Hi, I bought CS GO yesterday, and I suck at it. If anybody that is decent at it, can give me some tips. I would love to play the game but it angers me because I'm terrible at it. Anyone wanna help me?:)

Everyone starts off like this. When I first tried COD MP, I always finished last. These days I'm always near the top of the table. Just practice and you will improve. You also have chosen one of the most competitive FPS on the market. Most people that play CS are pretty good at it.

use headphones and listen for footsteps, try to quickly identify the "encounter" spots. That is the spots where the two teams will meet from their respective spawns. Just watch your teammates get into more defensive positions. Flash is extremely useful but don't use it predictably. A blind enemy is an easy kill. Follow good players, do not block them, stand a bit away from them so they can move back into cover. Watch what they do, back them up with cover fire. Chances are you might get a few kills or at least help them get kills. When there are few players or most of the players are dead, use walk. If the enemy can't hear you you gain a good chance of killing them by surprise. I would stick to a few weapons at start and get to learn their strengths rather than swapping around too much.

I'm pretty awful at Black Ops 2, i've been playing it for a few days and If I don't finish last i'm pretty low.

A few days doesn't make you better, it takes longer than that. I played COD4 for months before I started playing better.

Thanks, man!
