The passive playstyle

The passive playstyle involves staying in a specific position and defending that area. You develop your skills to quickly move your aim between common angles and timing your shots. For example, this could be the connector on Mirage, an area exposed to multiple angles. . Focus on pre-aim with great crosshair placement, control your counter-strafe movement and make 180-degree turnarounds to maintain the overview. Unfortunately, you cannot choose where you want to spawn when playing deathmatch.

Benefits of the passive playstyle

  • Building confidence in specific map areas
  • Pre-aiming and counter strafing
  • Timing when to peek and shoot
