This is a strong alternative A take on T pistol round that only requires two players to set everyone up.
- Three players go palace (A apps), taking the bomb
- Two players go ramp
The players going to palace buy armor, and the ones at ramp buy full nades (flash, smoke, HE)
The players at ramp are going to smoke off stairs and jungle on the A site. As the smokes are popping, they will flash the site once or twice and swarm out at the same time with the guys from palace. The aim is to clear site and push to CT as fast as possible. The HE nades can be used if an enemy players falls back to CT or is jiggle peeking triple box. They could also be thrown to stairs later. The bomb should be planted behind triple-box, where it can easily be defended from CT.
All the players on site should be overwhelmed quickly as they have no support from jungle or connector. You should push one player close to the smokes to look for pushes. Another common thing for CTs to do is to drop into sandwich. As long as you’re close to them as they push the smokes, you are at a massive advantage.
After the site is clear and bomb planted, if the smokes still permit it, one player should stay in ramp for a crossfire. Despite this, it is important to rush the site together and not leave anyone baiting. The CTs shouldn’t have time to flank you if you’re swift. Obviously this strat is vulnerable to counter-stratting, since they players at ramp can be pushed as they set up nades, but should work when used sparingly or against PUG opponents.
