CSGO Viewmodel Commands

The commands in this page will explain how you can modify your camera's field of view (FOV), and view model (the location of your gun/character's hands).

Your in-game hand and weapon can take up a huge chunk of your screen, limiting your first-person mode vision. This is called your viewmodel, and it can often cover up your screen more than they should.

Just like crosshairs and DPIs, every player may have different preferences on how they would like to set their viewmodel settings.

However, we can recommend some viewmodel settings that are used by the best Counter Strike Global Offensive players in the world. Feel free to copy their viewmodel settings if you’re having trouble deciding on values!

The table below shows the viewmodel settings that are used by s1mple. You can copy and paste this cfg file to your game:

viewmodel_fov 68
viewmodel_offset_x 2.5
viewmodel_offset_y 0
viewmodel_offset_z -1.5
cl_viewmodel_shift_left_amt 1.5
cl_viewmodel_shift_right_amt 0.75
viewmodel_recoil 0
cl_righthand 1

The table below shows the viewmodel settings that are used by NiKo. You can copy and paste this cfg file to your game:

viewmodel_fov 65
viewmodel_offset_x 2
viewmodel_offset_y 1.5
viewmodel_offset_z -1
cl_viewmodel_shift_left_amt 1.5
cl_viewmodel_shift_right_amt 0.75
viewmodel_recoil 0
cl_righthand 1

It is normal for players to have a hard time adjusting their viewmodel settings using a set of commands. So, community member crashz has created a very useful workshop map, which is called “crashz’ Viewmodel Generator.”

On this map, there are lots of interactive buttons that you can use in order to adjust your viewmodel easily. Consider downloading this map and also check out other cool maps such as this one in our article on workshop maps!
