It’s all in the Numbers

Counter Strike Cheats

Counting cards has long been known as a card game strategy to improve your odds of winning. It’s frowned upon by big casino’s and for good reason, they achieve superior results. These same time-tested skills can be used to bring edge to your game and transform you from a follower to a combat mastermind. Counting cards is all about increasing your chances of winning without seeing anything, CS is all too familiar with this:

This is the five step plan on how to drastically improve your chances of survival on a full public server:

1 – Count Flashbangs, HE Nades and Smokes

Can you hear all the different kind of nades going off in the different parts of the map? A player can only have 2 FB’s, 1 HE and 1 Smoke. If you hear 3 flashes go off at Long A, there are at least 2 players and so on. I know, sounds really hard all that counting, 1, 2, uhhh…. 4?

2 – Count the different type of rifles or pistols being fired

This is very helpful, not only in counting the amount of players roaming an area, but more specifically to pinpoint their exact location. As a CT you can pretty much tell from spawn if a T AWP’r is inside or outside B tunnels, is in the Long A pit or waiting outside Double Doors. All you need to do is rotate your player a little to get the exact ange of the enemy, headphones are you friend!

3 – Track the names of the opponents with regards to their radar location

Just taking a mental note of who killed your teammate and where on the map is an awesome way to keep count. If Player A frags your buddy and Player B emerges out of that location and you frag back, Player A is still hanging out somewhere. Common sense, but hey, how often do you see a teammate run into those silly deathtraps?

4 – Count the number of players crossing a chokepoint

Incredible how many teams lose Dust2 because they don’t bother to count the amount of player’s crossing over. It’s not uncommon for a team to do an eco-stack on A, which is a great opportunity for you to cash in.

5 – Count the amount of footsteps you hear

This is a tougher one as two players can sound five like if they’re running together, but helpful nonetheless. Watch out for the walker, there is ALWAYS one! 🙂
