Economy Discipline 

Economy management is a vital part of getting better at CSGO. It would be best if you learned when to buy and what to buy. First-round, also known as Pistol Round, plays a crucial role in Economy management in the next few round. Winning the 1st round plays the main role because it helps win the next round because of the economic benefit obtained from CS:GO winning bonus. Winning the round gives you more money then losing the round and helps in creating a good team economy earlier in-game.

Understand when to buy and when not to buy. Never buy on eco round as it will damage your economy in the next round when it is a buy-around. Planting a C4 gives a 300$ bonus to your whole team, so it plays a crucial role in the game. Understand the loss bonus and win bonus and understand the weapon cash bonus method of CS:GO.

Practice Aim

Just remember you can’t get wins without frags, and you can’t get frags if you can’t aim. So your key focus should be to practice hard and improve your aim in the game. These are the few steps you should start with:

1.Setup your resolution and crosshair and always practice on the same config. You can set up these on few workshop maps such as :

{crashz’ Crosshair Generator v2}

{Conig Generator}

2. Practicing some CS: GO workshop maps such as –

{Fast Aim / Reflex Training}

{Aim Botz – Training}

{Recoil Master – Spray Training}

{Yprac Arena – Bot Practice}

Practice your aim and then learn simple things like where the bullet hits, damage given by different weapons, spray pattern, etc.

3. Learning crosshair placement: Always aim at a predictable area where your enemy may come. Crosshair placement plays a crucial role in Aiming, and it decides who will win the fight.

Positioning & Angles

Effectively utilize positioning and cover to win more duels and try to win more rounds. Learn to take passive angles when you are defending or attacking and expecting someone to push, so you can get aim and positioning advantage over the enemy team. Try taking the positions and angles that are less expected by the opponents. Use grenades, Molotov, and Smoke to get cover from one angle when exposed to two or more angles.

Team Roles

To rank up fast, you need to try playing in a 5-man lobby to quickly understand and make teamwork with your teammates and win the game. All these things will help you in rank up fast in CSGO.

Try understanding the roles and practice together till you all, as a team, achieve your desired rank.  Happy fragging. Practice hard and play fair to go pro.
