How to Set Dot Crosshair in CS:GO 2021

CS:GO dot crosshair seems to be the latest trend that players are trying out in order to improve their aim and get better at the game. A ‘Dot Crosshair’ is a type of aim settings used by players which turns a regular crosshair into a dot and can be achieved by simply executing a set of CS:GO console commands. The advantage of using a dot crosshair is that it increases accuracy, helping players land headshots efficiently and giving them an edge in long-range fights. However, the trade-off is that players might find it harder to spray with the weapon and also transfer fire onto other players.

We will breakdown the necessary settings below and explain in detail how to set a dot as your primary aim. Players can also add the console commands to their config files so that the next time they launch CS:GO a dot crosshair will be awaiting them in-game.

CS:GO Dot Crosshair 2021 – Console Commands

Retired Belgian CS:GO player Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom made the dot crosshair famous after he started using it in Valorant, from where it has now jumped over to CS:GO as well. So all the players who are thinking of trying out this dot aim, here are some crosshair related console commands that you need to know.


There are five different types of crosshairs available in CS:GO and players can select a value between 0 – 4 to select anyone of them. The most preferred crosshair styles are 2, 3, 4. The remaining values generate default crosshairs which are quite terrible and cannot be modified further.


There are only two possible options with this setting which basically determines if a player wants a centre dot or not. Inserting the value 0 will disable the dot while the value 1 will enable it.


This particular setting determines the colour of the crosshair and players can select a value between 0 – 5 to select anyone of them. The six colour options available are, 0 = red, 1 = green, 2 = yellow, 3 = blue, 4 = cyan, 5 = custom.

The custom colour value can be set through these three console commands; cl_crosshair_r, cl_crosshair_b, cl_crosshair_g. Players can select a value between 0 – 255 for each of these three commands to create a custom crosshair colour. These three settings represent red, blue, and green colour strengths, combining them results in a new colour.
