Attacking B (middle)

Attacking B (middle)

«markeloff»

The key incentive behind this tactical move is to fake the attack at the catwalk during which one of the T players jumps down to the CT spawn. The simultaneous push of his teammates in the middle will allow this player to catch CTs off-guard and shoot them in their backs. Additionally, thanks to that aforementioned fake, most likely there will remain only one single defender at bombsite "B".

It's not a secret that terrorist start many rounds on de_dust2 by holding the middle and then deciding which way to go. Unlike CS 1.6, in CS:GO it's much more common for Ts to attack CT-middle. This is the execution of the so-called B+center. It becomes especially effective due to the thick smokes in CS:GO. Nevertheless, many teams learned to counter such moves so you shouldn't be using them too often. So here's the round by UkraineHellRaisers at EMS One Katowice performed against the Germans from Germanymousesports.

 

MARKELOFF

 

Yegor Markelov had a pretty simple task. His role could be described as a bomb-carry with a sniper riffle who controls the middle early in the round and then joins Kucher in the tunnels. You can expect him to make some noise when his team attacks the center. Yegor's objective is to kill the remaining defender at "B" site. Terrorists in the tunnels should play very cautiously as their opponents could suddenly push towards upper tunnels after having realized they're getting flanked and blocked from both sides.

 

  

 

KUCHER

 

Emil Akhundov plays the role of the second teammate in the tunnels. Right off the bat he heads towards the upper tunnel and controls the possible push from bombsite "B". His next objective is to join Markeloff at the right time and take the site to plant the bomb.

 

  

 

ADREN and ANGEL

 

AdreN goes to the lower tunnels. After spamming the middle doors he moves on the catwalk to join ANGEL. Next, AdreN throws a flash grenade (Mouse1+Mouse2) and both players start holding their positions near the bridge. It's important to produce as much noise as possible while doing so to realistically fake the massive attack. Even if there is no enemies around the corner use pre-fire to draw their hearing attention. The objective of these players is not only perform the grenade throwing but also to delude their opponents by faking the attack at the catwalk. Ok, now it's time for some grenades:

 

AdreN's view

   

 

It's worth mentioning that on the following screens AdreN's smoke was executed incorrectly. You need to adjust your crosshair more to the left while throwing in order to cover the entire space of the gap.
 
After both smokes were deployed along with the flashbangs, ANGEL simply jumps from the bridge. It's important to cover your backs at this point to prevent your enemies from pushing through the smoke and catching you off-guard. AdreN returns in the middle and joins Dosia.

DOSIA

 

Mikhail Stolyarov holds the following position early in the round in order to prevent enemies from pushing long. Similar to the players on the catwalk, it's important to make some noise here. Dosia uses a flash and spams the doors. Having done all this, he moves to the middle and gets his second flashbang ready for AdreN to pass the double doors.

 

  

 

You can see the timings in the round on the screenshots above. It's important to follow them in order to force your opponents move and make mistakes. Note that the standard smoke to the CT spawn is not used in this round because it will handicap ANGEL's actions. That's why it's important to pass the double doors in the middle with minimum grenades possible.
 
After successfully pushing the middle, Dosia and AdreN head towards "B" while ANGEL remains in his position to cut off the defense players from helping their teammates. The simultaneous push into "B" allowed UkraineHellRaisers to kill both defenders on the site which forces the Germans to go for a save. As a result, 4:1 in favor of the CIS-based squad and an eco-round for Germanymousesports.
 
You can take this scheme as a template, add your own elements, adjust the number of the players in specific areas of the map at certain points in the round, use different grenades for invading "B" site, etc. Feel free to experiment, try new things, practice hard and your team will succeed.
