The art of BHopping (Bunny Hopping) has been present in many FPS games and the roots of this virtual athleticism can be found in Quake and Half-Life. Even though “BHopping” was something that the developers of Counter-Strike did not want to see happening on a regular basis in the game, mainly due to the fact that CS was intended to be a slower-paced tactical FPS game rather than a fast-paced Arena Shooter, people still insist on doing it and find ways to even after the first “nerf” of BHop all the way back in Counter-Strike 1.4 (How time flies?). Here are the essentials for bunny hopping in CS:GO, including the commands list, so you can try to be like the legendary “zBlock.”
How to Do Bunny Hopping in CS:GO
First, the Developer Console must be enabled on your CS:GO client. See How to Open Console in CS:GO for help on this matter.
Now, load up the map you want, and kick bots (
/bot_kick in the console at the start). Then, use the full list of BHop commands:
- sv_cheats 1;
- sv_accelerate_use_weapon_speed 0;
- sv_airaccelerate 12
- sv_autobunnyhopping 1;
- sv_enablebunnyhopping 1;
- sv_maxvelocity 3500;
- sv_staminajumpcost 0;
- sv_staminalandcost 0;
- sv_staminamax 0;
- sv_staminarecoveryrate 0;
You can copy/paste them from here for ease of access. And there you have it! Now you’ll be a BHop pro in no time at all. You just need to practice a lot. I recommend that you map your jump to the mouse wheel for this purpose. You can either do that from the options or by typing in the following commands:
- bind mwheelup +jump
- bind mwheeldown +jump
This binds both scroll wheel movements to the jump command. Bunny hopping is somewhat like skiing in CS:GO; you need to find a good rhythm and master the movement of strafing while jumping to get some additional speed boost. For example, you would alternate between holding W and D and moving your mouse to the right and holding W and A and moving the mouse to the left, while in the air.
How to Enable Developer Console in CS:GO
The developer console is a pretty important part of CS:GO and allows you to do a number of cool things. It isn’t enabled by default for safety reasons, so you’ll need to do a few quick and easy steps to get it up and running. Here are the steps needed to activate the developer console in CS:GO:
- Go to the main menu.
- Find the “Settings” cog.
- Go to “Game Settings.”
- Toggle the “Enable Developer Console” option.
- Choose “Apply.”
When you’re in game, all you’ll need to do is hit the (~) tilde key to open the console. You can also change this key under the “Keyboard and Mouse” settings as well. And that’s all there is to it. That’s how you enable and open the developer console.
