MIRAGE

SMOKES & FLASHES FOR MIRAGE

CT SMOKE FROM T SPAWN

Mirage is one of the most played maps in CS:GO and knowing the smokes for this map is essential. The CT smoke thrown from T spawn is one of the most basic but also important nades of the game. It removes the visibility from any CT player holding A site and ramp from CT spawn or the ticket booth. The smoke leaves no gaps or holes for the CT players holding that area.

To throw this smoke you need a jump throw bind. 

JUNGLE SMOKE FROM T SPAWN

When executing A site as the terrorist team there are 3 basic smokes that you need to know. There’s the CT smoke as shown above and then there is the jungle smoke and stairs smoke. There are no jumps or movement need for this smoke and therefore it works on both 128 tick and 64 tick servers.

TOP MID SMOKE FROM T SPAWN

The top mid smoke from T-spawn is as easy to hit as the stairs smoke on A. The smoke is useful as it will block the CT’s view off the top mid area and can lead your team to cross out mid boxes.

WINDOW SMOKE FROM T SPAWN

If you can use this smoke in a server you will be the unsung hero of your match. This creates another layer to a mid takeover along with the top mid smoke. It smokes off the window area so the CTs can’t hold the most powerful position in mid. It can be a bit tricky to hit. You need to crouch slowly forward and use a jump throw bind at the right lineup. This smoke only works on 128tick servers.

WINDOW ONEWAY SMOKE
