    Hey, I am fairly new to CS:GO and I just wanted a few tips and tricks. For example: don't AD spam, dont crouch walk around corners, etc. I would love to hear all of them.

    Holding your knife out makes you run/walk faster
    Enemy's can not hear you while holding down shift while walking

    Have good communication; learn callouts before playing maps
    Always check corners, but be sure to check one at a time. Do NOT expose yourself to 2 or more spots in which an enemy may be.

    Do different knives also do more damage? or all they all the same?

    If you can switch to burst fire on a gun is that better? or is it better to stay in automatic and then burst with a trigger finger?

    Do you mean the default call outs using the "Z, X, and C" keys or just voice call out, "Sniper guarding that staircase"

    No, different knives to the same damage. However, right clicking a knife will do more damage then left clicking. The right click has shorter range. The right click also has an instant kill to the back.
    The only guns that have burst are the Glock and the Famas. This is up to preference, although the glock burst is best at close range, and the Famas burst increases accuracy.
    While you may use the radio commands, by callouts I meant spots on a map. For example, you would call out something like "3 B tunnels" if there are 3 people at B tunnels.

    Hope this helps!

    Oh yeah this helped very much! You seem like a very knowledgeable guy, thanks for the help!

    No problem, but I would just like to say that I was not very clear on the callouts part.
    What I mean is that you should learn the names of certain points on the maps, such as "Catwalk" on Dust 2 or "Heaven" on Nuke. They can get more specific and refer to smaller areas, such as "Pizza" on Dust. This callout is very small, and is the size of about 2 or 3 players. This knowledge helps greatly when communicating, compared to saying "The area to the right of the central path"

    I am not a CS:GO player but I used to play CS 1.6 a lot.
    1. use the sounds to your advantage: Use a surround sound setup or use Razer Surround for virtual surround and use it to your advantage
    2. Always check the corners and approach while holding shift key.
    3. Play and find the weapon that you are comfortable with for a specific map. Some maps require long range and some require only medium range so you don't need the power of a long range rifle in small-medium sized maps as with high power comes huge recoils. In case of big maps which require powerful rifles select the one that suites you the most and control your fire, pull the trigger for very short time so you will be firing less than 3 or 4 bullets per click. This will mean you have more accuracy and save bullets.
    4. In close range just don't worry about point 3 as you can spray your gun and you will most probably hit all the bullets if you are facing the right direction.
    5. Try to approach a sniper from behind if you spot him before he could take you out.
    6. Don't stay in one place as this will mean you are predictable. And if you are a sniper keep changing positions constantly. I used to be a sniper and if you miss a shot then it is better to immediately change your position as your enemies will now try to flank you and take you out.
    7. Stay with the team always. It is a general tendency for the sniper to go and camp in one place alone leaving the team behind. This is not a good idea, the duty of a sniper is to protect the team from a high point where he can see places that other team members can't. This mean a sniper's job is to give information on enemy movements and take out the targets while not revealing his location.
    8. If you suspect an enemy sniper then use flash grenades as this will disable his vision temporarily.
    9. Use smoke grenades during encounters to change positions and to flank them by surprise.
    10. If your mouse allows you to adjust X and Y axis sensitivity then reduce Y axis sensitivity, keep it below X axis sensitivity as this will help you keep the aim above chest for most of the times.
    There is more but I am too lazy to type more, hope it is of any use in CS:GO

    I believe those tips can be used for way more than just CS:GO as they look like great all around tips. I do have the Razer Deathadder so the X and Y sensitivity difference can be enabled. Thanks for all of these awesome tips. I, myself, am not a sniper but I can pass those tips on to my teammate who is.

    My advice? Go configure your minimap using your console and reduce the size of the minimap. It helps with better game sense. Been playing casual so much and it frustrates me a lot when a team mate doesn't even know someone got killed right behind them.. and between deaths, learn how to read the minimap.. you'll be far better at noticing enemies coming at which direction and sometimes might get you out of sticky situations..

    I'll make it quick and simple (TL;DR)

    I'm only an eagle on csgo


    2. Turn AWAY from flashbangs reduces time blinded

    3. WALK when approaching choke points/ enemy lines

    4. Taking out your KNIFE makes a sound that enemy can hear

    5. NEVER use burst fire mode

    6. COMPLETELY STOP before firing (at least long range)

    7. Fire in short bursts (1-3 rounds)

    8. DO the OBJECTIVE


    10. Practice & be patient (some amazing players out there)
