Here’s two ladder tricks that most of you might not know about and could be very useful in certain scenarios. Please don’t kill me if you already know them. Hey guys, salut mes amis och hallå gubbar, Maxim here. The ladder tricks that I’m about to show you are not just for show, they can be used in certain competitive scenarios. The first trick that I’m going to show you is this one. You saw that? Here it is again. How’s that possible? You’re not supposed to jump that far so what’s going on here. Well, the ladders are actually kind of weird in CS:GO, or more specifically the func_ladder. Each ladder has a ladder function or else you wouldn’t be able to use the ladder, just like this one, rip. The ladder function is what makes it possible to glide up and down, basically. In CS:GO, while on the ladder, if you aim downwards so you’re gliding down to the end of the ladder function, and jump, you will be thrown in the opposite direction. You can try this on any map, but I would recommend Mirage, because of this ladder.

Now this is possible because the ladder function is close to the ground. Most ladders in the game look like this, there are some cases where you can find this example which also works, but this one is quite rare. …and you guessed it, it doesn’t work, at least when I tried multiple times. All right, so how is this useful? Well, let’s take Mirage for example at shadow. You can use this to quickly jump out, and surprise kill your enemies. What’s really cool about the trick is that it doesn’t rely on where you’re aiming, as long as you’re on the end of the ladder function you could prepare your crosshair placement, jump and…

Sadly there’s not a lot of ladders on the official maps. And train which has more ladders than all the other maps combined, does not seem to have a single ladder worth mentioning for this trick, unless of course you want to do this. But that’s just something you wanna show your friends. I thought about other ways of making the ladder trick aka the catapult work, and you can also do some things while strafing. For example on Mirage in ladder-room (literally). You could quickly turn the corner and shoot someone like this. I don’t honestly believe that it’s going to be super useful against high skilled players but you could probably have some fun with it in lower skilled games… or against watermelons. If there’s any examples on a map that you can think of, let me know in the comments. But the video doesn’t end here, I have one more trick to show you. Take this ladder that I made. It’s pretty short I would say. If I climb up the ladder and get to the top, here’s where the next trick comes to play. If you walk towards the ladder, fall but don’t touch any keys on your keyboard you will instantly…

…fall to your death. What did you expect? Seriously though, if you move just a single bit in the air the ladder will catch you and it will be totally silent. So if I fall down with the ladder in front of me, and quickly grab it by holding down shift and hitting forward, did you hear that? That’s the point, I made no sound. This works on any ladder so I could use it to move down quickly without making any sound. On Overpass for example this could be really useful. On Nuke as well, and probably other maps. As long as the ladders are tall enough you can do this every-time. Just wanna point out, if you’re just watching this video and you have no plans on trying it out, you should know both these tricks take practice. That’s the tricks I wanted to show you in this video. Let me know what you thought about them. Make sure you follow me on Twitter if you want to see my true grumpy side and there’s also Instagram. I’ll see you guys in the next one, and go bananas!
