Best radar settings in CS:GO

How to set up the perfect radar in CS:GO.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive really is one of a kind when it comes down to personal customization options. You’re able to build the game’s HUD in almost any way that you want, even to the point of altering the way your hero model bobs when walking in-game.

Naturally, this level of customization extends to the radar in-game at the top-right of your monitor. If you’ve ever watched pro players on Twitch, or seen their video highlights on YouTube, you’ll probably have noticed that they’re not using the default radar settings.

Instead, many of the experienced players and pro’s are able to see the entire map on their radar, which gives them as much information as possible. And as you should know, information is one of, if not the most important thing in CS:GO.

We’d highly recommend you having a radar which allows you to have an overview of the whole map. It gives you constant and reliable information on where your teammates and threats are positioned, especially if you’re unfamiliar with a certain map. So, it’s definitely worth to get rid of the default radar, and swap to a better one.

The Simple Radar made by tl;dr, is the right choice for players that are interested in changing their radar for the first time. It offers eight different combinations, so that you can get it exactly the way you want it.  You want call-outs? No problem. Want to be a minimalist and only use the map outline? That’s all up to you. The Simple Radar is 100% VAC safe and FACEIT approved, so you don’t need to worry about getting banned for using it. This optimized radar will definitely make things easier for you, and you’ll never miss a good opportunity for getting information in-game that can help you and your teammates.
