Overview and developmentEdit
- The CS Grenade was originally to be included in both Gearbox's version of Counter-Strike: Condition Zero and in the planned patch for Counter-Strike. As Gearbox Software failed to meet to deadline for their game, the project was scrapped along with the grenade. Only two HUD and a kill icon remain in the game files.
- The idea was later reconsidered when Ritual Entertainment acquired Gearbox's assets for their version of the game but was ultimately cut. HUD icons remain in the game files along with a viewmodel and worldmodel.
- The CS grenade would release a cloud of gas that would damage anyone that passes through it. The effects could also stay for a couple seconds out of the gas.
- The only way a player would gain immunity to the gas produced by the CS grenade was to buy the cut Gas mask.
Comparison to the Molotov cocktailEdit
Although both grenades have similar effects, the Molotov cocktail also has a counter-equipment, being the Smoke Grenade which extinguishes the fire. The damage done is almost the same, in comparison to the CS Grenade. However, the CS grenade would also have a passive counter item, the Gas mask. This would negate the effects of the CS grenade permanently, instead of being a one use counter item.
- It was most likely going to be Counter-Terrorist exclusive, as military forces commonly use them in real life.
- The CS grenade functions like a smoke grenade, instead releasing a harmful gas known as 2-chlorobenzalmalononitrile.
- The gas is commonly used as a riot control agent in real life.
- The gas is non-lethal weapon in real life, although lengthy exposure can lead to incapacitation.
- If this was true, then the Molotov Cocktail was planned to be Terrorist exclusive.
