Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is part of a franchise that's been around for a long time, which is why it might be surprising to some that it's the second game that's received flick game support. Jibbs Smart, the creator of flick stick, has discovered that flick stick has been natively implemented into CS:GO, making it the second live game where this has occurred.

While you won't have to configure flick stick in-game at all, you do have to set it to your right thumbstick, which you'll need to do by going to Edit Button Bindings in Steam's controller menu:

This is where you'll need to go to set up flick stick.

What is flick stick? Well, flick stick uses technology found in modern controllers to give players a better and more competitive overall experience. It does this by not allowing players to look up and giving players the option to turn on a dime like you can with a controller. So, if you have someone on your six, you can 'flick' your controller in that direction and immediately begin turning your opponent into paste.

What if you have someone that's on a balcony above you? Well, that's what the gyro functionality is for. You'll physically move your controller up and down while flicking your right thumbstick to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women. You might think that's a little extreme, but if it's good enough for Conan it's good enough for me.
