* ScrappyMechanic:
** Bots who fill in for an absent player in competitive play in Global Offensive will almost ''never'' follow commands, [[TooDumbToLive even at the cost of their own lives]]. While this is fine for punishing players who are a bit kick-happy, it's absolutely frustrating when you're stuck with toaster A.I. because of a RageQuit or the absentee simply hasn't gotten into the game proper.
*** And, in the latter case, when the player finally does get into the game, the bot is automatically killed. Yes, it may be frustrating to work with a stubborn, idiotic bot, but at least the bot can [[WeNeedADistraction be a distraction]] while you line up your shots.

** Singaporeans like Counterstrike so much, a number of Internet Cafes continue to offer this game on 'rental' as part of their service.

** Bullet penetration and wallbang damage. 1.6 was very lenient about it, to the point where in some places it was possible to spray significant damage through what (according to texture) was a thick stone wall. ''GO'' went the other way, removing most wallbang spots and incresing damage falloff for penetrating bullets to the point where the AWP is the only weapon capable of doing significant damage through most bangable walls. Proponents of the former system argue it awards map knowledge and discourages camping. Others say it's unrealistic and discouraging to less experienced players.

** Should the CZ-75 Auto's decreased kill reward be raised to normal? Those in favor of increasing its kill reward cite the more glaring problems with the weapon as of the time of this writing; its longer draw time compared to other pistols and its small magazine and reserve ammo. Those against this suggestion say that the CZ-75 pays for itself by allowing its user to steal a dead enemy's rifle, and say the kill reward is fine as it is.



** As of release day R8 Revolver is definitely broken beyond belief. It has damage comparable to an AWP and absolutely ZERO penalties for shooting on the move, all for $850. It's supposed to be balanced by a delay between pulling the trigger and shooting, but this can be bypassed completely by firing with a right click (at a cost of some accuracy, negligible even at the medium range). Result is, no one fires with a left click and every player with an AK or M4 essentially has an AWP as a secondary weapon. And to top it all off, [[NotTheIntendedUse you can use the secondary fire ''while defusing the bomb''.]]

* InternetBackdraft: Winter 2015 update was met with huge backlash for numerous reasons:
** The R8 revolver is widely hated by just about all of the competitive scene, for being a pistol with AWP-like damage and no recoil or movement aim penalties.
** Longer recoil reset on both [=M4s=] and the AK made spraydowns much more reliant on [[RandomNumberGod RNG]], which arguably made the rifle play much less skillful.
** Increase in movement recoil for pistols was widely awaited by community, but even this was screwed up, as Valve just doubled the recoil values for all pistols, forgetting that shooting on the move is a vital feature of the Glock (since its range and damage are inferior to CT starting pistols). This made pistol rounds way more CT sided.

** And then an update in the middle of June that same year added a sound cue for firing at low ammo. Most players immediately started to ''hate'' this change for numerous reasons; a) very few, if any, guns in real life make ''any'' sound if their magazine is close to empty, b) it was a global noise, and therefore took the guesswork out of figuring how close an enemy is to an empty weapon, and c) the sound was lifted straight from the main menu.

*** In recent years, de_dust has died a slow and painful death due to people having finally begun to realize that the map is heavily flawed; forcing choke-points to always occur at just two locations, and both being heavily favored for the counter-terrorists to claim victory. It's for this reason that de_dust2 exists, which is a much more balanced map for both sides.

** Crouch delays [[labelnote: Explanation]]The character model takes a second before counting as "crouched", despite the first-person view showing the crouched view almost instantly[[/labelnote]] in ''Global Offensive''. A fair mechanic to reduce crouch spam, or a true ScrappyMechanic that causes deaths that, from the perspective of one getting killed, seems like they shouldn't have happened?

* LoveItOrHateIt: ''Counter Strike Nexon: Zombies''. It's liked for being a good free-to-play version of ''Counter Strike'', along with a somewhat amount of characters with {{Fanservice}}, an ongoing ''Zombie Scenario'' storyline, and '''''HUGE''''' amounts of GunPorn. It also helps that it's on steam, DLC included (with the starter pack being free, of course!). Others dislike it due to being a "[[BribingYourWayToVictory Pay To Win]]" game, along with the fact that the graphics have not aged well, and that they would [[FanonDiscontinuity rather forget about it]]. It doesn't help that it's been [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny done to death]]. Hell, it also earned a 61% from UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}.

** Riot Shields for counter-terrorists have yet to make a reappearance since 1.6, as the only way to kill shield users were to grenade them, time the shot correctly when they move the shield to pull out their pistol, or get lucky and somehow pop the shielder through the vision hole.

** AK-47/Desert Eagle is ''THE'' weapon combination that is considered to be the premier load-out. Most counter-terrorists players even prefer to drop their M4 for the AK.
