How to Easily Control Spray in CS2 (Counter Strike 2)

Counter-Strike 2 (CS2) Limited Beta Test is here and hopefully, it is not ending anytime soon. There are plenty of new features added to the new Counter-Strike game making it a lot different from the old CS GO.

For some, the game might feel clunky with tougher aiming, while some say it is way easier. Originally Counter Strike has never been an easy game. It takes years and years of practice to master the game mechanics.

A lot of users in the CS2 community are talking about how tough spraying is at the moment. They feel weapons have a different spray pattern compared to CS GO and are much harder to control. Learning all the patterns for every weapon could be ridiculously time-consuming.

Here is an easy way in which you can learn how to spray in Counter-Strike 2.

How to Easily Control Spray in CS2 (Counter Strike 2)

It seems like Valve is trying to make the game easier for everyone this time around. As I said before, Counter-Strike takes years of experience to learn properly. This makes it really difficult for newcomers to survive considering the number of smurfs that dominate the servers at the moment.

So how do you learn to control spray quickly? Well, to be honest, you can’t. You need to practice and the more you train yourself, the better muscle memory you gain when it comes to spraying down enemies.

You would know exactly how much you need to drag down your mouse, to ensure your bullets don’t go all over the place. To make life easier Valve has introduced a new feature called the “Follow Recoil“.

Turn this on and you can actually spray like a god without even breaking a sweat.

  • Click on the Settings icon on the top left of your CS2 Home Screen.
  • Now go to Game
  • Scroll Down to Crosshair
  • Set Follow Recoil to Yes.

How is Follow Recoil helpful?

The Follow Recoil is basically a setting that lets your crosshair follow the spray pattern of the gun you are using.

Let’s say you are spraying with your AK-47. Once the first 2 bullets are fired, you will notice that the crosshair starts jumping up and going all over the place. It basically leaves the center of the screen and follows the bullets as they are being fired.

Now all you have to do is keep the crosshair on the target. This is not easy at the beginning but once you get a hang of it, you will be spraying down enemies a lot easily.  Hit the practice mode and try to bring the crosshair to the point from where you started spraying.

In other words, you need to move your mouse in the direction opposite to the way your crosshair is moving.

Back in CS GO, good players normally followed the bullet traces to control spray. If you are not used to that, this feature could really help you in the long run. If you manage master it, you will be able to spray down enemies at any range.

That is all you need to know about “How to Easily Control Spray in CS2 (Counter Strike 2)”.
