NiKo crosshair settings;

It's worth noting that crosshair settings are largely a personal thing. Professional CS:GO players renowned for changing their crosshairs often, and sometimes even during matches.

NiKo keeps it simple with a classic small-to-medium thin crosshair, perfect for his one-tapping playstyle while still letting him spray control comfortably.

NiKo resolution and aspect ratio

Niko prefers playing with a 4:3 aspect ratio in stretched scaling mode, which might take some getting used to if you’re coming from a standard widescreen setup.

Here are his monitor settings:

  • Resolution: 1280x960
  • Aspect Ratio: 4:3
  • Scaling Mode: Stretched
  • Hz: 240

NiKo in-game settings

No surprises with the settings, as Niko looks to maximize his frames with some of the lowest possible settings. He’s currently reported to be rocking an NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3080, so even with maxed out Texture Filtering and Multisampling Anti-Aliasing, he should be getting 400-450+ FPS consistently.

  • Texture Streaming: Disabled
  • Effect Detail: Low
  • Shader Detail: Low
  • Boost Player Contrast: Disabled
