Using Grenades Effectively in Counter-Strike

Using Grenades Effectively in Counter-Strike 

Grenades are a big part of counter-strike. However, many good players don't know how to use them well. Knowing how to use all of the grenades well can give you an advantage in an even battle.

Tips for all 3 grenades 
One mistake I see many players make is being fragged while trying to throw a grenade. This is a huge mistake since it is an easy kill for your opponent. Sometimes this is unavoidable, but there are a few ways to lower the risk. First, use cover to make sure the enemy cannot see you when you throw the grenade. This can be tougher, but if you learn a lot of the angles of the map, you can often bounce the grenade off of something or throw the grenade over cover. Another way is to have teammates cover you while you are throwing a grenade. Another generic tip is to use cs commands to bind certain grenades to unused mouse buttons.

This is usually the easiest grenade for most players to use. Try to drop this as close to your opponent as possible. Use this to help take choke points. However, don't use this when you have a clear shot at your enemy. Use your gun instead. This grenade is best used to clear corners, hold back pushing opponents, and clearing common enemy locations.

This is the least commonly used grenade of the three grenades in cs 1.6 or css. The key to using this grenade is to get it between you and your enemy without getting it so close to you that you get lost in the smoke. The smoke grenade is best used against an awp since a good ak/m4 rifler will know how to use the smoke to their advantage.

This is one of the most powerful grenades in counter strike. However, many players do not know how to use it. Make sure you throw this grenade high in the air. Also, try to use more than 1 flash to clear a bombsite. Many good players know how to use cover to avoid a flash or two.
