Like to play CS GO on the personal computer? Here are the default keyboard and mouse bindings for Counter Strike Global Offensive for you to remember.

When playing PC games, you have the choice of using your keyboard and mouse. The other option is to use a game controller.

Game controllers can be really useful if you are a console gamer and like the feel of your controller. But, as we’ll see, game controllers are only really useful if the set of keyboard and mouse actions are small number.

In games that offer just up, down, left, right movement and perhaps a shooting operation, that is only 5 actions you map to a game controller. But when you start to get into more than what the game controller can handle, you are better off using your keyboard and mouse.

In CSGO for example, there are over 40 different actions you can take with your keyboard and mouse. No way can you map every action to your game controller. I tried to use DS4 as the input mapper from my PS4 controller to CSGO. Then, realize this is just not going to cover all the bases.

So if you are going to play any PC game that have a lot of input actions, you are just going to have to bite the bullet and learn them. Its unfortunate, because the advantage of having game controllers is so that people don’t have to remember a ton of stuff. People like senior citizens, handicapped, even younger kids would rather use a console controller.

For competitive play though, there is just no way around it.

Logitech G13 Bindings for CSGO

If you got a Logitech G13 Gameboard, here are my settings for the G keys. You will use all three input devices – G13, mouse, and keyboard.

These settings will change and the table below will as well. Because browsers keep the old image settings in their cache, you will need to clear your browser cache to see the current settings in the image below.

I am assuming you are going to use your left hand on the G13. So, with that in mind, the location of the keys you press will always leave your middle finger on the G4 Forward and G11 Down key. That way, you won’t lose position and use it as the reference. I hope this all makes sense and I tried to really think long and hard about what are the most often used commands and relate them to your finger’s tendency. It will take a little getting used to it beats memorizing all the 40+ keys in the game. Mouse wise, you can cycle among the weapons using the mouse wheel and firing the primary and secondary weapons. The rest of the keys are not used often and you can take your hand off the Logitech to type.
