Shroud doesn’t play as much CS:GO as he used to, but that doesn’t stop him from destroying 95 percent of the matches that he plays. The former Cloud9 superstar has taken a keen interest in battle royale games but returns to his old stomping grounds for the occasional CS:GO stream. 

Shroud made the call to take his business to Mixer in the last quarter of 2019. Even though the move netted him a decrease in viewership, there’s no doubt that he has a better deal going on with Mixer than he had with Twitch. Despite a lower number of viewers, it only took shroud four months to gain one million followers on Mixer. 

We were able to find all of shroud’s CS:GO settings, including his DPI and crosshair configurations. Whenever the king decides to step back into CS:GO, he dusts off these settings and starts raining down carnage.

There’s no guarantee that you’ll turn into a mini shroud after matching your settings to his, but they’ll certainly serve well as a starting point for your own configuration and may even help you improve your skillset.

Here are all of shroud’s settings for CS:GO.

Shroud’s autoexec and config

Highlights of shroud’s config

If you’d prefer keeping most of your settings or just want to avoid going through all the technical details, here are the most important settings from shroud’s config.
