Yeah, I know-- I've been really lazy updating this FAQ.
But I suppose you can't blame me either. With CS updates releases almost every
and the amount of time I spend playing the game left me with little or no time
all to update this project of mine. I guess since CS has finally got that darn
up and running and the game has finally hit the retail shelves, I've got to do

Anyways, I re-wrote the whole darn thing since a lot has of things has changed
regarding the game's look, feel and more. Besides, the fact that I've been spend
'til 8am (that's more than 5 hours of CS immersion=one hard, stiff shoulder for

more tips on how you could survive a round or two of Counter-Strike without
your ass blown up by that annoying HE grenade.

: Who are the Terrorists?


So it's your first time to play this game, and you know what you're doing
because you've played other shoot-`em ups before, right? Well, here's some few
pointers to help you start off that career in urban combat, without the messy
of neophyte kill rates and the "sir yes sir" atrocities of military boot camps.

> Section 1.1: Breathing, you're a target. Stop moving, you'll end up a dead

The lesson here is plain and simple: whether you're on the Terrorists' side or
the Counter-Terrorists, whatever weapon you have on you, you have to get moving.
Bullets have a funny way of reaching their target, intentional or not. Never
around in the same place if you want to survive and win each round. If you're
difficulty zeroing on a moving target, so does your enemy.
Since the PC monitor doesn't actually match a real man's field of vision,
moving around keeps your eye attached at those little details which could mean
points for you in long games: like the burst fire of a far away Artic equipped
You should also make it a habit to strafe while firing at a moving target.
Its really assuring to know that whether or not you're facing multiple opponents
at once, they would have trouble with a very nasty, hard to frag opponent(that's
supposed to be you).
But what if you're carrying those heavy, hard-to-move with rifles? Then switch
weapons with your other hand, switch back and forth between knife, the pistol
your primary weapon. Keep your firing hand on the mouse and the cross hairs on
target, then strafe in random patterns. Never jump while strafing, since jumping
will reduce your movement to half-step, whether left or right.
| What weapon should I choose? | |
+==============================+ |
| Unlike other Half-Life games, CS takes into factor the |
| importance of a weapon's weight in affecting the player's |
| overall moving capacity and speed. Knives and grenades are the |
| lightest weapons, followed by handguns. Shotguns are considered |
| lighter than submachine guns because they lack a magazine that |
| hold huge amount of ammo. In fact, this is why submachine guns |
| and rifles are heavy-- they need bigger, heavier parts and |
| casings to handle the damage and rate of fire this weapons are |
| designed for. |
| |
| Here's their order of priority, starting with the lightest |
| on top, the heaviest at the bottom: ("<=>" means equal) |
| |
| Combat Knife <=> Grenades |
| |
| H&K USP .45 Pistol <=> Glock18 Select Fire |
| Sig Five-Seven |
| Desert Eagle <=> Sig P228 <=> Double Beretta |
| Benelli M3 Super 90 <=> Benelli XM1014 |
| |
| Ingram MAC-10 |
| H&K MF5-Navy <=> Steyr Tactical Machine |
| FN P90 <=> H&K UMP 45 |
| |
| AK-47 <=> H&K G3/SG-1 Sniper |
| Steyr AUG |
| Colt M4A1 Carbine <=> Steyr Scout |
| Sig SG-550 Commando <=> AI Artic Warfare Magnum |
| |
| FN M249 PARA 5750 |
| |
| If your primary weapon is causing you to slow down, and you |
| think you're vulnerable-- switch to your pistol or knife using |
| your other hand. Make sure that you keep a hand at your mouse, |
| using a free hand to switch back and forth your weapons, as well |
| as move around. |
| |
| You should also consider the damage and the rate of fire of |
| the weapon you're choosing. For example, rifles have |
| `automatic' rate of fire-- all you have to do is press the fire |
| button until the ammo in the magazine runs out and it |
| automatically change; & manual fire-- where your character stop |
| to load another bullet to his gun's chamber. This is why your |
| sniper's scope view zooms out while using the Artic or Steyr |
| Scout and not while using the Carbine, Commando, and G3/SG-1 |
| Sniper rifles. |
| |
| While you might think automatic rifles have distinct advantage |
| over manual load rifles, this is where the amount of damage |
| factor comes in. Since the automatic rifles are designed to |
| pump out more bullets per second than other rifles are, their |
| punching power is not quite as good and constant with each |
| bullet it fires. |
| |
| This means you need more than a few hits on your target before |
| they get fragged. This `automatic' feature also results in a |
| nasty recoil which shakes the crosshair up a little with each |
| fire. Not a good thing if you're strafing and dodging bullets |
| yourself. The Carbine is the only rifle which suppress this |
| recoil effect, but punching power is sacrificed in the process. |
| |
| Here's their order of priority, starting with the weapon |
| having the highest damage on top, with the lightest |
| damage at the bottom. |
| |
| AI Artic <=> Direct hit HE grenade |
| Knife <=> Steyr Scout <=> Medium blast HE grenade |
| |
| FN M249 PARA 5750 |
| |
| H&K G3/SG-1 Sniper |
| Sig SG-550 Commando <=> Colt M4A1 Carbine |
| Steyr AUG |
| AK-47 <=> Benelli M3 Super 90 <=> Benelli XM1014 |
| |
| FN P90 <=> H&K UMP45 |
| H&K MF5-Navy |
| Steyr Tactical Machine <=> Ingram MAC-10 |
| |
| Desert Eagle |
| Sig P228 <=> FN Five-Seven <=> Double Beretta |
| H&K USP .45 Pistol <=> Glock18 Select Fire |
| |
| Shotguns and the lone machine gun are amazing crowd-control |
| weapons which cuts down a mass of opponents in no time. But |
| they lack the authority Artic rifles and other rifles bring. |
| Shotguns are fearsome upclose, but a opponent backing up can |
| frag any anyone with a shotgun in a considerable range. |
Against an experienced sniper, switch to your knife then zig-zag your way
him. If you've played MechWarrior games before, circle the enemy, while firing
with a pistol, shotgun, even a knife-- but never a rifle or a machinegun.
Nevermind the fact that you have to shoot down an unaware target, and they
calling you "back fighter". There's nothing cooler than to watch a shootout
to a mere "rubout"-- someone distracts the opponent while the other sneaks up
with knife in hand, and an evil grin on his face.

> Section 1.2: My buddy is my body. <
Always pair off with somebody prior to an actual encounter. Two moving targets
moving in random patterns are difficult targets for almost all type of weapons--
especially the rifle equipped sniper.
| Should I turn the `Friendly Fire' option off? | |
+===============================================+ |
| The Friendly Fire option is there as an option to give players |
| as much realism as legally and technologically possible. |
| Turning it off, provides an oppurtunity to kid off with your |
| team mates without any harm or damage. It also allows you to be |
| a little careless when pulling that trigger even when you have a |
| team mate in front of you. Unchecking the "Friendly Fire" |
| equals more fun. |
| |
| Turning on this option, is for serious gamers only. I think |
| LAN game tournaments should strictly enforce this option, since |
| this really increases the level of gameplay. |
Since you're either tailing or leading a pair, remember not to "line-up" up
anyone-- no matter where you think the bullet/s would be coming from. The Artic
has the ablility to pierce through from one end of the map to the other end. I
found out that if you got people "sandwiched" in between two opposing forces
skirmishes, that guy is good as dead. Even if the friendly fire option is off,
teammates "accidentally" firing into another teammate while the opponent is
firing at
it also, leaves the third person-- the one sandwiched in between, a ghost.
Remember, the faster you could kill with a weapon without sacrificing the
mobility and comfort in handling that gun, the better the chances you'd end up
with a
better score.

> Section 1.3: Practice the Art of "One-Shot Kills" <
It takes considerable team wins and kills to rack off enough dough to buy the
rifle. If you're planning to train yourself to be a sniper, acquaint yourself
with this weapon. Find how can you use it with efficiency, and use it's weakness
your advantage.
One good advice is to first learn on when pull the trigger. Sounds weird, but
seen to many people get fragged on end games because they thought they've got
target on their crosshairs. Unfortunately for them, when they were actually
reloading, that's the time they got hit.
Wherever you can, use those dark areas in the map where visibility is low, but
there's enough space to strafe and move around. But as I always say: "Never stay
put in one position for too long."
| Should I turn the `Auto Aim' option off? | |
+===========================================+ |
| If the server got the autoaim on, go somewhere else. The |
| autoaim screws your actual aim, making it very difficult for you |
| to frag somebody at a distance. It suppose to work by sucking in |
| the cross hairs when it comes near a target, but you really don't |
| need it. (it works well when your targets are up close, but by |
| then you don't need help hitting a large target any more.) |
Learn how to frag people at distances of over 30 meters without using the 4x
if available. That saves you time from fumbling for buttons to push while you're
dodging bullets and fragging another person.
Learn how to switch weapons, if the situation demands for it. And if an
is actually chipping your life away while getting close, back away. And back
If you're being attacked in an open field, lead the aggressor to a narrow
corridor or alley. That way you can guess where he's going to come from, and
anticipate by moving your crosshairs to that direction. If the enemy have the
advantage of being on a high ground, HE grenade him to death, or take cover in
someplace perpendicular to his location. He'll have a hard time aiming that

There's nothing really hard in hitting your target, even if your moving
If he's approaching you to take advantage of your weapon's weakness, don't use
the scope and wait his animation become big enough for you to hit, maybe at 10
meters. When he moves in closer than that, use your handgun.
Switching weapons enable you to move without feeling heavy with your Artic. You
could also remind yourself not to repeat your strafing pattern, and to include
crouching movements and even use a 3D dimensional enviroment to your advantage.
Sometimes people tend to forget the objects in 3D have depth, and using this tip
could help you frag people behind door and walls, above and below buildings, and
especially while on the move.
And there's one thing: adjust to a higher mouse sensitivity whenever you equip
yourself with the Artic. That helps alot in zeroing on a target 50 meters away
and on the move, since you need so little mouse movement to adjust your

> Section 1.4: Cheat whilst you can. <
Having to cheat your way through this game is pretty easy, since as of this faq
version, CS is still in beta. Almost all the maps contain some sort of bug
everyone CT or Terrorist, can take advantage.
For example, Terrorists have the distinct advantage in some maps where the
forces the CS deep into its opponent's home court. The advantage lies in the
that a) Terrorists can reload their armor, ammo and grenades if the battle is
into their homecourt; b) Since CT have to move into a much smaller space,
have a disadvantage against strafers; and c) it's hard to coordinate a well-
tactical strike-- especially over the internet based games.
Cheating doesn't really have to be entering a bunch of codes to gain advantage,
using every trick in book to gain some.
| Are you `Trigger Happy'? | |
+==========================+ |
| Most CS beginners tend to misuse the automatic weapons-- guns |
| which wait all the bullets in the magazine to be fired before |
| being reloaded then chambered. What they do is spray off bullets |
| at the opponent's direction and pray that they frag them first. |
| One observation-- once they pull trigger, they never let go, even |
| if they're firing at air. Most of time, it doesn't end that way. |
| |
| The lesson here is that accuracy is very important, make sure |
| that all the bullets you've fired counts. If both of you are |
| strafing and firing at each other at circles, take the necessary |
| action to put a stop at it. Most of my opponents online always |
| wonder why I always frag them first even if they're equipped with |
| a much powerful weapon(MP5-Navy vs Commando) even at long |
| distances. |
| |
| Don't waste your bullets firing at nothing, and someday you'll |
| thank yourself for breaking the habit. |
Low on cash to actually buy an Artic? Buy a reliable handgun, load up on spare
ammo, armor and grenades. Then go on a kamikaze strike using the Flashbangs as a
diversion, then use the HE to chip away their health, then finish off with some
placed "head shots". This strategy works better with a team mate leading the
since you could use the help on firepower. You might find some good guns
the "fallen ones" might have left behind.
Aside from scavenging for weapons, use the hostages as bait. Whether you're a
CT or
Terrorist, those hostages provide good cover on one on one firefights. Remember,
you kill an hostage, that's a whopping deduction to your cash count. But if you
make the enemy kill the hostage instead of you, you're good and he's pissed off.
Speaking of head shots, keep an automatic weapon at head level while firing
strafing at the same time. All the submachine guns are good for this purpose;
high rate of fire makes it sure you could place some hits at the head area.

> Section 1.5: It doesn't hurt to camp, just don't get caught napping <
One of the main lessons of camping is that you never camp alone. You may frag a
couple while in the process, but it's a slim assurance of the win if you're up
against a bundle.
What are the best weapons to take to your camping trip? Well, the Artic AWP
most votes out there, especially if you consider yourself a natural dead-eye.
Benelli Super 90 seems a good choice, 'coz you'd likely to have wounded
wielding broken kevlar. Other sniping 'assault' rifles are okay; just stay clear
AWP opponents over really-long distances.
Get yourself a Desert Eagle, too. If you're camping on a budget, the Eagle is a
weapon to have around before you take on a shopping trip (that is, salvage
yourself a
good primary weapon like those mentioned above).
Another good camping trip, requires the perennial camper a good location. In
case lettme give out a few examples. In de_dust map, the CT deployment area is
such area. In de_aztec, it's the courtyard area fronting the wooden doors to the
and right, the dark corridor to the right, and of course the big all crate set
diagonal position. Both the CT and Terrorist deployment grounds here are bad
to camp into, since there's no place in there you could frag all your you
without compromising your position.
| When 'camping', HE grenades are a must. Full-armor kevlars are |
| good buys too. |

I've updated the early versions of this FAQ's section and combined the weapon
and strategies. Since I expect this FAQ to grow in dimension pending the retail
release of Counter-Strike, It would be easier to add more weapons as they come.
And oh, you can obtain more detailed background info on the guns themselves
playing a VGUI(that vee-gooey) game.

: Section 2.1) Handguns -secondary weapon-
is one of your two standard issue weapons. Handguns are in a specific
class which deals large amounts of damage at close range. They are light
accurate up to 20 meters, and has very high priority at about 2 to 5 meters.
also carry small magazines, and it must be made a habit to reload them
and after encounters. Damage is reduced with increasing range, but accuracy is
high due the weapon's light and easy handling.

Weapons analysis: Personally, the H&K .45 is my weapon of choice (for now) b'coz
suck at the Terrorist's handgun of choice-- the Glock18. While yes, the Glock18
have more bullets (that's 20 against the Tactical Pistol's 12 or against
available in CS for that matter) there's some factors that made me swing in
this handgun's side.
First is damage power per bullet per hit. The Tactical has superb punching
againt the Glock18, which has the selectable 'Burst Fire' mode to compensate for
that. But the Tactical Pistol does better with its choice of .45 bullets that
performs well-- without the silencer.

Weapon Strategy: This weapon's main advantage above the Glock18 is its ability
inflict more damage per bullet ratio. Aim the weapon along the lines of the
shoulder blade. For long range sniping, the active crosshairs help in fragging
opponents, and suppress the urge to unload the clip in a heartbeat.
Use the weapon's suppressor whenever doing this, since the accuracy is a little
better. Since handguns doesn't inflict that much damage over long distances,
the opponent is key rather than chipping them to death.
Against multiple opponents, unload your weapon on the nearest target, duck for
to reload; then run away facing the nearest opponent while firing. Jumping
too, but only against opponents with handguns.

Other notes: The H&K .45 seems to lose some of its punching power when equipped
the suppressor accessory. Why equip with the suppressor? Well, it makes the shot
accurate at distances. It also aids a little in getting those 'headshots,' which
exactly the point of all this handgun training.

Weapons analysis: Burst mode means that the Glock18 fires three bullets at a
This reduces the number of shots per clip to 7, as against to the H&K .45's 12
per clip. While the weapon's power doesn't comper much against the ferocity of
Desert Eagle, this weapon is effective when used by long-time players in the
games-- when everyone is probably without kevlar protection.

Weapon Strategy: I would tell handgun users to strafe a lot while firing, coz
their one main advantage against every other novice to "oh-you-jumped-in-
and-surprised-me" high caliber weapon. Burst Mode fires 3 shots is one trigger
pull, kinda like an automatic weapon. The feature makes up for the lack of
power, and it rips up kevlar pretty good.
Remember that you are more likely to unload a clip faster than any other weapon
whenever the Glock18 is in "burst mode". Try this little tip: use the semi-
mode to initial hit your target, then switch to burst fire when you that
indicating you just hit your opponent.
At semi-automatic mode, this weapon is less than a match against any other
You can have clips that can run up to 20 per clip, 120 bullets total though, so
be shy in firing away at this mode.

Other Notes: It's good to remind yourself to always the Glock18 while steady, it
seems really ineffective when used as a strafing weapon. It's really hard
when you miss with all three bullets while in "Burst Mode" since the short puse
seems to follow is an invitation to trouble everytime.

Weapon Analysis: The Desert Eagle is a kick-ass handgun that has one glaring
it's 7 bullet per clip stat. Sure it can go through some wall, crates and
to frag an opponent. That cool, considering that even the esteemed FN P90 can't
through a wooden door. This handgun is also more than a much against the MP5 at
extremely close range.

Weapon Strategy: Ah, the good ole Desert Eagle. Fire it at point blank, make
aim wherever it hits.

Other notes: Always partner this handgun with the Artic AWP, if you're not a
with your primary weapon at extremely close range. Three direct hits from this
at point blank are enough to stop that pesky MP5er.

Weapon Analysis: I have found this handgun to be a very reliable weapon,
during skirmishes still early in the game. The rate of fire is fairly decent,
a better alternative than your standard issue weapons. If you're thinking of
an early lead on scores, make this weapon a habit; if not the buying HE

Weapon Strategy: The Desert Eagle suffers a bit in accuracy when firing at
at a distance. This weapon has better stopping power at long distance firefights
because it performs better while the moving sideways. This makes the opponent

out of any incoming bullets.

Weapon analysis: A good weapon for all those John Woo fans who wanna do it like
Castor Troy (Nicholas Cage/John Travolta flick Face/Off). Not for those who has
habit of reloading often :). Anyways, this weapon bites(a lot) when aiming at a
at about 15 meters, and improves as the target get closer. Damage per bullet hit
pretty sad at about 8-10 meters. But this weapon remains a sure deal if you want
frag in style.

Weapon Strategy: When equipped with this weapon, remind your self not to reload
if you clip is below 5 bullets of something. It's hard to underestimate this
really long reload delay, and it's always fatal if you find yourself in the
middle of
a firefight while reloading the damn thing.
When firing your Double Beretta, keep it at bursts of 5 or less, to keep the
accuracy and the hits up. And just like it's 9mm handgun counterpart-- the
keep the crosshairs at your opponents shoulder area to rack up those head shots.

Weapon Analysis: Not much could be said about the FN5-7 except that it's suppose
be an equalizer of sorts when up against the Desert Eagle, or the even the
Beretta. It's feel while aiming at high mouse sensitivity gives it a much higher
priority than the CT standard issue-- the H&K .45 because it delivers slightly
damage per bullet hit plus it has 20 ammo to boot.

Weapon Strategy:

: Section 2.2) Shotguns -primary weapon-
Are weapons made to provide maximum damage for close quarter combat involving
multiple targets. It has pellets for bullets, which scatter in varying
hitting anything in its path. This weapon is suitable for use in narrow
rooms, and against submachine wielding beginner type opponent-- it has the

Weapon Analysis: The Super 90 shotgun packs a lot of punch per round of
shot. Each shot fired takes a second to chamber in another ammo, and to some
who are used to automatic weapons dishing with high rate of fire this feature
be down right annoying. But wait, this shotgun require minimum skill in accuracy
firing at any range, since it's spread shot assures a hit as long as its used at
direction of the target. The shotgun's concussive damage is enough to frag
at 5 meters or less if they forgot their kevlar protection, and the spread shot
enough help for anyone who wants to aim at an opponents head and get away with

Weapon Strategy: The Super 90 shotgun lacks priority when it comes to "strafe"
friendly objects like the MP5 or the Steyr AUG. One tip to follow when firing at
situation is to run and head for immediate cover, and wait out 'til he runs out
ammo. Submachine guns and other assault rifles tend to empty themselves in a
or two. Your Super 90 also has no chance against sniping opponents who are in
door openings and obstacles. This weapon is a must for maps with extremely
spaces, like the Vegas and the Resident Evil maps.

Weapon Analysis: The MP5 is the most recognizable short arms weapon in the
world today. With hundreds of variations and appearance in international
films, it's obvious why the MP5 has remained both Ct and Terro favorite. First
fact that the MP5 can deliver results in almost any possible scenario where
is important and strafing is a must. The MP5 also delivers excellent accuracy at
almost all distances. The rate of fire is better, making it an excellent spray
of choice that can guarantee head shots whenever, where ever.

Weapon Strategy: Try to take advantage of the MP5's mobility by including skills
firing while jumping; firing while executing random strafing patterns; point
firefights won by suddenly crouching and long range sniping while firing at
mode. Take care not to take out against long range opponents carrying the AUG or
Commando, or engage opponents in close quarters equipped with the AK or the

Weapons Analysis: When I first started playing CS, this is the first gun I'd
regularly go out and buy. It has plenty of ammo, have a really insane power and
of fire similar to a machine gun and aims well while strafing. This weapon has
problem though, its shaky recoil.
The FN P90's design makes it obvious that it tries to solve that problem by
the second handle perpendicular to its nozzle. That way, it's supposed to stop
shaking, enough for you to get a decent shot. But by the time you have, you're
so low in ammo you have to duck behind cover and reload.
FN P90 have distinct advantage against players using assault rifles upclose,
especially the Commando and AK-47 rifles. While the FN P90 lacks the power of
longer guns, it has more ammo in its magazine(50/Reload) against the 30 or so
that the rifles have. And since rifles are designed to be fire at a stationary
position, this submachine gun can out flank rifles anytime.

Weapon Strategy: When the FN P90 is an exceptional melee weapon of sorts the is
effective against up to two opponent at a time.

Weapon Analysis: The MAC-10 is a pretty decent weapon similar in design with the
P90. It's magazine loading with .45 caliber rating-- which means it has the
power of the H&K pistol. It does have this nasty recoil effect which makes it an
underdog against my all time fave, the H&K Navy submachine gun. In fact, the
in my place have a hard time adjusting to the weapon, but maybe it's all
psychological or something.
Overall, it's a fairly decent and inexpensive weapon which deals a little
damage than the Steyr Tactical but still isn't at par with the FN P90 in terms
all-around punching power.

Weapon Strategy: As the constant MP5 user, I'm almost always victimized by the
Ingram's better damage at point blank. One thing to remember about this weapon
never attempt to use this to spray against multiple enemies, because this gun
perform much when rate of fire is concerned. This means if you fired the weapon
left to right automatically, the gaps between the bullet holes with be
wide. Better stick to burst of 3 or more ammo, and to your target's upper body

always aim for the head. This baby's rate of fire is slow, like 1 round every

| How does Kevlar Armor work? | |
+=============================+ |
| It's funny how a piece of cloth could provide some protection |
| against a piece of metal propelled many times the speed of sound. |
| Yes, that's exactly what kevlar does, it resists the penetration |
| of bullets. Exactly how, you might ask? |
| |
| The principle behind it is fairly simple, stop the bullet by |
| absorbing the energy that makes the bullet move in the first |
| place. It's strength is behind its design, it stretches like a |
| trampolin mat with someone jumping on top of it. Instead of |
| actually stopping the bullet like a brick wall, it absorbs the |
| kinetic energy of a speeding bullet. No energy, no motion. |
| |
| That's why it still chips away health points when it hits you. |
| Even though the kevlar stops the bullets from punching a hole into |
| your body, it won't stop a rain of lead from beating the crap out |
| of you. In real life, you could get bruises and even break a rib |
| from getting hit with too many bullets at the same time. |
| |
| Shotguns are "one-shot" killers at 2m or less. Note that your |
| the integrity of your kevlar remains intact. You don't die b'coz |
| of bullet wounds, but the shotgun pellets inflict severe |
| concussion and internal damage. |
| |
| Damaged kevlar does more harm than good. Since kevlar armor |
| consists of a layer of material which leaves the bullet in the |
| vest, the overall strength of the armor is reduced. Since kevlar, |
| is only 4% elastic(it stretches up to 4/100 its size before |
| breaking) damage will cause that number to fall, meaning it would |
| lose its `trampolin' effect on bullets before being of any use. |
| |
| Armed authorities wearing kevlar usually removes them after |
| being damaged, even though it only got one bullet shot in it. You |
| should refill your armor too every respawn, as long as it's |
| damaged. |

part of the warehouse rooftop and back exit alleys. Not much cover from enemy
here, except from behind the administration building(Area d/3, d/4) and the dark
at the end of the bridge(area 0/6).

(a.3-4) Administration Building--> Area (d/3, d/4)
That building behind the blue cargo container box where most counter-
deployed. It provides suitable cover from enemies exiting from the back exit,
roof top, and the bridge. It has an elevated perimeter which is inaccessible
ground level, but provides a way out if you ever find yourself stuck on top of
blue cargo box. (Which by the way is possible by jumping off the two level red
containers after climbing the ladder beside it.)
The tip here is not to jump from the blue box, just run towards the direction
administration building. Jumping will chip away at both your health and armor

a.3-5) Blue cargo container--> Area (c/4)
The blue cargo container which lies parallel the red one and creates a small
corridor leading into the warehouse main entrance. It hides the people coming
and into the main exit, and is the perfect stage for ambush attacks by anyone.

a.3-6) Red cargo container--> Area (b/4)
One of the two ways going up the warehouse roof. It's a double decker cargo
containers on top of each other with a ladder going up to the roof. It is placed
exactly at the corner of the warehouse's outer perimeter, and provides good
for ambush or get away.

a.4) Outdoors: Counter-Terrorist Map Strategy
1.) Securing this area as a possible sniper lookout is an advantage. It
visual cover for all three warehouse exits, as well as an elevated field of
which is difficult to match. Unlike the warehouse rooftop & bridge however, this
is vulnerable to repeated HE grenade attacks from below, doesn't have offer
room to strafe, and cover from enemy fire in order to reload.

2.) The vent entrance is a popular option when penetrating the enemy
has alot of disadvantages though: a) people in the vent can only exit out of it
at a time, the rest inside are sitting ducks and the one out of it is in for an
ambush; b) people can just HE grenade the vent and kill everyone inside; c)
ammo can rip through the vent from inside the warehouse and kill the anyone in

3.) When going inside via the main gate, stick to the sides of the elevated
inside, each spotting snipers from above, the sides and especially in front of

4.) A strategic rifleman position for those who are spraying bullets through
warehouse walls. This also provides a good position to stage an ambush against
opponents attempting to exit the warehouse via the big garage gate.

5.) This dark space just below the bridge is perfect place for snipers who are
taking out opponents inside the warehouse. Don't stay in this place too long,
exposed to enemy fire from above-- the red cargo boxes and the warehouse rooftop
itself. You'll also find out that terrorist grenades from inside the warehouse
chip away your health in this position.

6.) The bridge position is important in so many ways. It's a good position to
out snipers and opponents from the back exit alley, the warehouse rooftop, and
office building rooftop. It also provides more than enough space to strafe in,
the office building which is vulnerable to he grenade attacks from below, with
other alternative exits but the ladder and jumping off.

7.) The darkest area in the whole map, perfect for H&K Sniper users or Carbine
riflemen who thinks they can shoot it out against an Artic on top the warehouse
Just watchout for the guys coming out the back exit.

8-9.) Two dark areas with similar conditions like the one near the foot of the
bridge. The one fronting the blue box can easily toss HE grenades to chip away
opponents exiting the warehouse. The one at the backdoor can provide some wide
cover fire at the roof area.

10.) Either stage an ambush behind the blue box or the little dark area at the
of the administration building. Or...

11.) Wait it out for some of your team mates to die and go get their guns,

12.) Use any rifle to spray some bullets at the warehouse's back wall, hoping
would actually hit your opponents inside. Or...

13.) Get on top the red cargo box, hold your position for an ambush, or stage
ambush at the bottom of the ladder for all upcoming oponents. You're exposed to
opponents' grenades at this position though. Or...

14.) Jump off to the blue box and hold your ambush position there. Effective
overstaying idiots who are at the end of the bridge. You could spot snipe the
alley and the warehouse rooftop too.
| Things to remember when attempting to penetrate enemy hq: | |
+===========================================================+ |
| 1) Use HQ grenades to clear the entry points: whether it's the |
| garage door, the vent, or the back exit. There's nothing more |
| frustrating than ending up in a middle of an ambush. If you |
| feel like doing a kamikaze, carry an HE, enter via the back |
| door under the cover of rifle fire, throw them while inside, |
| then switch to your knife while you scamper away towards the |
| garage door. |
| |
| 2) Once in a while, the CT must attempt to enter through the |
| front gate... guns blazing. Since the Terrorist would be |
| scattered monitoring exits, they'd be running around confused |
| when you and your team suddenly all burst into the front gate,|
| taking the Terrorist team one by one. There's nothing |
| frustrating than a good, well-planned guard duty gone to |
| waste. |
| |
| 3) Always proceed inside under the cover of weapons firing, a |
| diversion, or with the attitude of taking as much opponent as |
| you can before they got to you. Not much good on your scores, |
| but helps alot teamwork wise. |
a.5) Outdoors: Terrorists Map Strategy
1.) Since Terrorist deployment is so much nearer to the warehouse's three
move to secure this exits or, armed with an Artic, go outside and take a shot or
at a CT before hurrying back inside.

2.) It would be possible that there would be a few of CTs heading for each
HE and Flashbang grenades at your discretion.

3.) The warehouse rooftop is an important place to secure. If you're deployment
at the 2nd Floor, near the airvent entrance, grab a buddy and head out to the
rooftop. At the warehouse rooftop, secure the following positions:
a.) Office Building rooftop above the CT van.
b.) Dark areas near the CT van, at the foot of the bridge, and the area
of the administration building.
c.) The bridge
d.) Back door alley
The important thing is that you have a buddy or two to serve as your "guards"
some CT attempts to climb on to your location using the red box ladder or the
alley ladder. The Office building location is the next important location to
since it's the most useful spot for the CTs and the hardest fire upon from

4.) Use the red and blue cargo boxes as a useful cover when you're attempting
grenade throwing spree against CTs still in the deployment area. The blue and
cargo boxes forces people entering and exiting via the main to "line-up",
automatic rifle fire.

5.) If you're about to frag some sniper stuck in the bridge, switch to your
arm yourself with an HE, then move in for your kill. If you really care to time
weapon firing in between the sniper's reload, you'll win.

6.) Be careful whenever you're near the CT deployment area. There's alot of
in there, and their camo match their enviroment to a tee. You could reload your
in two areas outside: near the red box at the warehouse's corner and the other
the the back exit corner.

7.) Use the dark area below the bridge to stage an ambush. The half-opened
serves as a cover for nasty CTs attempting to sniper their way from outside the

(a.6-a) Main Gate
1st floor: Half opened garage gate leads into a road up to the back of the
warehouse. It ends with a blue cargo box on top of a red cargo box.

(a.6-b) Multi-level 1st floor
The area at the back of the warehouse is actually lower than the floor
the front entrance. There is an angled elevation connecting the two somewhere in
middle. If you're standing right in the middle of the road leading to the front
you'll be seeing a red cargo box, and a bunch of glass on your left. While on
right is a box of crates, and an entrance with a red light leading up to the

(a.6-c) Red cargo box
The red cargo box covers the back exit from view, as well as the first thing
somebody would see up front when entering the garage gate. It is placed near
warehouse corner, but there is enough space for a person to move along its sides
fronting the warehouse wall. It has an elevated view of the garage gate.

(a.6-d) The "redlight" corridor
This is the floor below the concrete 2nd floor accesible via the angled ramp
the two crates up front. Not much here, but it provides some cover for those
when you need to reload your weapon's ammo.

(a.6-e) Security area
The small room that serves as a junction of the steel and concrete platforms.
has a sliding automatic door which also serves as an entrance to the room where
hostages are. Beside the sliding door, there are three panels that serve as
surveillance cameras located outside the warehouse, very similar to what the CTs
in their van. If you actually explode an HE here, you could injure some of the

(a.6-f) Air vent
Hollow steel tunnel that can be used as CT entrance. It has two levels: with
second vent running from above and middle of the first one. The main vent exits
the concrete platform in the 2nd floor. The second one runs into a metal grating
can be destroyed by any weapon, and exits through the security area ceiling.

(a.6-g) Concrete Second floor
Provides excellent guard position for the air vent and the front gate. It has
access from the 1st floor via ramp at the end, and the small hole leading to the
steel platform. If you try to right strafe at the end of the 2ns floor, with the
just at your left, you can float up until you reach the front of blue cargo box
top of the red box.

(a.6-h) Steel Second floor
The steel second floor is located parallel to the second floor, and can be
through a ladder at the back of the warehouse near the red cargo box and
the "duck"
or crouch hole which leads to the security area. It is basically a poorly-lit
platform placed at the opposite side of the warehouse with handles at the side.

The strategy behind this area is to place yourself in the corner, where the
is so poor you can hide in the shadows while guarding the back, front and air
exits. If someone is entering via the air vent and a spotter repoorts it through
radio, align yourself with the vent and spray rifle fire into the area. If he
via the security area, use the same strategy. Try not to stay too long in this
though, your position is compromised against Artic equipped snipers in the
those sneaking in from the back door.

a.7) Terrorist Map Strategy.

1.) Have two persons man the airvent exits: one at the security area while
other at the other exit. Destroy the grating on the security area airvent exit,
you can throw HE grenades inside to flush out your opponent. One common
staying right in front of an open air vent exit. If you can spray some bullets
the vent using a rifle, so can your opponent.

2.) Use grenades and rifle fire to clear the back alley. Time your grenade
expedition so you won't waste money.

3.) Have at least two persons manning the front gate. Both could carry Artic
or one with a Commando, and the other with an Artic. If someone could spare the
have that third person throw HEs to the outside from the red cargo box or the
found in the elevated platform.

4.) If you've got a few, brave men, secure your hq's rooftop. Then clear the
building of snipers, the bridge, and all dark areas. There's a spot at the roof
you could buy your ammo too.

5.) Teach yourself to take the first shot whenever you're deployed near the
front exit, especially if you're armed with an Artic. Both exits provide good
the back alley and the cargo boxes at front, for you to take out unsuspecting
are still buying they're weapons and ammo.

6.) You don't have enough cash, scavenge for weapons by tailing your teammates
guard duty. Get yourself some kevlar and extra ammo for your hand gun.

7.) If everyone goes out, EVERYBODY MUST GO OUT. CTs are no match if your team
these three positions: the red and blue cargo boxes at front, the back alley,
warehouse rooftop.

a.8) Indoors: Counter-Terrorist Map Strategy

1.) Once inside, head out to the hostages. Even though you can't rescue them
right now, at least you've got yourself some money.

2.) Entering through the vent isn't such a bad idea, if you've got the right
Equip yourself an HE or Flashbang to clear your exit, then switch to your rifle
shotgun to take out the enemy. If you plan on being a little more covert, here's
imagine 007 gonna do. Sneak up on your opponent and knife your way through him.
by the way, look out for that Terrorist on guard at the vent's second tunnel
above the ladder at the vent's middle).

3.) The dark, shadowy area above the red cargo box is a perfect place to snipe
Terrorist scum once you exit the vent via the security area. Equip yourself with
Carbine or an Artic for this purpose.

4.) Provided you finally entered the warehouse, be wary about being a target of
crossfire. If you have a buddy with you, never move around in a line, since
fire can go through both of you at the same time. Avoid grenade attacks by
to your lighter weapons-- the handgun or the combat knife. And stay at the sides
protect yourself from enemy fire from above.

5.) If you're fighting someone at the red box dark area, never fight him from
security area, or through that crouch hole at the side of the security area
to the steel platform. Choose between the concrete 2nd and even the first floor
your position.

a.9) Assault Map End Game: Check Mate
While you have have trained yourself well to expect help from your team mates,
whenever your up for encounters with another group of opponents, one-on-one
this maps are very difficult to win. Be a little too careful, you end up with
round in draw and with no cash. Be too aggressive, then you lose the round for

To tell you the truth, you don't stand alot of chance in beating more than
opponent, especially if you're playing online on the Net. But if you can stick
principle, a strategy or style to win-- maybe you can strike it rich, at
that particular round.

Rule number one, and this rule applies to almost all maps, make the A1 Artic
weapon of your choice. It doesn't matter that it handles like a cheap car,
to lighter weapons when on the run could solve this. Learning on how and when to
this weapon will teach you a valuable lesson on winning endgames, long-distance
firefights reduce the odds of you getting fragged, it also teaches you that
shot counts.

Rule number two, scatter your opponents by constantly moving around. Never
more than one enemy at the same direction at the same time. Never stick to one
of the map, no matter how comforting that position is. The idea is to frag your
opponents one at the time, and at least avoid getting yourself in unnecessary
crossfires. Find elevated positions that will force the opponent to fight you
a time.

Never attempt to out strafe opponents on end games situations. It's best to
to fight your battles at long distances and with you controlling some advantage
elevation(like the warehouse roof). Avoid melees with automatic weapons at any
If you're the remaining CT seek refuge outside, while Terrorists can hide out in
warehouse's second floor when still facing multiple opponents.

:------------------------------------------------: The Dust Map(de_dust) Trainer

What should I know about the Dust Map, whether I'm a Terrorist or a CT?
The Dust Map is a defuse the C4 bomb scenario that take place in a Mexican
setting. After spawning in positions neutral to the targets, the Terrorist team
proceed and escort a member carrying a C4 bomb to be placed on one of the two
targets. Primary target is a bunch of crates located at the far exit of an old
tunnel, an open courtyard marked by a big "X". The secondary target is a
location similar to the first one; it's where the Counter-Terrorist team is

Why play in the de_dust map?
While the Terrorists are given the advantage here, it's a fun little map
you could focus on fragging the opponents rather than finding them. I find this
very appealing since both teams could act aggressively in offense; and when that
happens, you get intense games that would leave you talking about it hours after
last game. Very addictive, just hope they add a pop-up help text on the HUD for
inexperienced CTs who have trouble defusing the darn bomb.

a.1) --> Counter-Terrorists Deployment
Deployment Area: Secondary bomb site, a courtyard adjacent to the primary
bomb site.
Your Objective : Eliminate all Terrorist team members.
A) Prevent Terrorist members from planting C4 bomb in
either Primary bomb site or Secondary bomb site(your
deployment area.)
B) Locate and defuse C4 bomb once planted in any of the
the target crates.

a.2) --> Terrorists Deployment
Deployment Area: Far opposite end of de_dust map, open courtyard
Your Objective : Plant C4 bomb in either primary bomb site, or secondary bomb
site(the CT deployment area). Bomb site are marked by spray painted "X"s in the
middle of the courtyard surrounded by crates.

a.3) Mission Map 1: CT Deployment
The Counter-Terrorist Deployment is basically a wide area courtyard that has
exits which leads to a) a sniping point with a view fronting the "Bat Cave" exit
above the tunnel; b) the half-opened wooden door that leads into the primary
site and c) flanking positions covering the other exit of the deployment area.

: a.4) Counter-Terrorist Map Strategy

Make Camp> Unlike the Assault Map, the Dust map takes care to include a
fortified CT deployment area that is relatively easy to camp in with, given the
proper conditions and skills.

Using the two maps given above, note the two entrances leading outside of the CT
deployment area. the first one to the left is a dark corridor leading to the CT
sniping area. The sniping area face the following important areas of

1) Using the map's reference where up is north, the sniping area takes car of
area below, where the crates are perfect cover for advancing foes. Take note
since the CT sniping is elevated, you'd see the opponent's feet first before
your sweet sniping face.

2) Also up north is the "Bat Cave's" first exit, with the huge crate in front.
here opponents would do two things: they'd either jump and spray at your
automatic rifle fire, or peek and hopefully snipe you with an Artic.

3) The third hardpoint is the one fronting the second bomb site's double doors.
Snipers facing this direction should scan the area to the left of this area,
this is where the second exit of the Bat Cave is located. Again, opponents will
either snipe or spray you with ammo in here.

4) Beyond the double doors (which is half-closed) you see a green crate. That's
direction you'd look for when spotting enemy snipers residing in that area.

Another possible camping area is within the CT deployment area as well. At the
end of
the long ramp leading further south of this courtyard, there are numerous crates
the west side and at the center. The East side guards against opponents sneaking
the dark corridor, and the ramp itself is a good cover for those half-hidden

games only carry original CS 7.1 add-ons. I don't know where to get
additional software patches on misc stuff like naked hostages, bloody
knives et. al. Nor am I interested in acquiring such software,
b'coz they're purely aesthetic anyways.

Flames, comments, suggestions, are most welcome & shall be acknowledged.
