CSGO Callouts Guide
Anyone familiar with CSGO and/or CSGO gambling will know that CSGO callouts (CSGO map callouts) are words that refer to various places that are found at various locations on CSGO maps. As soon as you become familiar with these callouts and get to know them, not only should you start progressing more, but you may even start to get better CSGO ranks. CSGO Callouts enable you to tell your teammates either where your opponents are or where you are, and they can give you the same information.
Here are the different types of CSGO map Callouts:
- Mirage map callout
- Cache callout
- Cobblestone callouts
- Dust II callouts
- Inferno map callout
- Nuke callouts
- Overpass callouts
- Train callouts
- Vertigo callouts
The attraction of CS:GO is that it is a team game and in order to be successful you need to work with others – that’s the name of the game. If you are playing with other team members, you need to be able to clearly communicate. You must be able to describe your position on a map and work together to react quickly to whatever your opponent is doing. As a team, you need to come up with tactics and the quicker you can communicate, the better.
This means that to become successful, you need to learn CS:GO callouts just as much as you need to learn about CS:GO maps. Success relies on you investing time to remember important callout terms. This may take time. You should start learning these terms map by map, starting with your preferred map and learn it thoroughly, then move map to map.
Many players opt to learn the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Map Pool to start with. Get to know and understand them on a visual level and then start learning the callouts – and make sure you memorise as much as you can. Then it’s a matter of practice.
Popular CSGO Maps
Above are some of the main callout maps. Every single map is unique with its own callouts that refer to specific locations. However, there are many other maps that it is worth looking over:
Mirage Call Outs
The Mirage is one of the most popular maps in the game and is considered by many as one of the best. Many of the callouts are similar to the previous maps.
Dust 2 Callouts
This is a hugely competitive map, known to many players as Dust II. This has been an original of the Counter-Strike franchise but has been remastered and rejuvenated. The map is well balanced and works well for both teams.
This is not one of the original maps and was added in 2013. The map offers lots of tactical opportunities for both sides. The action takes place in a park and a canal overpass below the park. This is often used in competitions.
Considered by many as the most beautiful of all maps, this is a world set in virtual Italy with cosy rooms and quaint narrow streets. This is the perfect location to brush up on your game skills.
This is a Nuclear Power style map and is based in Russia, with terrorists looking to plant a bomb near nuclear cargo.
This is another nuclear style map, with terrorists looking to plant a bomb in a nuclear power plant. It is unusual in that the bomb sites are located one above the other. It’s a rather small map and favours a variety of playing styles.
This is the most recent of the CSGO maps, added in 2-19. Players get to fight it out on skyscrapers and can fall outside of the map. Because it is relatively new, it isn’t really used on a competitive stage yet.
Understanding CSGO Callouts
It is important to understand CSGO callouts and how they work – and to know that for every map you play, you will need to learn the different callouts and the different locations on each map.
The Main Callouts
These callouts are found on most maps, although all have various locations.
This is where terrorists spawn which is found on various locations of the different maps.
The main entrance from T Spawn to A – also known as T Main, T Con and T Connector.

This is the stairway to the right of the T Spawn that heads up to the B Halls and the B bombsite
This is one of the two entrances onto the B site. It is also known as the Ramp, Lower, Lower B and Lower Ramp
Comparing Map Callouts
There are several callouts for all different maps – and learning them is no easy feat! The Cobblestone Callouts and Cache Callouts are two of the maps that have several callouts. Although some similar callouts are found don’t on each map, the location on the map is usually very different, so it is worth knowing the location on each map. There is no quick fix to learning them all at once. For Example:
