CSGO feels like it has been around for ages, and there are no signs that it’s going to go anywhere anytime soon. Unfortunately, CSGO’s age also means there are a plethora of players who have tried their hands at becoming the next big CSGO streamer, which can make it a pretty daunting feat to figure out exactly who is worth watching.

My list of top CSGO streamers compiles only the best of the best in terms of skill, as well as entertainment. Whether you’re looking to improve your game or just have a good time, these CSGO streamers will have you covered!

1. s1mple

As one of the most well-known CSGO players in the world, s1mple is a Ukrainian professional CSGO player who plays for the team Natus Vincere. He is commonly thought of as the best CSGO player in the world, boasting some of the best skills that have ever been observed in the scene. If you want to be the best, then you have to learn from the best, and that’s exactly what you can do by watching s1mple stream on Twitch.

He is clearly hard on himself when he streams and strives to perform in every match he plays, no matter if it’s an official tournament or not. If there’s one thing s1mple knows how to do, it’s improved his gameplay. He’s not afraid to point out his own mistakes while live on stream so that he, and others, have a chance to learn from them and refine themselves.

2. summit1g

Another gifted CSGO player, summit1g, popularly known in the scene as just “Summit,” tried his hand at the professional CSGO circuit. But after a humiliating fail in a DreamHack tournament where he accidentally forced the match into overtime, leading to his team’s eventual loss, summit1g decided to part ways with Splyce and focus more on his streaming career.

Luckily, it has worked out fantastically for him. Despite the unfortunate mishap, he is still regarded as one of the greatest CSGO players in the world and continues to prove so on his stream, where he dominates the competition.

3. Shroud

This really wouldn’t be a CSGO streamer list without the human aimbot himself, Shroud. Shroud is one of the most well-known CSGO players in the world and is renowned for his almost inhuman ability to snap exactly to where he wants to be shooting at any given point. His unparalleled game-sense and aiming ability are truly worth marveling. If you’re looking to watch a streamer who is an absolute king at game mechanics, then Shroud is your guy.

4. AdreN

AdreN is known for going out of his way to provide his viewers with only the best tips and tricks to improve their gameplay. In fact, his stream could probably be considered one of the most educational CSGO streams out there. Currently acting as the coach for Team Liquid’s CSGO team could be why, as he is experienced in monitoring the battlefield and player performance.

At the end of the day, he knows what needs to get done so more matches can be won, and that information is invaluably passed on during his streams. If you’re truly trying to learn how the pros think and react in competitive situations, AdreN is your streamer!

5. ScreaM

Out of all else on this list, ScreaM probably takes his streaming career the most seriously. He’s a man of few words, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to be gained by watching him. Watching his stream helps players learn the importance of controlling reflexes and remaining calm in the grimmest of situations.

He is currently an inactive member of Team GamerLegion, which just means he has more time on his hands to stream and show everyone what it means to be calm, cool, and collected.

6. Ceh9

Ceh9 was one of the players responsible for Natus Vincere’s rise to fame in the CSGO scene, so it’s safe to say he has a fair share of knowledge and experience under his belt. Unfortunately, if you don’t speak Russian, you’re not going to pick up on too much that he says, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still opportunities for you to learn from his stream.

If you’re trying to become your team’s lurker or just improve your peeking skills so that you aren’t getting mowed down at every corridor, Ceh9’s stream would be an excellent choice to watch.

7. PashaBiceps

With a name like PashaBiceps, how could you not take notice? PashaBiceps is a Polish CSGO player who plays for Virtus.pro and was also part of the Golden Five, a group of Polish players who were unrivaled in terms of skill in Counter-Strike 1.6 from 2006 to 2008.

He’s been in the Counter-Strike scene as long as most people can remember, and not only is he skilled, but he has a fantastic personality. On stream, he is always cracking jokes to keep the mood light while still managing to display his high level of skill. He is one of a kind in the CSGO streaming scene and is a must-see for anyone who’s unsure of exactly what kind of streamer they’re looking to watch.

8. m0E

What PashaBiceps is to Poland, m0E is to North America. Typically, in his streams, m0E, popularly pronounced as “Moe,” is a bit more focused on entertaining and less on displaying his skill, despite being regarded as a fantastic CSGO player nonetheless. It is clear he puts on a little bit of a persona when he streams, especially in his most rage-heavy streaming sessions, but in doing so, he keeps his stream entertaining and engaging.

When m0E isn’t interacting directly with his chat, you’ll be able to catch some fairly skilled plays, and you might even check-in at the right time for a giveaway. If sheer entertainment was the name of the game, m0E would be considered one of the best.

9. Steel

For those players who can see themselves striving to reach the peak of their game and trying to become a professional in the CSGO scene, Steel is your man. Unfortunately, having a rocky past, Steel is permanently banned from any Valve-associated competitive events and competitions due to being involved in a North American match-fixing scandal, but he still has a wealth of knowledge that is worth looking into.

He has such a deep understanding of every aspect of CSGO that it is often too cumbersome for new players to digest. However, if you’re a player looking to sharpen your edges and refine every aspect of your game that you can, then Steel is the kind of streamer you should look into.

10. n0thing

With a name that makes him seem like nothing at all, n0thing is anything but. N0thing’s stream is an educational powerhouse for CSGO enthusiasts for a multitude of reasons. With a strong career of professional play across multiple teams, n0thing uses his stream as a coaching opportunity for his viewers and gives great insight into competitive play. He frequently breaks down the moves he makes while he plays and the reasoning behind each one to not only help his viewers understand his thought process but also provide them with key lessons they can take away. Don’t miss your opportunity to learn from this legendary North American player!

CSGO streamers are a dime a dozen, and it can be pretty overwhelming trying to find the exact ones you want to watch.
