Grenade & molotov cheats found in CS: GO

The CS: GO fans found a command that allows them to change the shape of the smoke and the area of spread of fire from the molotovs. These commands are not blocked by the anti-cheat and work on the official servers of the game. One of the renowned enthusiasts, Don Haci showed exactly how the commands work. He posted a few illustrative examples on Twitter. He also applied a command to the Molotov cocktail, that managed to make the fire disappear for half a second.

When playing on third-party platforms (FACEIT, ESEA),a team can only use each command once per round. It should be noted that theses commands don’t work on the flash and decoy grenades.

Reddit users found that the commands can change the form of smoke and fire, since their parameters are in the client of the game. It means, only the player who threw the grenade will be able to witness the changes. Perhaps these commands enable you to throw a grenade into a narrow passage and allow you to choose a convenient form of smoke. This way you can have tactical edge over your enemies.

It is difficult to determine how strongly these commands can affect the competitive scene. Valve representatives have not yet commented on the situation. The reddit fans of CS: GO have already joked that this is what helped Astralis win so many tournaments. We recommend you to enjoy these commands as much as you can in your competitive games before Valve fixes the problems.

There’s expected to be a slight dip in esports betting, says many esports betting sites, due to the studies that suggest women don’t bet or even have interest in esports.
