To explain why do You need gaming gear, and why actually it is imperative for Your progress as a gamer that allows You to reach Your full potential (especially in CS:GO), i’ll use simple analogy.
Lets say, hypothetically, that You are a car racer. You have all the possible skill that You could have as a car racer, but You have bad, worn tires on Your car. Still, You go and compete with other car racers that actually have everything good on their cars. By having bad tires You don’t have full control of Your car, thereby You are not using Your full potential as a car racer. Eventually You’ll lose because of that.
Same goes to e-sport and CS:GO where You compete with other players. If You don’t have decent gaming gear, You will be behind other players very often, even if You are better skillwise than them.
By not having a good, quality mouse with fast response time that can read Your movement, You are losing Your aiming potential, thereby You are losing duels which You should have won, and eventually losing games. And You might be thinking – “I’m not good enough, i’m bad at this game”. That’s not necessarily true, in fact, maybe You have potential to be very good player, but Your gear is holding You down.

Same goes to headphones, which are helping You to hear more movements on the map, and we all know that sound is as important aspect in this game as your aiming skills. You might do a number of kills and win many rounds thankfully to Your sound, and if You know how to use it to Your advantage. Sound is very often gamechanging. That’s why You need good headphones that allows You to have advantage over Your opponents and positionally outplay them.
Some of the best headsets for CS:GO are:

What about your keyboard? To be fair, unlike the mouse and the headsets, you could sneak through and play competitive CS:GO with casual membrane-keyboard, but again, you would be in disadvantage. Every movement in this game is obviously done by your keyboard, and if it doesn’t respond well, if you couldn’t properly shoulder/jiggle-peak, than you will have hard time to entry-frag, peak angles etc. So, if you want to be complete CS:GO player, you should consider upgrading your membrane-keyboard to a mechanical one.
Some of the best, and most used keyboards by CS:GO pro-players are:
|SteelSeries 6Gv2||CM Storm |
|Razer Green |
|Cherry MX Red switches||Cherry MX Red/Brown/|
|Cherry MX Red
