Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players have long argued over which colors are best and worst in the game's popular matchmaking. Now we finally have a definitive answer.

CSGO allows players to customize almost every part of their experience within the first-person shooter game. After introducing weapon skins to the gaming world with its Arms Deal update, CSGO took the next step with agent skins in Operation Shattered Web. Players can change their sights, customize their HUDs, and even choose the music that plays during the most intense action in the game. But despite all its customization, CSGO only has five colors for players to choose from to represent them to other players.

Of the five colors, the players who chose purple have always made fun of them. In matchmaking, it's always the purple's fault. But an analysis of more than 20,000 CSGO matches says purple isn't even close to the worst color.

The deadliest CSGO players choose purple as their team color

In CSGO's competitive mode, players can choose from blue, orange, green, yellow, and purple as colors. Displayed on the CSGO minimap and above players' heads, it allows teammates to quickly say a color to convey important information rather than trying to say a player's custom nickname. And with CSGO player names ranging from "Tom" to "l337AK-tt56z", it's a great idea.

But with the limited colors available, the CSGO community has created some fun stereotypes for gamers choosing a certain color. Yellow always forget the bomb in spawning. Blue is a solid Smurf or Silver IV with 2,000 hours of playtime. Green is a support player, always ready to drop weapons for his teammates. CSGO fans have had fun with these over the years, but everyone agrees on one thing - purple is the worst. It is now an official CSGO meme, and it was born from the adventures of popular YouTuber SovietWomble in the CSGO matchmaking.

Except it turns out that purple players are better than everyone else.

In a fun experiment, stat tracking service Leetify analyzed more than 20,000 CSGO matches and calculated the win rates for all players using the game's five colors. What they found was not only surprising, it has the potential to redefine CSGO's goofy color system forever. Rather than being the worst in CSGO, players who chose purple score higher than any other color. At 1.03, purple led both blue and yellow on average in games monitored by Leetify, destroying everything players thought they knew about color.

He simply shows that stereotypes are not always true. That said, yellow probably leaves the bomb spawning more often.

How do you change the color of your player in CSGO?

As soon as players join or create a CSGO lobby, they can change their player's color by clicking on their profile picture in the upper right corner and selecting the color they want by clicking on the color wheel. Players can choose from blue, orange, purple, green, or yellow.

How can players change the color of the CSGO HUD?

CSGO players used to have to go to the CSGO console to change their HUD color, but Valve recently added a useful menu in CSGO settings. The menu is found by clicking on the CSGO setting wheel, scrolling down to "HUD" and choosing one of several different options to change the entire HUD color.
