Crosshair Settings

A good crosshair can make or break Counter-Strike for you, the same carries over to CS2. You want the crosshair to have great visibility while also not taking up a lot of space. This ensures that it will remain unobtrusive and also stand out against any background. Stewie2k uses crosshair settings in CS2 that tick all of these boxes.

Keep in mind that the crosshair might appear different on your end than it does on his. This is simply because of different video settings. Regardless, his crosshair settings are as follows:

Sniper Width1.5
Crosshair Code: CSGO-QVV9H-dfdPZ-G97WJ-E3SxF-tHwzF 

Mouse Settings 

Once you have the right crosshair for taking the headshots, you need to be able to take them with precision. This is where your mouse comes in. While you can make do with other basic components in FPS games, having a good mouse will always be a plus. A good sensor with a sprinkle of the right settings is the key to getting better at CS.

Mouse settings that Stewie2k uses in CS2 boast high sensitivity with a low DPI. This lands him right in the middle of the eDPI scale, allowing him to perform those swift round-winning flicks while being mostly accurate.

If you want to do what he does when he picks his Endgame XM2WE up, the following settings are up for grabs:

Zoom Sensitivity1.1
Windows Sensitivity6

Monitor Settings

In an aim duel, you want to be able to take your fights smoothly. For this, you want your game to be as smooth as possible. Monitor settings in CS2 for Stewie2k are all about squeezing the most response time possible. Like most pros, he also prefers the low-res, high fps philosophy. While having a low resolution doesn’t guarantee high visual fidelity, we are not looking for that, are we? 

So, if you want to experience what Stewie sees, the following are his Monitor Settings:

Aspect Ratio4:3
Scaling ModeBlack Bars
Refresh Rate240Hz
Display ModeFullscreen

Video Settings

With a low resolution comes a blurry mess, and Stewie2k knows that. His video settings work in harmony with his monitor to bring about clear and visible objects on the screen. This comes about by high Anti-Aliasing and the maximum texture details the game can throw at you. With such a low resolution, these settings become a no-brainer.

Stewie2k’s Video Settings are as given: 

Boost Player ContrastEnabled
Wait for Vertical SyncDisabled
Multisampling Anti-Aliasing Mode4X MSAA
Global Shadow QualityVery High
Model / Texture DetailVery High
Texture Filtering ModeAnisotropic 16X
Shader DetailHigh
Particle DetailLow
Ambient OcclusionDisabled
High Dynamic RangeQuality
FidelityFX Super ResolutionDisabled [Highest Quality]

Viewmodel Settings

Your in-game model visible on the screen can sometimes take up a huge chunk of your display, making it harder to see the other objects. These other objects could very well be other enemies that you could have a harder time reacting to. Just like most settings, this also mostly comes down to player preference.

Stewie2k uses pretty subtle ViewModel settings in CS2. He also prefers to have the ViewModel not take up a lot of space by having the stock almost out of view.

You can also have the same view with the following settings: 

Offset X2.5
Offset Y0
Offset Z-1.5
Console Code: viewmodel_fov 68; viewmodel_offset_x 2.5; viewmodel_offset_y 0; viewmodel_offset_z -1.5; viewmodel_presetpos 3; 

Launch Options

Stewie2k uses a couple of launch options in CS2 to give him a slight edge in the game. He sets his frequency/refresh rate to 240, game priority to high, and disables the entry video to give himself a few extra seconds when loading in. While not extremely game-changing, it is better to have these options enabled if not at all.

Launch Options: -freq 240 -high -novid

To apply these launch options, go through the following steps:

  1. Open Steam and locate CS2 in your game library.
  2. Right-click on it and click on Properties.
  3. In the General tab, click on Launch Options.
