CS:GO – Two useful ladder tricks!

August 24, 2019

Here’s two ladder tricks that most of you
might not know about and could be very useful in certain scenarios. Please don’t kill me if you already know them. Hey guys, salut mes amis och hallå gubbar,
Maxim here. The ladder tricks that I’m about to show you
are not just for show, they can be used in certain competitive scenarios. The first trick that I’m going to show you
is this one. You saw that? Here it is again. How’s that possible? You’re not supposed to jump that far so what’s
going on here. Well, the ladders are actually kind of weird
in CS:GO, or more specifically the func_ladder. Each ladder has a ladder function or else
you wouldn’t be able to use the ladder, just like this one, rip. The ladder function is what makes it possible
to glide up and down, basically. In CS:GO, while on the ladder, if you aim
downwards so you’re gliding down to the end of the ladder function, and jump, you will
be thrown in the opposite direction. You can try this on any map, but I would recommend
Mirage, because of this ladder. Now this is possible because the ladder function
is close to the ground. Most ladders in the game look like this, there
are some cases where you can find this example which also works, but this one is quite rare.
…and you guessed it, it doesn’t work, at least when I tried multiple times. All right, so how is this useful? Well, let’s take Mirage for example at shadow. You can use this to quickly jump out, and
surprise kill your enemies. What’s really cool about the trick is that
it doesn’t rely on where you’re aiming, as long as you’re on the end of the ladder function
you could prepare your crosshair placement, jump and… Sadly there’s not a lot of ladders on the
official maps. And train which has more ladders than all
the other maps combined, does not seem to have a single ladder worth mentioning for
this trick, unless of course you want to do this. But that’s just something you wanna show your
friends. I thought about other ways of making the ladder
trick aka the catapult work, and you can also do some things while strafing. For example on Mirage in ladder-room (literally). You could quickly turn the corner and shoot
someone like this. I don’t honestly believe that it’s going to
be super useful against high skilled players but you could probably have some fun with
it in lower skilled games… or against watermelons. If there’s any examples on a map that you
can think of, let me know in the comments. But the video doesn’t end here, I have one
more trick to show you. Take this ladder that I made. It’s pretty short I would say. If I climb up the ladder and get to the top,
here’s where the next trick comes to play. If you walk towards the ladder, fall but
don’t touch any keys on your keyboard you will instantly… …fall to your death. What did you expect? Seriously though, if you move just a single
bit in the air the ladder will catch you and it will be totally silent. So if I fall down with the ladder in front
of me, and quickly grab it by holding down shift and hitting forward, did you hear that? That’s the point, I made no sound. This works on any ladder so I could use it
to move down quickly without making any sound. On Overpass for example this could be really
useful. On Nuke as well, and probably other maps. As long as the ladders are tall enough you
can do this every-time. Just wanna point out, if you’re just watching
this video and you have no plans on trying it out, you should know both these tricks
take practice. That’s the tricks I wanted to show you in this video. Let me know what you thought about them. Make sure you follow me on Twitter if you
want to see my true grumpy side and there’s also Instagram. I’ll see you guys in the next one, and go

    let's go to another level, if one player climbs the ladder in dark (mirage underwood) a bit, another player can climb on the ladder and use the head of the first one as surface to jump from, then he can from upperwood and surprise the enemy's even more 😀

    Mirage, shadow ladder and ladder room one, when you clip just a little bit on top of the ladder you do exactly the same trick, so you peek on top of the wood at shadow and you can peek little window in ladder room for jungle/window(looks like a very fast wide peek)

    There's also a trick that for whatever reason some people don't know. If you climb a ladder up sideways (so holding w+a or w+d) dame works with going downwards tho i personally dont have the need to do it like that. This way you can climb ladders way quivker than normal.

  • Reply Hokori May 30, 2018 at 2:52 am

    Add inverted climbing. look to the bottom right of the ladder and hold a,s to move up faster. works with (a,s looking bottom right) (d,s looking bottom left) (a,w looking top right) and (d,w looking top left) Useful for not having to look up while climbing in certain situations can be very game changing.

    People probably have other names for it but this is what my group and I call it.

    I have already seen the second trick, but I thought you had to accurately move off the edge so that you'd catch the edge.
