Fl0m CSGO Sensitivity & Settings

Image credit: Fl0m/ Twitch

Professional CSGO players who also compete at a high level are so fun to watch. They often display unbelievable skills and plays that are absolutely fun to watch. If you want to watch a professional player who, in their off time, also teaches people who to play better, then you might have a considerably harder time looking for one.

I highly recommend Fl0m though! He’s not only entertaining and highly skilled, but he’s also educational and easy to listen to. It’s easy to see why the CSGO community loves him.

Fl0m has always been interested in informing and entertaining the community. It’s our turn to know more about him and how his mind works while in the game.

So, in this article, I’ve compiled Fl0m CSGO sensitivity & settings. If you’re a newcomer to the game, you may consider this as a starting point. If you’re looking to improve your gameplay, you may also want to read our analysis along with Fl0m’s comments about this settings and sensitivity choices.

For Color Mode, there are two options which are “Computer Monitor” and “Television”. The television color mode desaturates the colors of the game while also brightening it a bit. As Fl0m said, if you’re having issues looking at dark areas in the map, or if your monitor isn’t as good as it was, then you may opt to have television color mode.

Fl0m also has his Global Shadow Quality, Effect Detail, and Shader Detail on high because there’s actually a significant in-game advantage to it. Fl0m made a separate video talking about these settings and how it enables him to see Molotov fire better.

On the other hand, the other video settings are disabled because they’re not exactly advantageous in any way. In fact, in most cases, disabling these settings and using bilinear texture filtering mode can even increase FPS in CSGO.

There are a couple of things that Fl0m highlighted for audio. The first one is the master volume which can also depend on your Windows volume. You can put it in 1% if your Windows volume is 100%, and vice versa.

The next audio setting that he highlights is the audio output configuration. Unlike other games, particularly role-playing games and open world games, surround sound isn’t as good in CSGO. Surround sound creates a sort of spatial sound that provides better immersion. If you’re wearing headphones, surround sound makes it seem like the sound is coming from everywhere and not just two sound sources.

This can be quite distracting, however, and as per Fl0m, it doesn’t sound that good in CSGO. He recommends using either stereo headphones or speakers, depending on what you use.

The third thing Fl0m mentioned is the VOIP volume. It’s the volume of your teammate’s voice chat. It’s really more of a “positive vibes” thing, since match making can quickly become toxic.

Last but not least, Fl0m prefers to have the ten second warning volume at 10%. This music setting refers to the countdown that you have left to diffuse a bomb. If you have a CSGO music kit, you have to be wary though. There are some wonky interactions between the ten second warning and the music kit, where you may notice that the actual count down doesn’t match with what’s being said.

Fl0m mentioned that he likes changing his crosshair settings from time to time, so I can’t promise that this will also be the same crosshair that he uses when you watch him streaming a few weeks from now. However, he does tend to gravitate towards similar settings, particularly the cyan color.

Fl0m also mentioned that he likes using the static default crosshair. You can enable this style by going to the console and typing the command “cl_crosshairstyle 1”.

Fl0m’s viewmodel is akin to CounterStrike: Source’s viewmodel, which is the CS game that he started with. Compared to the default viewmodel, Fl0m’s viewmodel is just a bit moved forward.

Fl0m doesn’t like his viewmodel to be bobbing too much. In fact, he doesn’t like any bobbing movements at all. You may notice some minute movements, but overall, the hands are pretty stationary.

Fl0m Gaming PC

For his PC, Fl0m has an Intel Core i9-9900K for his processor and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080. While these gears may be too much, as a streamer, Fl0m is compelled to use a high-end computer for better use and speed. If you’re a regular home gamer though, you can easily get away with a low-range PC if your budget is not yet up to par.

Since Fl0m is sponsored by SteelSeries, most of his peripherals are from the brand. The only difference is his Samsung Odyssey G7 gaming monitor.
