Unused Level Content


In a July 7, 2005 update, the cs_assault map was added. For unknown reasons, it has an inaccessible room, completely isolated from the rest of the map which contains a boot. So, it's usually referred to as the boot room.

This American boot just kicked your ass back to Russia!


A map to test the speaker settings with. It was removed from the options for unknown reasons.

Unused Sounds


Sound Filename Notes
3dmeagle.wav From Half-Life.
water_splash1.wav Low quality splash sounds.


Sound Filename Notes


Sound Filename Notes
garage_tone.wav Unused eerie atmospheric noises.


Sound Filename Notes


Sound Filename Notes


Sound Filename Notes
rumble_rain.wav A windy variant of rumble_rain_nowind.wav.


Sound Filename Notes


The following all originate from either Half-Life or Half-Life 2.

Sound Filename Notes
bell1.wav Same as stuck1.wav.
blip2.wav Used for bot debugging.


Sound Filename Notes
bass.wav All of these sounds are used in test_speakers.bsp. The map has been removed from the in-game menu and can only be accessed via console.
stuck1.wav An entry in a file suggests that these sounds were used for bot debugging when they get stuck.

V.I.P. Mode

In the audio files, there is one only for the radio chat. They were going to bring the mode back into the game but only mods have brought it back.

Sound Comment(s)
"Protect the V.I.P., team!"
(Source: Counter-Strike Wikia)

Valve's Gift Grab 2011

Sound Comment(s)
Exactly like Team Fortress 2.

Regional Differences

To do:
Record demo, and playback on both games for comparison.

The USK 16 German version removed the blood and has you lie down when you get killed then disappear.

To enable this, enter the following commands in the in-game console (~):

violence_agibs 1
violence_ablood 1
violence_hgibs 1
violence_hblood 1		


If you were to kill a hostage, two of that same model will show up.

Magic. *snort snort*
