Counter-Strike players are always looking for any advantage they can get on the enemy team. Landing a perfect smoke grenade could make all the difference in the round.
Jumping and then throwing the smoke, increases your range and gives you an extra second to take cover if you mess up. It’s a better option than standing still and slowly throwing the smoke.
Jump throwing isn’t as easy as it sounds though, which is why so few people do it. A simple bind can significantly increase your accuracy by making it significantly easier to line up your jump throw.
While in the past this process was a bit intimidating and difficult, we can now do it with ease and simplicity via console commands. Here’s how:
What Exactly is CS:GO Jump Throw Bind?
The jump throw bind, in the simplest of terms, is a script that allows you to perform multiple actions with one click.
The typical jump throw bind will allow you to jump and release your left mouse button at the same time, which means you can throw nades from any distance with perfect consistency.
The reason it’s so helpful is that it’s hard to do this manually — with two different actions pressed at the same time.
If you try to do it yourself, you’ll find that your throws are inconsistent and vary each time, but with a jump throw bind, they’ll be identical every single time.
Setting Up Jump Throw Bind in CS:GO
You can set up a CS: GO jump throw bind by creating a .cfg file in your CS: GO directory. This makes it so that every time you launch CS: GO, the config file is loaded with the game’s executable.
If you don’t make this config file, you’ll have to input the command in the console every time you play a match – and that’s certainly quite inconvenient.
To create a config file, open up Notepad and save the file Autoexec.cfg in your CS:GO Steam directory (or wherever you’ve set up your CS: GO files). This is usually located in –
“C:\Program Files (x86) \Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\CSGO\”
Then, after inputting the above text, you’ll need to select a key—we suggest using ALT (though any of the supplementary mouse buttons or something you can reach easily without too much movement would work well) and paste the following into your Autoexec.cfg file:
“alias “+jumpthrow” “+jump;-attack”; alias “-jumpthrow” “-jump”; bind alt +jumpthrow”
After choosing your key, make sure to save the file, and then check that it is in the right location.
Next, you need to head over to your Steam library, right-click on CS: GO, and navigate to the properties window. On the General tab, enter this text in the ‘launch options’ section.
You can now easily launch yourself into the combat zone with a single command. Simply use the jump throw bind to instantly throw your grenades across an opening or to provide cover for your rush-down attack.
Using Jump Throw Bind in Varying Situations
To perform a jump throw, just take out your smoke, hold down either your left or right mouse button, and then press the bind. It’s as easy as that! It’ll jump and release both mouse buttons for you.
- To throw a normal range jump throw, hold down your left mouse button and press the bind.
- To throw a short-range jump throw, hold down your right mouse button and press the bind.
- To throw a medium-range jump throw, hold down both mouse buttons and press the bind.
