  • Knives
  • Knives are the essential weapons in every game of war. You can use a knife as a last resort or where you can’t use the gun. When you start playing the games, you get the knives automatically. It works on a very short range and doesn’t make much sound when you use it. You can make fast but low damage with the primary attack with the knife, which results in a severe, moderate damage secondary attack at the end of the war.

The most expensive knife in CSGO like a bayonet, butterfly knives, classic, falchion, flip, gut, karambit, and so many other types help you to play the game properly. You can attack an enemy with the knife silently and kill him without making any sound so that the other people get informed. In the arms race mode, you can use a Gold knife to give you more accuracy to kill your enemies.

  • Tactics to Use the Knives
  • Since the knives are lightweight weapons, you can use them while you are running with high speed. When you need to kill your enemy silently, you can easily use the knives. But if you are using knives to kill the enemies, you need to be highly skilled and lucky enough to stay protected from the probable shots from your enemy. We have discussed earlier in this article that the knives have a shorter range of secondary attacks so you can hit your opponent with the knife in short or midrange. You can take out the knife in minutes as quicker than your opponent reloads his weapon. You will have to use the primary fire twice and then the secondary fire once if you want to kill a healthy opponent while you can’t backstab him.

Fire Arms of CS: GO

Firearms signify those weapons which you can use to attack your enemy with fire. With these weapons, you can kill your enemies from a distant range. Every firearm has a specific range where it can kill the target. So in the counter strike global offensive, you will get different types of firearms like pistols, rifles, SMGs, and so on. 

To start with the pistols, you can use the Glock-18 and Tec-9, capable of giving you a solid start. Both these weapons are useful in close combat, and Tec-9 becomes the best between these two. Tec-9 has a good range, and it can fire the bullets at a higher speed also. It also has a stronger armor penetration capacity than that of the Glock-18.

For the counter-terrorists, you can always start with the USP-S shine. It has tremendous accuracy at long range and a good damaging capacity. If you want to kill your enemies from a long distance, keep the USP-S and purchase a Kevlar so that you can easily protect yourself from the potential damage due to your enemy’s attack. As you are playing for the counter-terrorist squad, you need to know these things better than any other player.

  • Rifles
