You can set your own crosshair or copy a code from a crosshair you like and import it into your copy of CS2.

If you're an avid Counter-Strike player, then you have no choice but to make the switch from CS:GO to CS2. The former's servers shut down and it was replaced by the newest Counter-Strike title. There's a lot that has changed, but you can rest easy knowing you can import your crosshair into CS2.

You'll need to know your CS2 crosshair code if you want to do things the easy way. Otherwise, you'll be forced to edit all of the CS2 crosshair settings until you get your desired crosshair. Both methods are done in the settings menu.

The best part about importing a crosshair to CS2 is that you can use codes from CS:GO. If you ever copied your code and saved it somewhere, you can simply paste it into the crosshair code box, hit Import, and take it into your next match.

This also works for professional players. If there's a pro whose crosshair stands out, but you haven't seen any code for their CS2 crosshair just yet, their CS:GO code works just fine. Find it, copy it, and import it just as you would any others.
