This Vertigo smoke may be the most powerful lineup in CS2


Vertigo has always been one of the more challenging maps in Counter-Strike 2, but learning a smoke or two can help players breeze through this two-story labyrinth.

In the recent update, Valve opened Vertigo’s A short in a way that it now connects with the CT base via elevator. This should make it easy for CTs to defend the pesky side that opens into the site, but it remains a preferred route for Ts breaking into A. However, this new Vertigo smoke can block out incoming enemies with ease. This wild lineup was discovered by a player named Alec053, who got tricked by a player on the enemy team.

It’s insanely genius and quite possibly one of the best lineups in CS2 across all maps. Here’s how to do it.

The perfect smoke for Vertigo A short

Players can either toss a molotov towards A short at the beginning of the round or try this genius Vertigo smoke lineup. Here’s how to do it.

Vertigo A short smoke lineup

  1. Run towards the A side and jump on top of the orange barrel.
  2. Place your crosshair on the line shown above on the top wall.
  3. Equip the smoke and release it. The smoke will hinge under an invisible spot on the ceiling’s edge.
  4. Sit on top of the barrel hidden behind the wall and scoot enough to the right that enemies in the alley are visible, but most of your body is hidden.
  5. Use this gap in the smoke to take out oblivious enemies.

At a higher level of play, you may be able to reuse this overpowered smoke once or twice before the enemy figures it out and pre-fires your seat. But, gap or not, you can use it as a regular smoke to block out this area and keep enemies at bay. This versatility makes it one of the most powerful smokes in CS2.
