Many players, professional and casual, frequently bind their mousewheel scroll to jump. The use of this button first arose in earlier iterations of the game due to it making bunnyhopping much easier than using the traditional spacebar key. While bunnyhopping has been increasingly nerfed over the years, the use of the scroll wheel has proliferated. Many players now use this button out of preference alone.
It is incredibly simple to set this bind up, simply enter the following 3 commands into the console. If you don’t want to have to enter these into the console every time you play the game, you can enter these into your config instead.
The mousewheel jump bind comprises of three separate commands. Each of the individual commands are entered into the console together, but are separated by a semi colon. The first command binds jump to mousewheel up, the second binds jump to mousewheel down, and the third binds jump to the spacebar. By entering all three of these commands it is possible to jump using mousewheel up, down, and also using the spacebar too
