All CS2 players are raving about the latest movement trick, “Michael Jackson peek.” But what does it even mean?

When it comes to movement tactics, CS2 players are a cut above the rest. From the very first iteration of the game, players have been discovering new ways to take the enemy by surprise. From the infamous Xantares to Ferrari peek, players have come up with all sorts of tactics to add some spice to the game. 

CS2 is a few weeks old, and a new trick, albeit a bug, has already made its way. Michael Jackson peek doesn’t give you an edge, but it’s hilarious. 

This unique bug enables a player model to shoot at a diagonal angle. In CS2, you can either move right or left, but this bug allows you to bend towards the other side while staying in the same spot, quite similar to Michael Jackson’s infamous “Silent Criminal” dance move.

How to do Michael Jackson peek in CS2

Michael Jackson peek is a bug that can be replicated by those who own an analog keyboard or with a cfg. 

According to players, they can perform the bug by using analog keyboard, which allows greater movement control in video games. By pressing the keys halfway, players can replicate the Michael Jackson peek. But not everyone owns an analog keyboard, so a player has created a config for the peek. 

Those who wish to execute the Michael Jackson peek may add the commands into their config and then load up the game. However, it’s worth noting that this is dangerously close to purposefully performing an exploit. Valve may take action against players who are deliberately adding cfg that triggers a bug in the game. 

In any case, it’s a hilarious movement trick that seems harmless as it doesn’t provide an advantage.
