Prosettings.net has revealed the most popular gear that CS:GO pros use, including everything from monitors to mousepads.
With new PC peripherals coming out on a near daily basis, it can be hard to figure out what are the best products to use at any given time.
Prosettings.net eases that burden by researching the setups and settings that the professionals use in order to give buyers an idea of what products are frequently used.
The site’s latest infographic details the most used monitors, mice, mousepads, keyboards, and headsets for CS:GO pro players.
“BenQ Zowie monitors are used by 85% of CS:GO pros compared to just 58% one year ago,” Prosettings.net provided as a fun fact on the infographic.
In addition to dominating the monitor market, Zowie also snagged the most used mouse and mousepad, making it one of the clear leaders in the PC peripheral space.
Zowie might have been the frontrunner in terms of monitors and mice, but HyperX was the king when it came to keyboards and headsets.
While these products might be the ones most frequently used by CS:GO pros, all peripheral use ultimately comes down to personal preference. Using any of these products won’t guarantee professional-level results since each player has specific needs that won’t be identical to others.
