To verify, what I just stated, you can open online steaming platforms like Twitch & YouTube. There you’ll find hundreds of streamers playing & streaming these games.

However, instead of addressing these games, here, I’m writing a post on the game that contributed to starting this trend of FPS gaming.

Can you guess it?

Well, if you guessed it to be Counterstrike: Global Offensive then you’re 100% accurate. You won’t believe when I most of these PUBG, call of duty has come from this multiplayer first-person shooter game CSGO.

If you still play this game, then this post is for you as you’ll get some unique insights into the game that’ll help you in making overall progress in CSGO. So, let’s proceed:

Counterstrike: Global Offensive (CSGO)

I know most of you might already know about this game but what about those who’re new to FPS gaming & don’t have any idea about CSGO.

Well, for them I’ll begin explaining about CSGO. Well, it’s a game where two teams of the terrorists & counter-terrorists compete against each other.

Furthermore, both the teams are assigned a task to eliminate their counterparts while completing some objective at the same time.

Is that it?

No…No…No…there’s more to it. The terrorists have to plant a bomb or defend the hostages whereas if it comes to the anti-terrorists, they have to either defuse the bomb or rescue the hostages from the terrorists.

For this, you can use the weapons provided to you. You can start playing this game by entering into dedicated servers or creating your own custom server.

How to Get a Rank in CSGO

CSGO Ranks Up
CSGO Ranks Up

At the beginning of the game, you won’t have any rank. That’s obvious, right?

Once you start playing this game, you’ll think of it as yet another game where you’ve to run & shoot at your opponents.

But that’s where you’ll be wrong. CSGO is not that simple that it looks initially. As a matter of fact, this FPS shooter game gets more complicated as you keep on playing this game.

So, if you’re a beginner in CSGO, I would recommend you to learn some of its basics, shooting mechanics, maps, & the functioning of available weapons.

That’s not it. You still have to learn a lot of other things, but you can do that in your process of playing this game.

Note – If you’re thinking of all this as a waste of time then let me warn you. You might spoil your gameplay experience of CSGO video games.

Now, that you’re aware of all the basics of CSGO, you’re all set to get your first rank. Are you ready for this?

Ok. So, let’s just begin with the step-by-step plan of getting your first ever CSGO ranks:

  1. Initially, you must play with bots to learn the game basics & earn the CSGO ranks.
  2. Except for CSGO Competitive, try to play different gaming modes of CSGO. Wondering why? Well, by doing so, you will get a much-needed gameplay experience without affecting your rank.
  3. In the beginning, use every available weapon. This way you’ll find which kind of weapons suit your style of gameplay. It can be either sniper or automatic rifles.
  4. Furthermore, don’t get confused by playing CSGO in all the way. If you try to play this game on every other map, you’ll do nothing but ruin your own gameplay. However, if you choose to play only in 1-2 maps, you’ll learn everything about them easily. You can visit some of the most popular locations in this CSGO Maps to win every game you play.
  5. Without proper training, you can’t play this game that much. So, I recommend you download the CSGO training map. You can use it to do as much practice you want before entering a competition map.
  6. Now, that you have done your homework, reach the 2nd experience level on your account. By doing so, you’ll be able to play competitive matches.
  7. Get your 1st ever CSGO rank by completing 10 competitive matches.
  8. That’s just the start. Play more competitive matches & develop your shooting skills in CSGO to increase your CSGO ranks.

Smart Tip – You can win matches in this game with just your skills. However, still you’ll need some assistance, & for this, you can use CSGO launch options. Use it until the game becomes super comfortable for you.

Difference between CSGO Ranks & CSGO Experience

Feeling confused between CSGO Ranks & CSGO Experience?

Well, you’re not the only one. Even I faced the same problem initially. So, to clear your confusion, I’ll let you know the exact difference between ranks and experience levels in CSGO

CSGO Ranks

Similar to the rating system in Dota 2, your CSGO ranks indicate your in-game skills.

CSGO Experience level

CSGO Experience level indicates all your in-game efforts. Wanna know what types of effort? Well, the amount of time you’ve spent in the game & the way you achieved success by playing this game in different modes including competitive matchmaking.

Don’t get too much worried as your experience level does not have any influence on the gaming process. The best thing about the CSGO experience level is that you’ll get new surprises after reaching new levels in the game.



Well, as a surprise, you’ll get random drops. So, take part in multiple shootout action & earn as many experience points you want.
