How Do You Play CS:GO?
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a first person shooter that sees two teams of five players named the Terrorists and Counter-Terrorists fighting it out over a series of rounds that last for a minute and a half. An official game of Counter-Strike goes on for the best of fifteen rounds, and there are a couple of ways in which you can win a round on the server.
Terrorists can win rounds by either killing the entire enemy team, or planting their bomb at either of the two bombsites on each map and running the clock down until it explodes. Counter-Terrorists can either kill the entire enemy team before they have the bomb planted, run the round’s timer down to zero without the Terrorists planting the bomb, or defusing before it explodes after it’s been planted.
Counter-Strike games are intense, highly strategic and bring about both long periods of slow skulking and rapid outbursts that make every engagement and every match feel unique.
