As CS:GO is a game played and won with cooperative teams, good strategy, and great artillery control. Successful grenades can be game changers and could decide the fate of a match.
Including tactical play, we also need to know area maps and the best place to blow up enemies and spread fire or smoke in the right spot. This article will help you locate the best grenade spots on Dust 2.
Knowing the spots and techniques beforehand, you can throw grenades from a safe distance and secure those kills.
Smoke, HE Grenades, Molotov, Flashbangs, and Decoy
These are all the Explosive we can use during the match. Flashbangs blind enemies for a while, allowing players to pass through certain map areas, while Molotov and smoke grenades can block enemy paths. Nevertheless, every Grenade has its use, and executing them properly on the field can determine the team’s victory.
But before you jump into the real match, I recommend you practice using all these grenades and master the art of throwing them in the right spot.

I will guide you to throw grenades, learn about different uses of each Grenade, and know the effective spots for each throwable.
Molotov for Back platform B side
If you are pushing the B side from CT Mid, then you can fire on the back platform before entering the B doors or window.
This will clear the doubt about the opponent camper lurking in the corner.

You can fire the entire Short A and block the opponent’s path from entering the A side. To throw a Molotov, you need to stand in the corner between the box and A Ramp. Aim at the middle of the red building rooftop, move a little back and just throw. The Molotov will deflect the wall and land on the floor of Short A.
With enough practice, you can throw Molotov to cause fire to spread on the stairs as well as the stair corner.
