Connector boost on Overpass can help lock the entire map

Overpass is littered with unusual boosts that look shady at first but are completely legal to use. 

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is known for its realistic and cutthroat gameplay, but only dedicated players are familiar with the dark side of CSGO. The game is littered with longstanding bugs and absurd mechanics. This new Overpass boost is the latest in the long list of exploit-like, powerful mechanics. 

Most recently, players are highlighting a viable but tricky connector boost on Overpass that may help control rotations on the entire map. It looks like a bug at first but it’s okay to use according to the unwritten rules of CSGO. 

How to use the Overpass boost

This latest bug-like boost is for the Overpass connector. Since this particular area is already hard to make out due to the dim light, this boost becomes incredibly powerful.

By holding this angle, both CTs and Ts can monitor rotations on the map, as the connector is a crucial area on Overpass. Low difficulty level to replicate this bug makes it a dangerous one, especially in low-rank MatchMaking. 

To recreate this, you only need the assistance of one teammate to cushion atop the pixel-like spot. But, in reality, it’s not the pixel that helps hover mid-air. Instead, a tube light on top of the door acts as the ledge to help hold the angle. Due to the presence of a solid object, this Overpass boost is entirely legal to use. 

At first glance, players assumed it was a glitched spot involving a pixel boost. But it’s a fair angle, letting players sit on an existing ledge. This has been confirmed in ESEA’s article, explaining what a pixel boost is. 

“This is not a pixel walk because the player is standing on the window ledge, even though it does not appear anything is directly below the player model at this angle,” ESEA said.

So, winning on Overpass will become easy if you know all these secret spots that look like bugs but are fair.
