If you want to tap to heads and win rounds in CS2, you’re going to need the best crosshair possible. Thankfully, we’ve compiled some of the best Counter-Strike 2 crosshairs, used by pro players, to help you in your quest.

While game sense, strategy, and utility use are all important factors in winning CS2 matches, if you aren’t hitting your shots, none of that will matter. At the end of the day, killing your enemies is the main goal, and if every bullet you fire misses the mark, you’ll struggle to get any victories at all.

Best CS2 crosshairs in 2024

You may have watched streams of your favorite CS2 pro player, or simply want to use the same crosshair as one of the world’s best. Either way, here are some of the crosshairs that the professionals are using, along with the codes required to copy them.

S1mple: CSGO-OCskf-qjunY-FE6T6-rsTR9-7SVvD

The GOAT’s crosshair matches his name: Simple. A small cyan dot is all he needs, using it to tap heads when he switches out his AWP for rifles.

m0NSEY: CSGO-hzrMn-jXu8b-R7VH4-hQ9aa-OnMHA

Much like s1mple, G2’s young prodigy sticks with the cyan color. Unlike the GOAT, however, m0NSEY’s crosshair is a little bigger, looking less like a dot and more like an actual crosshair you would expect to see in an FPS game.

ZywOo: CSGO-Qzpx5-BRLw8-xFPCS-hTns4-GHDhP

While s1mple and m0NSEY stick with cyan, French star ZywOo prefers a luminous green for his crosshair. This is actually the crosshair that I use, but please don’t let that put you off.

dev1ce: CSGO-yxFut-M6Vka-p4GAf-X5yZT-ey3JE

Danish star dev1ce uses an interesting crosshair. Just like s1mple’s, it’s just a dot, but the color choice makes it difficult to see in my opinion. I’m not inclined to recommend this one, but if you want to try it out, the code is above.

NiKo: CSGO-Umk5s-uxPQA-eDfJW-qWMyR-znjPK

If you like the look of m0NSEY’s, but want something a little thinner, then maybe NiKo’s is for you. It’s a little longer though, so may take up more real estate on your screen.
