CS:GO have many guns in the game so each gun have their own spray pattern to learn

The Spray Pattern is where the bullets have ended up contradicting the crosshair position. This can vary depending on size of the gun and also style.

Spray Control is when you try to control the recoil of the spray by pulling the mouse downwards.

Bot Training is best for spray practice, where you can spray at multiple bots. This can be found through workshops on the Steam client.

The Recoil Master Spray Training workshop is one that is recommended by us and can be found through the Steam client’s workshop section.

This workshop map improves your shooting as it comes with intense patterns to learn from. Increasing the difficulty will also allow you to test your pattern/spray to it’s limit.

Deathmatch is also a recommended option to get you warmed up before your ranked games.
