All Mirage Callouts

Mirage comes in after Dust II as perhaps the most iconic bomb defusal map in CS:GO. It is set in a middle-eastern town, which is thought to be Morroco, and is one of the most commonly played maps by CS:GO players. It is generally agreed by the community that Mirage lends its favor as being a CT-sided map, and is a map that has been present for a long time in the Counter-Strike series, despite being added to CS:GO shortly after the game's release.

Callout Name Callout Description
Mid The open, expansive Middle section of the map. Sniper's Nest has a complete view of Mid, as does Top Mid where the Terrorists enter the area from.
B Site B Site refers to the location on B at which you can plant the bomb.
A Site The A Bombsite. Typically this callout just refers to the sector of the Site where the bomb can actually be planted, as the other areas all have their own callouts.
T Spawn The area of the map where the Terrorists spawn.
T Roof The raised ledge outside of A Ramp, closest to T Spawn, that is often used by the Ts to wait for pushes through A Ramp or to line up smoke grenades for the A Bombsite.
A Ramp The primary entrance onto the A Site from T Spawn. Recognizable from it's arched entrance/exit.
Palace The building that can be used to enter A from T Spawn. It's typically used to pincer the A Site in conjuction with A Ramp.
Pillars These are the Pillars inside of Palace that can be used to duck and hide behind.
Balcony The wooden balcony that extends from Palace to give a wide view of the A Site. The callout for anyone underneath this balcony is "Shadows".
Shadows The small area underneath the Balcony by Palace. It is pitched in darkness, which is why it's called Shadows. Use this callout to refer to someone underneath the balcony, and "Balcony" to refer to someone on top of it.
Tetris The stack of boxes and square stone clusters just in front of A Ramp. This callout refers to anyone on these boxes - whether they're tucked behind the wall and not visible from A Site or if they're fully exposed.
Sandwich The small alcove between Stairs and Tetris next to the A Bombsite.
Stairs The set of stairs on the A Bombsite next to Connector and Jungle. This can be used to give a good vantage point for the CTs to defend the A Site from.
Firebox The small cubby on A Site that players can hide behind in the hopes they aren't checked by the opposing team. Named due to the fact that it is most commonly cleared by an easy-to-throw molotov or incendiary.
Ninja A small alcove between two stacks of boxes on the A Bombsite that is often left unchecked if the Terrorists don't attack the Site from Mid.
CT This callout is similar to CT Spawn, but most generally covers the entrance to the A Bombsite from CT Spawn, next to Ticket Booth and Trash. As this is frequently used as a position to defend the A Site from, it needs its own callout from CT Spawn. So when referring to the position you can watch the A Site from, use the callout "CT". Sometimes you'll hear CT Spawn and CT be interchanged to refer to either where the CTs actually spawn, and the defensive position on A by Ticket Booth.
Ticket Booth The tall, grey column by CT Spawn that faces the A Bombsite. This can be jumped onto to see over smoke grenades, and is a favorite spot for a lot of AWPers.
Trash The trash can on the other side of CT Spawn, facing the A Bombsite, to Ticket Booth. This can be jumped on top of, which will hide the player's body from anyone on A unless they purposefully check it.
CT Spawn The area where the CTs spawn each round. Sometimes you'll hear CT Spawn and CT be interchanged to refer to either where the CTs actually spawn, and the defensive position on A by Ticket Booth.
Jungle The spot of ground away from Sniper's Nest and Connector that gives a player vision onto A.
Connector The short tunnel that connects Mid to the A Site. It's entrance on the A side leads straight to Stairs on the left, the A Bombsite straight ahead and Jungle on the right.
