The best CS2 aim training maps

Even the best would fall behind the competition without proper training.

An ability to aim is the foundation of any aspiring Counter-Strike player. There will always be more aspects of the game that you’ll need to work on to improve, but you’ll never reach your full potential without honing your skills in some CS2 aim training maps.

Improving your aim will require dedication, determination, and a strong will. Even if you know all the basics, you have to make peace with the fact that there will always be parts of your game you can improve. 

Valve’s community workshop is filled with impressive maps that work wonders to train aim, and as of early November 2023, those workshop maps are now playable in CS2.

Here are the best aim training maps in CS2 to help you get you to the next level.

Best CS2 aim training workshop maps

Crashz’s Crosshair Generator v4

Before you move into running and gunning down your targets, you should make sure you have your optimal crosshair setup. Crashz’s Crosshair Generator is the perfect tool for this, giving you an easy to use menu for creating a crosshair.

This workshop “map” lets you view what your crosshair looks like against different map backdrops, and lets you customize the length, thickness, gap, outline, opacity, and color of your crosshair. You can even pick one of several pro player crosshairs to use as is, or to use as a baseline for your custom crosshair. There’s also a practice area against moving targets against any map backdrop.

Once it’s done, you can hit save and exit to keep your crosshair, and save the code to have on hand for the future.

Fast Warmup – Bot Training

When you first load into Fast Warmup, it doesn’t look like much. But a little bit of exploring shows that there’s plenty to take advantage of:

  • To start an aim training exercise with bots spawning at various spots around you, go left and down into the grass and kill the bot hiding there. There are settings and different weapons behind you.
  • Shoot the Target grafitti to launch an Aim Labs-like target practice scenario.
  • Go behind where you spawn in to go to a large range with customizable bots. You can change their number, distance, and movement to suit your practice needs.
  • Next to that, there’s an AWP Flick challenge for practicing your quick sniper shots.
  • There’s even a crouch jump movement challenge that takes you around the entire map.

There’s a little bit of everything in this workshop mod that’s perfect for aim training in CS2.

Aim Botz

Aim Botz is a classic aim training map that’s made its grand return to CS2 and was a favorite of CS:GO players for years.

This gigantic aim stage features countless different bots and comes with a good variety of options. Taking the Aim Botz challenge can become a vital part of your warmup routine, and the menu features a number of different variables: random bot movement, uneven ground, headshot only, and sprayable walls.

These are our go-to suggestions for CS2 aim training maps, but there’s an entire Workshop for you to explore on your own if you want to find the perfect one for you.
