If you thought the infamous Olofboost on Overpass was deadly, this new discovered 5-player boost on Inferno will blow your mind. 

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is one of the oldest and practiced games. But players continue to find new and exciting strategies. These players prove that the oldest FPS still has much to offer. The same few maps can be played in hundred different ways, keeping the game fresh. 

This newly discovered 5-player boost on Inferno is proof of that. A CSGO player has shared a clip demonstrating it, flawlessly pulling off the seemingly impossible. 

Tackling the mid area on Inferno is a tall order. If you don’t excel at movement, the CTs may reach the AWP choke first. Allowing CTs mid control heavily impacts banana takes, slowing down the round pace for the T side. It’s wiser to take down the CT AWPer or at least push them back in order to win the round smoothly. But that can be tricky. 

This 5-player boost can help take down the AWPer, and not just once. It’s a cheeky angle that’s barely visible from the CT end, making it replicable throughout the game. Enemies would never expect five Ts boosting on top of the hut to eliminate the AWPer. However, there are some downsides to it. 

The entire team must participate in executing this setup. All five players would be required to give up their roles and boost the AWPer, which isn’t ideal. Secondly, the boost can be difficult to execute. You may end up wasting a lot of time trying to boost. But it’s still viable and may pay off with an extra round win.

The setup works best in a full lobby of teammates with voice communications, as it requires both communication and coordination. It’s recommended to whip the boost out in matchmaking only if you’ve lost a lot of rounds and need to change something up. The boost may malfunction on 128-tick servers, so avoid trying to boost this way if you’re playing on FACEIT.

The Olofboost is a famous in-game boost that Valve eventually banned from professional play. It was first used by Olofmeister while playing for Fnatic at a CSGO Major against top rival LDLC.

Olofmeister stood on invisible pixels to get an advantageous view on Overpass, allowing him to pick off unsuspecting opposing players from LDLC. Olofmeister showed how deadly and game-breaking this boost was, making it an essential highlight in pro CSGO history.
