In Counter Strike: Global Offensive there are no sliders to adjust your cross hair colour. Instead you have to use a series of different console commands to get what you want. I have opted to go for the colour pink as it stands out the most on all the competitive maps.

Please note that the colour settings will only apply to the “Classic” cross hair style and not the new “Default” one that came with CS:GO.


cl_crosshaircolor 5 (This tells the game you want to create a custom colour using the RGB values)

cl_crosshaircolor_r 255
cl_crosshaircolor_g 0
cl_crosshaircolor_b 255

cl_crosshairthickness 1 (This sets the thickness of the cross hair lines, default is 0.5)

cl_crosshairgap 0 (This sets the distance of the gap between the cross hair, default is 0)

cl_crosshairdot 1 (This adds a centre dot to the middle of the cross hair, default is 0)

cl_crosshairalpha 255 (This makes the cross hair totally solid with less transparency, default is 200)



You now have a nice vibrant cross hair that will actually stand out against most objects. Never again will your cross hair blend in to the background causing you to readjust your aim!

    Hey man, thanks for the tips. I’m just wondering how I can get the cross cross hair to work when I’m using a pistol. I don’t know why but whenever I select a pistol the cross hair goes from a solid cross to the normal css/ 1.6 cross hair. Do you have any suggestions that can keep my cross hair as a cross no matter what gun I have in my hand please.

    Thanks in advance!

    Why do you say I must use “cl_crosshaircolor 5″? In this guide i see cl_crosshaircolor 1, and many other cfg of pro players. They too use custom colors, can you help me out?

    “cl_crosshaircolor 5″ allows you to set custom RGB values for the crosshair (cl_crosshaircolor_r/g/b). Without that, you can only use the 5 in-game colors (green, red, blue, light blue, and yellow I believe). Perhaps the pro players were using one of those?

    I think you forget one of the most important, the size of crosshair, cl_crosshairsize x, with x being the value, I personally play nowadays on 5 but I played on sizes from scale to 3-7. I like your site and found some interesting smokes, thanks

    May I simply just say what a relief to uncover someone who actually understands what they’re talking about on the
    net. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    A lot more people ought to check this out and understand this side of
    your story. I can’t believe you are not more popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.
