Scenario Bomb defusal

Bridge (de_bridge_cz) is a cut bomb defusal that was supposed to be released with Counter-Strike (Xbox) and Counter-Strike: Condition Zero. It was also used as the base for Motorcade Assault in Deleted Scenes.

OverviewEdit

The map takes place in a city inspired by Venice, Italy.

DevelopmentEdit

The map was originally designed by Matt Coombe[1] of Gearbox Software as an assassination map simply called "as_bridge". During development, it seems the map did not work out as planned, was scaled down, and reworked into a hostage rescue style map.

In the end, the hostage rescue scenario was no longer favored and the remaining development was finally focused into making Bridge as a bomb defusal type map.

TriviaEdit

  • A version of the map has been leaked and is available for download. Notably it has been compiled for the Xbox version of the game and due to slight differences in the lightning system, it will appear darker than supposed to be when played on the PC version.
    • The detail texture file still calls the map cs_bridge and a {hrpoint decal is still present in the map.
    • The map seems to have been compiled without models and also has a lot of misplaced/misaligned textures present. This causes weird issues like invisible obstacles in the map and a waterfall moving upward rather than downward.
    • Five of the Terrorist spawn points are placed within the Counter-Terrorist spawn, indicating that the spawn zones were intended to be switched at some point during development.
      • The Terrorist spawn zone still has the Hostage rescue zone decal.
      • Terrorists can go to to the Counter-Terrorists' Buy zone and purchase weapons or equipment. However, Counter-Terrorists cannot do the same on on the Terrorists' buy zone.
    • There is only one bombsite on this map.
  • The map overview layout has a resemblance to that of Angel City in Counter-Strike Online, though the layout has been mirrored.
  • CT bots tend to jump off the bridge located next to their spawn zone without landing in the water, causing moderate damage to themselves. Sometimes, sniper bots also camp 'in' the water; often causing them to drown.
  • Because the map was never finished, there is only one bombsite, the same area where many GIGN were killed in Motorcade Assault. This makes Bridge one of the two beta maps that featured only one bombsite, the other being Jeepathon2k. Furthermore, the bombsite marking reuses the Biohazard icon from Half-Life instead of the usual bombsite marking. The radius of the bombsite is very small, often forcing a Terrorist to plant the C4 directly on the bombsite marking.
