Cobblestone (de_cbble), formerly known as Cbble, is a bomb defusal map featured in the Counter-Strike series. It was added to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in the Winter Offensive update alongside the map Overpass.

Official Description

Counter-Terrorists: Prevent terrorists from bombing Lord William's country farmhouse. He has been the target of assassination in light of recent government proposals.

Terrorists: The Terrorist carrying the C4 must place the bomb at one of the two bomb sites around the map, thereby killing Lord William and severely damaging his home.

Development History

Counter-Strike 1.6

This map was favored by snipers as sniper nests overlooked the courtyard. To avoid this, players can take the hallways or use smoke grenades for cover.

Counter-Strike: Condition Zero

Not much has changed in Cbble, other than the lightning.

Counter-Strike: Source

To accommodate with the new Source Engine, the map had graphical and textural tweaks though the integrity of Cbble remained unchanged.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Cobblestone was re-introduced as part of the December 18, 2013 update. Valve performed a major overhaul to the map, graphically and strategically. Nearly all of the crates were removed and replaced with more realistic props. The hallways had become filled with museum artifacts instead of crates, similar to Piranesi. Additionally, the map is littered with some construction equipment and Medieval props, completing the transition from just an old medieval castle in the previous games to a historical museum and tourist attraction somewhere in France.

On the August 1, 2014 update, the terrorist faction was changed from Professional to Phoenix Connection. The current official factions are the Phoenix Connexion and the GIGN.

Tour of Duty

  • Cobblestone was originally named "de_cbble" instead of "de_cobble" in honor of the old, eight character restriction.[1]
  • According to the official description of de_chateau, the Terrorists were able to successfully bomb Lord William's country farmhouse (Cobble). However, it appears Lord William survived, and was rebuilding his summer investment (Chateau).
    • The description means this is the only time when the Terrorists have ever canonically bombed a map.
    • Despite the description, Lord William does not appear on the map, nor does he appear in any other part of the Counter-Strike series. However, Lord William is the focus of two missions in both of the Operation Bloodhound campaigns.
  • Due to the verticality of this map, it is fairly easy to take fall damage. Bots in early versions of the game will also occasionally fall to their deaths.
  • In Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, when bots plant the bomb at bombsite A, the bots usually plant it near a crate, potentially clipping inside the crate, rendering it un-defusable.
  • In Global Offensive's Guardian mode, the map's only hostage is named "Lord William."
  • In Global Offensive, a sign near the door handle on the toilets changes color when a person is occupying the toilet.
  • In Global Offensive, the pre-rendered shadows on the map were mismatched in directions to the live-rendered shadows on the map.
