||==========================================================================||
|| [1.0] Introduction
||==========================================================================||

Counter-Strike started as a normal Half-Life MOD and over the years has 
exploded into the most played multiplayer game to date. 100 000 servers go up 
EVERYDAY, Counter-Strike Retail is also one of the top selling games in all 
time. Why is it so popular? Personally I like realistic First Person 
Shooters, that whole 'run like a mad man into that room with a huge-ass 
rocket launcher and blow the crap out of everyone' thing just doesn't appeal 
to me, I like games like CoD, the Rainbow 6 Series and Counter-Strike where 
careful planning and strategy is required to win. 

Steam is a new way of playing Counter-Strike, it was developed by Valve to 
'revolutionize' the way you play online. To learn more about Steam got to the 
site, www.steampowered.com. This guide only covers Steam Counter-Strike. Why? 
Simple- Sooner or later Valve will abandon WON and transfer to Steam. The new 
version is a huge overhaul and I'd rather save myself the time and energy to 
make a guide for the future, instead of the past.

If you would like to contact me, go ahead just remember, any of the 
following types of emails will be deleted on sight:

- hate mail
- viruses
- bombs
- spam
- anything stupid

BTW make sure your topic has the words "CS faq" or "counter-strike FAQ" or 
the word "GameFaqs" in it or I will delete it, any emails with the topic 
line "hi" or w/e will be deleted on sight so MAKE SURE YOU PUT "CS FAQ" IN 
THE TOPIC LINE!!!!!!

One last thing, lots of quotes and important info will be placed in boxes 
like this one-

so be sure to read the enclosed text. 

Feel free to stop reading at any time, however if you have the time be sure 
to read through the entire thing, as some really important things are 
scattered throughout the FAQ and it would be worthwhile to read all of them.

||==========================================================================||
|| 2.0 Game Basics
||==========================================================================||


|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| [2.1] Getting The Game & Setup
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Buying half-life is quite easy now, you can buy the platinum pack for about 
50 bucks which has Counter-Strike, Day Of Defeat, Half-Life, Team Fortress 
Classic, Opposing Force, Blue Shift (I think) and a bunch of others. Or you 
can buy just buy HL and download all the mods, which was good for me, or if 
you can't find it in stores, you can buy it over steam for 40 dollars US I 
think and you get all the Hl mods too. Personally I think just buying HL is 
good if you want it for the mods, but if you like the single player HL and 
want more, buying blue shift and Op For may also be good for you.

NOTE- The steam install guide is at section 1.3.5

After you install steam, you will want to create a steam account, and then 
you will want to install the 1st party mods and then if you want, 3rd party
mods.

After that head to the settings menu and put the settings to your 
preferences. Now you're going to want to go to the server list to finally 
get playing, under filters check off the following- server not full, has 
users playing, and is not password protected, you can also configure your 
ping rang, 250 is good for me and I have DSL so for any 56kers out there, 
you will want to set it to less than 150 or 100. If you play in pass 
protected servers though, you won't want to check of is not password 
protected. 

Location wont matter for broadband users but for any 56kers I suggest you 
set it to where you live. Anti-cheat is basically useless in my opinion, in 
my entire history of playing CS the anti-cheat has only ever caught ONE 
person when if I was admin, I would ban like half the server for hacking, but 
its your choice.

|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| [2.2] Server Selection, Connecting & Map Types
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

"The never ending job" as said by another HL MOD FAQ writer, finding a good 
server is always hard but in the end is very worth it. Ok so if you read my 
above 2 paragraphs you basically know how to set filters and which ones to 
set. Now you have to decide what kinds of server you want to play on, ones 
with lots of people, ones with a few people etc. Personally I think it is 
much more fun with lots of people like 20+ people in one server. 

Ok so lets pretend I'm trying to find a good server to go on, first I would 
hit the player tab at the top of the server list which makes all the servers 
with lots of people go to the top. Just a little tip from a server picking 
vet, any server that only have 1 player slot are not joinable, don't try, 
because about 95% of all servers have a thing called 'reserved slots' where 
at least one slot is always left open for the admin or another VIP. So 
always go into servers with 2+ empty player slots, if you are playing with 
a group of people, make sure the server has one more slot than the number 
of people you want to play with, example-

# of people= 3, # of slots on servers= 3 = bad

# of people= 3, # of slots of server= 4 = good

There are 3 different Map types that are out of the box, many more maps can 
be Downloaded from a server or website (place any Dled maps in your 
C-\program files\steam\steamapps\INSERT EMAIL HERE\counter-strike\cstrike
\maps) The 3 default types are Bomb Planting/Defuse (DE_ maps) Hostage 
Rescue (CS_ maps) and Assassin Maps (AS_ maps) I will give a brief 
explanation of each type of mission in the following paragraph.


==============================================================================
                         Bomb Planting/Defuse (DE_ maps)
==============================================================================

The CTs must defend a area where the bomb can be planted, called the 'bomb 
site' or 'b site' in most maps there are two bomb sites, labelled 'a' 
and 'b', most of the time there will be signs pointing to each bomb site. The 
Terrorists however must carry and plant the bomb at the bomb site and then 
successfully defend it from the CTs. In the event that the bomb has been 
planted, the CTs can/must eliminate any remaining Terrorists and defuse the 
bomb, this is done much faster by buying a defuse kit (B,8,6). 

If the bomb is planted, the time will also go away, in the previous version 
in the last 30 seconds in a game would be useless to a Terrorist with the bomb 
as the timer would run out making the CTs win even though the bomb had been 
planting, so to prevent CT camping when the bomb was planting the Devs 
removed the timer when the bomb had been planted so planting in the last 30 
secs would still be useful.

Its good etiquette as a CT to attack the bomb site and defuse the bomb and 
for a Terrorist to defend the bomb site as long as possible. 

==============================================================================
                          Hostage Rescue (CS_ maps)
==============================================================================

In these types of maps the CTs must go to where the hostages are being held, 
and then lead them to the safety zone marked by the ( R ) on the middle left 
hand side of your HUD. The terrorists however must defend attack from the CTs 
and guard and keep the hostages at their hiding place at all times, 
Terrorists 
are not alerted when a hostage has been taken, only when they have been 
rescued. Killing or injuring the hostages will take away a lot of money from 
you so never hurt hosties.

==============================================================================
                           Assassin Maps (AS_ maps)
==============================================================================

The least played map type out there, as a CT you must keep the VIP alive and 
bring him to a certain point in the map. If you are a CT you can choose to be 
a VIP through the team selection screen. The VIP CANNOT pick up any weapons 
and can only use his USP he spawns with. The terrorist must try and kill the 
VIP, if they do they win the round, if they don't they lose.

NOTE- in any type of map, if all the people are killed on one team, the other 
will win, no matter the map type, the only exception is when a Terrorist 
plants 
the bomb and gets killed, the CTs will not win the round as the bomb is still 
there, you must defuse it by pressing [E] while standing above it.


|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| [2.3] Team Selection, Spawning & Buying
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

When you connect to a server you will be greeted with a MotD that states the 
rules, admins and others things you should know about the server, BE SURE TO 
READ THE MOTD, ban could result if you don't. 

After reading the MotD, press 'ok' and then selected your team, if you want 
to see the score first, hit TAB, if the scores are under the team selection
menu and you don't mind losing a round, you can hit spec and then hit TAB to 
look at the scores and join the game next round. After you join a team chose 
a skin. If you are a Terrorist the best skin is the 1337 Krew because they 
have the smallest model, so you have more chance of surving then someone with
another skin such as the Arctic Warfare. As For CTs pick the GIGN Skin
because they have the smallest head model. I shouldn't have to tell you why
this is important. 

The first time you join a game, you will likely be made a spec until the 
round end, just be patient, chat it up and watch some people so you can get 
better. After the round ends you will dropped into a place called the 
'spawn', this is were you will start each round and also where you can buy 
weapons and equipment.

Speaking of buying, it's one of the most important aspects of the game. This 
is the best way to get weapons and equipment; you can pick up weapons but not
equipment (with the exception of the diffuser kit for the CTs on bomb maps).
To buy items hut the B key by default to open up a menu of things you can 
buy here is what it looks like-

1- Pistols
2- Shotguns
3- Sub-machine Guns
4- Rifles
5- Machine Guns
6- Prin. Ammo
7- Secondary ammo
8- Equipment
0- Exit

Details of what each section means is in section 3.0. These categories have 
sub-categories; these sub-categories are the actual weapons you buy, with the 
exception of #6 and #7, which have no sub-categories. Again for weapon info 
go to section 3.0. After you buy a weapon, be sure to buy ammo, Kelvar and 
a 'nade or two. Once you are finished buying pull out a knife or pistol and 
quickly get into position to attack, or defend, these are told for their 
individual maps in the map section of this FAQ.

|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| [2.4] HUD, Money & Game Events
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The Heads up display (called HUD from now on) in everything on your screen 
that is not part of the environment, walls etc are part of the environment, 
your ammo meter however isn't. 

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Top of HUD, Left to Right
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

RADAR- The green circle in the top left hand corner, the radar is very 
important for finding your teammates and it also can be used to find out if 
you teammates have advanced past a certain point, if they haven't you will be 
killed instantly by the other team, and if they have you can help you r team 
out. For example on Dust as a terrorist you can use the radar to find out if 
you teammates have rushed the tunnels yet or not, if they haven't but you 
don't because you have no radar you will be killed almost instantly. Here is 
a symbol list for the radar-

Red Dot- VIP for CTs on AS_ maps, and Bomb locations for Terrorists on DE_ 
maps

Purple Dot- Teammate

T shape- Teammate above you

Upside down T- Teammate below you

Yellow dot- Teammate speaking on Mic or someone who used the voice commands 
(example- 'go go go!')

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Weapon/Equipment Selection Menu
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is where you select your weapon/equipment, I strongly suggest typing 
this into your console "hud_fastswitch 1" without the "s, this will make it 
so you just press a number and it will pop the weapon out instead of pressing 
the number and clicking making weapon switching quick and deadly. Here is a 
list of what each number brings out-

1- Primary weapon, any weapon besides a pistol
2- Secondary weapon, a pistol
3- Melee weapon, Knife
4- Grenades, Flashes, HEs or Smokes
5- Bomb, if terrorist on a DE_ map

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Bottom Of HUD, Left to Right
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

Health- This is where you can see how much health you currently have. You 
will die once you hit zero. Your health CANNOT replenish, but it can go down 
by either being shot, falling or being slapped. 

Armour- This is where it shows your armour, you must buy armour to make this 
meter go to 100. If you armour reaches 0 it is either because you didn't buy 
any or because your armour got hurt so much it is useless. If your armour 
reaches 0, you will NOT die, although your chances are higher. 

Round Timer- The timer for the round, it will count down continually until 
it hits zero, where then the round will end. If the bomb is planted the 
timer will disappear. If the round is won before the time hits 0, the 
round will restart. 

Ammo Indicator- This is where you can see how much ammo is in the clip, 
and how much you have overall. The first set of numbers are the bullets 
you currently have in your clip. When it hits zero, it will automatically 
reload for you if you set it to. If you want to reload in the middle of 
a clip, hit [R] by default to do so. 

Cash- This is where you can see how much money you have, any cash gains, 
listed below will appear in green, any losses will appear in red. The 
maximum cash you can have is $16000. 

NOTE- This chart is based on the 1.5 manual, if you have any changes to add 
tothis chart, please contact me.

| Action           | Gain/Loss               |

| [2.5] Steam Setup Guide
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

So you've started up CS and you have no clue what to do, you've come the 
right 
place. The first thing you'll need to play 1.6 is get steam. Get it at 
www.steampowered.com. There are 3 versions of steam you can get. 

One is a very small file (500k) and all the mods are downloadable, get this 
if 
you want more than CS, but not all of them. Another is ALL valve mods in 1 
huge 
package including Team Fortress Classic, Deathmatch Classic, Half-Life, 
Opposing Force, Day of Defeat, Ricochet and Counter-strike, if you want all 
the HL mods get this. The final one is the CS cache, if you only want CS, get 
this.

Pick one and then install it. After going through the various steps, find a 
server and connect to it.

|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| [2.6] CS Etiquette

- Don't accuse someone of hacking just because they are doing better than you
- If FF is on, don't kill your teammates
- Don't use sexual or racial terms
- Respect all players

12)

This gun is the Terrorist starting gun. Many people dislike this gun because 
it is so weak, but if used properly it can get you out sticky situations. If 
the target is in medium or far range, use the single bullet function for 
better accuracy. If the target is close, switch to burst fire and take burst 
at his head or upper body to kill the target quickly. 

In a pistol round this gun can be good for a Terrorist who wants to save 
cash. This gun is best used with burst mode in close distance so it can do 
serious damage, as you fire with this gun, slowly make your way to the head 
(on the shoulders) as you fire so the enemy has less chance to respond.

Killing a person with this gun can be quite simple, as long as you keep 
moving he won't be able to get a good shot on your head, which is his best 
chance at killing you. While moving continue to shoot at him and he should be 
dead quite quickly.

|----------------------------|-Real Life Info-|------------------------------|

23)

The Glock 18, if you first look at it, looks like the Glock 17, the only 
difference is a small dial-like selector on the side, gas vents on the side 
and a faintly protruding barrel. When tucked away, anyone could mistake the 
G-17 for the G-18 and vice versa. Visual appearances are the only things 
these 2 pistols have in common how ever, the G-17 is a normal 9mm pistol,
while the G-18 is more like a sub-machine gun than a pistol. 

In Counter-strike, the Glock can fire either single-shot or automatic shots. 
Originally it was to be used for Counter-Terrorist purposes, many 
organizations such as the DEA have used it. The recoil from the automatic 
shots is very powerful. The G-18 uses normal G-17, but the parts are not 
completely compatible so that some one can't take a G-17 and make it into a 
G-18.

| [3.1] Pistols
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The best friend of Snipers and Rushers alike, the Pistol can be a deadly 
sidearm is used properly. In Counter-Strike a pistol is the only piece of 
equipment you will recive automaticlly at the start of each round. Terrorist 
will get a Glock 18 while Counter-Terrorist will get the USP. Different 
pistols are useful for different things, so be sure to read each section to 
know what each pistol is good for.

In Real Life the Pistol is usually used when the primary weapon is out of 
ammo or when the person using the weapons has little or no combat experience 
(such as a Medic or Engineer)

A tip I received from a reader who name he wishes to be hidden, using the 
Glock with armour or using a 'Nade can be deadly if someone can aim. If a T 
with a Glock rushes, he can quickly kill his enemy if he aims for the head 
because having a Helmet is impossible, so the first shot will stun your 
opponent and the second will finish him off. 

Killing a person with this gun can be quite simple, as long as you keep 
moving he won't be able to get a good shot on your head, which is his best 
chance at killing you. While moving continue to shoot at him and he should be

        ||========= HK USP .45 Tactical (K&M .45) [USP] B,1,2 =========||

|----------------------------|-Strategy/Comments-|---------------------------|

This is Counter-Terrorist Starting gun, it is a bit stronger than the Glock,
but still useless if you do not know how to use it. This gun is best used a
Medium ranges, at close range this gun this gun wont fire enough bullets to
keep you alive, and at long range the accuracy is pretty bad. The USP has 112
bullets, so if you have bad aim, you can still use this weapon and not worry 
about running out of ammo. Aim for the head and upper body is a good strategy
for lots of weapons, and this one is no exception. 

This gun is equipped with a silencer which does exactly what you'd to do, 
silence stuff. In dark places where the enemy can't see you, the silencer is
great as you can't be seen (duh) since your silencer is on, you can't be 
heard either, do the math... *looks around* ok ill do it for you-

USP + Silencer + Dark Place + Enemy - Light & Sound = Kill

Get it?

This gun is also great for pistol rounds, although the Desert Eagle has more
power, this gun is good in all aspects, and will also allow you to save 
money. It can also rip any Terrorist using Glocks to shreds. 

Killing a USPer can be tricky, but I've found staying as far back as possible
is best as the USP lacks the accuracy to fire long range so when facing 
someone with a USP, get as far back as possible. If you get too close you 
will get ripped to shreds.

          ||====================HK USP Tactical====================||


|----------------------------|-Real Life Info-|------------------------------|

In the early 90's, SOCOM, requested a new handgun that could be used on its 
own, if a rifle or sub-machine gun was not available or not suitable for the 
job. Until this point, all pistols were only backups that some used when the 
main gun was out of ammo or no longer working. They wanted a pistol that 
could hold its on until reinforcements arrived, wanted it to be powerful, 
and above all, accurate.

The company that got handed this difficult task was Heckler & Koch, who made 
the pistol upon a line of previous pistols, the USP-series. It was known as 
the SOCOM pistol. The SOCOM had great accuracy, durability, and power. It 
was the perfect pistol- if it weren't for one problem, the fact that it was 
huge. With the silencer, it came in at 16.65 Inches, which wasn't easy to 
holster.

H&K shortened the SOCOM, and created HK USP Tactical, the one found in CS. 
The gun was quickly taken in by the SpecOps. The only problem with the HK 
was that it could not be used in harsh conditions and seawater, 
Nevertheless, the HK replaced the SOCOM for the SpecOps and became the new 
pistol of choice.

of fire. It is weaker than the Desert Eagle for sure, but can still do its 
job. Like all guns, I say aim for head to achieve maximum results. As for 
range, it is best in close range where small guns are better, at medium range 
it doesn't have the same effect as in close range, and at long range this gun 
is pretty much useless unless your are a good marksman.

This gun is fit for a sniper as it excels in short range, and if you are a 
sniper you likely switch to your sidearm because you are being attacked at 
close range, in that situation this gun is great.

In pistol round if you use the 228 you will probably get killed by the Deagle 
because of sheer power, but your advantage is your Rate of Fire. When facing 
a Desert Eagle in pistol round be quick, strafe behind cover, jump around do 
anything where it is hard to hit you, while moving around return fire at your 
opponent.

Killing some one with a 228 can be tricky if they know how to use it. The 
Counter-Attack against the strategy above is to move around yourself, and to 
make every shot count because you only have 7 bullets before you must reload. 
As an alternative you can retreat to a better position or throw a 'nade.

To kill a person with a 228 otherwise stay as far back as you can the 228 
packs a punch while used at close range so back up.

The 228 is based on popular Sig 226, which was originally made for 9mm 
bullets. The 228 has a solid structure and is much more eye pleasing than the 
old 226. The new 228 is cambered for the new .357 Cal Magnum. This gun is 
used by the FBI, CID, and the Secret Service. SpecOps use the SIG as a light 
back up gun in case their primary gun runs out of ammo or is no longer of 
use. This is an Defensive pistol, unlike the USP which is a Offensive pistol.

|----------------------------|-Strategy/Comments-|---------------------------|

One of the most famous and powerful guns in CS, this pistol is stronger than 
some SMGs out there! It fires slow but powerful shots that can kill an enemy 
in less than 3 shots. One of the problems with this gun is the small clip 
size, only 7 bullets, which can run out quickly in a combat situation. 
Overall, this gun only holds 6 clips, while others guns like the USP hold 12 
clips.

If you have read the previous version of this guide, I said that using the 
Deagle long range was a waste of bullets. I have changed my opinion on this 
gun simply because I saw that gets lots of range kills. At close range it 
doesn't fire quickly but can make short work of any target. At medium range 
this gun is just as powerful and at long range this gun is still a killing 
machine.

Under the uses section, I have it listed as Assault weapon, why? Because this 
can, and is used often to rush key points because of its light weight and 
power. This gun is best combined with either an AK-47, M4A1 or a sniper rifle 
like the Scout or AWP. 

As for using this in pistol rounds, it is a good idea for Terrorists who 
can't use the Glock effectively and will give the Terrorists a more fighting 
chance again the CTs and their USPs. Alternatively for someone how doesn't 
conserver bullets well, the 228, Five-SeveN, Daulies and USP will be a better 
choice for you. 

Killing someone with a Desert Eagle can be almost as hard as killing someone 
with a M4A1 or AK-47. The difference is that the Desert Eagle only holds 7 
bullets, which can disappear quickly in battle. When confronting them, move 
around often causing them to fire random bullets. Soon they must reload, use 
this chance to strike. Alternatively this gun also fires slow shots, so if 
you get a TMP or MAC-10 you can pump your opponent full of lead before he 
even knows he's a target.

|----------------------------|-Real Life Info-|------------------------------|

Ah, the Desert Eagle, even before playing CS I had heard of this gun, it is 
one of the most famous and popular gun in and out of CS. Just saying Desert 
Eagle gives some people shivers. At first it was called the Magnum Eagle 
because it was made by Magnum Research. IMI [Israeli Military Industries] 
helped MG make the DEagle, and the result was the .357 Caliber Desert Eagle. 
After the .357, there was the .44 Cal Magnum. In 1991, a new round, which was 
called the .50 Cal express, was made, and the Desert Eagle .50 AE was the 
most powerful pistol created. 

Although the Eagle is used in movies, it is not used much in the Military. 
Even though its powerful, its loud and hard to conceal. It only holds 7 
bullets, and SpecOps teams need a gun that is quiet, or holds more ammo, and 
the Eagle has neither of these things.

The only Akimbo weapons of Counter-Strike, the Daulies are pretty weak when 
it comes to damage, and the same goes for accuracy, the first shot will 
likely be accurate, but if you keep firing the bullets will fly all over the 
place, which isn't good. The reloading on these guns is exceptionally long, 
about 8 seconds to be exact.

On the plus side this gun looks damn cool, seeing someone run towards you 
firing these full blast is quite a sight to behold. For some reason, this gun 
holds 30 bullets, 15 for each gun, so the ammo counter should look like this- 

15/15 | 120

That way you can see how much each gun hold, you should also be able to fire 
the different guns separately, for example, [left click] would fire the left 
gun, while [right click] will fire off the pistol on the right.

As for pistol round, I don't recommend this gun as it really is a ammo 
guzzler, and since they cost 800 dollars now, you wont be able to buy any 
ammo. You wont be able to compete with the CT's USP or Five-SeveN so only use 
this gun when you want some fun, not kills.

Killing someone with this gun is pretty easy, like most pistol you'll want to 
back up and put as much distance between you and the enemy as possible so his 
shots become weaker and less accurate.

The 92F 9mm Barreta series was first made by the US Army in the mid 80's. It 
was meant to replace the Colt .45 M1911 Pistol the Army was already using. 
Since then, these guns have been popular among SpecOps, Police Officers and 
Civilians alike. The problem with these pistols is that they are called 96G, 
but they only have a 9mm Camber, which in fact the 92F had. The 96G has a .40 
Caliber Chamber, which the one in CS isn't. So the devs need to change the 
name from '96G' to '92G' or make this gun have a .40 Caliber Chamber to make 
it realistic.

The Five-SeveN is a great gun, fast, good at long distances, and one of them 
most accurate guns in the game. For snipers I would suggest using this gun as 
it has a 20 bullet clip, and fires extremely quickly so you may be able to 
out fire your opponent to kill him. As for rushers, this pistol is great if 
your primary weapon isn't good at long range (shotguns, Ingram, TMP) and can 
help take out long range opponents.

For pistol rounds, if you are skilled enough I would suggest staying back and 
sniping with this gun. Its accuracy is great so this is very possible and 
effective too. If you are not skilled enough to snipe with a pistol, then I 
suggest you rush with the rest of your teammates. 

This gun can be as hard to take out as the Desert Eagle as it excels at all 
ranges, but it's downfall is its weak bullets. Since the enemy won't be able 
to damage you much, you are free to lay down your own attack and hopefully 
kill the enemy.

         ||======================FN Five-SeveN====================||


|----------------------------|-Real Life Info-|------------------------------|

Made around the same as the P90, the FN Five-SeveN is one of a kind. You 
should notice that the capital 'N' on the Five-SeveN, this isn't a typo, 
Fabrique Nationale made this spelling as a marketing gimmick. Introduced in 
1995, using the new 5.7x28mm ammo, the Five-SeveN can pierce any type of 
armour and helmet currently on the market, and packs a huge punch. It is 
small, light, and has better grip than any other 9mm pistol out there.

Most people say the Five-SeveN does very little damage, because its Chamber 
is slightly less than .22 Caliber round. Some FN and NATO shooters however, 
say Specialized Ammo is more powerful than the standard issue NATO 9mm Ammo. 
Tests have shown that the P90 and Normal 9mm Guns have the same effect on un-
armoured targets, but the effect of the pistol has yet to be seen. FN hopes 
one day NATO will use its 5.7 ammo instead of the normal 9mm ammo. Some NATO 
frontline units are already using 5.7 Chamber guns for testing.

Shotguns are powerful at close range, less effective at medium range and 
suicide at long range. They are excellent for small maps like fy_iceworld and 
fy_pool_day. In Counter-Terrorism missions, Counter-Terrorists use shotguns 
not as assault weapons, but rather as entry methods. A shotgun is used to 
blow doors open when lock picking would take far too long and silence has 
been thrown out the window.

This gun (like the Dualies) is one of those 'style' guns, but 
unlike the Daulies this gun is good for something. At pointblank to 
close range, this gun will net you an automatic kill. The sheer 
power and pressure this gun delivers is enough to smash a man's rib 
cages in. At medium range this gun loses some of its power but can 
still kill. If you meet an enemy at long range such as a sniper, I 
suggest you use your pistol, A shotgun fired at this range hardly 
does any damage at all, and using a pistol will greatly improve your 
chances of survival.

After you fire off a shot, you must pump (note the nick name) 
another round in, this greatly reduces your chances of survival if 
another enemy is around or if you miss, so your best bet is to fire 
off a shot and then strafe behind a wall, when you are done pumping, 
re-emerge and pump more lead into your enemy until all are dead. If 
there is no cover, after you fire your first shot jump, strafe, 
crouch and be downright unpredictable. If you plan do use this gun
make sure you have good aim also.

Taking down someone with this gun can be quite simple, stay as far
back as possible and make sure he never gets close enough to fill 
you up with lead. If he starts strafing and jumping around use a 
grenade, anyone will do. A HE will flush him out so you shoot him, 
a Flash will blind him so he is a prime target and a smoke will 
(hopefully) lag him so that he is easy for the kill. 

This gun is best used in small maps or maps with lot of cramped 
inclosed spaces, maps like fy_iceworld, and fy_pool_day.

|----------------------------|-Real Life Info-|------------------------------|

The M3 is made by Benelli from Italy and marketed by H&K. It is mostly used 
by Police SWAT groups to blow open doors and keep the down riots. This gun is 
a pump action shotgun, meaning you must pump a new shot into the chamber 
every time you fire. In real life, if you were to be hit with one of these 
beasts, you would be kicked back and likely be left unconscious for quite a 
while. At the worst, you could have your ribs smashed in and your lungs 
crushed, even if you have Kelvar protection.

||====Benelli XM1014 (Leone YG1265 Auto Shotgun) [Auto Shoty] B,2,2====||


Out of the two shotguns, this gun is usually the one that takes less 
skill. As with the Auto Shoty, at close range this gun can kill you in a 
few shots, and medium range it greatly loses its power and you may 
consider pulling out your pistol to finish off any enemies, and at long 
range this gun is worthless. Instead of having to pump new rounds in the 
gun afterevery shot, you can keep shooting off rounds until you have to 
reload orchoose to stop. 

As for using this gun in combat, as mentioned before close range is 
the best way to go with this gun, and unlike the pumpy where you must 
shoot, and then strafe behind a corner, you can, if you want of course, 
stay in the open and fire upon your opponent. 

Taking someone down with this gun is almost as easy as killing a Pumpy 
Shotgun User. As always keep your distance and lob grenades.

|----------------------------|-Real Life Info-|------------------------------|

The Benelli XM1014 is actually the Benelli M4 Super 90, a Tactical
shotgun with a compressible buttstock. This gun was taken in as the USMC 
(United States Marine Corps) combat shotgun on February 12, 1999. Since the 
USMC already had a gun called the M4 (M4A1 Colt Carbine), they had to change 
it to XM1014. To civilian and Police markets, it is sold as the Benelli M4 
Super 90 and carries 8 shells. The M1 and the M3 are made for Police and 
Urban use, while the XM was made for Jungles and other hostile environments. 
In real life, the XM and the M3 use the 12 Gauge shells, but in Counter-
Strike, the XM is weaker than the M3 for game balance only.

           ||====Steyr TMP (Schmidt MP) [TMP] B,3,1 {CT Only}====||

Let me just start off by saying this- this gun was NOT meant to be used in 
combat, it was only intended for Medics and other support personnel who did 
not fight in open combat regularly but still needed firepower to keep 
themselves alive. Since there is not a class system in CS, this gun cannot 
be used for what it is intended for. Now we all know what happens when 
people use guns to do things they are not intended for (sniper at point 
blank, shotgun and sniper range etc.,) and the results are usually 
disastrous. As such, I see many (I hate saying this word, really) noobs
misusing this gun and giving it a bad name, as mentioned before they are 
simply not using it correctly.

First off, don't expect MP5 performance here, they are two different guns and 
should be tread as such, so don't go running into battle with it TMP thinking 
it's a MP5 and then bad mouthing it, just don't. You'll notice this gun has 
an attached silencer, which makes it a great gun for people how prefer 
stealthover marksmanship. Another good thing about this gun is that it fires 
bullets extremely quickly, excellent in close combat where accuracy is thrown 
out the window and power and/or rate of fire take over. Now, the TMP doesn't
have the best power, but it's rate of fire is more than enough to compensate 
for it.

So if you ever meet an enemy at close range, open fire and aim for the head. 
If you meet an enemy at a medium range, take short bursts at his head, if 
this is not working pull out your pistol and use that. And at long range, I 
highly recommend using a pistol as your TMP will be near useless. If you want 
to use this gun, I suggest you play on maps that are small of have small 
crowed places for you to use this gun usefully.

To kill someone with a TMP stay as far back as you possibly can so the enemy
gun will lose its power so you can Counter-Attack and kill the enemy.

     ||===========================Steyr TMP===========================||


|----------------------------|-Real Life Info-|------------------------------|


Many support units (medics, engineers etc) were usually only equipped with a 
pistol, and got ripped to shreds when they came face to face to enemy with a 
rifle. The problem was they couldn't just stick them with a rifle, they were 
far too big and bulky and required lots of training, which medics and 
engineers don't have. This is where the idea of Personal Defence Weapons came 
in. The TMP is a PDW, and is only meant for non-combatants, anyone with 
little experience in firearms can use this weapon so they can keep themselves 
alive.

This gun cannot be used well at long range, and excels at close range. Steyr 
didn't put a stock in this gun because they though it would be even more of 
a burden for the person holding it, as a result this gun cannot control 
recoil well. At close ranges it can fire quickly can get good headshots as 
it gradually moves upwards with its recoil. A noteworthy thing about this gun 
is that it has a built in silencer, making it a great stealth weapon.

The Ingram is much like the TMP, underrated, good at close range, bad at long 
range. Instead of typing everything out again, read the TMP section. 

Killing some one with a Ingram is almost as easy as killing someone with a
TMP, Stay as far back as possible and let your gun rip.

  ||=============================Ingram MAC-10=============================||


|----------------------------|-Real Life Info-|------------------------------|

The MAC was one of many SMG's the SEALs used before they found the awesome 
power of the MP5. The MAC is named after its creator, Gordon Ingram. It is 
made to use 9mm bullets and .45 Caliber ACP. In the 70's this gun was mass-
produced and distributed to many people, including Columbian drug lords. This 
gun is no longer made because the US Government banned all automatic weapons, 
and because after the MP5 came, there was no need for the MAC. Thanks to many 
movies, this gun has earned the name "American Uzi" The MAC was also one of 
the first guns to use a silencer, earning it yet another name, the silent 
killer. 

The MAC was made by many different companies so there are many variations on 
this one gun. The company that made the Ingram in CS is Military Armaments 
Corporation, although Gordon Ingram created the Ingram, this company went 
bankrupt in the mid 70's and (I'm assuming) he sold the design to MAC.

As for Counter-Terrorist operations, this gun can empty its 30 bullet clip in 
3 seconds, not the best weapon for a hostage rescue. It is good however, in 
close combat when cover fire is required so that the enemies will keep their 
heads down, and so your team can keep moving.

The MP5, the SMG of choice for many players, can hold its on ground against 
many other rifles including the M4 and AK. It has a good rate of fire, not 
as slow as the UMP, but not as fast as the TMP or Ingram. It can kill in a 
few shots to the body and is suitable for all ranges. See fast firing guns 
are good for close range because once you fire lots of bullets, your 
accuracy goes bad and so fast firing guns are no good for long range. But 
slow firing guns like the UMP, are better for long range because they fire 
so slow that their shots are accurate, but if they are ever ambushed, 
they're screwed as a slow firing UMP will be killed quickly by a quick 
firing TMP or Ingram. And since the MP5 has a middle rate of fire, it is 
suitable forall ranges, which is excellent.

This gun requires almost no strategy, pick it up and pwn some noobs. Although 
I will say this, watch your recoil if you fire too many shots in succession 
our aim will be horrible so take short bursts. Now I'm not telling to take AK 
bursts, no I'm saying don't fire off more than 5 bullets in succession. 

To Take out someone with a MP5, staying back would be a good idea as the MP's
accuracy drops drasticly, not to say the MP5 is bad at long range, but you
have more chance of living if you stay far away.

        ||=========================HK MP5/N=========================||


|----------------------------|-Real Life Info-|------------------------------|

The MP5 is the gun after the Desert Eagle that almost everyone knows. Based 
upon H&K's G3 Rifle design, it was the very first sub-machine gun to be 
known in accuracy and controllability in firefights. It is the most powerful 
and successful sub-machine gun in the world, and the most trusted. There are 
many versions of the MP5, chambered for 10mm, .40 Cal S&W, and .45 Cal ACP.

The one in Counter-Strike is the MP5 Navy. It is a full size MP5 with a 
retractable stock and 3 firing stages, Safe, Single and Full-Auto. The Navy 
is almost exactly like the MP5A3, expect the Navy is made for SpecOps use. 
The model is Counter-Strike is near exact to what it looks like in real life. 
This SMG is used world wide in nearly every Counter-Terrorist Team in the 
world, including The SEALs, The SAS, The GSG-9 and many others. This gun is 
THE gun to have, in some conditions and locations, it is more useful than 
the M4A1.

Another misfit of SMG's, the UMP is like the TMP and Ingram in the fact that 
hardly anyone uses them, but that's where the similarities end. If you read 
some of the previous weapon profiles, they will fill you in on most of the 
happening's of SMGs. As you probably already know if you've used this gun, 
it fires fairly slow, making it good for long range, to explain this I will
copy & paste something from the above weapons- Fast firing guns are good for 
close range because once you fire lots of bullets, your accuracy goes bad 
and so fast firing guns are no good for long range. But slow firing guns 
like the UMP, are better for long range because they fire so slow that their 
shots are accurate, but if they are ever ambushed, they're screwed as a slow 
firing UMP will be killed quickly by a quick firing TMP or Ingram.

As said above, this gun is best used at long ranges, but see some people 
think its just another MP5 and go running into battle with a slow firing gun 
and get pwned easily. This gives the gun a bad name and doesn't help the user 
out any either. This gun was meant to be used at medium and long ranges, so 
use it there! The recoil on this gun can get quite large also so like the 
MP5, don't fire more than 5 bullets in a row.

Killing someone with an UMP is quite simple, since the UMP fires extremely
slow at close range, get up close, this will make it so the enemy will find
it difficult to do much damage so you can fire back and kill him.

|----------------------------|-Real Life Info-|------------------------------|

The UMP is a newly created SMG based on H&K's MP5 design. This gun however, 
is chambered for the .45 ACP and fires slower so as to control the .45 ACP 
bullets. It is also larger and more boxier than the MP5. The in late 80's, 
H&K made a new SMG called SMG-II, (there was a SMG-I, asked for by the SEALs, 
but then it was cancelled because of the MP5) The SMG-II has many 
improvements over the MP5 but the high cost made it so it was worthless for 
anything but made-to-order automatic gun. The UMP, made in the late 90's was 
H&K's 1st attempt to put some of the qualities of the SMG-II into a smaller, 
more affordable package.

Yet another hardly used gun, the P90 is a very over looked SMG. It fires 
quickly, making it ideal for close range combat. Now personally I don't like 
this gun, its probably because I don't know how to use it or whatever, but I 
simple cannot maintain a positive score with this gun. Anyway this gun's 
accuracy is really bad if you fire off too many shots in succession, so if 
using this gun in medium or long range, fire a shot or two, wait for the 
recoil to die down and then resume.

To kIll someone with a P90 stay far back so thier gun becomes useless and
fire back with your own gun.

|----------------------------|-Real Life Info-|------------------------------|

In the mid 80's NATO was thinking about using Body Armour to equip their 
soldiers, Kelvar was near useless against rifles, but could hold if fired on 
by pistols and SMGs. Which made NATO think about changing to another small 
arms ammo round. FN had the answer (don't they always?), a new ammo type the 
5.7x28mm, a smaller version of the 5.7x45mm rounds- which NATO was already 
using. Not just that, FN also had two new guns that used the new ammo, the 
228 (pistol above) and the P90 (this gun).

The P90, like the TMP was made with a PDW concept, and as said before, uses 
the 5.7 bullets. When tested on Kelvar, it easily ripped right through the 
Kelvar and heavily damaged the target in the Kelvar. It is compact (smaller 
than the MP5), has 50 bullets, and is easily maintained.

The early version of Counter-Strike, the P90 was equipped with a .338 Lapua 
Round, the real P90 however, has 5.6x28mm made by FN. In the game the P90's 
accuracy has been dropped for game balance, but it can still pierce armour 
well (kinda)

This gun is basically the AK and MP5 fused together to create an unholy 
creation they call a Galil, now I'm not bashing the gun, its great, but it 
can't compete with the raw power of the AK, no matter how fast it can shoot 
bullets. This gun is related more closely to the MP5 than the AK because it 
fires shots a bit faster than the MP5 and its shots are a bit weaker than the 
AK, making it have a fine balance.

Al close range this gun will get the job done quickly. At medium range it 
will lose its effectiveness unless you fire in really short bursts (2-4 
bullets) and at long range I suggest you fire 1 or 2 bullets in a row as any 
more will make your crosshairs too large to work with.

The FAM-AS is much like the Galil, both have high rates of fire and both 
don't have good accuracy at long range, but the FAM-AS has a special feature 
which makes it better than the Galil. That feature is the burst fire mode, 
which is activated by [right-click], it is similar to the one on the Glock in 
the sense that they both fire 3 shots at once. However, when a FA-MAS is put 
in burst fire, and fired, all three bullets will hit the exact same place! If 
you don't believe me, try it yourself, buy a FA-MAS, put it into burst fire 
and fire at a wall, you will notice a single black hole in the wall, meaning 
all three shots hit around the same area.

This makes this gun great for headshots, if your first bullet misses the 
head, the other 2 will hopefully hit. The only problem with this is that 
there is a delay between bursts, so if you're met with more than one enemy, 
it would be smart to strafe behind a wall or to jump and flail wildly.

The FA-MAS stands for Fusil Automatique-Manufacture d'Armes de St Etienne, 
and unless you speak French you'll have no idea what that means. It is a 
smaller Bullpup-style assault rifle designed for Desert combat, which the 
French Legion experienced much of. It has been adopted by many other 
countries as the 5.56 Caliber gun of choice. It has a high rate of fire and 
good control, making it the best of both worlds. Although it was originally 
intended for desert combat, it can be used in almost any terrain from sand to 
rain to snow.

The AK-47. A near perfect gun that can take down hordes of enemies in a 
single clip. A gun that can take out an enemy right in front of you, and can 
also take out an enemy across the map in about the same time and using the 
same amount of bullets. The AK is truly the ultimate gun of Counter-Strike. A 
skilled person with an AK can even snipe with his AK, now that, ladies and 
gentleman is true skill.

Like said before, this gun can be used at close range at long range almost 
flawlessly, but someone cannot just pick up an AK and except to be able to 
snipe people from a distance and then kill someone right next to them, no 
like everything in CS (and life) it will take practice. One of the big 
pitfalls I see a lot with people using the AK is that they let the crosshairs 
get WAY to big, never fire off more than 4 shots in a row, and never more 
than 2 at long range as the number one thing in long range combat is 
accuracy, which you will quickly lose if you fire off too many shots at once.

When someone says "Terrorist" most people think of this gun. The AK-47 was 
first made in 1946 by a man named Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov for Soviet 
tank crews to use. It cheap design and high rate of fire immediately made it 
the standard rifle for infantry in Russia and all of its allies. It is quite 
dated by today's standards, but used by post-allies from the cold war and 
Terrorist groups.

The AK is one of most successful guns in the world, 20-50 million units have 
been made, not counting boot leg copies made world wide. Because of weight 
problems, the AK-74 was created, and distributed throughout the army.

As said above, the Scout is a true indicator of skill a sniper and an overall 
player has. This gun is quick, deadly, and most important, silent. Many 
people hate this gun, and it is used rarely, which is unfortunate. True this 
gun cannot kill in one shot, and it ACTUALLY TAKES SKILL TO OPERATE *cough* 
AWP *cough* 

When using this gun, make sure you aim for the head, hitting any other part 
of the body will do either 70 damage or 30 damage, depending on where you hit 
them. If you are ever ambushed with a scout, hope that you bough a decent 
pistol and fire away. If you are trouble with your pistol or it's simply not 
cutting it, I hope you bough some 'nades 'coz you'll need 'em. HEs can kill 
whoever's after you, Flashes can blind a guy so you can kill him or make 
some distance between you and your opponent so you wipe his head clean off 
with your scout. Smokes will provide cover and (possibly) lag up your 
opponents comp so he'll start lagging, which is your time to strike.

The Counter-Terrorist version of the AK-47, I like this gun just as much as 
the AK-47, maybe more. Anyhow this gun, like the AK, can be used at Close and 
Long range equally without much problem. This gun does not have the same 
recoil the AK does, as long as the silencer is on. (More about the silencer 
later) This means you can very well pump 5-8 bullets at close range into an 
enemy and get kill, but don't let your crosshairs get to big, all your enemy 
needs is one bullet to the head to end it all.

About the silencer, I recommend you always keep it on, it reduces recoil, 
makes less of a racket and is just plain better in my experience of playing 
CS and using this gun.

The M4 is one of most popular guns in the western world right now, at the 
core, it's really just the Colt M16A2 Rifle that has been shortened, made 
more durable and made lighter. Fortunately, it has kept its firing mechanisms 
the same so that that does about the same damage a M16A2 would do. This gun 
is currently used by the Marines and is lowly replacing the other rifles in 
the army. The M4A1 in the game is a M4 rifle made specially for the Green 
Barets and Navy SEALs. There are many differences in this model and the other 
ones, one of them is that it has a Rail mounting system allowing it to hold 
different scopes, ones such as Normal Scope and one for Night Vision.

The Army was considering 2 types of silencer, called the Knights Armaments, 
this one looked like a canister with lots of holes in it. The other one was 
from a company called Gem-Tech, the one in Counter-Strike is the one from Gem-
Tech.

The Sig is one of the few guns which has a x2 scope, which makes it ideal for 
attacking at close/med range, and you can hit [right-click] to pull out the 
scope and kill some enemies long range as well. You can fire many shots in 
succession without making the recoil out of control, but when scoped in, you 
should make sure that your crosshairs don't get too big as when fighting long 
range, accuracy is everything.

When compared to the Aug, this gun fires slower but also has a bit more power 
than the Aug, so if you like fast shooting guns, pick the Aug, if you like 
power over rate of fire, choose the Sig.

compact as a SMG. The maker, Sig even went as far to day that this gun could 
be used with one hand, which is truly a feat for an assault rifle. This gun 
is also accurate, a rival to the HK's G3/G3 6 (terrorist auto-sniper)

Similar to the Sig, the Aug has a 2x scope and is an alternative to the 
regular M4/AK. The Aug fires faster shots than the Sig, but is also a bit 
weaker which evens the game out. Much of what I said about the Sig is the 
same here so go look there.

Steyr created the Aug (Armee Universal Gewehr, in English- Universal Army
Rifle) for the Austrian army and is the world's most easily recognized 
Bullpup assault rifle. It has a sleek and futuristic design, is easy to 
handle, and has also has a x2 scope. It is the most accurate rifle in the 
game, but the recoil is so high that that will get horrible recoil if you 
fire more than 3 shots in a row.

The one shot kill gun, the AWP is the most controversial gun in the game. 
Many call this gun a noob stick and that only noobs use it, when really this 
gun can't used by noobs effectively, sure they may be able to score some 
kills but a true sniper could kill you before you knew you had something to 
shoot at.

This gun is best used in long range because it's a sniper but at close I've 
seen many people kill with this. Unscoped this gun is not very accurate and 
if you ever to use this gun unscoped you better pull out your pistol and 
spray and pray.

This gun was made by Accuracy International, a British based company that 
makes Military and sporting rifles. Technically, the AWP and AWM are two 
different guns, the AWP (Police Use) is chambered for a .308 Lapuna Magnum 
while the AWM (Military use) is chambered for a .338 Lapuna, the one in CS is 
the much more powerful AWM. In the real world, all guns in CS could achieve 
one shot kills with or without Kelvar but in the game the only gun that can 
achieve that (with out a head shot) is the AWP. In earlier version of this 
game the AWP actually had crosshairs unscoped, making it even more deadly, 
luckily I didn't have to deal with it because I started playing CS on version 
1.3 -)

With 1.6, auto-sniper have been greatly improved damage wise and you can 
actually kill with them (!) This is good so now people have more choice for a 
sniper rifle other than the AWP or Scout. This rifle has a x4 and x8 scope 
and unlike more sniper rifles, after you fire off a shot, you do not have to 
put a new bullet in, hence the name auto-sniper.

This gun is best used in long ranges because it is a sniper rifle, but since 
it is automatic it can be used in close because if you miss, you can fire 
immediately after. Its best to aim for the head using this gun and then if 
you miss you will at least hit his neck or upper body to do more damage.

The first gun H&K made, the 7.62mm G3 assault rifle was made Germany's 
standard long range rifle and became the basis for all of H&K's firearms. 
G3/SG1 was a special project from the German army. At first glance, it just 
looks like a G3 with a PSG1 scope attached, the difference lies in the 
handling, in semi-automatic mode, it would fire like a sniper rifle, however 
in full-auto mode, it fires like an assault, HK made a "half-way" rifle, that 
could be switch from sniper to assault rifle and vice versa.

The G3 rifles came into existence because of political conflicts, see Germany 
wanted FN to reproduce the French FAL rifle for German use, FN refused so the 
German army turned to H&K, and they accepted, from then on nearly all H&K's 
weapons can be traced to the G3.

Nearly the same as the G3, the SG550 is the CT auto-sniper. The main 
difference between the G3 and the SG550 is that when you hold down the left 
mouse bottom, it will fire quick sniper shots, while the SG550 will fire 
slower sniper shots, other than that they are almost identical.

The sole Machine Gun of Counter-Strike, this gun is hardly ever used by 
serious players, it is usually used by people fooling round or beginners 
thinking "It's a MG so it must be good" I'm here to tell you this isn't the 
case. The recoil is so heavy on this gun it will be unlikely you will be able 
o kill anyone at medium range, forget long range all together, the only kills 
I have ever gotten with this gun was at close range where my massive 100 
bullet clip prevailed. Overall this is one of the weapons that I don't like.

ACII Map Exclusive to my ScoutzKnifez Map Guide (http-
//db.gamefaqs.com/computer/doswin/file/counterstrike_scoutzknifez.txt)

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Description
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

ScoutzKnifez (called SK from here on in) is a map with, you guessed it, 
Scouts and Knifes. This being a primarily sniper map, everyone will be 
equipped with a sniper rifle, so there is no equipment 
advantage/disadvantage, this is pure skill- with a bit of luck thrown in for 
good taste.

If you are recruiting snipers for your clan, this is a good map to do it on. 
This map is best played on Low Gravity so you can float around and jump from 
platform to platform (more on that below)

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Terrorist/Counter-Terrorist Strategy
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

Since both the sides are identical, I have fused the strategies for both 
teams. Both teams will spawn in a basement of a larger building. From the 
basement you can either go up to roof and snipe from there, snipe out of
the two doors, or assault the other base. All situations will be explained 
in more details in the following paragraphs.

If you choose to go to roof and snipe from there, either stick close to the 
door you came in, or pull out your knife and run to the room across from the 
door and snipe from there. Beware though, if you chose to snipe from this 
room, make sure you move around a lot as anyone can pull of an easy headshot 
because your head is the only thing showing.  If sniping from the roof, it 
is also wise to kill anyone the on the roof on the other base, so assaulters 
on your team don't have to face snipers up on the roof.

There are two doors in the basement, one on the left and one on the right. 
For now, I will focus on the one on the left. From here you can see the 
opposite base and the door on the opposite base, I suggest sniping this 
place, as many people will come out of these doors, resulting in many kills. 
You should also note that from the position at the door, you are venerable 
to kill from all other openings so be sure to watch for enemy snipers 
looking to put a hole in your head. About the door on the right, you 
can't see much inside looking out, but if you go out of the door, you 
have a clear view of the opposite base, making the right door a more 
dangerous alternative to sniping the base.

As for rushing, you will want to use your scout at least once to pick off 
any snipers you can. Most of the knifing will happen inside the base, it is 
not smart to knife in the open as snipers from either side can disturb you 
and provide an unfair advantage. You will want to storm the opposing base 
when all snipers have been killed, and any remaining people seem to be 
camping in the base, at this point you should storm the base from both 
doors and work our way up to flush out any remaining enemies still inside 
the base. Make sure you have a sniper watching the base so anyone how 
tries to escape will be killed. So for all you knifers out there, put 
away that knife for now, pull out a Scout, and if you get lucky you can 
thrust cold steel into a Snipers head one day -)

As for General Strategies, there are lots of them, go to both the Scout and 
Knife in the weapons section of this FAQ. Here are just some general 
strategies for this map-

- NEVER EVER block people, sniping requires a lot of room, and many a times 
the sniper will need to back out and move back, so if someone is in your 
favourite sniping spot, don't try to push him out or something, go somewhere 
else.

- When sniping, fire, and when your character put another bullet into the 
slot, quickly strafe behind a wall or something, emerge from the behind the 
wall, fire, repeat

- If left-clicking while knifing, aim for the head, as you will be more 
accurate and hopefully get a head shot

- If right-clicking while knifing, aim just below the head because the aim 
isn't great, and if you miss the head, at least you will do some major 
damage, and if you hit the head well good for you -)

- If low gravity is on, jump onto the higher platforms to gain an edge over 
the opposing team, you can also jump from platform to platform onto the 
opposing base, and kill snipers inside with cold hard steel.  

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Sniper Rifle Strategies For ScoutzKnifez
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

- Use the doors, they are important sniper spots

- Unless you are 1337, don't go into the room across the door way on the top 
floor, as you will get killed fairly quickly

- If some one ambushes you with a knife, don't scope the scout, instead take 
a good guess (the middle of the screen will be where the bullet will go) and 
fire with the scout, a knife can only hit at point blank, and as long you 
keep your distance, you will be fine

- If the above strategy fails because you are trapped or out of ammo, pull 
out a knife and hack & slash like your life depends on it

- When sniping, fire, and when your character put another bullet into the 
slot, quickly strafe behind a wall or something, quick switch to your knife, 
emerge from the behind the wall, fire, repeat

- Use double Scope on this map, you'll need it

|--------------|-Tip from Yamato-|--------------|
|                                               |
| ...you can shoot through the walls in almost  |
| all the places. That is useful if someone is  |
| hiding in the upper roof room behind the side |
| wall. A bullet through there will draw them   |
| out usually for the kill.                     |
|                                               |
|--------------|-Tip from Yamato-|--------------|

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Knife Strategies For ScoutzKnifez
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

- If left-clicking while knifing, aim for the head, as you will be more 
accurate and hopefully get a head shot

- If right-clicking while knifing, aim just below the head because the aim 
isn't great, and if you miss the head, at least you will do some major 
damage, and if you hit the head well good for you -)

- Whenever storming the opposing base, always use your knife

- If low gravity is on, jump onto the higher platforms to gain an edge over 
the opposing team, you can also jump from platform to platform onto the 
opposing base, and kill snipers inside with cold hard steel.  

- If you are trying to knife some one and they fire their Scout at you, make 
sure you strafe, jump and be unpredictable, this will make it harder for the 
other person to kill you with a head shot, although he still may kill you 
with out a head shot, if this is about to happen, pull out your Scout and 
return fire. 

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| What to do If You're Team is Getting Nailed to the Wall
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

On these kinds of maps, its pretty hard for a team to make a comeback if the 
other team is pwning it. If low gravity is on, pull out a knife and rush the 
roofs, from here you can see and kill everyone on the map (with the exception 
of anyone hiding in the base)

Another thing to do is for 2-4 people to camp in a room inside their base 
with knives, this way you can gang up on any person that comes in and make 
short work on him.

[]----Quote-----------------------------------------------------------------[]

Sniping is a deadly art, a person who can kill and escape before being seen. 
As good in stealth as in aim, the sniper lives for the kill, who get 
adrenaline rushes when he points his crosshairs, upon an enemies head, will 
pull the trigger, and in a split-second, he will have gained a kill, and 
prestige. Unfortunately, the sniper name has been tarnished, spat on and 
crapped on by AWPers, people who rush with snipers and noobs. Now not 
everyone is like these same people, but they have spoiled a true snipers
name, which is most unfortunate. 

Now, anyone with half a ass can pick up or buy a sniping gun and begin 
killing people with it, but this is not true sniping. As said before, a 
sniper lives for the kill, and can kill and run without being seen, this 
is a true sniper. 

|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Scopes
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Just a quick lesson on scopes, there are 4 types of scopes, x1, x2, x4, and 
x8. X1 is the normal unscoped size, all gun have this feature. X2 is the 
scope on the Sig and Aug, it is not x1 scope, but not x4 sniper scope either. 
X4 is a sniper scope, all sniper have it, it is the scope you get when you 
[right-click] once. X8 is another sniper scope, it is the most powerful scope 
and appears when you [right-click] twice.

[] "I Will achieve true 1337-ness once I master the Scout" - My Friend
[]----Quote-----------------------------------------------------------------[]

As said above, the Scout is a true indicator of skill a sniper and an overall 
player has. This gun is quick, deadly, and most important, silent. Many 
people hate this gun, and it is used rarely, which is unfortunate. True this 
gun cannot kill in one shot, and it ACTUALLY TAKES SKILL TO OPERATE *cough* 
AWP *cough* 

When using this gun, make sure you aim for the head, hitting any other part 
of the body will do either 70 damage or 30 damage, depending on where you hit 
them. If you are ever ambushed with a scout, hope that you bough a decent 
pistol and fire away. If you are trouble with your pistol or it's simply not 
cutting it, I hope you bough some 'nades 'coz you'll need em. HEs can kill 
whoever's after you, Flashes can blind a guy so you can kill him or make some 
distance between you and your opponent so you wipe his head clean off with 
your scout. Smokes will provide cover and (possibly) lag up your opponents 
comp so he'll start lagging, which is your time to strike.

This gun will take lots of practice to be good at so to improve your aim you 
may want to play a map such as ScoutzKnifez or play against bots. This gun is 
worth learning and once you have mastered it, (almost) nothing can stop you.

The one shot kill gun, the AWP is the most controversial gun in the game. 
Many call this gun a noob stick and that only noobs use it, when really this 
gun can't used by noobs effectively, sure they may be able to score some 
kills but a true sniper could kill you before you knew you had something to 
shoot at.

This gun is best used in long range because it's a sniper but at close I've 
seen many people kill with this. Unscoped this gun is not very accurate and 
if you ever to use this gun unscoped you better pull out your pistol and 
spray and pray.

In reality, this gun is very easy to avoid and to take down. Say you are 
playing Dust, and a Terrorist is AWPing the underpass, you can do many 
things to kill him, first off avoid the entire area, this is the easiest way 
not to get killed by the AWP, and instead of rushing the underpass, rush the 
Tunnels and flank him from there.

You could also smoke the Underpass to allow your teammates to run through, 
once you have taken up cover, emerge from behind the crates from time to 
time and fire upon the AWPer and then take cover again behind the crates, 
simple.

With 1.6, auto-sniper have been greatly improved damage wise and you can 
actually kill with them (!) This is good so now people have more choice for a 
sniper rifle other than the AWP or Scout. This rifle has a x4 and x8 scope 
and unlike more sniper rifles, after you fire off a shot, you do not have to 
put a new bullet in, hence the name auto-sniper.

This gun is best used in long ranges because it is a sniper rifle, but since 
it is automatic it can be used in close because if you miss, you can fire 
immediately after. Its best to aim for the head using this gun and then if 
you miss you will at least hit his neck or upper body to do more damage.

| Strategies
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

- Aim for the head, the golden rule of sniping

- Aim to Kill, not to Ill, another golden rule of sniping, if you don't kill 
your enemy in the first shot he will be alerted of your presence, and will 
likely hunt you down, if this happens predict where he will come to attack 
you and place your crosshairs on that spot, is this fails your best bet is 
to pick up another gun, use your pistol or use grenades

- Don't Use the x8 Scope unless your target is REALLY far away, The x8 scope 
(two right clicks) makes your target easier to see, but you cannot see his 
surroundings, and wont be able to see ambushes making you a sitting duck, 
use the x4 scope as much ass possible, if you absolutely must use the x8 
scope, keep it for a maximum of 10 seconds, even if you need more time, 
zoomout and make sure your position is secure, then resume sniping

- Quick switch out of a Zoom, instead of right clicking out of your scope, 
quick switch out to your pistol or knife or 'nade as it is much faster

- Snipers CAN be used in close range combat, since most the sniper rifles 
are accurate as hell, they can be used in close combat. Of course this does 
not apply to the Scout, but the AWP and the Auto-Sniper can be used in 
medium and close range because of their accuracy, however if you are ever 
faced in a close combat situation, better hope you brought a pistol that 
packs some heat 'coz that sniper is near useless

- At close range Firing an Unscoped Sniper Rifle can net you a kill, as 
said above, at close range some snipers can get you some kills, but if you 
get ambushed, Scoping it will take too long, instead take a chance with 
your unscoped rifle, this works best with the Auto-Sniper as if you miss 
once you can fire again, but with an AWP its trickier as you must load a 
new bullet into the gun but it can still be done

- Don't expect many Kills, Something I should mention about being a 
sniper is that even some of the best don't have positive ratios, good 
sniper ignore the score board and concentrate on the kill, sure you may not 
be on top on the score board, but you will know that each of the kill you
made was one of skill, which is worth much more than being on top of the 
score board

- Chuck the Sniper is Necessary, if your teammates need help and your 
Sniper Rifle doesn't cut it, chuck it and find a more suitable weapon and 
help your team out, if you cant find a good weapon, use your pistol 
(hope you aren't still using that Glock)

- Help your team out! This is a team game (many will argue with this and 
tell me "This is Pub, there is no team" that is not true, this is still 
a team game, it doesn't matter if you are playing in a Pub, a scrim or a 
CPL match, but I digress) if you are last person alive, you will piss of 
a lot of people if you don't complete the Objectives or camp, now this 
doesn't apply if you are playing the Defending team as your objective is 
to camp

If someone on the other team is annilatiing your team, make him your prime 
target as the longer he lives, the more of your teammates die, which is 
a bad thing

- If the map has no good sniping spots, rush with your team, but stay in the 
background so as not to be ambushed, but close enough so you can kill a few 
enemies, just be careful to watch your flank, failure to do so will result 
in you hitting the floor

||==========================================================================||
|| [6.0] General and Misc. Strategies
||==========================================================================||


|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| [6.1] Anti-Sniper
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Whenever a sniper comes into a game and owns everyone, Most people resort to 
name calling and accusing the sniper of hacking. Bullets are louder than 
words. 
Instead of flaming the guy, try killing him. There are many ways to deal with 
snipers; name calling and kicking/banning are not one of them.

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Multi-Targets
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

Being a sniper I know the one of the worst things in when you have more than 
1 target, you have a handful of bullets and all of your targets have to be 
exterminated or you will be the one who hits the floor. Snipers can't avoid a
multi target situation giving the rusher more of a chance to survive and less
chance for the sniper to eliminate all of the threats. You have more chances 
of staying alive if you move together.

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| 'Nades
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

All 'nades are great against snipers. Flashbangs will temporarily blind the 
sniping making him vulnerable for attack. Smokes make it so the sniper can't 
see a certain area letting the rushers pass unharmed. HE 'nades are 
especially useful because traditional sniper nests are corners or small 
rooms, and the smaller the room the more damage a HE 'nade will do.

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Flank Him
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

Flanking is when your target is facing/firing straight and you take an 
alternate route and shoot him from the side or the back where he least 
expects it. Snipers are especially venerable to close range attacks, so get 
as close as possible.

|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| [6.2] Anti-Hacker
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Hackers are probably the most worthless, annoying and lame people who play 
CS. They completely ruin the game for everyone else. If you hack all I can 
say is you won't get any better by hacking, you will get better by practicing, 
not cheating, so please stop using hacks, its just a game. Anywho there are 
many ways to stop hackers, or at least find them.

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Server Anti-Cheats
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

These are semi-popular, some people hate them, some love them. Personally I 
don't think they work and the only true anti-cheat is a better game code and 
more admins online at more times. The most popular is cheating death 
(http-//www.unitedadmins.com/cdeath.php), you will know servers are using CD 
when they have 'CD' or 'Cheating Death' somewhere in their name. In my 
experience as said before I don't have good beef with CD and don't play on 
servers with it a lot so I can't really comment on it. 

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Finding Hackers
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

Finding Hackers can be a tricky task, the line between '1337' and 'hacker' is 
blurred so much good people get kicked for hacking and vice versa. There are 
two main types of hacks, wall hacks and aimbots. 

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Finding Wallhacks
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

A wallhack is when a person can see and shoot through walls. Now, all guns 
can shoot through walls to some extent, but wall hacks let you shoot, and 
kill through walls, normally the best you can do while shooting through walls 
is lightly damage them and (if they don't have lots of health) kill them. 

Most 
hacks will conceal the fact they have wall hacks, say you are walking behind 
a wall and a hacker is on the other side, a smart hacker will likely wait 
until you could have saw you without the hack so your aren't suspicious. 
Unfortunately this works a lot of the time. You can only accuse someone of 
hacking when they kill you through a wall. Wall hacks are hard to find. 

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Finding Aimbots
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

Aimbots are much easier to find than wallhacks. An Aimbot is when the 
crosshairs will automatically aim at the head, causing an automatic headshot. 
Since you can tell when a person is getting headshots out the wazoo, you can 
usually tell who is hacking and how is not. Before you accuse someone of 
hacking, make sure YOU ARE 100% SURE.

Now, lots of people gets lots of headshots, hackers with aimbots CAN ONLY GET 
HEADSHOTS (to my knowledge) so if you think someone has hacks, and they get a 
non-HS kill, they likely are NOT hacking, if he get a HS kill, a normal kill 
and another HS kill, in a short period of time, they are NOT hacking. Hacks 
can be turned off and on, but it requires a console command which I'm 
assuming takes a while to type in.

You will look like a real jackass if you accuse someone and you find out they 
aren't hacking. One last note, just because a hacker dies, does not mean he 
doesn't hack, many hackers die on purpose so they don't arouse suspicion. 

|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| [6.3] Pistol Round
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Hated by some, loved by others the pistol round is the 1 round where everyone 
has the same type of weaponry and the 'my gun is bigger than yours' factor 
doesn't apply. 

Note- it is only considered a pistol round if everyone starts out with $1000 
or 
less.

Terrorists- Most if not all terrorists will end up buying the Desert Eagle 
or the Dualies (dualies are now $800) so I'm not going to try to deny that 
tradition, However, to save money if you see your entire team buying Eagles, 
consider buying ammo for the Glock, some armour or even a 'nade. Personally 
I choose my pistol on what my team is using, if I can buy armour, save money 
and pick a Desert Eagle from a fallen T, I'll do so. Plus if you live and 
bought a desert eagle, don't buy a gun, use the Eagle the following round.  

Counter-Terrorists- The CTs have more choice than the Ts when it comes to 
Pistol round, they can stick with there USP and buy armour or a nade, buy a 
Desert Eagle and ammo, or can buy a Five-Seven the 'style' pistol or buy a 
228. 
Whenever I'm CT during pistol round I always buy armour or ammo and pick up 
an 
Eagle from a Fallen T or CT.

| [6.11] General Strategies 
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

- Aim for the head 'nuff said

- Buy armour and if you can, a helmet, these greatly improve your chances of 
living

- Know the map, know all the routes, the camping spots etc, if it is your 
first time playing a map, go into spec mode and glide around and learn the 
layout of the map

- Use headphones, these make sure any sound goes directly into your ear and 
any out side noise gets filtered out

- All weapons can shoot through wall TO A CERTAIN EXTENT use this to your 
advantage

- Watch other players when you are dead, and do what they do

- Buy a microphone, these are extremely useful when planning strategies and 
alerting your teammates of incoming enemies as talking on the mic is faster 
than talking

- If you can't get a mic, use the radio commands

- Don't spam the mic, only use it for I'm game events

- Use nades, all 3 nades are useful, HE nades can flush out enemies, Smokes 
create cover from sniper fire and allow your teammates to get by with out 
being ripped to shreds, and flashes temporally blind an enemy so you can 
kill him without him shooting back.

- Jump around corners, its harder for an enemy to plant a head shot on you

- Keep moving, you should always stay moving unless you are ambushing an 
enemy, being stealthy or sniping, you should always keep moving

- Crouch to increase your accuracy, this is a must for any sharpshooter

- Pick a pistol according to your primary weapon, if your primary is best at
close range, pick a pistol that is good at long range fighting, and vice 
versa

- Don't go to the same place, good players learn fast, and great players 
learn even faster, just coz you pwned at a certain place, don't expect to do 
it again as every one will be waiting for you to pop your head out

- When defusing or planting bomb, always check for camping T or CTs, many 
camp at objectives ready to fire a bead in your skull

- Reload often

- Communicate, probably the most important part of CS, communicating is what 
keeps teams working, if you have a mic this is easier but if you don't you 
better hope you can type fast

- At point blank range don't crouch, if you crouch at this range you will 
likely get killed with a headshot as your opponent likely is firing at your 
body, crouching will shift this crosshairs to your head, giving him an easy 
kill

|| [7.0] Frequently Asked Questions
||==========================================================================||

People have not asked my these questions yet, I have merely taken questions 
of the forum and answered them for this guide.

|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| [7.1] Technical
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Q- Why do I lag on DSL or cable?

A- There are many reasons you may lag, one of them is NEVER leave things like 
Kazaa or DAP running in the background, this will cause HORRIBLE lag, if you 
don't use these or already tried closing them, but you still get lag, turn 
down your graphic options, another option is to find servers close to where 
you live, set the location filter at the bottom of the server list. If none 
of these work, type these in your console-

Rate 9999
cl_cmdrate 101
cl_updaterate 101

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question- Why do I have weapons in my left hand?

Answer- This is because you are playing in Software mode, go to the video 
menu from the options menu and change your graphics from software to Open GL.

|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| [7.2] Gameplay
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Question- Why is the AWP called the AWM in the game?

Answer- In the early version of the game, it was originally called the AWP, 
but some gun expert(s) told the devs this was wrong, and that it is actually 
called an AWM, not an AWP. So in the following release they changed the name 
to AWM, but the community kept calling it the AWP because it was easier to 
pronounce 'op' rather than 'a-w-m'. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question- How can I disable chat messages?

Answer- In the console put in the following- hud_saytext_time "0"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Question- What is FPS

Answer- Many things, short for First Person Shooter, but the one you are 
talking about means frames per second, or how fast your CS is going. You can 
view your FPS by typing "Net_graph3" in the console.
