- Counter-Strike 2 still supports keybinds, much like CS:GO, but some of them have changed with this release.
- The most commonly used CS2 binds like Jump Throw, Crouch Jump, Bhop, Grenade bind, and much more.
- To use keybinds, we suggest you make a config file and execute it using the developer console every time you open CS2.
CS2 is not only a glorified, graphical improvement over CS: GO, but it brings a ton of new features too. Unfortunately, that means a lot of old configurations and keybinds were altered. This makes the keybind user’s life harder. But do not worry about finding the new bind configs as we have compiled all the important and useful CS2 keybinds in this article. Along with it, we have mentioned how you can use these binds in the game using the exec command in the developer console. So, without any further ado, let’s dive in.
What is a Bind in Counter-Strike 2?
In Counter-Strike 2, a bind is when you perform a particular set of actions using a single key. This can also mean changing your walk forward button from W to S. Well, of course, no sane person will do that. But there are a lot of actions such as jump throw or B-hopping that can be time-consuming when using multiple keys and take a lot of skill to perform.
With the use of keybinds in CS2, you can perform all such actions without spending too much time learning the skills from scratch. This will make your life much easier in the game.
List of Useful CS2 Binds/ Configs
The following configs are useful and popular from the days of CS Source. Binding keys to a certain action can cut down a lot of time in the heat of the battle. Along with being fast, the binds will also enable you to be accurate with those actions. So, here are the 5 best Counter-Strike 2 keybinds you should be using:
1. Jump Throw Bind
One of the most popular binds in CS: GO was the jump throw. This bind exists in the new edition of the game too. You can throw any utilities while jumping using this config. Remember, you will have to pull the grenade pin before pressing the ALT button or the key you bind in the CFG.
alias "+jt1" "+jump" alias "+jt2" "-attack; -attack2" alias "+jt3" "-jump" bind ALT "+jt1; +jt2; +jt3"
2. Crouch Jump Bind
Crouching while jumping is a great tool for boosting or reaching places in CS2 that a normal jump cannot provide. Binding a key to crouch jump can make your life easier to reach certain places. For example: You can reach Inferno banana boost without the help of another player using this.
alias "+hjump" "+jump; +duck"; alias "-hjump" "-jump; -duck"; bind f "+hjump"
3. CS2 Bhop Bind
Bhop or Bunnyhop is a well-known trick that many CS pros use. In this, you can bind your mouse wheel scroll to help you jump in CS2. A lot of professional AWP players use this to shoot down enemies out of nowhere.
alias "+myjump" "+jump" alias "-myjump" "-jump" bind "mwheeldown" "+myjump;-myjump" bind "mwheelup" "+myjump;-myjump"
4. Mute All Voice Bind
Tired of unwanted teammates shouting in your ears when you are trying to clutch up a round? Or, are you tired of the constant fan noise coming from someone’s mic? These things are common in a typical CS game. Luckily, we bring you the ultimate keybind to solve this voice comms issue.
bind j "toggle voice_modenable 1 0"
5. CS2 Grenade Binds
You can transfer your Valorant sensitivity to CS2, but can you become a Valorant agent with abilities in Counter-Strike? What if I say you can? Well, technically you can bind the ability buttons you use in Valorant like Z, X, C, and V in CS2 to different utilities such as smokes, Molotov, flashbangs, etc. Using this bind config, will do the following actions:
- Z – flashbang
- X – smoke grenade
- C – frag grenade
- V – molotov and incendiary grenade
Now, you can stop using one button four times to reach your incendiary.
bind z "slot7"; bind x "slot8"; bind c "slot6"; bind v "slot10"
How to Use Counter-Strike 2 Binds
Now that you know the essential keybinds to use in CS2, you need to learn how to execute them in the developer console. You can directly copy the commands listed above and paste them into your console. However, maintaining a CFG file can make your life easier as you can add all the configs in a single CFG file. Follow the steps below to execute the binds through a CFG file:
- To begin, you will first need to navigate to – SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\game\csgo\cfg
- Now, click the right mouse button and select New -> Text Document in the context menu.
- Now, copy the CFG code for your desired keybind from the list we’ve included above and paste it into the empty document.
- Then, save the file and rename New Text Document.txt to a [File Name].cfg file. Don’t forget to add the .cfg extension.
- After that, launch Counter-Strike 2 and open the developer console by pressing the ~ key on your keyboard.
- Now, type exec [File Name].cfg in the console and press Enter. Make sure you put the exact file name in the console.
- Finally, press the bind key you set in the config file from your keyboard to trigger the action you desire.
Note: You need to use the steps above to execute CS2 binds every time you reopen the game. Once you close the game, the command will also close with it.
