How to practice your aim in CS2 - Aim Botz and alternatives
Topic: How to Practice Aim in CS2 - Aim Botz & more.
In any first-person shooter game, aim is one of the most important abilities that all players must master to achieve greatness. CS2 is no exception from that, and in the complex world of competitive Counter-Strike, with utility lineups, strategic positioning, and many more important skills, aim is the common denominator that separates the good from the great. In this short guide, we will be explaining how to practice aim in CS2 using workshop maps.
Step 1: Download Maps
There are several aim maps adapted for CS2, but we have selected the two most popular ones, which are used by professional players and casual gamers alike. The maps are called cs2_aim and Aim Botz(which you may recognize if you played CS:GO). These maps feature bots that you can shoot at to practice aiming with different weapons from varying distances.

Step 2: Place the Files in Your Steam Files
Copy the files, then navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\game\csgo\maps. You should find all official Valve maps already in this folder. Just paste the files into the folder and you are all set!
Step 3: Launch the Game
The next step is to simply launch CS2. If you are playing on cs2_aim, temporarily type -insecure in your launch options, found in the “General” section of your Counter-Strike 2 settings page. This won't affect your trust factor or get you VAC banned, it just temporarily prevents you from playing on official servers. At the moment, this is the only way to run the map. After you finish practicing your aim, be sure to remove -insecure from your launch options so you can play on official Valve servers.
Step 4: Enter the Commands to Navigate to the Map
Now that the maps are in your Steam files, all you have to do to play them is enter a simple command into your developer console. If you don’t have the developer console enabled, go to settings, and next to the “Enable Developer Console” button in the “Game” section of your settings menu, select “Yes.”
Now, just press ~ to open your developer console, and type one of these two commands into the console.

Step 5: Practice Your Aim!
Now that you are in the practice map, you can change different settings to practice shooting in different scenarios, from different distances, and with different weapons. Happy aiming!
