S1mple crosshair settings

It’s important to note that crosshair settings are mostly about preference. Professional CS:GO players are even known to switch between crosshairs frequently as their preferences change every day. Having a smaller crosshair makes it easier for some to find headshots, while larger crosshairs make it easier for some to line up utility.

S1mple is known to sport a small crosshair and generally seems to stick to those settings for the most part. Below are his most recent spotted crosshair settings to copy and paste into your console.

  • cl_crosshairalpha "200"; cl_crosshaircolor "1"; cl_crosshaircolor_b "50"; cl_crosshaircolor_r "50"; cl_crosshaircolor_g "250"; cl_crosshairdot "1"; cl_crosshair_t "0"; cl_crosshairgap "-2"; cl_crosshairsize "1"; cl_crosshairstyle "4"; cl_crosshairusealpha "1"; cl_crosshairthickness "0.5"; cl_fixedcrosshairgap "-2"; cl_crosshair_outlinethickness "0"; cl_crosshair_drawoutline "0";

S1mple mouse settings

S1mple famously uses a high sensitivity to help with his movement, crosshair-placement, and overall ability to react quickly. Here are his mouse settings:

  • DPI: 400
  • Sensitivity: 3.09
  • eDPI: 1236
  • Raw Input: On
  • Hz: 1000

S1mple resolution and aspect ratio

Should you play stretched or black bars? It’s another part that’s highly debatable and more down to preference than anything else. S1mple’s resolution and aspect ratio is certainly an acquired taste with a 4:3 aspect ratio and a stretched scaling mode. Here are his monitor settings:

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