Counter Strike Global Offensive: see how to get weapons in the game
Instal Steam and register a new account. Find this game on a store and download it. Then just start the installation, which presents no difficulties. Just follow the onscreen instructions by choosing the directory where the game will be installed and making sure there is space available on your HD (approximately 7.6 Gb). Once installed, open the game and click “Play” to start playing.
If you already have some experience with the game, choose the option Find a Game and start the game. If you have never played CS in your life, the option “Offline with bots” may be interesting, since you will face the machine, whose difficulty you define yourself. After clicking this option, choose a phase and your team: Terrorists or Counter-terrorists, popularly known respectively as “Terror” and “CTs”.
The goals of the game depend on its type. For example, in one type of map terrorist group has to plant a bomb, while the counter terrorists have to defuse it. In other maps, the CTs need to rescue hostages held by terrorists. This rivalry is the main goal in the game and makes battles much more fun.
When you start the game as a terrorist, in case you own the bomb, the mission of planting it is up to you. If you want to get rid of responsibility, select it (by pressing 5) and press G to throw it away. To plant the bomb, your character must be in the location defined on the minimap, marked by an “X”. There, select the bomb and hold the E, action button. After properly planted, protect it waiting for it to detonate. But do not stand around at the time of the blast to not die.
If you’re a counter-terrorist, do not forget your defuse kit. Press B to activate the shopping menu and search through the “Gear” option. To defuse the bomb you must first find it and then focus it on it. Then select the defuse kit (by pressing 6) and hold the E action button until the entire procedure has been completed. If you do not have time to defuse the bomb – your team will lose.
In the case of hostage phases, the goal of the counter-terrorist is to rescue them and guide them to a safe place. As you approach the hostages, press E and they will begin to follow you. Your mission now is to take them safely to the location indicated on the minimap. In this map the terrorists must prevent the rescue of the hostages.
Remember, if an entire team is killed the opponent will be the winner.
In the buy menu, when pressing B, search for weapons or granades of your choice. It should be noted that in the first round a very limited number of weapons will be available for purchase, since the initial money is little. To get more, help your team win matches and kill as many enemies as possible.
Avoid walking alone or in open areas so as not to be easy target for your enemies. Remember that a bullet in the head is deadly and bombs that blind all players within a certain radius and create smoke curtains respectively affect your own team, so be careful when using them.
