Top 10 Overwatch tips

Listen to the Sounds

It’s hard not to make noises in the virtual world of CS:GO, but still, you should be very careful with stomping and banging around. Opponents will be able to distinguish your position and organize an unexpected attack. At the same time, you should use this feature for the benefits of your team. Always play with a headset to hear everything properly. Make decisions on the base of those sounds. This simple but very effective advice will help you to rank up in CS:GO fast.

Consider the Economy

Players should earn a lot in the game and wisely spend these funds. The in-game economy is often ignored by beginners, and this is a mistake. Your purchases depend on many factors. For example, after losing the pistol round or having no resources in the middle game, the team should go eco - buy nothing and save for the future. Some weapons (most SMGs) give an additional killing bonus, so you can use them to boost your budget. The CS:GO economy is a vast topic, and you should delve deeper into it.

Learn from Professionals

Read guides, watch streams, and follow esports tournaments. Feel like a sponge that absorbs CS:GO tips and tricks to use them in your games. Guides can offer new information and open fresh understanding. For example, check out this simple but advanced CS:GO guide on How to Aim Better in CS:GO on DMarket. Twitch streamers spend lots of time in the game, so they definitely know some interesting tricks. Esports teams earn a lot of money, so their fights make up the best CS:GO possible. Watch matches and listen to CS:GO pro tips to learn a lot of new and helpful stuff.

Choose One Map and Learn It. Then Move Forward

Each map in Counter-Strike is more than walls and objects. These locations define the game rules, behavior of both teams, possible strategies, and overall playing experience. To get better at CS:GO, you should become good on specific maps. Take a look at the best CS:GO maps. Choose the one you like the most (for any reason). Start practicing on it and develop your skills until you reach a very good level. Here are the four most popular maps to choose from:

  • Mirage
  • Inferno
  • Dust II
  • Nuke Use our guide on CS:GO Callouts to learn the map of your choice properly. Remember the names of all the internal places - it’s important for communication with teammates. Don’t allow yourself to get bored with your map. Feel free to have fun in other locations - after all, you need to learn them too. Don’t get stuck with one map for too long. Make the next step when you are happy with your current progress.

Communicate with Your Teammates

You can be a good player but you can’t win CS:GO matches alone. It’s a team-based shooter first of all (as well as Team Fortress 2), so start developing your communication skills from the very beginning. Share your position, inform other players on the enemy actions, coordinate your strategy in each round, and just share your emotions. This will help to bring you the most powerful excitement. And you certainly will be much more effective in the game. The next step here is to play with the same people again and again. Form your team or join one - the most profitable esports organizations have been created in this way.

Avoiding "Been here all along!".

Sombra will come out of invisibility silently if she uses an emote - I recommend "Hold On" as it is a short and silent emote - Amused and Masterpiece have audio with the emote and are quite lengthy.

Mei's wall is great for assisting Mercy with rezzes.

It's probably common sense to most, but I've been seeing some Mei's in my games paying close attention to our Mercy and providing walls for her when she needs to rez.It's great to see this, especially since nobody has been asking them to do it. So just a friendly tip for anyone who likes playing Mei, take care of your Mercy, get more out of your rezzes :)

Learn Map Control

Beginners in CS:GO may try to bring behavior patterns from other shooters, such as Battle Royale games - and this is not how to be better at CSGO. The game is not about just keeping alive and staying together to protect the team. Here you have straightforward goals, and you have to control the map to achieve them. Of course, you should know the locations and behave as a team, so this tip is a sequence of the previous two. Counter-Terrorists should focus on covering approaches to the bombsites and play patiently in defense. Terrorists should not only rush to a bombsite but also think about clearing the place and then protecting it from any enemies.

Bots and Casual Matches before Competitive

It’s a special feeling when you jump into CS:GO for the first time and find yourself in total chaos, not knowing what is going on. Perhaps you don’t know where that bombsite is, how the enemies can kill you so quickly, and why everyone is yelling at you. The CS:GO community is quite toxic, so you may get an unpleasant starting experience. Practice with bots - it’s a great opportunity to understand the game basics and not become frustrated with your initial steps. But don’t play with bots for a long time. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a multiplayer game. When you know what to do and can kill at least the easy bots, jump into the Casual matchmaking. Shootouts here do not affect CS:GO ranks, so players are rather forgiving to newcomers - they come here to practice and have fun. You will be able to enter Competitive matches only after reaching the experience level Private Rank 2. Feel free to take your time and start fighting for your rank only once you have strongly improved skills. And take a look at the advice on becoming CS:GO Global Elite.
