Lining up and landing the perfect smoke grenade in Counter-Strike is no easy task. It takes time, practice, and dedication. 

Learning the ins and outs of each map is a long and arduous task. But with a jumpthrow bind, it’s just that much easier.

Jumping and throwing are essential to pulling off the perfect smokes. Without jumping, the distance simply isn’t there. The problem lies with inconsistency. Timing your jump and releasing your grenade even a millisecond apart can throw it off-kilter. 

That’s where a jumpthrow bind comes in. It removes the element of inconsistency and makes every jumpthrow count. Line up and use your jumpbind even a hundred times, and it should land in exactly the same position.

To create and activate a jumpthrow bind, you first need to set up a config.

All you have to do is navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\cfg, create a text file, and name it autoexec.cfg. Once you’ve done this, open it, and paste the following:

  • alias “+jumpthrow” “+jump;-attack”
  • alias “-jumpthrow” “-jump”
  • bind “[V]” +jumpthrow

Next, click save. If you’re not keen on V for jumpthrow, you can choose any key you like. A few good alternatives include the alt key, and mouse button four or five.

Once you’ve saved the text file, right-click on the CS:GO icon in Steam, click Properties, Set Launch Options, and write +exec autoexec.cfg. This will activate your config every time you load up the game.
