Why use binds in cs:go?
Binds are great to improve you’re in-game experience and becoming more efficient in every action you take. This is because binds let you perform any number of actions by pressing just one key. Binds are often used to access and throw grenades, improve overview and visibility and adjust sounds and volume. Below is a list of useful binds that can better your in-game experience and boost your performance.
Get better visibility with a clear decals bind
It can be harder to see an enemy if he is standing in front of any effect on the wall as a result of the gameplay, this could be blood, graffiti, or bullet holes. Some people seem to be distracted by these visual effects. By clearing decals you clear out any unnecessary visual effects giving you in most cases better visibility and making it easier to see the enemy.
Copy the following to use E as clear decals bind:
bind e "r_cleardecals"
CHANGE OVERVIEW PERSPECTIVE WITH A RADAR ZOOM BIND
It can be a challenge to see on the radar exactly where your teammates are and at the same time have the full map overview. Using the bind below will let you quickly zoom in and out of your radar depending on the need in the situation.
In combat situations, you are more likely to get the advantage of a radar zoomed in because you can better see enemy positions and their movement direction. In default rounds where your team is spread out over the map, you are more likely to get the advantage of a radar zoomed out as you have a better overview tocollect more information.
Copy the following to use T as a radar zoom bind:
bind t "incrementvar cl_radar_scale 0 1 0.25"
Get silence in clutch moments with mute all voice
In clutch moments it can be useful to have total silence from your teammates that might come with unwanted information by talking too much.
This bind lets you switch between muting and unmuting all teammates in voice communication.
Copy the following to use 5 as a bind for muting/unmuting your teammates.
bindtoggle 5 "voice_enable 0"
Hear more by increasing the volume when walking
Often you walk around because you don’t want the enemy to hear you. In these situations, you are also trying to hear footsteps and other noises that can reveal information about your enemy.
This bind helps by increasing the in-game volume when you press shift for walking letting you hear the enemy easier.
Copy the following to use SHIFT as a bind for increasing volume when walking:
alias +incvol "incrementvar volume 0 2 0.5;+speed";alias -incvol "incrementvar volume 0 2 -0.5;-speed";bind SHIFT +incvol
Fast bomb drop bind
This bind lets you drop the bomb instantly without switching to the bomb first and then switching back to your primary weapon. This is more efficient so it is definitely worth setting up a drop bomb bind
Copy the following to use N as a bomb drop bind:
bind n "use weapon_knife; use weapon_c4; drop; slot1"
Improve grenade consistency with a jump throw bind
A jump throw bind lets you throw grenades with high consistency. The jump throw bind makes sure that the grenade gets released at exactly the same time each time you throw one.
Copy the following to use X as a jump throw bind:
alias "+jumpthrow" "+jump;-attack"; alias "-jumpthrow" "-jump"; bind x "+jumpthrow"
Jump higher with a crouch jump bind
Crouch jump is a technique used to jump higher than normal by crouching and jumping at the same time. This is done by pressing the crouch key at the exact moment you jump. For some, this technique can be challenging at particularly high positions.
To make things easier, copy the command below to use space as a crouch jump bind.
This bind let you jump and crouch by pressing a single key.
alias +duckjump "+jump; +duck"; alias -duckjump "-jump; -duck"; bind "SPACE" "+duckjump"
The run jump throw bind
In some cases, a run jump throw bind can be beneficial to use. You can throw smokes longer than with a normal jump throw and still being 100% consistent.
Copy the commands directly into your CS:GO console to make your own bind. This example bind the key “X” to the run jump throw bind.
bind "x" "+forwardjumpthrow"; alias "+forwardjumpthrow" "+forward;+jump;-attack"; alias "-forwardjumpthrow" "-jump;-forward"
Drop all grenades bind
With this bind you can quickly drop and share all your grenades with a teammate. Accidentally pressing the key and dropping all grenades could leave you exposed and without utility when you need it the most, so be careful.
Remember to bind “KEY” +dump after copying the following commands.
alias +dump "use weapon_knife; use weapon_smokegrenade; use weapon_molotov; use weapon_incgrenade; use weapon_flashbang; use weapon_hegrenade; drop"; alias -dump "use weapon_knife; use weapon_smokegrenade; use weapon_molotov; use weapon_incgrenade; use weapon_flashbang; use weapon_hegrenade; drop"
