Surgical precision and tactical prowess are crucial to securing a hidden weapons cache beneath Chernobyl.
―Map slogan

Cache (de_cache) is a custom Bomb Defusal map featured in Operation Bravo and in Operation Phoenix, available in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

With the introduction of Operation Breakout, Cache became an official map.


This map is a remake of an original Counter-Strike: Source custom map, originally favoring the Terrorists.


  • The Cache Collection was introduced before the ESL One 2014 tournament, and was originally only available in a souvenir packages.
  • The Chernobyl Power Plant is visible from the Terrorist insertion point, along with nearby buildings and even fencing material consistent with the real-life counterpart.
  • Cache is currently the only non-Valve made map in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to become official.
    • Although Mirage was originally an unofficial map (as de_cpl_strike), it was remade by Valve, and released for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive as an official map.
  • The map contains many several signs with the word "ЧАЕС" printed on them, the letters stand for Чорнобильська Атомна Електростанція, Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukrainian.
    • Despite the map being set in Chernobyl, the truck near the Terrorist spawn has a California plate on it
    • Similarly, the counter-terrorists are GIGN that are supposed to be the law enforcements of France.
  • Situated on "Heaven" (B site) there are a stack of boxes with one ripped open, which contains a rack of AK-47's. However they cannot be picked up. Similar to the weapon racks on B site itself, which contains an AWP, SSG 08, among other weapons.
  • A graffiti at B site showing a winged man with an AWP was added after an incident in ESL One Cologne 2016 where professional gamer s1mple dropped from B Heaven with an AWP and killed two enemy players without using his scope.[1]
