Counter Strike Global Offensive (CS GO) has taken the world by storm since it was released way back almost a decade ago (2012) and became one of the most popular FPS game to date.
Valve Corporation has never ceased to amaze gamers with their superb line up of games, especially the first person shooting games, including Halo, and I can still remember how I used to play the earlier versions of Counter Strike from the earliest versions released more than 2 decades ago, up to what is available today, especially the Counter Strike Global Offensive.
In this article I will be writing a key tutorial on how to do the Bind MouseWheel Jump, which is a great technique beginners and experienced players alike can use in game
What is Bind MouseWheel Jump?
Binding the MouseWheel with Jump is a technique in GS:GO that would make your character jump when you scroll the mouse wheel either up or down.
Many gamers, me included, do use this bind which makes it easier to do a bunny hop (which I will write another article later) which greatly improve your movespeed as you go to roam around the map and position yourself to your desired location.
Reasons Why You Would Bind Mouse Wheel Jump?
The reasons below are mainly based on my personal experience, and preference as well, however, scouring the internet made me realize that I am not alone in this, which makes me believe that binding the MouseWheel Jump is actually a thing for other players too
- Mouse wheel jump provides added option on jumping, in addition to the default jump command using the space bar
- Based on my personal experience, mouse wheel jump makes it easier to execute the bunny hop technique
- Makes the mousewheel button more useful compared when it is used for weapon switch
How to Bind Scroll Wheel and Jump
There are three ways on how you can execute the Bind Mouse Wheel Jump, and I will show it all here in full details, so go ahead and read along
First Method: Developer Console
In this method, we will be typing a console command in the developer console. The developer console is where you can execute several console commands in game to configure certain settings, including binding keys. To access the console, just push the “`” button (normally on the left of the button “1” on keyboard
Make sure your console is enabled
Once you have accessed the console, enter the following:
bind "mwheelup" "+jump"; bind "mwheeldown" "+jump"; bind "space" "+jump"
The command is made up of three parts which is explained further below
bind “mwheelup” “+jump”; This binds the jump command with the mouse scroll wheel. Scroll up the mouse wheel to jump (mwheelup key)
bind “mwheeldown” “+jump”; This binds the jump function with the scroll wheel. Scroll dowm the mouse wheel to jump (mwheeldown key)
bind “space” “+jump” This binds the jump command with the space bar key and makes your character jump when you press the space bar key (this is actually the default command for jump)
Make sure not to forget to include the semi colon “;” when you type the command
Second Method: Modify the Settings
In this method, we will modify the settings and mapping of the default commands.
In order to do this one, open the CS GO settings, then change the mapping of the mouse wheel, then bind the jump function
Third Method: Editing the Config File
This method is done by editing the config file of CS GO. The config file is normally found in one of the folders of the “Steam” main folder. Then look for the one with file name config.cfg You can see below for guidance on where to look for the config file
Open the file in a text editor like notepad then type the following texts
bind "mwheelup" "+jump" bind "mwheeldown" "+jump" bind "space" "+jump"
This binds the jump function to the mouse wheel “permanently” is useful if you don’t want to type the console command every time you log into the game
Other Selective Bind Commands
Bind Jump with Mouse Wheel Up Only
bind "mwheelup" "+jump"
This will make your character jump only when you scroll up the mouse wheel
Bind Jump with Mouse Wheel Down Only
This will make you jump only when you scroll down the mousewheel
bind "mwheeldown" "+jump"
And there you have it. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and learned something worthwhile.
