Tips to level up your rank in CS: GO

Without wasting much time, let us get into all the tricks and tips to level up your rank in CS: GO:

Practice Shooting

One of the major reasons why CS: GO is still considered the goat is that the game puts immense pressure on your aim and the way you play more than anything else. Hence, the first thing that you've got to do is to practice your aim and shooting. This is the first step to playing better in your matches. This rule also applies to any of the FPS shooter games that you are going to play. To ensure that you have good shooting practice, do not enter into the matches first. Make sure to get into a practice session with the bots in the range. Another thing that you can do is go to the Steam Workshop, where you will find tons of maps from the community, which will help you practice your aim better. After you are done with the maps, make sure to play one or two Deathmatch games, and then you will be all good to go!

Also, make sure to keep in mind the spray patterns of the different guns. If you can master the spray patterns, then you can easily manage to shoot with accuracy and then be able to counteract the recoil of the guns that you are using.

Better your Movements

This is another thing that you have to keep in mind. CS: GO also punishes those strongly who do not have a good movement. Hence, you have to practice shooting and then also work on your movement. There are a variety of movements that you can master:

  • Fast Peek
  • Wide Peek
  • Jump Peek
  • Jiggle Peek

All you need to do is try to master all these peeks and movements, and you will be all set to conquer your enemies. However, you can try to practice them in the Deathmatches, and with the bots in the game, for you will need some good amount of practice with these peeks, before you carry them out flawlessly.

Handling Enemies

This is one of the most important things to keep in mind. The way things work in CS: GO is a lot different from other FPS games. You are not always awarded XPs or your rank is not always based on how many enemies you kill in the matches or your headshots, but rather how well you handle your enemies with tactics. The basic difference between a beginner and a pro player is that, a beginner would just start to shoot the enemies once they spot them. However, a pro will not shoot immediately when they spot an enemy. They will try to make use of this situation. They might camp there and try to see if that enemy is trying to push them, or if there are others waiting for them. Hence, it is better to attack the enemy when you are completely sure about the condition your enemies are in.

Resting after Defeat

This is another important thing to keep in mind. If you find that you have faced two consecutive defeats in competitive matches, make sure to take some rest. It is not always a good day when you are going to perform extremely well. Hence, after two losses, one after the other, it is important to rest and cool down. Maybe you could try to play behind your team, so that you take the time to strategize and all. This will help you recover better for the next day. If you keep pushing yourself harder even after a few losses will also affect your rank. It is recommended to go to the range and practice your aim and movement a bit too.


These were some of the tips and tricks to help you level your game in CS: GO. Using these will help you to rank up easily, but you have to make sure to follow them thoroughly, and also to keep improvising and adapting to various circumstances in the game.
