Game modes[]

  • Bomb Defuse: In this mode, the player is required to defuse the bomb after the time says "1:20" remaining. Even if the enemy team is taken down, the player will need to defuse the bomb.
  • Hostage: In this mode, the hostage is only shown in the planning table if someone is moving them and not otherwise. As a Terrorist Unit, the player will need to keep an eye on them as not doing so can lead to them running away and extracting themselves, giving the Counter-Terrorists a free win. The player cannot see the hostage's location in the planning table.
  • CO-OP: This game mode allows the player to play bigger operations that they can either tackle solo or with a team of up to 5. With each operation, they are tasked to complete objectives such as bringing order to chaos. There are more objectives such as rescuing multiple hostages, arresting or neutralizing specific suspects and more which are being added down the line. Suspects may or may not have patrolling routes that are random every session and can interact with the environment to give it a challenge. They can hide under beds, tables and inside closets. They are also capable of taking a hostage and use them as a shield, making it harder for the player to engage. Suspects can also surrender based on a few criteria; If a suspect is outnumbered from behind they will always surrender and if you are one on one with a suspect, based on the suspect's fear level, they may or may not surrender.
