Callouts of CS:GO maps

Callouts are used to specify different areas of the map and are essential to locate opponents or to make tactical calls during the game. It is important that you agree on them in your team and since communication is a key factor for success in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive you should at least know the main callouts of each map.

Here and in our SmokeBaron App you will find detailed overviews of the callouts. All lineups for smokes, molotovs and flashbangs are assigned to a specific area of the map and named with the usual callout for that area. We provide the overviews and callouts for the following maps in our app. Click on the images to get a detailed view.

Unity across callouts

It is almost impossible to find unity across all callouts. They vary from national language to community and even within individual teams, which now and then leads to confusion and unnecessary round losses.

Help us to standardize our SmokeBaron callouts as far as possible and make them generally suitable. Give us feedback and suggestions on what you think are wrong or missing callouts.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
