Cache Callouts in CSGO/CS2

Cache is a bomb defusal map that debuted in Counter-Strike: Source around a decade ago, crafted by Sal "Volcano" Garozzo. The Counter-Strike map is situated in Chernobyl, Ukraine. Despite the lovely sunny weather, the map exudes a very subdued ambience - thanks to its plethora of grey buildings and bunkers. Unlike many other CS:GO maps, Cache offers a relatively balanced gameplay experience for both Terrorists and Counter-Terrorists, albeit slightly favouring the CTs in high-level matches.

Cache Callouts in 2024

In Cache, the map’s callouts are relatively straightforward compared to others. The main pathways to sites, namely A-main and B-main, are wide open, which makes them pretty simple to memorize. However, the sites themselves feature numerous props with specific names.

Ts primarily access the A site through A-main or via A-long to squeaky door, while they can navigate through B-main to reach checkers for additional angles to attack the site.

Mid control is essential for Ts to apply pressure. By securing mid, they can block rotations between sites via CT halls and gain sightlines on the A site from sandbags or by accessing checkers through the vent.

Another important aspect of Cache is the CT side’s ability to attack from elevated positions. On the A site, CTs can use the balcony and the Michael “shroud” Grzesiek boost spot to gain beneficial angles on A main. Similarly, Heaven on the B site offers a great vantage point, allowing players to jump onto B site boxes or the light overlooking the exit from checkers.
