T balkan
Team Terrorists
Origin Balkans
Voiced By Erik Platonov

The Balkans are a Terrorist faction featured in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.


Judging by the style of clothing, this faction seems to consists of war veterans or even criminals with urban style outfit. Several of them wear winter hats and they are all seen in thick brown jackets, suggesting that they hail from a cold region (most likely the Balkans) or they might be Russian Chechen terrorists because they speak Russian and they are the terrorist team in Train, which is located in Russia. Though their name indicates that they're from Balkan. Their hand model features a thick brown jacket with a red sleeve poking out the end with black cloth gloves.


Counter-Strike: Global OffensiveEdit

They appear on four official maps:

Operation PhoenixEdit

Operation BravoEdit

Operation BreakoutEdit


We must defeat them.
―Round Start

Justice will be ours!
―When bomb is about to detonate

Of course. Of course.

No no no no no

This is our land!

Pay attention to what you are doing!
―Friendly fire

Do not shoot me!
―Friendly fire (firearms only)

  • Judging from their name, they would originate from the Balkan regions, a large area in Europe composed of countries like Bosnia, CroatiaMacedonia, Serbia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece or Bulgaria. However, in their speech they say "спаси́бо" which is Russian for "thank you" and is not used in the listed countries.
  • The Balkans were first seen in Dust2 in the first Global Offensive trailer.
    • However, they were replaced by the Elite Crew in later updates.
  • They were the third Terrorist model added to the Global Offensive Beta.
  • They appeared on more maps prior to the August 10th, 2012 update.
