Ways to improve at Gold Nova III

Learn a few basic grenade throws.
Learn some basic grenades (especially smokes and flashbangs) to help you execute your favorite strategies. Watching tournaments (even the smaller ones) can help you a lot with that.
Take care of your in-game settings.
Mouse settings (DPI and sensitivity), screen resolution, in-game sounds, crosshair; set everything to make your game as comfortable as possible for you. We recommend taking inspiration from the settings of players you like or who have a similar setup to yours.
Practice your aim several times a week.
