A good crosshair can make a world of difference in a game like CS:GO. As a matter of fact, we believe this honestly applies to every single FPS game, especially if it’s an online one. However, not everyone’s able to make a custom crosshair that suits their personal needs and tastes. Fortunately, there’s a way players can simply import crosshairs.
Importing crosshairs used to be rather difficult in the past, but it’s very straightforward now. All you have to do is launch CS:GO and go to the crosshair settings. Here, you’ll see an option to ‘import or share crosshair code’. You want to click this option and then paste the code of the crosshair you want to import.
We’ll be giving an in depth guide today on how you can import crosshairs in CS:GO.
Importing crosshairs in CS:GO is honestly as easy as can be. Still, many players assume it’s impossible to do it, just like how they assume removing stickers in CS:GO is impossible. However, to make the process even more simpler, we’ll be going through everything in a step by step fashion.
Now, of course, you can’t import a crosshair in CS:GO if there’s no crosshair in mind, right? Therefore, the first step for importing a crosshair is to find one that you really want. Now, you can find suitable crosshairs from many places, but if you want the best ones stick around till the end. This is because we’ll be going through the crosshairs of some of the most notable streamers and players in the game.
Once you’ve found a suitable crosshair, there should also be a code for that crosshair. To be more specific, it’ll be a code that reads “CSGO” followed by a combination of 25 numbers and alphabets. We highly recommend you save the code down somewhere because you’ll be needing it in just a bit.
With the crosshair code saved, you’ll want to now launch CS:GO. Get far enough until you reach the main menu, after which you want to click on the settings option. In settings, look for the ‘crosshair’ option and click it to be brought to a screen where you can adjust your crosshair and make a custom crosshair.
Don’t worry about all of those options, because you won’t be making your own crosshair. Instead, what you want to click on is the ‘“share or import crosshair code” option which will be at the very top of all the options.
As soon as you click on the “share or import crosshair code” option, you’ll be given a text box where you can type whatever you want. We’re sure most of you can get where we’re going with this. You want to paste the crosshair code that you saved before in this text box and then click on ‘import’.
That’s it, the crosshair you wanted will not be imported and you’ll be able to use the exact same crosshair whenever you want.
To make things even easier, we’re listing down the crosshair codes for some of the most noticeable streamers and players in CS:GO. Experiment with them all to find the one that suits you the best. Of course, if you’re interested in using what people consider to be the best crosshair settings for CS:GO, you can do that too.
Before the rather recent inclusion of the crosshair code system, players had to struggle a lot to get the crosshairs of their choice, Back then, there were two things players could do if they wanted to import a custom crosshair.
The first thing they could have done is to manually insert the file including the custom crosshair they wanted to import directly into CS:GO’s directory. As you can imagine, this process was a major pain, but the second method wasn’t all that better either. Those who didn’t manually use the crosshair’s file were forced to use third party software and applications to give themselves the custom crosshair they wanted.
The inclusion of the crosshair code system is an excellent one, and it’s great that Valve is actually listening to what the player base wants.
