ok i just downloaded this and OMG!!! first of all you dont even need Half life to play this and all you need is a prgram called STEAM which is what is allowing you to play 1.6, anyways back to CS, so i was playing this and i discovered a new weopen, a TACTICAL sheild and a couple of other guns, anyways so i play with these new VERY affective weopens and its so much fun, i was on a server and i was like :mob: :rifle1: :uzi2: :snipe1: :duel2: but not all at once :D anyways if you get a chance or have enough space i highly suggest downloading this :D

My friend has been telling me about 1.6.. I'm a little confused with this "steam thing". I've been playing counterstrike alot lately with my buds from school, I'll be sure to check this thing out :)
(I hear the smoke grenades are actually useful now!)

Is 1.6 based on the Condition Zero code? Boss mentioned a Tactical Shield which is available in it, Pnut mentioned better smoke grenades, so it sure sounds like it is. Haven't played Counter-Strike in a long time, which also reminds me...

1.6!
When did this happen? The last version I played was like 1.3 :animelol:

go here:

and search for:

steam2




as for my little mini review: no big change really. a bit more helpfull with the menus. reminds me of UnrealTournament but much better. The shield is cool. i had a shodown with someone on a server. i got to kill him with a pistol. he had an AK47.

as for bugs? of course there are bugs, its a beta. like the purchasing menu sometimes acts up, Steam2 froze a couple of times initially after installation.

the thing that worries me the most is the possibility of over use of the shield. its nice and all. doesnt defend you 100% but on one server everybody runs around with it. and being a T, your job got a LOT harder.

If you want to try and show your L33Tn3ss swing buy my clans server su.nuclearfallout.net:27015 We have some great players and the pings are great. Some guys from Cali get pings of 40 or lower. Server is in Seattle.

Look for [SU]Juggernaut

I mean that with the fixer of bugs come a whole lot of new bugs. I'm quite sure that many other people will find holes in which they'll turn Cheater Strike back to it's own true form, full of cheating llamas.

That's neat! I like the blast shield. Unfortunately they always manage to find a vulnerable spot on me and kill me... bastards... :mad:

Bob Gnarly

theres only on spot they can hit you thow and its in the feet but theres a glitch, where if the shield gets hit in a row in the same spot in starts to lose its power
