We know how hard it can be to climb those ranks in CS: GO as it still remains one of if not the most competitive first-person shooter games out. With players all around the world trying so hard to climb and improve day by day, you need to be sure that your gear or your settings don’t hold you back from improving and popping off in your matches. So we decided to share the exact setup Ax1le uses in his games to get those crazy clips you see.
Who is Ax1le?
Sergey Rykhtorov or better known as Ax1le is a professional counter-strike player who is currently playing for the team Gambit Esports. He has come out to be one of the best emerging players of the new generation of counterstrike and has already earned over US $400,000 from competitive play at just 19 years old.
He is already coming out as the next big star from Russia following the footsteps of players like electronic and Boombl4. We know many players want to use his setup for their games as well so below we have described the complete setup of Ax1le.
Monitor (Benq XL2546K)
The monitor that Ax1le uses is the Benq XL2546K. It is one of the best monitors offered by BenQ which is a company known for its quality gaming devices. It is a very high-end monitor so it is a little costly, but other older monitors of BenQ are also really good so we recommend that you try those if this monitor falls out of your budget.

- Picture ModeFPS 1
- Low Blue Light0
- Black eQualizer4
- Color TemperatureUser Define
- Instant ModeOff
- AMA- High
Ax1le uses NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3080, so if you are not using an NVIDIA Graphic Card your video settings might be different. In case you are also using an NVIDIA graphic card then we highly recommend you use his exact settings which are as follows.
- Global Shadow QualityVery Low
- Model / Texture DetailLow
- Texture StreamingDisabled
- Effect DetailLow
- Shader DetailLow
- Boost Player ContrastEnabled
- Multicore RenderingEnabled
- Multisampling Anti-Aliasing Mode4x MSAA
- FXAA Anti-AliasingDisabled
- Texture Filtering ModeAnisotropic 4x
- Wait for Vertical SyncDisabled
- Motion BlurDisabled
- Triple-Monitor ModeDisabled
- Use Uber ShadersDisabled
Mouse ZOWIE EC2 GLOSSY
Unlike most other esports players who usually go for a Logitech mouse, Ax1le makes the unconventional choice of using the ZOWIE EC2 GLOSSY mouse which is a mouse by BenQ.
This mouse is highly underrated in my opinion and is one of the best mouses you can decide to use. We are already starting to see more players use this mouse and many more players will surely use it in the future.
Given below are the mouse settings used by Ax1le-
- Raw Input-On
- Zoom Sensitivity-1.00
- Windows Sensitivity-6
- Mouse Acceleration-Off
Headset HyperX Cloud II
HyperX Cloud II is a very solid pair of headphones and is an industry staple when it comes to gaming as HyperX is known for its high-quality sound and comfortable build. If you are looking for a solid pair of headphones yourself you should check out our list of the Top 5 Headphones for Valorant.
Keyboard OK CLICK 950G
Another underrated choice, The OK CLICK 950G is rarely used by pro players, and considering its quality, you can get it for very cheap. We highly recommend that you get this for your setup but you might find it difficult to buy this keyboard as it is a very unknown brand and may not be available in your region.
Anyone who has ever played a shooter knows how important it is to find the perfect crosshair for you and we highly recommend that you find a crosshair that is best for you instead of copying someone else’s crosshair. But using a pro player’s settings as the base to edit on is always a good idea. So here are Ax1le’s crosshair settings.
Similar to crosshair we believe that the best key binds for you are the ones that you are the most comfortable with, but still you might want to have a look at what the best players are using to maybe tweak your own settings. So here are Ax1le’s keybindings –
|LOOK AT WEAPON|
|MESSAGE MODE 2|
|BUY AMMO 1|
|BUY AMMO 2|
That’s it! That’s all you need to know about Ax1le’s game settings and his setup to get started but be sure to find the perfect fit for you by trying out different stuff. Hope this guide helped you and good luck on your climb through the ranks in Counterstrike Global Offensive.
