Different Types Of Aiming
Before we talk about the different routines and exercises, it’s important to teach you the different parts of aiming. Each part of aiming has a different purpose and you can train each othem in Aimlab. Different types of aiming is more effective in different situations and with different guns in CS. Also the quality of your mouse will either contribute to your aim or detract from it, if you don’t know what is best to use, here is my gear list.
For example tracking and flicking is more important with an AWP in CS compared to microadjusting. For pistols microadjusting is much more important than flicking. This is because every pistol round can become an ADAD spam, where players strafe back and forth to mess up their hitbox.
The different types of aiming are: flicking, tracking, target switching and micro adjusting. Flicking is when you quickly readjust your crosshair to a target that is far from your crosshair. Tracking is the skill you use when you trace a target that is moving or strafing. Good aim comes when you are comfortable with your gear, choose the right mouse because that is the most important part.
Target switching is when you readjust your aim to a target’s head. Finally micro adjusting is the movement of your wrist when you are trying to make small crosshair adjustments. This skill usually happens when a player is strafing and you are trying to track their head. Instead of tracking you are using small micro flicks or micro adjustments to hit a single click on their head.
If you are a beginner when it comes to training your aim in general, choose the beginner routine. But, if you have some experience with training your aim within aim trainers or CS:GO itself, choose intermediate. You can move up a level after every 2 weeks, as you feel comfortable.
