Gameplay

Counter-Strike Online features some old game modes from the previous games in the series as well as new ones, modified version of custom modes.

The game also features a variety of additions over the international games, such as an introduction of female characters, numerous new weapons and skins for previous weapons. Most of the weapons are "locked" by default, so cash points or game points are essential to purchase them. Cash points are purchased through real-world money for special weapons, skins, power-ups, etc. You can also buy standard weapons for periods of time using game points earned from playing the game.
