CS GO Danger Zone Tips – How to win Counterstrike Battle Royale Maps?

Let’s start with the game tips for Danger Zone, try to play calm and to follow these rules to achieve the victory.

1. Prepare and get to know the Danger Zone map called Blacksite

Playing Danger Zone is a bit different compared to normal Counterstrike maps: The map is really really big and you have to be careful, enemies can shot you down from spots you will not even see. You can make use of the developer console to explore the map Blacksite.
Type in: game_type 6; game_mode 0; map dz_blacksite

2. In Danger Zone the landing part is crucial

With the landing zone you choose, you also choose a tactical decision. Land in the crowded spots, where often a lot of loot is waiting and rush fast into the fight if you feel strong in early battles. But you can also easily dodge these areas and move forward slowly to equip and prepare yourself before you fight. If you just started Danger Zone you will see how fast you can die, choose which option is better for you but it is important to get to know the map Blacksite perfectly to be aware of anything that can happen!

3. Don’t take every fight in battle Royale Danger Zone

You are hearing other players firing? Stay calm they will bring themselves down and you can just win by doing nothing in the most cases. What you can actually do is to try to move slowly forward to get behind of someone if you identified his position. Fight forward with open eyes! If you have no equipment or good weapons yet you can’t take a fight at all, running away is the better option! 😀

4. Shoot down the drones to get an advantage

In some game parts it is smart to wait for some opponents who rush into a skirmish and take down each other. While waiting you can bring down Danger Zone drones. On the one hand it is extremely loud to this and your opponents will be able to identify your position, but you can get awesome supplies with a bit luck. In the game part after 2-3 minutes the map is still big and you got a good chance to bring down a drone safely. You can throw the tablet on the ground before getting the loot, so that the enemies will not see your position.

5. Using Weapons right & enough Ammo is key to win games

As the ammo in Danger Zone is quite limited, it is a ressource that you should take care of. Everytime you got a weapon check the ammo and before taking a fight you always have to know how much ammo is left! If you find new weapons it is smarter to use that one that has more ammo. Each weapon is strong at something, always change your tactical behaviour according to a weapon. With an AK-47 or M4 you don’t have to fight close 1on1s, better use the range. With SMGs a closer ranged can win you the fight.

6. Use the map to cover and camp

Move around safe, use the natural cover, buildings trees and tall grass. (Be careful tall grass can be burned down by fire bombs.) Don’t run around all the time, always reach a new safe spot and wait a bit, check all directions and get a good overview about what is happening on the map and near you.

7. Be careful with the red explosive barrels!

Be careful with the red barrels, if you are in a fight never move to the red barrels! Bullets that hit the red barrels cann lead to a huge explosion with a large area of effect. Use the red barrels for your advantage and hit them if enemies are near!

8. Use the Danger Zone tablet & hexagons right

If a hexagon on the in-game tablet is yellow, it means an enemy is inside of that zone. Your hexagon, the one you are in, is of course always yellow. This can get really useful if you are in the mid game, check the tablet regularly to get the perfect overview.
