Best Basic Crosshairs
Standard Crosshair: CSGO-7V8qr-zr9BJ-EdHJ7-H4Fq7-EyzQN
This super simple crosshair is just a cross with points going in all four directions. You can change the length and thickness of the cross in the crosshair settings menu in order to customize it to your personal preferences.
Dot Crosshair: CSGO-ZNmv8-PA2FR-N6zGc-PdqQs-54ksF
This crosshair is nothing more than a small dot in the center of your screen, making it perfect for one taps and aim gods. It may take some time to master the use of this crosshair, but it is definitely worth it in the long run.
4 Dot Crosshair: CSGO-RRERM-uNB8J-viEVd-7DV95-NVBtG
This next crosshair is the exact opposite of the Dot crosshair, and instead features four dots surrounding the place where the one dot from the last crosshair would be. With this design, you can fit the heads of your enemies into the window of space between the four dots to guarantee a perfect shot.
You are also able to change the color of any of these crosshairs using the three-color sliders. Aqua tends to be the best color in terms of contrast with maps, but yellow and green are also great options as well.
