Counter Strike: Global Offensive is a game that requires you to either plant or defuse the bomb. The counter terrorist team and the terrorist team fight for authority over a bomb site; however things turn complicated when it’s time to defuse the planted bomb.
We have often seen that a counter terrorist actually goes for the AWP sniper rifle instead of defusing the bomb. It not only happens in your competitive mode games but also in the professional Counter Strike: Global Offensive circuit!
G2 Esports is known for messing up the defuse, but don’t worry. We will make sure they sign you for their following roster because you will be a pro at defusing the bomb by the end of this guide!
How to defuse the bomb in CS GO?
When you are playing a Counter Strike game, and it’s your turn as the Counter Terrorists, you can defuse the bomb with the default key E. It takes around 10 seconds to defuse the bomb. Still, if you purchased the defuse kit at the start of the round, you would be able to successfully defuse the bomb in 5 seconds!
Don’t look away while you defuse the bomb in CS GO!
We have seen so many Counter Terrorists make this mistake while they defuse the bomb in CS GO. Please don’t look away here and there rapidly! If the defusing player turns too quickly while they defuse a bomb, the defuse progress will be reset!
This puts your entire team in a challenging situation, so kindly avoid doing this. In the end, your objective is to just control the explosive device and not look around the bomb site as you defuse a bomb.
Crouch and Stand!
If you have watched professional Counter Strike games, then you would have noticed the players crouching and repeatedly standing while defusing the bomb. It might have made you wonder what could be the reason behind it, and it’s straightforward. They crouch and stand so they are a moving target, and the enemy just might miss a simple shot to which they can reply with their own accurate shot.
Use that scope!
A widespread occurrence at the bomb sites is 1v1 situations where a player is forced to defuse a bomb while one of the terrorists is just waiting to take you down when you can’t hit them.
A neat trick is to fool them! You can actually equip the scope while defusing the bomb, and this might fool your opponent into thinking that you faked a defuse and are going to hit them as soon as they peak!
It’s all about these little mind games at the end, so mix it up a little rather than doing the same thing over and over again to play with your enemies!
Always buy that defusing kit!
We have watched so many games where one of the five players didn’t buy the defusing kit, and in the end, that’s the reason behind them losing the round! It only costs 400 credits of your money so please buy it every single time!
What would you accomplish if you eliminated the other team, but the bomb exploded?
If you hear a radio message saying the bomb is about to explode, then don’t just stand there and try to prevent the bomb from exploding. You should run and save your equipment for the next phase. It’s in the best interest of you and your teammates, so don’t be ashamed to give up around because you heard that death beep.
Don’t try the sneaky defuse!
It is one of the best feelings if you are hiding somewhere in the bomb site and escape the sight of multiple enemies to defuse the bomb very sneakily. However, the chances of this happening are one game out of a hundred, so don’t put your teammates in a 4v5 just because you wanted the record to defuse time!
A better idea is to just kill the enemy as they plant the bomb. It is better to have a 4v4 at the end of the day than a 4v5, right?
The Grenade Attack!
There aren’t many players who know this trick, but this might be the trick that wins you the match! The first thing you need to remember is that there are two types of throws for every grenade in the game. The left-click throws it further, and the right-click throws it just in front of you.
However, there is a neat little combination that you can use while defusing a bomb! You can hold the right click and then hold the left click, but now you only need to release the right click for the grenade to follow the trajectory of the simple left-click!
It will allow you to prevent anyone from simply entering your ground and killing you while you defuse.
We hope that you will kill more terrorists and easily take control of the bomb site. Still, if you are ever in a situation where you have a dead teammate and need to defuse the C4, then you can use our extremely important tips to take down the enemy team and win the game for your team!
