Counter Strike 1.6 is a legendary modification of the popular FPS game Half-Life 1 that managed to instantly find worldwide success as one of the most popular online games of all time. Originally conceived by just several modders and programmers, this online team-based tactical shooter soon managed to grow into an unstoppable juggernaut that received several upgrades, expansions, e-sport support, complete rebuilds in new engines, and even a shortly-lived singleplayer spinoff!

The reign of Counter-Strike 1.6 started while it was offered to players as a free mod for Half-Life, bringing with itself a completely redesigned multiplayer experience that was centered on team-based military shootouts in a wide variety of maps and play modes. While the original game supported several fun modes of play, eventually the most popular one emerged to be a bomb defusal mode in which two teams of five players strived to either plant a bomb on a predefined bomb site, or to protect that site. The elimination of the opposing team can also lead to victory if the bomb was not planted.

After years of development, the original CS game mode reached version 1.6, which remained in active use for a long time, being hailed by the online community as the best version of this game. Even though newer versions of this game eventually came out (Counter-Strike Source and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive), many CS players still prefer to play this original version. Some do it for nostalgia, some because of its specific content offering (maps and weapons), and some because their old PC hardware cannot properly handle more modern and system spec-heavy sequels.

Counter-Strike 1.6 is available on PC as a freeware product that can be used unrestricted by anyone who has purchased Half-Life. In this mode, the game comes with all standard maps, modes of play, weapons, character skins, and more. The game is optimized for all modern versions of Windows (ranging from XP to the newest Windows 10) and can be played on PC configurations with really modest hardware resources.

Modes of Play

Counter-Strike 1.6 supports three basics modes of play, in which teams consisting of Terrorist fighters and Counter-Terrorist police members competing to fulfill various goals.

Hostage Rescue – Two teams compete to either protect hostages or to rescue and transport them to the extraction point.

Bomb defused – The most popular Counter-Strike mode. Two teams compete to plant the bomb, defuse a bomb or eliminate the opposing team.

Assassination – Two teams compete to either protect or assassinate a special VIP character, which lacks the ability to carry weapons.
