Mirage Stairs Smoke


The Mirage stairs smoke serves the crucial purpose of obstructing the line of sight for CT players positioned on the A bombsite stairs. By deploying the smoke, players on the attacking side can effectively block the vision of CTs, preventing them from spotting movements towards A site ramp and palace. This creates a strategic advantage for the attacking side, enabling them to execute A site strategies with reduced risk of detection and opposition from CTs holding positions on the stairs.

To execute the Mirage stairs smoke, players typically position themselves in spawn or near the A ramp. This particular smoke in the videoguide above demonstrates the easiest and best way to smoke stairs on Mirage without leaving any gaps. You need to jump while throwing the grenade but no bind is required!

Consistent Execution: Practice the lineup in offline or community servers to ensure consistent and accurate deployment of the stairs smoke during live matches. You can actually use this guide while playing by adding our STEAM guide to your favorites. And just like that you can use alt-tab to watch while in the game!

Communication: Effective communication within the attacking side is crucial. Teammates should be aware of the smoke execution to coordinate movements and capitalize on the strategic advantage it provides.

Adaptability: Be mindful of potential CT positions that may counter the stairs smoke. Adapt strategies accordingly and be prepared to adjust tactics based on opponent reactions.

In summary, the Mirage stairs smoke is a strategic utility play that, when executed correctly, disrupts the vision of CT players on the A bombsite stairs, creating opportunities for the attacking side to execute A site strategies with increased safety and effectiveness.
