The Counter-Strike franchise has been known for allowing players to create their own various game modes, like Surf.
Throughout its history, people have enjoyed several different modes in the game, like Deathmatch, Deathrun, Gun Games, and Zombie Escape. And one of the biggest game modes that is still hugely popular now is Surf.
We know that playing CS:GO can get pretty frustrating. Not everything always goes your way, or you can simply meet some toxic players who ruin your experience. In these sorts of scenarios, there’s nothing better than just chilling out by surfing.
Surfing relies on strafing on numerous ramps in community-made maps. The goal of Surf maps is to finish them as fast as possible without falling to the ground, though there’s nothing wrong with just laying back and chilling with some music on in the background.
While it sounds simple, Surf is not easy to learn. Players who are new to the game mode often make some mistakes when it comes to strafing, which can cause them to stray away from it.
If you’re one of these players and want to start your adventure, remember not to hold the W button when strafing, and simply use the combination of your A and D buttons with the mouse. After a few tries, you’ll surely get the hang of it.
Since being added to the game in Counter-Strike 1.6, Surf has been evolving and surely will continue to do so, especially with the upcoming Counter-Strike 2.
