Display all cheat codes

Enable the mp_free code repeatedly press [Tab]. All the codes in the game will eventually be displayed.

Play as the enemy

Start the game with bots or multiplayer at any map you must choose your team. At the selection screen, type 6m1i0 or 6m2i0 and start the game. Your team will see you as an enemy and they will start shooting. Enable "Friendly fire" so they cannot kill you. The other team, your real enemies, will see you as a friend and will not shoot. You can easily kill (hunt) them. Note: If this trick does not work the first time, try it every time you die and you must choose your team again. If you are Counter-terrorist, type 6m2i0 and you will be dressed like a terrorist. If you are Terrorist, type 6m1i0 to be dressed like a Counter-terrorist. Note: This code is not a console cheat -- type it at the "Choose Your Team" screen.

Edit weapons

Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit any "weapon*.txt" file in the "\cstrike\sprites" folder in the game folder. Edit any of the values to change how that weapon behaves during the game.

Key binding

To activate codes easier, bind them to keys. For example, type bind v "impulse 101" at the console window to bind the "$16,000" code to the "V" key.

Key binding to buy weapons

Type bind <key> "buy;menuselect<number>;menuselect <number>;buy;menuselect 6 (or 7 to buy ammo)" . For example, type bind v "buy;menuselect 4;menuselect 6;buy;menuselect 6" at the console window to set the "AI Artic Warfare Magnum" gun code to the "V" key.

Temporary Terrorist appearance as Counter-Terrorist in Beta 6.1

Type bind <key> "chooseteam;menuselect 4;menuselect 3" (for Counter-Terrorist only). Your whole body will change into Arctic suit. Keep pressing the key that was bound to that command.

Blood and bits go up to sky in Beta 6.1

Type sv_gravity -99 at the console window. Note: Do not use this in the host (server) machine.

Super speed in all Beta versions

Type bind <key> "sv_friction -9999" on the server machine. Then always press that key.

Aiming for all weapons in all Beta versions

Note: This code can only be activated when sever machine as the sv_cheats 1 and restart codes in use. During game play, type bind <key> "fov 99". Press that key if you change to a new weapon.

Kick sever from console machine on all Beta versions

When you start a round, type 255 G and H characters.
gvbetu yigu, rfe,

Sierra logo during game

Type impulse 99 at the console window two or three times while you are alive.

Temporary invincibility

Type bind <key> "setinfo model ../oranget" during game play. Keep pressing the key that was bound to that command to become invincible.

Temporary SAS appearance as terrorist

Type bind <key> "setinfo model sas" (for terrorist only). Your whole body will change into UK SAS suit. Keep pressing the key that was bound to that command.

Get 90 bullets for Usp.45 Pistol

Buy a MAC-10 and all its bullets, then buy a Usp.45 Pistol.

Get 120 bullets for Glock Pistol

Buy a MP5 and all its bullets, then buy a Glock Pistol. Note: If you already have it, you do not have to buy another one.

Get 98 bullets for Scout

Buy a Scout, shoot one bullet and reload. Then, buy the bullets again.

Get 120 bullets for Steyr TMP

Buy a MP5 and all its bullets, then buy a TMP.

Get 59 bullets for Usp.45 pistol

Buy a Usp pistol, shoot one bullet and reload. Buy the bullets again.

Get 89 bullets for H&K Sniper Rifle

Buy a scout and all the bullets. Shoot once, reload, and buy the bullets again. Then, buy a H&K sniper rifle.

Sniping Ak47

Aim the crosshair in the middle of the enemy and shoot the bullets two by two. When the crosshair becomes large, run and reload. The target should be dead after you shoot the first two bullets.

Splatter bones and body tissue

Type bind backspace "impulse 102" at the console window, then press repeatedly press [Backspace] key and bones, tissue, and blood will scatter all over the place.

Increased target visibility

This trick works for any client on a multi-player game. Enable the gl_nobind 1 code to make all the textures look like a series of numbers and letters. Then, spray paint or have someone else spray paint. By luck or chance, the map will be a flat unlit color of the spray paint and all the textures of the sprites will be the image of the spray logo. All players will be a brighter shade of the color, making them very easy to see. Note: All the fonts will be corrupted, making typing messages or console commands difficult. To solve this, restart the game. Since navigating around the flat-colored level with this vision is difficult, you might want to bind an alias to a key to turn it on or off. In the following example, holding down the key toggles it on; releasing the key toggles it off.

alias +see "gl_nobind 1"
alias -see "gl_nobind 0"
bind <key> +see

Overbright in multi-player mode

To enable overbright in multi-player mode, enter the following codes:

gl_overbright 1
gamma 256
brightness 256

This will brighten the entire map and player models as well, so you can see someone hiding in a dark place better.


Easy terrorist bombing

First, make sure you have the bomb and a vehicle that you can drive. Then, have a friend drive the truck, robot, etc. up to the bomb point. Start to place the bomb, but move so you can place it on the vehicle (which should be directly on top of the target. Have your friend drive away and park the vehicle somewhere hidden. Run away and the CT's will not know what is happening. You can also do this when playing with bots, but it will take longer.


Air walking

In the assault map, go to the hostage room. Note: You need two people to do this trick. Get one or two hostages to follow and ask your friend to squat on the floor below the window on top of you. Throw a grenade up the window and it will break open. Jump on your teammate's head then have a hostage jump on top of the window. You can now swim up. Swim up for three seconds and press [Left]. You can now walk in the air and fire head shots at your enemies

See through smoke in Milita

Go down to the tunnel camera monitors and find a place where someone threw a smoke grenade. Move around, and the smoke will seem to turn into nothing. Then, when you go the opposite way, the smoke returns. This is useful for the Terrorists when checking the monitors for any Counter-Terrorists are hiding behind the smoke. Note: This does not make a change to the other player's view of the smoke.

Get to the top faster in assault

Two people are required for this trick. Go to the top ledge inside then go to the corner nearest the exit (not the boxes one, but the corner directly to the side) Have someone else crouch down then have your character stand on top of their head. Jump and you will go outside. If this does not work, then have both players jump at the same time.

Aztec: Invisible person

Call one of your player's over with the call "Follow me". Call him over to one of the wooden crates and say the phrase "Need backup or taking fire... need assistance". He will guard you while you attempt this. Shoot the ground just in front of the wooden crate and jump twice. One enemy will appear from either your left or right. Kill him with your hand and say "follow me" and repeat the process, all up to the point where you jump twice. You will then be invisible. This only works under the expert difficulty setting.
