  • Outline: 1.9
  • Red: 0

Key Settings Breakdown

The critical settings for a dot crosshair are Center Dot and Length. Setting the Length to 0.0 will make sure that you have a true dot crosshair. Color is relative, but a green crosshair is easily distinguishable against most of the CS2 maps, which is why we suggest it. You can adjust the color to your desired taste.

Thickness is another important factor which can be defined as the thickness of the layer of the material that is to be coated. A Thickness of 0.8 gives a small dot, but if one cannot see it, then one can increase this value for better view.


And that’s it! You now have a dot crosshair in CS2. This setup is perfect for the players who want to work on their accuracy and reliability. To many, including myself, it is the most convenient way to play CS2 and get the maximum result. Happy gaming!
