Aim is one of the most important factors in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) and also one of the most customizable. You can customize the size, color, transparency, thickness and everything needed to make it exactly the way you want it, just use the Crosshair Generator tool. Check out how to do it below!

How to use Crosshair Generator in 3 steps

  1. Go to the Crosshair Generator website. On the right of the screen, you will find several parameters to customize your crosshair (as in the image above). As you modify them, you can see the results immediately, even in different game scenarios.
  2. After finding your perfect crosshair, below the parameters you will find a large code (as in the image above). It will be something like: "cl_crosshairalpha "200";cl_crosshaircolor "5";cl_crosshaircolor_b "50";cl_crosshaircolor_r "50";cl_crosshaircolor_g "250";cl_crosshairdot "0";cl_crosshairgap "0";cl_crosshairsize "5";cl_crosshairstyle "4" ;cl_crosshairusealpha "1";cl_crosshairthickness "0.5";cl_fixedcrosshairgap "0";cl_crosshair_outlinethickness "3";cl_crosshair_drawoutline "1". Copie-o (Ctrl+C).
  3. Finally, enter CS:GO and cole (Ctrl+V) the code on the game console, accessed through the " ' " key (apostrophe). Ready, your aim will be customized!

Attention: in case you don't have access to the console, go to the menu Game Settings>Game and enable it, as in the image below:



What does each parameter mean?

  • cl_crosshairalpha (0-255): transparency
  • cl_crosshaircolor (1-5): cores
  • cl_crosshaircolor_b (0-255): blue color level
  • cl_crosshaircolor_r (0-255): magenta color level
  • cl_crosshaircolor_g (0-255): green color level
  • cl_crosshairdot (0-1): point inside crosshair
  • cl_crosshairgap (-100,100): spread/join crosshairs
  • cl_crosshairsize (0-100): crosshair size
  • cl_crosshairstyle (1-4): dynamic crosshair
  • cl_crosshairusealpha (0-1): disable/enable transparency
  • cl_crosshairthickness (0-100): crosshair thickness
  • cl_fixedcrosshairgap (0-100): spread/join fixed lines
  • cl_crosshair_outlinethickness (0-3): outer line thickness
  • cl_crosshair_drawoutline (0-1): disable/enable outside line
