Counter-Strike 1.6 Money system
The way the gameplay of CS is built, at the beginning of each round players are give some time (usually 15 seconds) to purchase their own weapons via buy menu. In order to get these weapons we need to have some in-game capital. The default amount we get at the very start is $800
which will allow us to buy a pistol but isn't nearly enough to get a rifle or even a shotgun. That is why we need to earn that money via eliminating enemies and completing certain tasks some of which were discussed earlier. The whole reward system isn't hard to understand but is essential to learn, hence, here it is:
- Killing an enemy: $300
- Winning team reward: $3250
- Losing team reward before timer ends: $1400
- Winning by detonating C4: $3500
- Winning by defusing C4: $3600
- Planting C4 reward: $800
- Winning by hostage rescue: $3600
- Eliminating VIP reward: $2500
- Rescuing VIP reward: $2500
- Rescuing a hostage reward: $1000
- An attempt to rescue a hostage reward: $150
- Injuring a hostage: -$150
- Killing a hostage: -$1500
- Teamkill: -$3300
Since the initial release of Counter-Strike in 1999 the game has evolved a lot and therefore nowadays there are different gameplay varieties which modify the very goals and tasks which players need to accomplish in order to win or score points. All of those mods are server based and don't involve any external add-ons
aside from additional resources that are downloaded automatically at server join. Let's talk about the most popular and famous ones.
The most simple and original CS 1.6
gameplay, which we already have talked about. It mostly involves shooting down enemies and carrying out tasks like bomb plant/defuse, rescuing hostages and VIP players
. This mod doesn't need any additional resources aside from maps if a server uses a non-standard one. Classic gameplay is the one you need to study first if you're a beginner.
This is a pretty straightforward mod based mostly on the idea of shooting the enemies without carrying out any other additional tasks. After a player dies they get automatically respawned within seconds
and the game is just one endless round. This type of modification came from games like Unreal Tournament and Quake - very fun, lots of shootings and constant pressure to reach the top.
This one is very similar to CSDM - a mod where you get respawned automatically. However, it's a lot more complicated then the previous one. In it, players race to take the lead by reaching new levels and finally winning by completing all of them faster than the rest. Each level provides a specific weapon
: starting with the most simple pistols, players gradually move onto rifles, machine guns and finally grenade and than knife. That type of gameplay is very addicting and satisfying.
A mod based around games like Left4Dead: zombies vs people
. It all starts with one of the teammates getting infected with the virus and transforming into a zombie. After that their job is to infect as many as they can essentially leading to world domination. Humans' goal is to eliminate all zombies before they can prevail. A very fun and interesting mod that is very popular right now, hence there are many amazing servers to play at.
Now this is a very unique mod, where the tasks are quite complicated. Players are divided into two teams: prisoners and guards
. There are usually three of four times more guards then the prisoners. One of the guard - the warrant - gives commands to the other team which everyone must obey. If somebody decides not to listen to him, guards have a right to execute them. Every jailbreak map is a prison with cells, a yard and special places like a soccer field and other ones. The mod is very interesting and it is a lot of fun to play after you learn all of the rules.
This modification is also very popular. The main goal here is to finish the map
while one of the players is put into a secured location from where they can activate special traps
that will kill players who get into them. Upon finishing the map, players can easily eliminate the trap-activator. Nowadays, apart from that main task, there are different variations of gameplay. It could be a zombie day: terrorist turns into a zombie and is teleported on the players base from where he can run around and infect others. Invis day: terrorist becomes invisible and after teleporting to the base starts murdering players. There are many other days and all of them are fun to play.
This modification is similar to deathrun in its task: finishing the map. However, to play this mod you have to be able to surf which implies using inclined surfaces and jumping from one of them to another
until the map is done. Another variation of surf is based more around shooting enemies while surfing around. Both types of this gameplay are a lot of fun and you should 100% try it.
Just like previous two, the main goal here is to run the map from start to finish. Only here you will need to be able to do long jumps from on surface to another
. There is no shooting involved and these types of maps can easily be played in offline mode, however, it's always more interesting to do it with other players. There is a timer you can activate at the start so you will know which one of you finishes first.
This modification is based around the idea of hide and seek game: one team are chasing the other with knives, the other one are trying to run away
. All maps usually have a lot of ladders and high surfaces. If you fall - you die. The idea is to outdo your enemies and get away safe. This type of gameplay is also a lot of fun and a must-play for sure.
