Do you think you can reach ApEX’s level with just copying his crosshair? Well… you can try.

A veteran in the Counter-Strike scene, Dan “apEX” Madesclaire is a name almost every CS: GO player has heard. The leader has remained on top teams consistently throughout his career. More recently, he transitioned to an international roster when Vitality added a few Danish members. Here are Apex’s CS: GO crosshair settings and viewmodel settings. 

With a career that started in Counter-Strike source, ApEX has been a top tier talent in CS: GO. He was a part of teams like LDLC, Titan, EnVyUs, G2 esports and now Team Vitality. In almost all of these teams, ApEX has led the team to a top rank in CS: GO and has reigned supreme. 

What are ApEX’s crosshair settings?

There’s no one solution for the perfect CS: GO crosshair. It depends on a lot of factors, but ultimately comes down to 

  • cl_crosshair_drawoutline 0
  • cl_crosshairalpha 255
  • cl_crosshaircolor 4
  • cl_crosshaircolor_b 00
  • cl_crosshaircolor_g 255
  • cl_crosshaircolor_r 50
  • cl_crosshairdot 1
  • cl_crosshairgap -1
  • cl_crosshairsize 5
  • cl_crosshairstyle 4
  • cl_crosshairthickness 1

ApEX crosshair has a size of 5 which is quite a high number compared to his peers. However, he also uses a gap of -1, which makes his crosshair more compact than others.

What are ApEX’s viewmodel settings?

The viewmodel determines the size of the weapon on your screen. At the highest levels, a difference of a few pixels can mean the difference between a kill and/or a round win. Here are ApEX’s CS: GO viewmodel settings.

  • viewmodel_fov 60
  • viewmodel_offset_x 2
  • viewmodel_offset_y 2
  • viewmodel_offset_z -2
  • Viewmodel_presetpos 1
  • cl_viewmodel_shift_left_amt 0.5
  • cl_viewmodel_shift_right_amt 0.25
  • viewmodel_recoil 1
  • cl_righthand 1

At the highest level, the viewmodel settings can mean a better reflex, adding that one second of early vision. This can impact the outcome of the round and that’s why a lot of pros tend to make changes to their viewmodel settings. 

ApEX’s bob settings in CS: GO

The bob settings determine the movement of the viewmodel when you are running across the map. A lower bob setting usually means less movement and less distraction during a competitive map. 

  • cl_bob_lower_amt 5
  • cl_bobamt_lat 0.4
  • cl_bobamt_vert 0.25
  • cl_bobcycle 0.98
