Moreover, some players use their thumbs only, and some use more than three or four finger claw setups.  

Why Four Finger Claw layout is necessary in competitive mobile games

The players who use thumbs are those who may have just made an ID because even if a player has played more than 5 matches, he will definitely know the importance of shifting from thumbs to three or four finger claws set up. Four finger claw players are generally faster than those within thumb layout because four-finger claw players can open scope, can move, can fire, and can control the recoil at the same time whereas a player who uses only thumbs to play may end up being defeated in front of those who use four claw as they may move and fire or just open scope and fire and that could result in the slow movement. 

The slow movement in these kinds of games that provides so much freedom to everybody to customize controls can result in ‘defeats’ only. Therefore, a new player should sit for an hour or two and spend time customizing the controls’ layout. 

To help the player with thumbs layout, here is a guide and an example layout to customize controls’ layout.
