Best Grenade Spots For T Side
If you’re playing as the Terrorist side in Counter-Strike 2, you must know about the following six best grenade spots in Dust 2.
Xbox Via T Spawn
You will notice many professional players throw smokes from Xbox during high-level CS2 matches. This is a highly advantageous place for the T side because you can completely block CT’s vision with your smoke. However, note that you need to have proper jump-throw execution with your grenade for this to be effective.
Go back to Xbox in T spawn. Now, stand beside the railing that’s protruding out of the structure. Set your aim in front of you, where you can see the smoke rising from behind a building. Aim toward the left side of the smoke, right at the corner of the building, and then do a jumping throw.
Xbox Via CT Spawn
The best course of action you can take here is to block off one side of the A players. Navigating through the small door already places you at a disadvantage, but deploying this smoke will provide you with a slight advantage while also providing support to your team.
Stand right behind Xbox and take your aim towards the left wall. Now, do a normal throw. You should also throw a flash in case someone is waiting further outside or towards the left side.
A Site Long
If you want to be competitive in CS2, the A Site Long smoke spot is a must-learn as a T. This smoke will block the CT’s vision to the only possible entry they can take towards Long. Now, with CS2, you will only require a single smoke to block the entire entry point.
Go to the Taxi area and climb up the boxes you see beside the Taxi. Take your aim right above the palm tree in front of you and perform a jump throw.
A Site Long 2
Alternatively, if you have already gotten control of Long, you can use this spot to throw your smoke. This will completely block off the CT Spawn area.
Get to the corner and take your aim towards the antenna that you can see in front of you. Now, slightly move your crosshair toward the left side of the antenna. Once your aim is set, perform a running throw.
A Site Short
This smoke will allow you to enter A site from Cat much more easily. It achieves this by blocking CT’s vision toward the Bridge and Stairs. Not only that, you can stand on top of a nearby box to look above the smoke.
Get to the stairs and aim towards the right side of the ridge. After your aim is set, just do a normal throw.
B Site Window & Door Smoke
The Window and Door smokes will put the B players at a massive disadvantage. You will be able to block out all of their vision with just two smokes. Not only that, you can accomplish this from a safe distance.
First, to smoke the door, go outside the tunnels and head to the right corner. Now, aim slightly below the top of the wall and do a jumping throw.For the window, go backward until you can see the wooden plank on the floor. Stand towards its left side and aim for the upper gap of the structure, as shown in the image below. Now, do a jumping throw.
Best Grenade Spots For CT Side
The CT side is also not lacking when it comes to the best CS2 grenade and smoke spots in the Dust 2 map. However, do note that, unlike the T side, CTs have to be very reactive and aware when throwing a grenade or smoke.
From CT Spawn Box
Use a smoke at CT Spawn when you notice the T’s not throwing any smoke from Xbox and just waiting for your team. This will obstruct the T’s vision, and they won’t be able to properly see the CT’s attempting to go to the B site. Aim at the box in the CT spawn area and do a normal throw.
CT B Site Tunnel Smoke & Molotov
You have to be technical and reactive when using this spot to smoke the tunnel. First, throw the smoke at the exit to obstruct the T’s view and to stop them from immediately coming inside the B site. If you notice any footsteps or see a flashbang, immediately throw your Molotov at the exit.
A Site Short Smoke & Grenade
While you are defending A short and your teammates defending A long are struggling for backup, you must use this smoke and grenade combo. It will completely catch the T’s off-guard.
Head over to the Boost area and set your aim to the top-right side of the building in front of you. Now, perform a standard throw. It will take the smoke a few seconds to go off. Until that happens, you must quickly run off to Long and throw a grenade at the wall. This will give you a second of clear vision and allow you to fire surprise shots at the T’s.There you have it. These are some of the best CS2 smoke and grenade spots in Dust 2. If you coordinate with your team well enough while using these grenade spots strategically, you will surely go up faster in the CS2 ranks.
