I have really worked hard on the FAQ. So please don't just Copy & Paste this on to your own website. This is my work and I should be given all the credit. HANDGUNS: Name: HK USP Cost: $500 Ammo: .45 ACP - 12 rounds per clip - 48 rounds total Secondary: Silencer Designed Range: Close Availability: Counter-Terrorists Details: You start of this weapon if you are in the Counter Terrorist side. It is known to be the 2nd best overall Handgun. With Its accuracy, quietness and reloading speed the USP has attracted many Counter-Strike players. Its Fast firing rate has also surprised many people. Another point taken into consideration should be its cost; It's the 2nd cheapest pistol with all its abilities. Tips: Headshots, and don't silence it for fun, Silencing reduces the power a lot. Name: Glock18 Cost: $400 Ammo: 9mm - 20 rounds per clip - 100 reserved for later Secondary: 3-Shotburst fire Designed Range: Close Availability: Terrorists Details: Although it has a quite big clip size and the fastest reloading speed amongst all the other handguns, the Glock still remains unpopular. Not many people use it, the main reason of that lies in its FirePower. The damage it does is quite low and It is highly possible if you are playing with one of these that you may not get kills. Tips: Headshots, take full advantage of the big clip. Name: IMI Desert Eagle Cost: $650 Ammo: .50 - 7 in weapon - 35 reserved for later Secondary: None Designed Range: Close - Far Availability: Both sides. Details: The Accuracy of the Desert Eagle is its only disadvantage. It is known as the deadliest amongst all of the Pistols. With its high firepower it has gained a lot of popularity. Most people feel as If this is the only pistol that can face the threats of Rifles and SMG's. If the Desert Eagle is used correctly with 3 shot bursts the Accuracy remains as an advantage, For all the beginners, I wouldn't recommend this handgun but if you learn to use it with bursts, It may become your new best friend. ^_^ Tips: Don't just keep shooting since their are only 7 bullets then a reload. Be wise bursts and headshots should do the job. Name: SigP228 Cost: $600 Ammo: .357 - 13 rounds per clip - 52 reserved for later Secondary: None Designed Range: Close Availability: Both sides Details: Not a lot of people buy this gun, the reason of that is its firing rate can be slow, so most people would go and buy a USP or a Deagle instead of this gun. Another reason is that it is more expensive than the USP, which is far better than this gun by every way. Tips: None. Name: Beretta 96G Elite Cost: $1,000 Ammo: 9mm - 30 rounds per clip - 120 reserved for later Secondary: None Designed Range: Close Availability: Terrorists Details: With its Really, really slow reloading speed the Berreta has fired another weakness in it's profile. The damage this gun does is not impressive at all. The weakest point apart from its reloading speed is its cost of $1000. I mean just look at the USP and Deagle they are like Half the cost of this weapon and far better than it in every way. If I were you I won't even look forward at buying one of these. Tips: You guys want a really good tip for this pistol? Don't buy it! That's going to help a lot. Name: Five-Seven Cost: $750 Ammo: 5.7mm - 20 rounds per clip - 100 reserved for later Secondary: None Designed Range: Close Availability: Counter-Terrorists Details: The Five-Seven has one of the best Accuracy. Its 20 round clip and decent firing rate can also be an advantage. However the Negatives start to rise as the pistol can do very less damage. It also has quite high cost compared to the other pistols. Tips: Since the damage is low and the Accuracy is high, always go for headshots since this would increase the Damage. SHOTGUNS Name: Benelli M3 Super 90 Cost: $1,700 Ammo: 12 gauge - 8 rounds per clip - 32 reserved for later Secondary: None Designed Range: Close Availability: Both sides Details: Like the other shotgun in the Counter-Strike Arsenal this 'pump' action shotgun can be a One-shot killer too. Keep in mind it is only good at close range. At far rage you won't be able to kill an enemy no matter how hard you try. . The M3 shotgun has a really slow firing rate and reloading speed. If you fire and miss an enemy than you can guarantee yourself killed. Tips: Use only at close range and aim accurately. Name: Benelli XM1014 Cost: $3000 Ammo: 12 gauge - 7 in weapon - 32 reserved for later Secondary: None Designed Range: Close Availability: Both sides Detail: Unlike the other shotgun this one is an 'auto'. It fires much faster than the pump action shotgun (M3), which is the reason why it is much more expensive than it. The Beneli XM1014 is a One-Shot killer but also remember what I told you that Shotguns are only effective at close range. At far range only 2/15 shots would hit the enemy doing very less damage. Tips: Use only at close range. SUB MACHINE GUNS Name: MP5 Navy Cost: $1,500 Ammo: 9mm - 30 rounds per clip - 120 reserved for later Secondary: None Designed Range: Close - medium Availability: Both sides Detail: The most popular Sub Machine Gun is the Mp5Navy. With a quite fast firing rate and fast reloading speed with decent damaging power this weapon has proved it self to be one of the best. Its accuracy is also unimaginable for a fast firing SMG. Its cheap price has also shocked quite a lot of people compared to its abilities. The only disadvantage this weapon has is its inability to shoot targets at far-range. If it was a far range weapon too, It would have taken the game being the most deadly of all. Tips: Try not to go for enemies far away since the MP5 Navy wasn't made for that. Name: Steyr TMP Cost: $1250 Ammo: 9mm - 30 rounds per clip - 120 reserved for later Secondary: None Designed Range: Close Availability: Counter Terrorists Details: The Steyr TMP is the probably the worst SMG overall. Although it has a fast firing rate, fast reloading speed and is also damn quiet the damage it does to an enemy is really not worth it. Not many people use the small gun and they shouldn't. Tips: Sneak up behind enemies if possible since going right in front of them could be suicide. Name: FN P90 Cost: $2,450 Ammo: 5.7mm - 50 rounds per clip - 100 reserved for later. Secondary: None Designed Range: Close Availability: Both sides Details: The P90 has the most unusual shape of all. I don't know what the makers were thinking before making the gun. Anyway lets get down to business. The P90 has a really good Firing rate although the damage it does isn't impressive. The gun is quite good if you would like to play in a small map. Tips: Never spray with this weapon. If you do you can just miss you target by miles. Spraying would only be good If you enemy is 5 feet away from you. Name: Mac 10 Cost: $1,400 Ammo: .45 - 30 rounds per clip - 96 reserved for later Secondary: None Designed Range: Close Availability: Terrorists Details: The damage a Mac10 does is really surprising, Its rate of fire is average, the only negative point is that Its accuracy. The gun will fly bullets everywhere when sprayed with it. Tips: 2 things if you buy it than don't spray with it, If you love spraying then crouch and fire. Name: Hk UMP 45 Cost: $1,700 Ammo: .45 - 25 rounds per clip - 90 reserved for later Secondary: None Designed Range: Close Availability: Both sides Details: This is most likely to be the Second best SMG in Counter-Strike. It does good amount of damage like the Mac10, It has good Accuracy. The only disadvantage is that the gun takes quite a lot of time to reload. It can also be a bit loud which could awaken the enemies nearby. Tips: Don't just keep firing and wasting your bullets, this weapon isn't made for that kind of fun because everytime you keep wasting it you come a step nearer to its long reloads. RIFLES Name: Ak-47 Cost: $2,500 Ammo: 7.62mm - 30 rounds per clip - 90 reserved for later Secondary: None Designed Range: Close - Far Availability: Terrorists Details: The Gun in Counter-Strike that has won the heart of most Counter-Strike players. It does unbelievable amount of damage and fires quite fast; the two abilities have shocked many of the Counter-Strike players. Another fact is that it is effective in all ranges unlike the Mp5 Navy. The only disadvantage the gun has is its accuracy. If you spray too much don't expect yourself to hit the target. Tips: Although the accuracy is quite low for the Ak-47 that can be taken care of by small 3-5 headshot bursts. If you get one correct headshot then it could mean death for the enemy. Never ever spray with this lethal weapon. Name: Sig 552 Commando Cost: $3,500 Ammo: 5.56mm - 30 rounds per clip - 90 reserved for later Secondary: Zoom Designed Range: Close to Long Availability: Terrorists Details: The Commando has an above average rate of firing for a Rifle (not as much as the ak-47) and it does reasonable amount of damage. Its accuracy isn't good at all. Also It reloads quite slow that can be another weak point. The Zoom feature can really increase its accuracy by a lot. Although its accuracy is not as bad as the Ak-47's this gun still remains a question for many players. Maximum advantage can be taken with this gun if you follow the tips. If followed Correctly this gun may become really, really deadly. I would vote this the 3rd best Rifle Amongst all. Tips: Always, Always use the zoom. It increases its accuracy by a lot. Rather than just spraying the whole round at your enemy learn to use 3-5 shot bursts. Name: Colt M4A1 Carbine Cost: $3,100 Ammo: 5.56mm - 30 rounds per clip - 90 reserved for later Secondary: Silencer Designed Range: Close - Far Availability: Counter Terrorists Details: One of the most popular Assault Rifle for the Counter-Terrorists this gun has gained a LOT of respect amongst them. With nearly the same abilities as the Ak-47 this gun stands as its complete enemy. The M4A1 does quite a lot of damage to any enemy (Not as much as an Ak-47). Its Rate of Fire is the same as the Ak-47's Its Accuracy is much better than the Ak-47's. Another huge advantage for this weapon is its Silencer. At times when Accuracy is much needed a Silencer just does the work for the M4A1. Around the Web their have been many debates as to which gun is better; The Ak-47 or the M4A1. In my belief the Ak-47 takes the place as it is more deadly and some how gets you more headshots. However the Recoil of the gun won't suit beginners so they would vote for an M4A1 which has quite less recoil especially with the Silencer added. Tips: Try not to target many far range enemies without the silencer, If so you plan to do target them then go with the 3-5 shot burst technique. At close range forget about the bursts and Spray the hell out of the nearby Enemies. Name: Steyr AUG Cost: $3,500 Ammo: 5.56mm - 30 rounds per clip - 90 reserved for later Secondary: Zoom Designed Range: Close - Far Availability: Counter-Terrorists Details: The AUG has a rather slow reloading speed, which may not help you out at some occasions. It has Okay Damaging power and average Firing rate for a Rifle. However when it comes down to its accuracy the gun is quite a disadvantage for it. To me this gun looks like another copy of the Sig 552 Commando, but a bit less weak. Tips: Headshots. Don't fire for no reason it may bring you closer and closer to the slow reloads. Burst Fire with this weapon at all times except at Close range. When sniping with this always use the Zoom as it increases the accuracy. Name: Steyr Scout (Sniper Rifle) Cost: $2,750 Ammo: 7.62mm - 10 rounds per clip - 60 reserved for later Secondary: Zoom Designed Range: Medium - Far Availability: Both sides Details: Not a popular Sniper Rifle at all, but to many veterans of Counter-Strike this is regarded as the most dangerous Sniper Rifle of all. It can take an enemy down in just 2 shots; if aimed near the neck area then One shot would be enough for the kill. For a Sniper Rifle the Scout is really quiet, which is a huge advantage. As for the Firing rate isn't good not at all fast since it takes time firing bullets one~by~one. Tips: Don't try to go for the Enemies who are running since the gun fires one shot at a time. Go for the headshots if you want instant kills. And ofcourse use the zoom. Name: Artic Warfare Magnum (Sniper Rifle) Cost: $4,750 Ammo: .338 Laupa - 10 rounds per clip - 30 in reserve Secondary: Zoom Designed Range: Medium - Far Availability: Both sides Details: Nearly every person has picked one of these at least once in their whole lives which make the AWM (Artic Warfare Magnum) the most popular Sniper Rifle of all time. The main attraction of CS players to this weapon, is that it can kill in one shot even If you hit on the body. The disadvantage takes over this weapon and many people aren't aware of them. I don't know from where I should start the list. Okay Firstly its damn expensive ($4,750) take the scout for example its nearly half the price. It's quite heavy! It's too loud, If you shoot from one end I can guarantee you will hear it miles away. It also has the slowest Rate of Fire even slower than the Scout does. Tips: Never go too close to the enemy with this weapon. Always have a pistol incase you get involved in a close range combat. Name: G3SG/1 (Sniper Rifle) Cost: $5,000 Ammo: 7.62mm - 20 rounds per clip - 60 reserved for later Secondary: Zoom Designed Range: NO IDEA! I don't know what the designers were thinking before making this gun... Availability: Terrorists Details: According to me this gun is a complete waste of space in the whole arsenal. Its Firing rate is slow, Its not quiet at all. It one damn heavy weapon, it takes quite a long time to reload, It doesn't do much damage at all, which makes it quite weak. For the last disadvantage the G3 is 5,000 bucks! You could get 3 perfect MP5 Navys for that! Tips: Don't even look to buy this weapon. If you like to Commit suicide then go ahead give the weapon a try... Name: Sig 550 (Sniper Rifle) Cost: $4,200 Ammo: 5.56mm - 30 rounds per clip - 90 in reserve Secondary: Zoom Designed Range: Medium - Far Availability: Counter Terrorists Details: The Sig550 has quite good accuracy and quite good rate of Fire. It can be deadly at times when aimed for the head with it. The Sig550 is also quite loud and heavy. Overall if I were you this gun won't be my choice. Tips: Aim for the head. Don't move around too much with it, in other words fix yourself at one spot. MACHINE GUN Name: PARA Cost: $5,750 Ammo: 5.56mm - 100 rounds per clip - 200 reserved for later Secondary: None Designed Range: Close Availability: Both sides Details: The only Machine gun in the whole Counter-Strike arsenal is the PARA. For one big disadvantage is that its the most expensive weapon, which forces a lot of players not to buy it. Don't get too comfy that isn't the only weak point in this weapon. It is the heaviest weapon too! It takes ages to reload and most of all it has no accuracy; it is full of recoil after its second shot fired. I have seen only a few people master this weapon. In most experienced players' view, this would be the worst weapon. Tips: At far range aim below the Enemies' feet while crouching if you want a headshot. Also try 2shot bursts and headshots. EQUIPMENT Name: Flashbang Cost: $200 Ammo: 2 Details: This weapon is supposed to blind people when thrown at them. It can be used in situations where their are a lot of Snipers and they are guarding a building then you could just throw a Flashbang blind them and at the same time escape into your target area. These are most effective when groups of enemies (4 - 6 enemies) are coming towards your location, just pop a flash at them and they all will get blinded. Then it would be easier for you to kill them. Name: HE Grenade Cost: $300 Ammo: 1 Details: The most deadly in the Equipment list is a HE Nade. If one of these lands beside a person they can seriously kill him or do a lot of damage. These are best used when their is an enemy sniping, just throw one in where the enemy is and It If you aim is really good you might be able to kill the enemy. If your aim isn't you would have at least reduced the Enemy's health to the 20's. Then it would be easy to kill him from here since you only need one shot from a Rifle to terminate him. These have one thing similar to Flashbangs that is that they can be effective on groups of people. Just throw one at a group of enemies(accurately) and it would be enough to reduce 50% of all their health. Name: Smoke Grenade Cost: $300 Ammo: 1 Details: This weapon can also be helpful especially for Snipers. This weapon is used to blind too, but the only difference between this and a Flashbang is that the Flash disappears in 3 seconds while a Smoke Nade can last 30 seconds but not with the same brightness. Snipers can throw this at a door/entrance people won't know what's going on at the point since It would be full of smoke. As they would come out the entrance the Sniper far away can easily spot them and they would be dead in seconds. I hope people would be helped out by my Guide to weapons. This all is my experience I have has with all the weapons in the past years. Also the information is quite accurate. Thanks!
