Introduction Sounds are an important game mechanic in CS:GO, as hearing various sounds in game such as footsteps, weapon pickups and even switching fire modes, can give away your or the enemy's position.
So having headphones on and most importantly having sound on in-game will give you an advantage on knowing where the enemy is and what they are currently doing.
Although you can use sounds to trick the enemy (For example fake defusing or planting).
However in CS:GO doesn't really tell you which sounds the enemy can hear and what sounds ONLY you can hear.
So hopefully this guide can cover pretty much all of the sounds in-game.
Sounds that the enemy can hear Running on any surface including water
Running up a ladder
Picking up items while running; such as weapons, bombs, nades, defuse kits.
Reloading your weapon (Although quick switching does help in reducing sounds from being played out and it also makes you look cool and stylish, just like me) It turns out that reloading your gun and quick switching DOES not stop the reloading sound, it will still play out.
However you can use this to fake reload in order to make the enemy rush you, thinking that you have ran out of ammo.
Kinda thanks to the new update that makes a horrible clicking noise (Even on silenced weapons) everytime you shoot when you are low on bullets.
Shooting your weapon
Scoping/Zooming in a rifle (Such as the AWP, AUG/SG 553, SSG 08, SCAR-20/G3SG1)
Switching fire modes on the Glock or the Famas
Planting the bomb (Although the initiation sound is played out loud, only you can hear the sounds of typing in the bomb code)
Defusing the bomb (Regardless if you have kit or not)
Single jumping while standing Still
Jumping multiple times while standing still (Only the first jump is played out, other jumps onwards are not)
Jumping multiple times while moving
Jumping onto a higher plane while running
Dropping down from a higher plane
Taking hostages (Regardless if you have kit or not)
Dropping your weapon
Swapping your weapon for another weapon that is on the ground
