New CS2 Mirage Smokes You Must Know
Below, we have listed the necessary smoke spots that you should know on Mirage in CS2:
T Side Smoke Lineups
Below are the smoke lineups that you can use from the Terrorist side when you want to rush sites or take control of the Middle:
T Spawn to Catwalk Crossing Smoke
Stand next to the trash bin in T spawn and aim at the middle of the antenna that connects the left and right sides, as you can see in the picture. Press Left-Click to throw the smoke, and it will land on the Catwalk, blocking the enemy’s view in the Jungle Window.
T Spawn to Jungle Window Smoke
Stand in front of the trash bin in T spawn and aim at the middle of the white line. Before you throw the smoke, hold D and jump throw. The smoke grenade will land directly in the middle of the Jungle Window.
It will look like there are gaps, but the volumetric effect of the smoke will cover both sides if you perform the smoke correctly.
High-Mid to Connector Smoke
Stand in between the right box and cartwheel and aim at the tip of the antenna, as shown in the picture. Press Left-Click to throw the smoke. It will land on a small ledge on top of the connector and smoke the entrance to the connector.
T Spawn to A Site CT Smoke
Stand next to the start of the fence in T Spawn and aim towards the right end of the wood sticking out of the wall. When in place, jump and throw the smoke grenade for it to land next to the box and block view from CT.
T Spawn to A Site Stairs Smoke
Go and stand in the middle of the wall, as seen in the picture. Place your crosshair in the middle gap between the left wall and the wooden structure on the right. Throw the smoke using the left-mouse button, and it will land on top of the stairs.
T Roof to A Site Jungle Crossing Smoke
Place yourself in front of the middle pillar and aim to the left of the ridge, as shown in the picture. Throw the smoke using the left-mouse button. It will land next to the stairs.
Back Alley to B Site Window
For this smoke, place yourself in the corner of the wall next to the TV Room and aim at the corner line right under the top of the tower. Jump-throw the smoke grenade for it to land near the window.
Back Alley to B Site Door
From the same position, aim at the middle of the most-right window of the tower and perform a jump throw. The smoke grenade will land in front of the door.
Back Alley to B Short
Again, from the same position, aim at the leftmost edge of the top of the tower. Throw the smoke using the left mouse button. It will land on short and prevent the enemy from picking you off from apartments as you rush the site.
CT Side Smoke Spots
Below are some smokes you can use when playing Counter-Terrorist. These smokes will help you create one-ways or stop the enemies from rushing sites.
CT Spawn to Under Window One-Way Smoke
While running, keep your crosshair in the middle of the wall, as shown in the picture, and perform a jump-throw before you reach the pot on the left. The smoke will land under the Jungle Window. Go ahead, jump on the platform under the window, and crouch down. The enemies will be unable to spot you from the top of the middle.
Underpass One-Way Smoke
Get yourself stuck in the wall popping out in the Underpass and aim at the fifth stair from below. Right-click to throw the smoke and create a one-way for you to peek High-Mid from the Underpass without getting noticed.
CT Site to A Main Smoke
Go to the structure at the start of the CT Spawn and stand next to the spot shown in the picture. Aim your crosshair at the bottom of the right ridge on the wall and move it slightly to the left, such that it is in the same position as you can see in the picture. Throw the smoke using the left-mouse button. It will block the entrance to A site from Main and prevent enemies from rushing the site.
