Mousewheel jump bind

  • Key: Mouse scroll down
  • Command: bind mwheeldown +jump

It might take a bit of getting used to but jumping with the scroll wheel has a lot of advantages. For one, it frees up your thumb to use grenades or drop weapons, but it also makes it a lot easier to ‘bunny hop’.

The ‘bunny hop’ has become an essential skill in higher skill groups, but it’s nearly impossible to pull off without the jump bound to the mouse wheel.

Grenade binds

  • Key: Spacebar, V, C, 4
  • Command: bind space "use weapon_flashbang";bind v "use weapon_smokegrenade";bind c "use weapon_hegrenade";bind 4 "use weapon_molotov;use weapon_incgrenade"

This bind will let you instantly switch to the grenade you need without needing to waste precious time flipping through the rest of your utility.

Our recommended bind configuration is set up for comfort and requires that you’re using the mouse wheel jump bind as well to free up the space bar.

Instant bomb kit drop bind

  • Key: B
  • Command: bind b "use weapon_knife; use weapon_c4; drop; slot1"

This is one of the simplest yet biggest quality-of-life improvements you can get. Being able to instantly drop the bomb at the press of a button makes it so much easier to pass the pack on to a teammate while you’re on the move or holding an angle.

This single bind will do everything for you, leaving you free to focus on the round instead.

Grenade lineup crosshair bind

  • Key: X
  • Command: bind "X" "toggle cl_crosshairsize ? 5000"

If you’re sporting a smaller crosshair, lining up a perfect smoke might not be the easiest thing in the world. Luckily, with this keybind you’ll be able to stretch your crosshair quickly and effectively in all 4 directions to guide your aim.

To use this bind, you’ll first need to know your crosshair size. Use command cl_crosshairsize to find your size and paste it into the command instead of ‘?’.

Pressing X will enable the bind. Pressing it again disables it.

Switch hands bind

  • Key: L
  • Command: bind l "toggle cl_righthand 0 1"

While this bind primarily comes down to preference, it does improve visibility when you need to watch two angles and one of them is obstructed by your weapon.

Some left-handed players, and even right-handed players, also feel like they aim better with their weapons switched.

Push to talk bind

  • Key: Mouse back button / Programmable button 4
  • Command: bind mouse4 +voicerecord

If you like to play pickup games, you’ll be familiar with using push to talk. You might also be aware of the struggle to reach the default key when you’re in the middle of an intense round.

To ensure your callouts won’t go unheard, rebind your push to talk button to one of your programmable buttons on the side of your mouse.
