Es3tag has played in several big name teams in the past. Here’s how you can (try to) play like him.

The Ninjas in Pyjamas are an age-old name in Counter-Strike Global Offensive.The team has carved a name for itself in CS: GO history. However, the org is rebuilding with young blood and the new roster has already reached the PGL Antwerp CS: GO Major playoffs. One of the core members of the team is Es3tag whose skill and aim has been unmatched on the team. Here are Es3tag’s crosshair settings and CS: GO viewmodel settings.

What are Es3tag’s crosshair settings?

The CS: GO crosshair can take on various forms and it is upto the individual player on what’s best for him. Different players have different preferences. While some players like to have a centered dot, many don’t. There are players that like thick crosshairs but there are also several that prefer a thin outline. Here are Es3tag’s crosshair settings.

  • cl_crosshair_drawoutline 1
  • cl_crosshairalpha 250
  • cl_crosshaircolor 4
  • cl_crosshaircolor_b 50
  • cl_crosshaircolor_g 250
  • cl_crosshaircolor_r 50
  • cl_crosshairdot 1
  • cl_crosshairgap 0
  • cl_crosshairsize 2
  • cl_crosshairstyle 5
  • cl_crosshairthickness 1
  • cl_crosshair_sniper_width 1

ES3tag prefers his crosshair with a dot and has a custom color for his crosshair. The player has been a force so far in 2022 and regularly puts up big numbers in terms of statistics and also is a big supporting member for the squad.

What are Es3tag’s viewmodel settings?

The viewmodel is the size and shape of the weapon in your hand when you play CS: GO. The default model is often enough for most players, but at the highest levels, the viewmodel can be distraction and can mean the difference between a round win or a round loss. Most professional players prefer to adjust their viewmodels to give them the slight advantage compared to their peers. Here are Es3tag’s viewmodel settings that you can adopt to improve your gameplay.

  • viewmodel_fov 68
  • viewmodel_offset_x 2.5
  • viewmodel_offset_y 0
  • viewmodel_offset_z -1.5
  • viewmodel_presetpos 3
  • cl_viewmodel_shift_left_amt 1.5
  • cl_viewmodel_shift_right_amt 0.75
  • viewmodel_recoil 0
  • cl_righthand 1

Normally, the viewmodel is something most beginners do not tinker with. It’s important when you go professional and need to ensure the same level of comfort no matter where you are playing. 

CS: GO bob settings for Es3tag

The bob setting determines the amount of movement for the viewmodel when you are running across the map. The bob setting is important because it can mean a lesser distraction compared to others. At the highest level of the game, every second of extra reaction time can mean the difference between a round win or a loss. So the bob setting assumes significance, because it can mean better stability and better performance regardless of which system and which country you are playing from.

  • cl_bob_lower_amt 21
  • cl_bobamt_lat 0.4
  • cl_bobamt_vert 0.25
  • cl_bobcycle 0.98
