I play a lot of Zombie Escape, and there is always a lot of ladder climbing.

What I have noticed however, is that some players climb the ladders faster than others, while others climb it slower.

Is there a trick to this? Is there a certain way to approach the ladder?

The most efficient way to climb up/down a ladder is to face the ladder on an angle (so you are perpendicular to the ladder) and look straight up to the sky then use a combination of the up key with a left/right key to move diagonally on the ladder.

To climb up

Left arm closest to ladder - Strafe left and go forward (default keys: A+W)

Right arm closest to ladder - Strafe right and go forward (default keys: D+W)

To climb down

Left arm closest to ladder - Strafe left and go backward (default keys: D+S)

Right arm closest to ladder - Strafe right and go backward (default keys: A+S)

    +1. It certainly worked in 1.6 and earlier versions. However I'd write Strafe left and go forward instead of HOLD A + W because some players re-assign the controls ;)

  • So does this apply to CSGO and CSS?

    Works in CS + CSS, but since climbing up ladders in CSGO has been made quicker than it's predecessors, it is difficult to speculate whether or not this method works. Commented Oct 27, 2012 at 8:37
  • I've found that not looking straight up, but actually looking at at the ladder in a 45 degree (from straight up) angle makes you quite a bit faster (from a surf map that had a speedometer, might be airaccelerate related though) Commented Oct 27, 2012 at 16:55
