So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
Notes: Some of the stuff written in here is downright nonsensical.

Counter-Strike: Source is the remake of the original Counter-Strike for the Source Engine, as well as the first released game to use that engine, roughly 2 weeks before Half-Life 2 came out.

Unused Maps


CSS-map-test speakers.png

A rather bizarre map for testing audio outputs. The audios played in this map dynamically change depending on what speaker configuration is being used. It could be initially loaded through the Audio tab in settings, although it was later removed for unknown reasons.

Loading the map unmodified will normally have ERROR models, as it still references the original playermodels from 2004, no longer included with the game.

Unused Map Content


Right below the map in CT Spawn, there is an inaccessible room, completely isolated from the rest of the map which contains a single boot prop. It is usually referred to as the boot room.

This American boot just kicked your ass back to Russia!


Like the original version, there's an inaccesible room containing a brush-based giraffe.

Unused Sounds


Sound Filename Notes
water_splash1.wav Low quality splash sounds.


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

This page or section needs more videos.
There's a whole lotta words or pictures here, but not enough videos. Please fix this.
Specifically: Record a demo, and playback on both games for comparison.

The USK 16 German version removes blood and plays a "surrender" animation when the player is killed.

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

violence_agibs 1
violence_ablood 1
violence_hgibs 1
violence_hblood 1


Whenever a hostage is killed, their model will seemingly duplicate.

Magic. *snort snort*

Revisional Differences

To do:
No dates (or context for that matter) at all.

Main Menu

The main menu was changed in an update. Some of these changes include:

  • The background was changed to depict two SEAL Team 6 soldiers in a brown background.
  • The Friends menu was removed and a total of 147 achievements were added.
  • The background could now be widescreen.
