Practice makes perfect, and luckily for Counter Strike players there are simple ways to hone your skills and gain an edge over your opponent. Unlike CS:GO’s FPS competitor Valorant, in Counter Strike map creation and modding is open to everyone. This has lead to members in the community creating maps that will help you develop the skills needed to be the best Counter Strike player you can be.

In this article I will be covering the custom maps that you can download through steam that will help you improve. This will include maps specializing in training your aim, reflexes, warming up, utility use, pre-firing, recoil control, movement/jumping and a crosshair generator map. We truly are lucky to have such great and intelligent people in our community to spend extensive time creating these maps for us.

Without further ado, here is your 2020 guide to CS:GO training maps.

Aim/Reflex training is one of the best ways to improve in this game. Playing against real people is always good practice but to really improve your aim you need to practice raw aiming skills over and over again. This is because of how much your aim relies on your muscle memory. Training_aim_csgo2 is a custom map that allows you to do this.

This map has a variety of training modes that can help new players as well as veterans improve. It even tracks the targets you hit or missed allowing you to tell if you are improving or not. To reference the map creator, this map is “a versatile and powerful map for training your aim.”
