JKS CS:GO Settings: Crosshair and Config Guide

See how one of the top pros does it.

by Nikola L

JKS CS:GO Config is one of the most sought after configs in the CS:GO community since his popularity is absolutely trending in 2022. It is rumored that he will join G2 during the summer of 2022, of which we will inform readers as soon as the information is publicly confirmed. Here are JKS’ CSGO settings.

JKS Crosshair Settings: Downloadable Config

We will now go through JKS crosshair settings. An excerpt from his config that covers the crosshair settings is below (you can just paste it into your console or into your config files “autoexec.cfg” and “config.cfg”):

cl_crosshairstyle 4; cl_crosshair_drawoutline 0; cl_crosshaircolor 5; cl_crosshaircolor_r 255; cl_crosshaircolor_g 255; cl_crosshaircolor_b 255; cl_crosshairgap -3; cl_crosshairsize 2; cl_crosshairalpha 200; cl_crosshairthickness 1; cl_crosshairusealpha 1; cl_crosshairdot 0;

We are not successful esports champions like JKS is to change/fix his crosshair, but we’ll comment on the fact that his crosshair is purely white which may be an issue for some players on some maps when in a situation where you need to aim over a very bright background. You can try using the “cl_crosshair_drawoutline 1” command which will draw a nice black outline around all parts of the crosshair, granting the crosshair contrast while not taking up too much space. This crosshair does not have a dot in the middle, and it would be impossible to fit it, given how tight the crosshair is.

You could, however, change the crosshair color. There is this tool we found online, which has a database of common color codes and a tool to let you find out the color code for your color of preference (look for decimal codes).

Commands to change the colors are:

cl_crosshaircolor_r 255;
cl_crosshaircolor_g 255;
cl_crosshaircolor_b 255;

R is for Red, G is for Green, and B is for Blue. Values that are possible are between 0 and 255. Since all colors can be obtained with certain doses of Red, Green, and Blue, you just need to instruct the system on how many of which color(s) should be inserted. They are at 255 in JKS config because all colors maxed = white, and no colors (0,0,0) = black.
So, you just change the values based on what you find online.

JKS’ full config is below. You can just copy the below text, open Notepad, and save it as “config.cfg”. We will make a short commentary on some interesting bits under the config. Also, the Config.cfg file should be moved to the appropriate folder (please make sure to backup the old one) which is found under: \Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\(youraccountID)\730\local\cfg

Commentary on JKS’ Config for CS:GO

We see that JKS has done his best to speed up his grenade choices. You can’t really afford to lose time by cycling between all grenades you have to get to your smoke. Losing even half a second can be crucial in competitive CS:GO.

His “C” directly picks a Smoke, his “F” directly picks a Molotov or Incendiary. It’s strange that we don’t see a Flashbang bind here. His H seems to be the bind for jump throws of grenades (mostly smoke grenades).

“Mouse4” (Mouse Button 4) is interesting. It has the r_cleardecals command attached to it, which clears all blood, explosion residuals, etc.

In other words, it tries to reset the map to the “factory” state, so that there aren’t any distractions while he’s aiming. And it’s easy to click with the thumb all the time.

There are multiple sources for JKS configs that we have stumbled upon, that have some minor differences between each other, including the crosshair color and some minor keybinds, for example. This is why we encourage you to tinker with values and make your own config, whether it’s from scratch or by editing someone else’s.
