** Averted: Dual Berettas, Desert Eagle, P228/P250, UMP-45, MP5/MP7, Steyr Scout/SSG-08, AWP, M249, Negev (all available to both teams).
** Inverted: USP/P2000, TMP/MP9, AUG (Counter-Terrorist only); Glock (Terrorist only).
** Where this gets rather odd is that the weapon selection (which favors NATO weapons for Counter-Terrorists) applies regardless of what real-world organizations is used for the counter-terrorist team on each map. The GSG-9, Israel Defense Force, and the Spetsnaz can all get American M4s and French FAMASes, but can't get their own G3SG/1s, Galils or [=AKs=] except by stealing them from dead terrorists.

** Also known on terrorist side as 'Going for picks'. Players split all over the map and drop the bomb in an easily accesible place behind. Then they wait until one of [=CTs=] makes a mistake and gets killed so they can attack the weakened site. Or wait until rest of the CT team rotates there and plant on the other site.

* ShoutOut: The manga store in the Japanese Subway level of ''Deleted Scenes'' references ''Anime/ReadOrDie'' amongst other manga, and the after-credits to ''Film/DrStrangelove''.

** Some maps in ''Global Offensive'' recycle assets and layouts from past Valve games, especially ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'', which leads to the theory that ''Global Offensive'' is actually a prequel to ''Left 4 Dead''.



** There's a theory that ''Global Offensive'' is a prequel to the zombie apocalypse in ''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/Left4Dead Left 4 Dead]]''. This is supported by the similarities of certain maps in both games.

** Certain pistols and [=SMGs=] avert it,mostly in ''Global Offensive''. Most of the hate towards [=Tec-9=] and [=P90=] comes from their high rate of fire combined with low recoil while moving.

** Buying the UMP submachine gun in ''Counter-Strike'' 1.6 or ''Source''. In ''Global Offensive'', the weapon deals significantly more damage.

* DoNotRunWithAGun: Running while shooting will send your bullets anywhere that isn't the reticule. How much it throws off your aim is proportional to movement speed: for most of the series velocity was lost immediately after you let go of the arrow keys, letting you shoot and run all but simultaneously. In ''Global Offensive'' reaching a stop takes a fraction of a second, but can be done faster by tapping the direction arrow opposite to the direction you were moving in. However, because of the dangers of sitting perfectly still to aim properly, many players adopt a strategy of shooting a burst of bullets, tapping left/right, shooting again when stopped, moving a bit again, etc. to balance accuracy and being not-so-easy to hit.

* GoodGunsBadGuns: Some weapons are locked to certain teams, but there are some inversions and aversions here.
** Straight: M4s and FAMAS (Counter-Terrorist only); AK, Galil, MAC-10, Tec-9, Sawed-Off Shotgun, SG 552/556 (Terrorist only).
** Averted: Dual Berettas, Desert Eagle, P228/P250, UMP-45, MP5/MP7, Steyr Scout/SSG-08, AWP, M249, Negev (all available to both teams).

* GunPorn: An update for ''Global Offensive'' has added weapon skins and crates, but above all, pressing a button while ingame will deploy a special animation of the player inspecting the weapon. Even better, considering there's now a loadout screen where one can view each weapon and skins, complete with a fully three-dimensional render and pan of said weapons. Third-party mods can also give the player a nice set of fancy new weapons, replacing your boring old M4 with [[RareGuns something like an XM8 or tricked-out variant.]]

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: The inevitable result of attempting to spray more than a few shots at someone's head- only one (if any) shot ends up where it's supposed to. Firing fully automatic on recoil-heavy weapons like the AK-47 is a great way to empty the magazine and accomplish basically nothing, similar to real life.
