Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional players are redefining how the oldest map Mirage is played with these new one-way setups.
Mirage is one of the oldest and most played CSGO maps. Both casual and competitive players know every corner of the location like the back of their hands. Still, pro players keep finding fresh ways to work this location. These newly discovered one-way smokes on Mirage’s B site will allow you to win rounds on the Counter-terrorists side.
Mirage’s B site is comparatively easier to play as CTs, but Terrorists can always execute a hard push and outplay you. One of the best ways to tackle aggressive Ts is to hold close angles and outsmart them. This one-way smoke highlighted by team BIG’s Tizian “tiziaN” Feldbusch can get you early kills and pause pushes.
From this aperture, you can view the Ts pushing in and get crucial first kills. Paired with a teammates’ flash or incendiary, B site take can be denied altogether.
The second lineup is for the market window, a common spot CTs hold to take down enemies in apps. However, players often fail to get kills from this angle as it’s an expected spot, and Ts naturally pre-aim it. This smoke will let you hold angle patiently and drive enemies into your crosshair.
For this smoke, crouch on the left side of the market door and aim in the middle of the boxes. Press left click to throw the smoke. Now, this lineup isn’t necessarily a one-way, but G2 Esports’ Nikola “NiKo” Kovac uses it to throw off enemies and take them down when they’re not looking.
Enemies don’t have enough time to pause in apps and observe the site, so this smoke works like a one-way to shoot them down when they’re running.
Both of these smokes can be game-changing when paired with apt firepower and flashes. Ts won’t be able to take site control when CTs are hiding behind tactical grenades, ready to eliminate blind enemies.
