Custom color of your crosshair in CS:GO

An important feature of the crosshair in CS: GO is its color. In the game, there are only 5 colors available: green, yellow, red, light blue and blue. However, maybe you want something special? For example, a deep black or pure white hue? The answer to this question we will outline in this material.

To paint the crosshair in your own color, the first thing to do is to enter this command into the console:

cl_crosshaircolor 5

With this command, we set the configuration that we will use the special color of the crosshair. Then, to indicate the color we need, enter 3 console commands:

  • cl_crosshaircolor_ggreen part
  • cl_crosshaircolor_bblack part
  • cl_crosshaircolor_rred part

Parameters of these options can be set from zero to 255. Each of the above options dilutes the original color with a certain shade (green, blue or red), and in the end we can select the color we need. By combining these 3 shades, we set the desired color of the crosshair. Down below you can see a list of commands that you need to write to the console, in order to specify a certain color.

These examples show only a small part of the possible color shades; in fact, you can create much more. However, if you did not pick up the acceptable color of the crosshair from the ones presented here, then you can enjoy the palette by alternately changing these values to find what you like. If the color of your crosshair in CS:GO is okay for you, we suggest reading the article about setting up the crosshair in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which tells about the necessary console commands for adjusting the crosshair.
