Most famous Train callouts


Top 10 CS2 callouts in Train map:

  • Popdog: A crucial point for controlling A Yard. It's the ladder room just before B Halls. Players use it for quick access to A Site or to flank enemies.
  • Ivy: A long, narrow corridor that's essential for map control. Controlling Ivy can cut off rotations and provide a strong position for attacking A Site.
  • B Halls: The staging area for Terrorists before attacking B Site. It's vital for setting up smokes and executes onto B.
  • E Box: Located between Popdog and the A Bomb Train, it's a pivotal spot for defending A Site from Terrorist pushes.
  • Hell: Next to the Green Train, facing Ivy. It's a key position for defending A Site, offering viewlines to multiple attack paths.
  • Z Connector: The main rotation path between A and B Sites. Control here is vital for map dominance.
  • Upper B: The higher entrance to B Site. Its elevation gives a strategic advantage for overseeing and controlling B Site.
  • T Connector/A Main: The main route for Terrorists into A Site. It's often heavily contested and crucial for site takes.
  • CT Spawn: The Counter-Terrorists' starting point. It's important for B Site retakes and controlling rotations to A Site.
  • Sidewalk: Running from Lower B/B Ramp to Z Connector, this area is key for B Site defenses and rotations.

Gabriele from Clash.gg, a seasoned CS2 player, emphasized the importance of mastering these callouts. "Understanding these areas transforms your gameplay. It's not just about shooting skills; it’s about strategic positioning and team communication," he said.
