In a nutshell, do you want to jump using the mouse wheel? In CS:GO, here’s how to bind the scroll wheel to jump.

If you’ve ever played Counter-Strike 1.6 or CS:S, you’ll remember the trick of binding the jump to the scroll. It was a big help at the time in both bunnyhopping and simultaneous jumping and crouching. Both things aren’t as simple in CS:GO, but the bind is still useful and allows you to jump more efficiently.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to bind the mouse wheel to jump. We must use the commands to accomplish this (using the console or editing the cfg file).

Is it worthwhile to use the mouse wheel jump bind?

Both yes and no. There are several reasons why players in CS:GO choose to bind jump to the scroll wheel. Some of them believe that they can’t bunnyhop without this bind. Others claim that using these commands allows them to play better and feel more relaxed.

So, is it worthwhile? In reality, everything is determined by a person’s genetic predispositions. While some players will notice a difference when they set the CS:GO bhop bind, others will notice no difference.

The following are some of the reasons why players bind the scroll wheel to jump:

  • According to experienced players, mouse wheel jumping improves visual-motor coordination and makes bunny hopping easier.
  • Some people believe that setting up the mouse scroll wheel jump bind gives them more ‘freedom’ than jumping on a space.
  • A small percentage of players use the space bar for other purposes (for example, voice chat) and have jump on mouse scroll wheel enabled.

The best bunnyhoppers suggest using the spacebar for regular jumping and the mouse wheel for bunny hop. Air strafing left and right (with the A and D keys) is required for proper bunnyhopping. It’s too difficult to air strafe and hit the spacebar at the same time.

In CS:GO, how do you bind jump to the scroll wheel?

Enter the following three commands in the console to be able to jump in CS:GO by scrolling up and down or using the spacebar:

bind “mwheelup” “+jump”; bind “mwheeldown” “+jump”; bind “space” “+jump”

You can put it in your config file if you don’t want to add it every time you start a game:

bind “mwheelup” “+jump”

bind “mwheeldown” “+jump”

bind “space” “+jump”

It might be a better idea to add the above-mentioned commands to the configuration. You’ll save time because you won’t have to copy this bind to the console every time you launch the game.

Other methods for binding the scroll wheel to jump

The bind mousewheel jump, like most binds and scripts in CS:GO, has several different variations that you can use.

You are not required to use the default variation. You can only add a jump for one button at a time. You only need to copy one command from the bind above.

Other ways to bind a jump in CS:GO are as follows:

Only the mouse scrolls up.

Use this to jump only by scrolling upwards:

bind “mwheelup” “+jump

Only the mouse can scroll down.

Use this to scroll down to the bottom of the jump using only scrolling:

bind “mwheeldown” “+jump”

only the spacebar

To revert to your default jump setting and unbind jump on scroll, do the following:

bind “space” “+jump”; bind “mwheelup” “invprev”; bind “mwheeldown” “invnext”
