The most popular online FPS in the world, with some claiming it generates more Internet traffic than the whole of Italy.

It's a terrorists versus counter-terrorists modification for ''VideoGame/HalfLife.''

It pretty much has no plot beyond "counter-terrorists must kill the terrorists and vice-versa" though there are game modes fitting the theme beyond death match such as "bomb defusal" (the only mode played in competitive matches), "rescue the hostages" (played on public servers essentially) and "escort the VIP" (never played). Various custom game modes have been introduced since: modes that limit you to specific weapons selections, modes with special, often gimmicky goals, and even maps where the object isn't to kill the opposing side but rather to navigate the map in a maze-like fashion.

Originally a free GameMod, Creator/{{Valve|Software}} (the developers of the original ''Half-Life'' and its sequel, ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'') has since hired on the original developers to create ''Counter-Strike: Source,'' using ''Half-Life 2's'' graphics and physics engine.

It gets a great deal of the world's top gamers. It also gets a great deal of the idiots, and also MoralGuardians who [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch rail against it]] for "[[MurderSimulators teaching kids to kill]]." Most memorable being the instance of a high school student expelled for basing a Counter-Strike map off of his school. In addition, a judge in Brazil has banned Counter-Strike sales throughout the country, because of a map designed as Rio De Janeiro. (Not that it has helped, as the game is widely pirated in Brazil).

A new version of Counter-Strike, subtitled "Global Offensive" came out in August 2012. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edYCtaNueQY You can watch its Source Filmmaker Trailer here]].
----
!!Includes examples of:
* AKA47 - Though there's an unofficial patch that (mostly) corrects this. Earlier versions of ''Counter Strike'' did use the real names for guns.
** Some details: There was a time (pre-{{Steam}}) where which weapon names you got depended on whether you had the mod version, which required HalfLife to play (''real names'') or had bought the stand-alone retail version of Counter-Strike (''AKA47 names''). The mod version also is the origin of the aforementioned "unofficial patch" (''titles.txt'').
** Depends on regions in ''Counter-Strike Online''. Korean, Japanese and Taiwan versions straight up calls them by their original name, but Malaysian/Singapore and Indonesian versions calls it by Condition Zero titles to ease up the localization work.
** Mostly averted in Global Offensive. Most guns are called by their actual names (although without the weapon manufacturers,) with the exceptions of the sawed off Remington 870 and the Taser. The Taser uses this trope (as Taser is a brand-name,) being named the "Zeus x27," while the sawed off Remington 870 is simply called the "Sawed-Off Shotgun."
* AnnouncerChatter - an ''extremely'' common server-side mod will make the game announce a "KILLING SPREE!!!", a "M-m-m-m-monster kill!!!", a "Headshot!", or a "HUMILIATION!!!" (knife kill), taken from Quake and VideoGame/UnrealTournament.
** Took until Counter Strike: Source to disable this MostAnnoyingSound.
** Some servers take this to a fascinating extreme, uploading dozens of sound clips to your computer when you first enter them.
** Counter-Strike Online have their own Announcer Chatter, from the standard multiple kill announcements to UT-like voice clips. Special mention goes to the nearly-haunting 10-second countdown in zombie mode.
* ArmorIsUseless - You can buy a helmet, vest, or both. They barely lessen the damage taken - they're the difference between five bullets killing you and four bullets killing you. Realistically, though, the armor is more effective against most of sub-machine guns and pistols (except the Deagle, Five-Seven, and Tek-9) than against heavier arms and also protects well against grenades.
* ArtisticLicenseEconomics: The short-lived attempt by Valve to dynamically price the guns - basically, trying to balance the game by having popular weapons get more and more expensive while making bad guns cheaper than dirt. At one point, a gun somehow cost '''negative''' money.
* BankRobbery: The setting of the 'Bank' and 'Downtown' maps in Global Offensive. Also, 'Miami' from the Xbox version of Counter-Strike.
* BoomHeadshot - [[PurePwnage FPS Doug]] said this while playing Counter-Strike, making it ''the'' TropeNamer.
* BoringButPractical - Flashbangs.
* CherryTapping - Knife kills, though it has the advantage of being a one-hit kill when stabbing someone in the back.
* [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife Counter-Strike Will Ruin Your Life]]: Amount of time spent playing (with some exceptions) correlates with percentage of vocabulary replaced with "AWP SUX/ROX", "[=N00B=]", "FAG", etc.
* DoNotRunWithAGun - Applies to players, as running while shooting will send your bullets anywhere that isn't the reticule.
** Slightly averted, as you can fire accurately whenever you aren't pushing a movement key. This allows players moving back and forth to fire in between direction changes.
* ElaborateUndergroundBase - From all intents and purposes, the raid on a well-armed gang in ''Modesto'' of all places goes awry - you, a SWAT member, falls into a huge ''warehouse under a crime-ridden slum'' filled with crack for shipping and weapons.
* EscortMission - The hostage maps, though most opt to kill the opposing team instead of saving the hostages there.
** Averted in Global Offensive, as the CTs carry the hostages over their shoulder from one set point on the map to the other. Also, only one hostage needs to be saved.
** The [=CTs=] can claim victory on a hostage map by rescuing two hostages and then executing the other two. This is, of course, highly discouraged.
** The V I P mission mode that was a feature of 1.6 but was never very popular.
* EvilVersusEvil - The two terrorist factions fighting over the radioactive material in Deleted Scenes.
* GameMod - In addition to the fact that this game is the most successful mod ever, custom content is very popular; note that [=GameBanana=] has [[http://www.gamebanana.com/skins more Counter-Strike: Source skins]] than it has skins of ''any other game combined''.
* GunsAkimbo - Dual Beretta Elites. More useful than you think they are.
** In fact, they're the second most used, right below the Desert Eagle.
* HeroicSacrifice - In ''Deleted Scenes'', the Spetznaz commanding officer stays behind to make sure none of the warring terrorists disable the bomb you planted to destroy the nuclear core.
* InformedEquipment: Most Terrorists player models visibly wear no armor and even fewer have helmets, while most Counter-Terrorists wear both. But playing as either you have actual protection from armor and helmets if and only if you buy it at the beginning of a round.
* LeeroyJenkins - Just go on the online games. ''No one'' works together, unless they're in clans.
** Somewhat averted for Console ''Global Offensive'', where players are made to work together via forcing them into game chat at all times.
* LeetLingo - Actually something of a trope popularizer for this.
** Gotten to the point that it makes one's brain hurt.
* LightningGun - ''Global Offensive'''s Zeus x27 ([[AKA47 A.K.A. Taser]]) is a short range OneHitKill [[ThrowAwayGuns Throw Away Weapon]], regardless of where you hit your target.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe - The Counter Terrorist's buyable equipment in Condition Zero includes a solid metal riot shield that takes up your primary slot and secondary weapon in return for blocking all forms of harm in the front while it's equipped. The first multiplayer game to use this, and it was ''absolutely hated'' by pros.
* OneBulletLeft - Invoked. Killing an enemy with the last bullet in your mag nets you a Steam achievement.
* OneHitKill - The AWP Sniper Rifle is a one shot kill anywhere but the leg. Banned from pubs and the only weapon that can compete with the AK-47 (which can spray and one shot you in the head).
* OutOfTheInferno: In ''Global Offensive'' having friendly fire off lets your teammates happily walk through the flames created by your incendiary grenade/Molotov cocktail. Otherwise, however, going out of them will be anything but badass as it slows you down while damaging you, forcing you to hobble for your life.
* {{Qurac}} - de_dust and de_dust2, and the level ''Recoil'' for ''Deleted Scenes''.
* RightHandedLeftHandedGuns - Completely enforced until Global Offensive, where for the very first time in the series, there are properly modelled weapons for right-handed users.
** Some weapons in Counter-Strike Online were actually mirrored correctly.
* RightWingMilitiaFanatic - Presumably the Militia skin for the Terrorist, and the map cs_militia.
* SawedOffShotgun - Comes in three flavors, Double Barrel and the Quadbarrel for ''Counter-Strike Online'', and a sawn-off Remington 870 called as the Sawed-Off in ''Global Offensive''.
* {{Shoutout}} - The manga store in the Japanese Subway level of ''Deleted Scenes'' references ''Anime/ReadOrDie'' amongst other manga, and the after-credits to ''DrStrangelove''.
** The "1337 Krew" terrorist skin is a reskin of Gordon Freeman from ''Half-Life'' (of which the game is a mod of).
** The gang leader in "The Turn of the Screw" wears [[{{Scarface}} a white suit, trades in drugs, speaks with a heavy Cuban accent, and is coked up in the final battle, making him hard to kill. He screams at you all the way, and you breach the room he's hiding in with explosives.]]
** "Recoil", being set in Northern Africa and fighting off Jihadi after being shot down in an RPG, being a member of Delta Force and picking up a standard sniper... we'll give you two seconds. TIME'S UP! BlackHawkDown.
* {{Shown Their Work}} - [[http://i.imgur.com/SnQmy.jpg Way too much?]]
* StandardFPSGuns
* SticksToTheBack - At least one counter-terrorist player model in the upcoming Counter-Strike Global Offensive invert this: rifles sticks to the front when unequipped. For other games the unequipped weapon just don't appear at all.
** Played straight in ''Source'', however.
* SuperSenses - Hearing, specifically. A good player can find a nice little place to hide in, hear some footsteps, and instantly blurt out to his team "3 coming long A."
** In competitive play this can lead to players trying to "out-sound" each other, mixing walking with running to fool enemies of their position.
* TerroristsWithoutACause - The terrorists don't really have a mission in the normal game. Their backgrounds posit them as anti-government, anti-Western fanatics.
** Averted in ''Condition Zero: Deleted Scenes''. Some of the terrorists who are present in multiplayer actually have goals and causes (not all of them are present, though).
* ThrowAwayGuns - A sometimes effective strategy, both offensively (for [[LeeroyJenkins Leeroy Jenkinses]]) and defensively (No time to reload because the enemy is rushing you? Throw away your gun and grab a dead guy's gun!).
* TranslationConvention[=/=]JustaStupidAccent - In ''Deleted Scenes'', all characters speak English [except for the opposing side], however accented.
* WesternTerrorists - Midwest Militia, Arctic Avengers and Phoenix Connexion are from America, Sweden(!) and former Soviet Union states in Eastern Europe respectively.
** Averted (again) in ''Deleted Scenes'', which features Jihadi, Filipino rebels, Japanese and Russian terrorists, bank robbers, and so on.
* ZombieApocalypse - Comes in two flavors - Infection (which came before the ''{{Halo}}'' game mode), wherein one guy gets infected and must run around and kill the others or where the humans must escape, and NOTD/Zombie Riot, where survivors fight off an army of CPU-controlled zombies. The former usually has nigh-invulnerable zombies and forces players to hole up in buildings and last as long as possible (or escape an area), and the latter is the standard "needs a headshot" kill.
** Counter-Strike Online recycles the mods above and made it to their official playlist as Zombie Mode (Infection) and Zombie Scenario Mode (NOTD/Zombie Riot).
