Tips and Tricks for Counter-Strike 1.6

Ask a question
Counter-Strike is the most-played shooting video game in history. The game follows the confrontation between two teams: terrorists versus anti-terrorists. Team missions include placing or disabling bombs, escorting or assassinating VIPs, and rescuing or holding hostages.

Before beginning a round, the players on each team will be able to buy military equipment with the money obtained in the previous rounds. They may purchase weapons, grenades, bulletproof vests, and even explosive deactivation equipment. (If you do not have money, you can use the Counter-Strike 1.6 cheats found in this article.) The victorious team will be the one that can fulfill all of its military objectives or eliminate all of the opposing team's players. If at the end of the round there is no winner, the team that did not accomplish its goals will lose by elimination.
