Special Sub-Topic: "Counter-Strike" Map Mania
|Which map features seemingly useless boxes as a bombsite?|
de_inferno. Dust and Dust2 have green boxes which contain chemical weapons. Aztec has decorated boxes that are the prized Aztec ruins. As far as anyone knows, the bombsites on Inferno are merely wooden crates.
|With the coming of CS 1.6, de_aztec underwent a rather large change. What CS 1.5 map was the new de_aztec modeled after?|
de_aztec_c & aztec_c. CS 1.5's de_aztec_c contained most of the features that 1.6's de_aztec now has, including the lights in the swamp and different spawn appearances.
|What is the default weapon in helms_deep?|
M3 Shotgun. On the beautiful helms_deep layout, everyone spawns beside an M3 Shotgun for defensive or raiding purposes. Of course, each team also has its default pistol, which is often useful for long range attacks.
|Which is NOT a way into the airplane on cs_747?|
Through a metal grate on the top of the plane. The tunnel is often a chokepoint on the map, the loading area is a way to sneak into the plane, and the cockpit window is often the most enjoyable way in. There is no metal grate on the top of the plane itself; there IS a grate on top of the tunnel into the plane.
|True or False: On as_oilrig, the VIP is actually an important government executive trying to escape.|
F. According to the storyline, the VIP is part of the witness protection program, and he is referred to as "the most important criminal witness in history." Of course, that wouldn't be too good for the Terrorists if he escaped!
|How can the solitary word "FEAR" be found on cs_office?|
Shoot through a wall and find it in a hidden room. This is one of the most well-known "Easter Eggs." The wall is close to Terrorist spawn and it contains brief map credits, a picture, and the word FEAR. The monitors show screenshots of other games, and the posters are rather humorous, but the hostage jumping trick is bogus.
|In what map is there an exploding "object" in a toilet?|
cs_militia. Near Terrorist spawn, there is a room in Militia where a "floater" can be found in a toilet. Shoot it to make it blow up.
|True or False: In de_wallmart_final, players can hit the "Use" key to drive the scooters and shopping carts.|
F. While the scooters can be driven, the shopping carts do not function the same way. They can merely be pushed by walking into them.
|Who created de_prodigy?|
Hobbit. Hobbit has created several maps, including Prodigy and Office.
|Who created cs_militia and as_oilrig?|
MacMan. These two maps were made by MacMan. MacMan also co-created de_chateau with Ido Magal. Furthermore, he made textures for several maps.
|The .wad texture file for cs_italy is correctly titled ________.|
itsItaly.wad. Believe it or not, the name for Italy's .wad does not follow the standard "mapname.wad" format. itsItaly.wad is the correct name.
|The map he_dodgeball contains a hidden gun in the gym rafters. What is it?|
M249 Para. This can best be achieved with low gravity. Once obtained, the user can successfully rain down M249 bullets on the HE Grenading players below.
|True or False: fy_iceworld gives armor to each player at spawn.|
F. Some variations of the map do, but iceworld itself proves deadly in that players must traverse to the middle to buy armor.
|In what map do Terrorists hope to detonate a toxic nerve agent into the water supply in order to pollute nearby towns?|
de_torn & torn. Torn, made by Crinity and Madcross, has this description in its mission briefing. As a result, the fate of a region of towns lies within the fate of Torn!
|Chris Auty, one of the more famous map makers, goes by which of the following aliases?|
Barney. Barney / Narby is Chris Auty. MacMan made several contributions, as mentioned before. Fingers created de_piranesi, and NOTH1NG made cs_siege.
