What’s the best way to train your FPS aim? KovaaK is the answer

Gamers everywhere are always trying to improve their aim. This leads to one big question: What is the absolute best way to improve your aim in first-person shooters?

This is a difficult question to answer given the prevalence of aim-training options available. As FPS games such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Apex Legends, and others have grown more popular, so too have the tools meant to help players improve their aim. But is there really one too that stands out above the rest? We believe so, and its name is KovaaK.

KovaaK 2.0 is an aim training tool developed by The Meta. It covers a broad variety of games and features literally thousands of scenarios custom-made to work on and improve a player’s aim according to each game and player’s needs. There’s nothing else quite like it on the market, and that means players who take advantage of it stand to reap major rewards versus those who don’t.

The rise of aim trainers has been plain to see. The earliest roots of aim training came in the form of custom maps for games like Counter-Strike and Quake. These simple maps were made by independent designers who wanted to help fellow players to better practice their in-game skills. Garrett “KovaaK” Krutilla, a former Quake pro and the creator of KovaaK 2.0, once invested time into teaching others how to improve their game in Quake.

But with more games and more players has come more development and innovation in aim training. Simple custom maps gave way to more elaborate designs that could be customized to match a player’s preferences. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in particular is rife with options for aim training thanks to the ease and accessibility of Steam’s workshop, a hub for sharing customized in-game content including aim training maps.

The prevalence of aim training tools has led to a constant ramping up in both quality and complexity. This might seem like a good thing for interested players, and it is, but it also creates a new problem: With so many capable aim training tools available, how does one choose the best option?

KovaaK 2.0 proves to be the best aim training tool today

KovaaK 2.0 cuts right through that question with its depth, flexibility, and range. More than just an aim training tool represented in an existing game, KovaaK is its own software that is built from the ground up to best help players in improving their aiming skills.

KovaaK explained what it is about his work that enables players to improve with such rapidity and consistency.

“The hardest part about improving mechanics in most games is that there is so much downtime between fights,” KovaaK said. “This got me thinking about the best way to provide players with easily grindable content that mimics certain in-game situations, along with creating systems that could emulate weapons and characters from a wide variety of games.”

KovaaK 2.0 features so many different options across so many games, and has already become so popular, that it has spawned its own competitions. That speaks to the quality of KovaaK’s customizable training methods covering CSGO, Valorant, Overwatch, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, Rainbow Six Siege, Fortnite, and more. It boasts over 12,000 aim-training scenarios in total. It is, in short, the absolute answer for players looking to better their aim and their game.
