Setting up Your Practice Server

Step 1: Launch CS2 and Access Practice Mode

The first step in your journey to becoming a grenade master is to open CS2 and navigate to the "Play" menu. From there, select "Practice" then select "Casual" mode. This mode provides you with a controlled environment for practicing your grenade throws.

Step 2: Choose Your Map

Once you're in the practice mode, you can pick the map you want to practice on. Select your preferred map from the list provided.

Step 3: Configure Your Server Options

On the left side of the screen, you'll find an "Options" section. Here, you should make specific configurations to optimize your practice session:

  • Grenade Camera: Enable this option to see where your grenades will land, helping you improve your accuracy.
  • Infinite Ammo: Activate this option to have an unlimited supply of grenades and bullets.
  • Infinite Warmup: Ensure that your round time never runs out, giving you ample time to practice.

Step 4: Start Your Server

With your server options configured, click the "Go" button at the bottom right corner of the screen. Your practice server will now load, and you're ready to get started.

Mastering the Art of Practice

Now that your server is up and running, let's delve into the essential commands to further setup your practice server in CS2.

Enabling Cheats and No-Clip

  1. Open the Console: First, open your console within CS2. Make sure to enable it if it's not already.
  2. Enable sv_cheats: Input the command "sv_cheats true/1".
  3. Activate No-Clip: To enable the noclip mode, bind "noclip" to a button to fly freely through the map. This function will be crucial for precise grenade practice.

Perfecting Your Grenade Throws

  1. Utilize the Preview Box: As you hold a grenade with the pin pulled, observe the preview box on the left side of your screen. It will show you exactly where your grenade will land.
  2. Jump for Better Views: Jump while holding a grenade to see its trajectory preview. This feature is incredibly helpful for finding out where jumpthrow nades will land.
  3. Checking Grenade Accuracy: After throwing a grenade, use the no-clip mode to check where it actually lands and blooms. The preview box disappears after the throw, so this step is essential for accuracy.

Helpful Practice Commands

  1. Time-Saving Command: Use the console command "ent_fire smokegrenade_projectile kill;ent_fire molotov_projectile kill;ent_fire flashbang_projectile kill;ent_fire hegrenade_projectile kill;ent_fire decoy_projectile kill;stopsound" to instantly remove the last thrown smoke grenade. No more waiting for the smoke to dissipate!
  2. Rethrow Command: "sv_rethrow_last_grenade" is a command that will throw the last grenade you threw!
  3. Create a Bind: Make your practice more efficient by binding the command to a key, such as the comma key. Now, you can remove smokes with a simple press.

Enhancing Your Practice Experience

Using the Practice Config

  1. Faster and More Efficient: The practice config is a game-changer, making your practice sessions smoother and more efficient. It eliminates the need to manually input console commands.
  2. Download the Config: Access the CS2 practice config by following the link in the video description. Download the config file and save it to your desktop.
  3. Move the Config: Place the downloaded config file in the specified folder location: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\game\csgo\cfg". Ensure it's in the correct "game/csgo/cfg" folder.
  1. Load the Config: Launch CS2, create a practice server as instructed at the beginning of the video, and open the console. Type exec CS2_practice and press Enter. The config will load automatically.

Practice Server Enhancements

With the practice config loaded, you'll notice several improvements in your practice server:

  • No Warm-Up: The warm-up timer disappears from your screen.
  • Cheats Enabled: sv_cheats is already enabled, saving you time.
  • No-Clip Active: You can use no-clip mode freely.
  • Buying Anywhere: Purchase weapons and equipment from anywhere, not just from the spawn point.
  • Unlimited Money: You'll have unlimited money to buy grenades and practice without constraints.
  • Wallbang Testing: When you shoot at walls, you'll see red impact marks, allowing you to practice wall bangs and improve your aim.
  • Health Regeneration: While there's no God mode in CS2, you can use the regen command to restore your health gradually "sv_regeneration_force_on true", which is especially useful during practice sessions.
