CS2 Nuke HE Grenades

CS2 Nuke HE Grenades

One well-placed HE grenade can inflict a ton of damage to multiple opponents and even kill several if one of your teammates has already shot them. To help you on your way toward becoming a better CS2 player, here are some of the top HE grenade lineups you must know on Nuke.

Best CS2 Nuke HE Grenades

Trophy From Ramp (Smoke Clearing)

As you might have realized by now, you can also use HE grenades to clear smokes for a moment so you can see and shoot through them. We'll start this guide with the lineup used to clear the smoke in the Trophy Room, allowing you to catch your enemies off-guard. For this lineup, stand close to the right railing of the Ramp, aim at the spot shown in the image below, and do a left-click throw.

Squeaky Door From Lobby

Use this HE grenade lineup fast A-Site executes. Since it destroys the Squeaky door, you'll be able to see through if anyone's holding in front of you and also push through without alerting your opponents with the squeaky sound. Start by standing on the right corner of the lobby door, aim at the steel bar on the roof as shown below, and do a left-click throw.

Silo From Outside Main

A common spot AWPers like to hold is the top of the giant Silo. To take care of that player and maybe even kill them if they're low, stand next to the edge of the wall with the giant "A" on it, align your crosshair according to the images below, and do a left-click throw.

Silo From Rafters

Speaking of Silo, here's another lineup you can use to HE grenade the AWPer on top of it. Your teammates trying to push through the Outside A Main area will thank you for learning this lineup. Stand in the corner of the Rafters area, align your crosshair as shown below, and do a left-click throw. Make sure the window is broken.

Vent Drop From Heaven

Here's another HE grenade lineup used to clear a smoke. Like the previous lineup, this one would prove more beneficial for your teammates because of how far it lands. Simply stand on the left side of the heaven door, aim at the edge of the sticker on the bridge, and do a left-click throw.

Dark From Bottom Ramp

Now, let's move on to the bottom portion of the map. While beginners usually don't go toward this area, a ton of combat happens at this part of the map at higher ranks, so it's best to learn a few lineups for here as well. The first lineup in this area is for "Dark," a spot players almost always forget to clear. To do that with one HE grenade, stand next to the metal structure at the left portion of the bottom ramp area, aim at the spot where an imaginary horizontal line from the top part of the Fire Extinguisher sign meets the edge of the wall toward the right, and do a left-click throw.

Doors From Dark Top

Finally, here's a lineup you can use to HE grenade players holding the area behind the door, waiting for someone to plant so they can jump out and kill them. Stand in front of the railing at the top of Dark, aim at the spot shown in the image below, and do a left-click throw.
