Top 5 Aim Trainers for First-Person Shooters, Ranked

Let's explore which five aim trainers will help you shoot for the stars and climb any FPS game's competitive leaderboard.

Just like every first-person shooter (FPS) player's perfect mouse sensitivity is different, every player has different aim weaknesses to work on and aim goals they wish to accomplish. 

If you're looking to become the next Tenz or s1mple, it's important to find an aim routine that delivers results. Aim trainers can help structure your routine and track and analyze your progress. 

Let's dive into a list of the top five FPS aim trainers and their specific attributes so you can find the perfect aim solution for your particular needs!

4. Oblivity


Oblivity prides itself on helping players find their optimal sensitivity. Users begin by going through its Sensitivity Finder process, where they play through a few scenarios from their favorite game and fluctuate between different mouse sensitivities. After the Sensitivity Finder scenarios are complete, Oblivity will bless you with your own scientifically determined perfect sensitivity. 

While Oblivity's main draw is this sensitivity aspect, it still functions as a solid aim trainer. Its Smart Play feature automatically sends players through the best training scenarios for them based on their preferences. In addition, Oblivity offers sophisticated analyses including deviation from the ideal aim path, overshooting,  undershooting and even aiming smoothness. Players can also watch replays of their session to catch any mistakes the AI may have missed.

While it is less popular than the other options on this list, it is steadily growing a following for its visible quality. The game is still in early development, but already looks promising and can hold up against its paid alternatives.

6. Honorable Mention: osu!


You may be surprised to see the internet's favorite rhythm game on this list. While osu! is not a conventional aim trainer and won't improve your headshot precision, it is a useful warmup to strengthen general reflexes. 

osu! encourages fast reaction time, and running a few songs on your equivalent in-game sensitivity can help snap you out of autopilot before entering a match. It can be fun to shake up your aim routine if you're exhausted from grinding Gridshot on Aimlabs. 

Plus, music enthusiasts can find nearly every genre to train to including rap, anime OSTs, pop, indie rock and even hyperpop!

Aim takes time and patience to develop, but using an aim trainer you feel comfortable with speeds up the process. Taking the initiative to train is a huge step, whether simply clicking circles on osu! or powering through an hour-long Aimlabs routine.
