How to learn CS GO map callouts?
Learning CS GO map callouts takes time because there are so many spots to call. Some people like to use calls on their own language but i think players should use English callouts because most players know the English ones so if you change team or if you play matchmaking or pug and your are playing with random players it’s much easier to call and most of people will understand.
I am Portuguese and i play mostly with my Portuguese friends. We talk Portuguese during the game but the calls are made in English and everyone understands them even if it’s not our native language.
So like i said, it takes a lot of time to learn all the callouts but it will help you to become a better player and your mates will be grateful that you know how to properly call.
The good thing is that you can put the CS GO callouts on your CS GO radar so you can learn the callouts while you play.
