Best Grenade Spots for Dust 2

    Dust 2 is the most popular map in CS:GO, and lineups for it are essential. This is why we created a list of the best grenade spots for Dust 2.

    Counter-Strike’s Dust 2 map has been around for a little over 20 years. It was originally released in March 2001 for Counter-Strike 1.1. The map was then added to both CS: Source and CS:GO during their respective eras.

    Dust 2 is an iconic map in Counter-Strike, and even though it’s old, it’s still one of the most played maps in CS:GO. Proper grenade lineups are an integral part of the game. It allows you to throw grenades at specific locations around the map.

    Knowing the good smoke spots for Dust 2 is great, but knowing the best grenade spots is even better. Here’s our list of the best grenade spots for Dust 2.

    Best Grenade Spots in Dust 2 – A Site

    First, let’s take a look at the best grenade spots for Dust 2’s A Site. This includes different pop flashes, incendiary/molotov, and HE grenades that are useful for both Terrorists and Counter-Terrorists.

    A Long Doors Pop Flash

    The first grenade on this list is a pop flash that is perfect for entering through A long doors. Usually, CTs can push up A long and hold an aggressive angle. Using this pop flash can help you get inside safely and even help you pick up a kill or two.

    A Site Entry Flash from Short

    This is another excellent entry flash for the T-side players. You throw it from A short/ catwalk side and should blind most enemies that are hiding within the default plant site. Just watch out for players hiding in A long or car.

    Long Doors Aggressive Pop Flash with Teammate

    Next, we have a flash for CTs who want to be more aggressive and push towards long doors. This should blind any Terrorists pushing and going outside long doors. Unfortunately, you can’t do this flash alone and need somebody else to throw the flash for you.

    Grab your best Discord headset and practice this flash with a friend or a duo. It’s a very powerful flash that most enemies won’t see coming.

    A Site Default Molly

    Now, we’re moving on to molly grenades. Molotov and incendiary grenades burn and spread once they explode. It’s a great way to clear areas and corners without actually checking them one by one.

    This molly is for A site default and can quickly help clear the site making it safe for your team to plant the bomb.

    A Site Goose Molly

    Goose is located at the top corner of A site. It’s a great place to hide from A short while having complete vision over A long. Usually, AWPers play at goose and tuck into the corner when hiding. Throwing a Molotov at this spot is a good idea to easily clear it when coming from A short.

    Car Molly

    Finally, we have the car molly for A site. This is the last A site grenade spot on this list. Car is a common cheeky angle to play since you can spot Terrorists crossing from A long or A short. It’s definitely worth using a Molotov to check car to ensure that no one is hiding within that pocket.

    The molly can also be thrown from a safe space and can be combined with the A long doors pop flash for safety.

    Best Grenade Spots in Dust 2 – B Site

    Next, here are some of the best grenade spots for the B site in Dust 2. Lineups usually require jump binds for accuracy. Make sure to prepare your best CS:GO keyboard to accurately throw these grenades using jump binds.

    Back Platform Molly

    Back plat is usually a place where AWPers hold angles in B site. You can easily force them to move by throwing a molly back there. He either moves out of cover, and you can get a quick kill, or he burns from your molly.

    Just make sure that you have a bit of cover since it’s a relatively open lineup. Throwing a smoke at B main would definitely help a lot.

    CT Spawn Molly from B Site

    This molly is great for preventing quick rotates through CT spawn. It covers a large area, and enemies can’t pass unless they use a smoke grenade to put out the molly or they take some damage.

    Unfortunately, this grenade spot only works if you have complete control over B site since it’s thrown from a pretty open area.

    B Main Molly/HE from Doors

    This next molly is for CTs and can help prevent B main rushes. You can also work with a teammate to follow this up with an HE grenade, or you can throw it yourself after the molly dies down to buy some extra time.

    B Main Molly/HE from Window

    Another good molly/HE grenade spot in dust 2 from window

    In addition to the first grenade spot, you can also throw a molly or HE grenade from B window, and it will serve the same purpose. This is just a better way to throw the grenades if you are an AWPer holding window.

    B Site Molly Great for Retake

    This last molly grenade spot is a great way to retake B site control as CTs. It can safely be thrown near B boxes and can help you gain control of the site again. It can also be a great way to prevent or delay enemies from planting the bomb.

    B Site Entry Flash

    The following two flashes are both for entering into the B site. Both are thrown from different locations and blind people from different angles. This first one is better for close angles and will blind everyone looking directly at B main.

    B Site Deep Flash

    B Site Deep Flash

    Next, this B site entry flash pops further than the first one and should blind enemies positioned at B window, back plat, outside B car, and fence. These two flashes are great to use right after each other and ensures that most if not all people defending the B site are blinded.

    B Main Flash from Window

    Flash to delay B main rush

    Since we’re already talking about flashes, here’s another excellent flash to use to delay B main rushes. This flash is thrown from B window and should blind everyone trying to rush B main. Make sure to communicate the flash if you have a player on back plat since it can flash him too.

    B Site Flash for Retake

    Lastly, we have a good flash for retaking B site. This flash can be thrown just outside B window and should blind anyone on site, watching B window, and even enemies holding B door. It’s an excellent and quick flash that covers a huge area.

    Best Grenade Spots for Dust 2 – Middle Area

    The last part of this list includes the best grenade spots for the middle area in Dust 2. Make sure to get your best CS:GO mouse ready and lineup grenades for mid doors, short, and tunnels.

    Mid Doors Pop Flash

    a fast mid doors pop flash for a quick push

    First, we have a great mid doors pop flash perfect for pushing through mid from tunnels. This can surprise enemies holding behind mid doors. AWPers usually hold mid doors, and sometimes some enemies even hold close angles. They should all get blind by this flash.

    Mid Doors Molly

    This is a great follow-up molly to the above-mentioned flash, especially if you don’t want to push through mid doors. This molly lands right behind mid doors and burns everyone holding the close corner.

    Short Stairs Molly

    Next, we have a molly for A short that can hold off aggressive CT pushes and can help you easily go through mid doors or push tunnels. Be prepared to fight, though, because enemies can still push through the molly.

    Short Molly for Defenders

    Opposite to the first molly, this one is a CT-side molly that you can throw to prevent quick a short pushes. The molly gives your teammates extra time to rotate to A site or for you to reposition to a better angle.

    Those were our picks for the best grenade spots for Dust 2. Dust 2 has been around for around 20 years, and it has been 4 years since it was revamped in CS:GO. I’m sure that there are plenty more grenade spots and lineups out there.
