Best way to improve aim
 | 
Finland Eestu 
Hello mens)) I wanted to ask you guys what's the best way to train aim in your opinion? I've always felt like I have okay aim, but nothing crazy and I'd like to elevate my aim to a new level.

i suggest you watch videos related to aiming tips and use the maps to practice it. one thing is to learn via experience and this require hundreds of hours in order to to understand what works and what doesn't. another is to try to replicate several methods to find the most suitable for you.

I don't think it's because of the lack of hours (4823 hours at the moment) and I feel like I have a pretty good idea of what works and what doesn't, although the execution might not be that good. I guess it's more about finding a balanced and efficient way to train and improve without spending 8+ hours a day grinding DM and other aim maps.

this is why I suggested you watch videos. Finding other prespectives might help you to notice what you need to practice differently. Also, sometimes your aim is NOT the problem (or not the only problem)

I do watch a lot of CS related content and demos, if that's what you are trying to say at the first part. Also I am aware that it's not only about aim, but I'm already working on those things and I've made several threads about these topics trying to find efficient ways to improve at them (which I've managed to do to some extent). I just often feel like my aim is holding me back. But still I know I have other things to work on as well, but aim is just one topic that I'd like to improve on, hence why I made this thread. :)

fuck those videos, they say the same shit all you need to do it just keep playing aim maps and ffa IMO, and obviously you are not going to have a GOD AIM in 2 days, so just keep playing that and gg for you I play a map called aim_beat, but you should download the exec config of that map to play it, it is on its description on workshop

watch pro matches and see where players are aiming and how they aim. notice how the crosshair is very rarely just aiming nowhere in particular. practice countless hours of deathmatch, no seriously do this. also work on counter-strafing in deathmatch, it will help you IMMENSELY. practice retakes as well, although retakes has many limitations of course. you'll know your aim is ready when you can reliably one deag multiple people in a row in DM, and/or when your K:D ration in warmup/DM is 2:1. anything beyond that is just a bonus, but 2:1 in DM will take you far combined with gamesense gained from watching pros and playing retakes/matches.

When I play DM I usually try to focus mostly on counter-strafing (and at least according to Leetify my counter-strafes are quite good) and headshots in particular (instead of just panic spraying every time I see an enemy). Felt an obvious improvement when I added those to my DM sessions, but nowadays I rarely see any improvement. And retakes are a bit meh in my opinion, since most people that play those usually play so random and unpredictable. I still hop on those servers from time to time. But as I said in #12, I'm trying to find an efficient and effective way to train my aim, instead of just playing DM for ridiculous amounts everyday. I am willing to put in the hours and effort, but I'd still like to find an efficient way of doing it.

yeah i understand, the issue IMO is that aim trainers don't utilize movement like CS GO's movement, so in-game you still fuck up your shots because maybe your precision or whatever has gotten a little better w/ aim trainers but they don't train the dynamic that is movement+aiming like DM does. just something to keep in mind. DM has never been beaten in terms of direct correlation to shooting in CS GO, because it is CS GO. some other things you can try in DM to improve your aim include: using pistols when everyone else is using rifles (really forces you to work on evasive movement and precise aim), using a scout when everyone else is using rifles (forces you to aim at the head because one missed shot and you're probably dead), holding angles (yes it may be lame but it's an important part of the game), prefiring (hear footsteps around a corner, so you strafe out+counter-strafe+shooting), and practice shooting while ADADADADing around a corner at far away enemies. if they stay in one spot and try to hit you, you almost always win that fight w/ the deagle. did you know you can take a gun like the m4a4, run around, see an enemy, and you can hit ADADADAD while tapping at the exact right time w/ each change of direction and almost every bullet will be accurate? if you get good at it you can literally "spray" (fast tap) the m4a4 while ADADADing and you can kill the enemy with just a few taps. you can also experiment with stuff like combining tapping and spraying, some work better than others depending on gun and distance, like 2 taps+spray, or short spray+tapping, etc, every combination you can think of, because some actually are better than pure tapping or pure spraying. with creativity there's endless shit you can practice in DM and improve your aim.

I actually never thought about it that way, but now that you mention it, it actually makes sense. But I usually still mix it with DM/aim_bots/Yprac or any other map, so I still train my strafing as well. I guess I could also try the things you mentioned at the second part. ^^ And I was aware of that, but I never managed to make it work in-game during pugs (I guess that's something specific I could try to work on then?). But is it not possible to do it with other guns, like the AK? And I usually do short spray+taps, since I noticed Twistzz does this a lot and whenever I managed to do this consistently I usually played well. I still try to practice my pure spray and taps as well, so I don't have to rely on only one way of aiming. But thanks a lot for these comments, they've been really useful. :)

yeah it's tough because there's no way to get better at aiming "quickly", as in most skills. hours of practice is necessary and there are few shortcuts, if any. also some comments here gave good explanations of crosshair placement in regards to peeking. so when you peek out, generally, you don't want to just wide peek and then adjust your aim if you see an enemy. you basically preaim every spot an enemy may be and make it multiple peeks. so from short on dust2, one jiggle peek you preaim goose, the second you preaim left side of boxes on site, then jiggle while preaiming right side of boxes, etc. if you do one wide peek you can't preaim all those spots at once and you might die unless the enemy sucks and you're faster with your aim. you probably already know this, but i figured i'd say it anyway. good luck, lol.

Very much true, but I am willing to put in the hours. I just want to find an efficient yet effective way of doing it, so I don't waste too much of my time. I noticed that quite many pointed this thing in particular. And I fairly recently started practicing this specifically, after I watched a video about how XANTARES is peeking angles. And thanks again friend, I appreciate this. ^^ Edit: I actually found the video I was talking about: youtube.com/watch?v=_QYUEr5vm00

good video, and you can see how slow and sloppy the peeks are as well as zero crosshair placement on the beginner peek, lol. should always be intentional and have it in the back of your mind about trying to peek in an advantageous way and not just forgetting about that aspect completely. also the points about trying to peek into an enemy when he's moving are also good, i've used that to great effect forever it seems without realizing it was a thing haha.
2021-05-11 23:53
It seems like your taking it while using your brain, theres no best efficient and effective ways for everyone only for yourself. Try feel the flow of it and you can see improvements. As for the technicall stuff.. If you have a brain then its ez.

I play on WaSe servers, so it switches from HS only to normal DM every so often. And when I play DM I try to specifically focus on counter-strafing, crosshair placement and headshots instead of panic spraying every time I see someone. I felt a bit improvement when I first did this, but nowadays I feel like the progress is really slow or even non-existent at times. And I'm currently level 5 at 1391 elo, usually hovering around level 5 or 6. You can check my Faceit account here, if that helps at all. faceit.com/en/players/Eestu

If you feel like you are doing it too much you can take decrease time/take a full break from playing DM or switch to playing aim maps for a while. The best advice anyone will give you to improve at CS (every aspect of the game) is to play against way better oponents. I dont know about WaSe server and the players in their server, but asuming they are shit so you could try to switch to some other servers. BrutalCS servers are filled with semi-pros and high elo players and I believe you could really improve there. Just try to find servers where people shit on you and pracc there. If you have higher elo friends , ask to play pugs with them.

I actually just started playing less, since I felt like I was playing too much and playing bad because of that. And if you check my past games on Faceit, I usually play with and against better players, so that really helps me improve. And Warmup Server's (WaSe for short) servers are full of talented players and many pros play there, including NiKo, XANTARES, ropz, smooya, huNter- etc... I also played on BrutalCS's servers in the past, but I prefer WaSe's servers in general.

Dont focus over your aim only the most important thing in CS is your consistency, this can be achieved by grinding DM continiously. As for the basics those are the foundation, your mastery of them means the better your foundation, the faster, deeper your foundation depends on your talent so does your skill ceiling, and now its all depends wether can you apply it in game as much as your skill is and that is your consistency. Conclusion : GRIND AIMBOTZ FIRST THEN DM THEN PUG'S Edit: this is my take on it im happy if i could make it even better

After reading this, I feel like I should probably be more consistent with my warmup and aim training. There are times when i feel really motivated and can easily get 1000+ kills on DM and times when I don't do any practicing for days. I'll give this a go, thanks!

as much as people praise aim, its actually not even mostly needed when playing. Cs is a game thats much more movement based rather than aim with all the peek types and stuff. So i would say dont worry about your aim and do prefire or Sudoku( to become smarter as a human ) and you can watch pro games aswell, but that wont help you since matchmaking. in summary, you should try to be a smarter player rather than just training aim since you can only improve aim until a certain point, but the human mind has no boundries and is destined to conquer

I am aware of this and it's another thing that I am trying to work on. :) I've made several threads about improving on the other aspects of the game, but aiming (and the aspects related to aiming) specifically is something I haven't made a thread about before. Even with that being said, I still don't think I'm by no means perfect at these other areas, but rather I'm slowly working on them and gradually getting better and better. And while I've gotten better at those, I've started feeling like my aim is lacking behind.

I feel like my movement is pretty good at least compared to the average, so I doubt that's the biggest problem in this case. And it's also something I am also constantly working on. :) (all the way from KZ skills to in-game counter-strafing and pretty much everything in between) And the last part? I can't really think of any situation where I'd have jump and instantly shoot right after (besides maybe jumping down from B apps on Mirage or heaven on Overpass), since most duels in CS are on stable ground anyway.

ok i saw demo you not that bad, but you do too many blind shots afraid to take duels your crosshair placement could be much better, you not doing perfect judgement of what to do in some situations you sprayed from a mile away when opponent was barely peeking, i mean really need to work on some judgement sometimes better do good move and die than to do bad move and win some lucky rounds whatever.

Which demo did you watch btw? I might be able to give some analysis as of what was going on BTS, since I usually play with a 5-stack.

And the spray thing is a bad habit that I haven't been able to get rid of yet. :( I still try to work on these aspects though. :) But thank you, I really appreciate the demo review! ^^

some players aim just look better because they force opponents to uncomfartable situations like lets say like using nades so perfecting only aim is dumb, you have ok aim i guess, what i mean by bhoping and shooting was practising small peeks like you jump on corner and peek or is that jump perfect peek already

Oh yeah yeah I get what you mean by the jump peek thing. I recently tried adding that to my gameplay, but I'm only getting started with it, so there's still room for improvement in that regard. And as for the nade thing you mentioned, that's another thing that I am working on. I can acknowledge that I could use my utility better in certain situations, but I also often tend to use them to support my teammates and this results in me not having too much utility for myself to flush out enemies or make them feel uncomfortable.

What worked for me was go 20-30mins DM or set a kill goal, every day as i wake up/before i go to bed. Play without sound to imrprove map awareness and really keeps you thinking. If you struggle with headshots play headshot only or try to just 1 tap and you will get the hang. Just repitition and commiment will get you far.

I think the biggest thing that might be holding me back is the lack of having a set routine. I play CS pretty much everyday, but I still don't have a set routine that I do everyday. Some days I do 1k kills in DM, some days I don't do anything. And as you said, repetition and commitment are important. :)

Maybe your going a bit overboard sometimes and thats why your not doing anything other days. Keep the routine short and simple, you say you may do 1k kills in dm, make that down to 200 or so but try to do it more regulary. Be pateint with the process, it will work out better in the future.

When I had troubles with my aim, I did 2 things. 1. Play Aimlab or KovaaK, the latter is better. 2. Actively think about your aim. Previously, I wasn't really thinking about it. I just autopiloted aim and was thinking about the rest. Now I think more about what I am shooting, in what way, and where my bullets go and are supposed to go. Helped me so much!

Another user also mentioned KovaaK and I was wondering is there a bit difference between it and Aim Lab? I use Aim Lab from time to time, but I've heard more good things about KovaaK. And I could try the 2nd thing you mentioned. I am usually the one calling in my 5-stack though, so I often have to focus on that as well, which might make me lose focus on my crosshair though. Still worth giving this a shot though! :)

So, it was pointed out yesterday that Aimlabs is just a data collection tool to get the info for yourself on where to improve. KovaaK on the other hand is a much more dynamic training tool which is simply better because it offers more challenges and trains you better. That second part, ooh boy. I call in my 5 stack as well and it's pretty fucking hard to focus on both. It takes a lot of practice but even if you actively think about it while practicing aim in KovaaK/Aimlabs and DM, your muscle memory should be able to retain some of it. And you'll get into the habit of doing it when you don't need to call that often. Let me know if you want more tips or if this works out! :)

I guess just talking and playing at the same time should help with this though. And I think this was enough, but I'll drop you a message if I need more help, thanks a lot man!
