Figuring out how to learn and perfect all of the CS:GO weapon spray patterns is incredibly tricky, but if you want to start winning more games and getting more kills then it is essential.

Unlike many other FPS games out there, weapons in CS:GO have quite extreme but repeatable recoil patterns, meaning that they are hard but incredibly rewarding to master. All of the best players can easily control an AK or M4 in the game, allowing them to come out on top in most gunfights and inevitably climb the ranks to Global Elite.

So, all you need to do is continue reading to see all of the CS:GO weapon spray patterns, as we've got everything you'll need to learn and perfect them below.

How to learn every weapon spray pattern in CS:GO

Unfortunately, every single weapon in CS:GO has a different spray pattern, meaning that you'll have to put in a lot of practice if you want to master them all. We very much recommend perfecting the main meta weapons like AK-47, M4A4, M4A1-S, and an SMG of choice, but learning as many as possible will help you become adaptable in all of your games.

One key thing to mention, which might seem obvious but is easy to miss, is that you're going to want to move your mouse in the opposite direction to the weapon's spray pattern in order to counteract it. For example, if a weapon's spray pattern goes up and the left, you'll want to drag your mouse down and then right.

So, here are all of the weapon spray patterns in CS:GO, so you can learn and perfect them all in-game:

Best way to learn & practice weapon spray patterns in CS:GO

While understanding the direction of each weapon's spray is important, knowing the timings is the key to perfecting it, and the best place to learn and practice is within the Recoil Master Spray Training workshop map.

This workshop map will not only give you the perfect setting to just practice your sprays, but will give you outlines, paths, and ranges where you can perfect each weapon's recoil timings. Hopping in here and practising before you start each day will definitely improve your recoil control, so we very much recommend it.

Furthermore, make sure to practice with different distances and angles, as you're always going to be taking fights in different scenarios when you're in an actual match, so it is best to be prepared for that too. Finally, while you might be able to learn a full spray, it is still best to keep your shots to short bursts, as you are always going to be more accurate when doing this.

So, that wraps up everything you need to know about the various CS:GO weapon spray patterns, letting you learn and perfect the recoil of each gun in the game.
