Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a computer game developed by Valve and Hidden Path Entertainment; the latest main game in the Counter-Strike game series.
CS:GO, unlike its “younger” counterpart CS 1.6, was immediately developed as an independent discipline. But Valve have got it easier, because the popularity of 1.6 and Source versions have done its job. All Source’ers immediately switched to CS:GO. There were problems with 1.6, because. the players simply did not want to switch to the unfinished CS:GO, but the lack of tournaments played a decisive role, and the players were simply forced to switch to the new game`s version.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive makes several changes to the original Counter-Strike game formula. Compared to Counter-Strike: Source, weapon damage models have been balanced. There is improved bullet penetration through some walls, materials and objects. Radio commands for bots and players have been updated (recently radio commands have been removed and it is no longer possible for bots to give command), among other changes.
As a matter of fact, the gameplay has not changed compared to the classic version 1.6. Both one and the other game are 3D multiplayer first-person shooters. The rules and maps remain unchanged. The only things that have changed are the economy, weapons, map balance, and shooting mechanics.
Not many people remember today, but initially CS:GO was boycotted precisely because the shooting in it was so terrible and unbalanced that it was almost impossible to play it. Valve did a smart thing. They brought back the shooting from 1.6, and then a little bit in each patch it was balanced. That is to say, they introduced innovations gradually.
Initially, the economy of the game completely moved to CS:GO from 1.6. The changes concerned, perhaps, the cost of new devices and the reward for killing. But in recent years, Valve has slightly tweaked the reward for losing and winning a round. And if earlier it was possible to play a full-fledged device round only after two eco-rounds, now it’s quite possible to buy weapons during third round, even if you lost the first two.
In CS 1.6 there were only 2 main modes: hostage rescue and bomb planting. Subsequently, maps with VIP rescue were added, but such maps were rarely used in particular popularity. There were also user modes (special servers with various mods, but CS:GO also possesses them, so it makes no sense to even mention this). CS:GO originally had much more variety. They forgot about the mode with a VIP player, but, in addition to the standard ones, there were modes: competitive, arms race, fight to the death, forbidden zone.
Separately, it is necessary to highlight the competitive mode, because this is the coolest thing that Valve could do with the game. The fact is that in CS 1.6 everyone played on regular servers. Sometimes on DM servers. But it was impossible to test your own skill, and even more so it was impossible to boast your achievements. Sometimes statistics were kept on user servers, but it was still not the same. But in CS:GO, rank has become a really cool indicator of skill.
Last but not least, new types of weapons have appeared precisely in CS:GO. These can be counted as:
- The appearance of the Molotov cocktail.
- The appearance of a false grenade.
- The appearance of Tec-9.
- The appearance of CZ75 Auto.
- The appearance of MAG-7.
- P250 instead of SIG-Sauer P228.
- MP7 instead of MP5.
- Nova instead of Benelli M3 Super 90.
- The appearance of Sawed off.
- The appearance of PP-19 Bizon.
- The appearance of MP9 instead of Steyr TMP.
- Shocker Zeus.
- Revolver R8.
- SG 553 instead of SG 552.
- CT players can choose their starting pistol: P2000 or USP. In 1.6 there was only USP.
- CT players can choose to take m4a1 or m4a1-s. In 1.5 you could just wind the muffler.
- Scout vs SSG 08.
- Gun upgrades.
As you can see, the weapon changes were colossal, but in fact, globally, this had a positive effect on the gameplay, because if CS 1.6 was played only with the M4 or AK-47, then almost all types of weapons are playable in CS:GO.
