_z -1.5; viewmodel_presetpos 3; cl_viewmodel_shift_left_amt 1.5; cl_viewmodel_shift_right_amt 0.75; viewmodel_recoil 1; cl_righthand 1;

cl_bob_lower_amt 5; cl_bobamt_lat 0.4; cl_bobamt_vert 0.25; cl_bobcycle 0.98;
