What’s S1mple’s viewmodel settings?

The viewmodel is the character you are playing in CS: GO. It’s the point of view on how you see the CS: GO map. The CS: GO viewmodel includes the character's hands (gloves), arm position, gun position etc. Making changes to the viewmodel allows you to free up more space on the screen, allowing you to see more of the map. This will help you in getting your shots faster than your opponents which could have an impact on the overall outcome of the round. 
  • viewmodel_fov 68
  • viewmodel_offset_x 2.5
  • viewmodel_offset_y 0
  • viewmodel_offset_z -1.5

  • cl_viewmodel_shift_left_amt 1.5
  • cl_viewmodel_shift_right_amt 0.75
  • viewmodel_recoil 0
  • cl_righthand 1
These were the CS: GO settings used by S1mple. As one of the best players in the world, using his crosshair and game settings would be an excellent starting point for any CS: GO player.

Started esports with Dota, moved to CS, then OW, back to Dota 2, and now a bit of Valorant. I love city-building games, and have spent hours in Cities: Skylines only to have the traffic defeat me. Currently on a reading spree - the aim is to read 150 books in 2023. Can I do it? Would you?
