The Federal Bureau of Investigation, abbreviated FBI, is a new counter-terrorist faction featured in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The unit is based off the real life HRT: Hostage Rescue Team.
The FBI: Hostage Rescue Team was founded in 1982 and is trained to rescue allies held by hostile force. Their motto is 'Servare Vitas' (To Save Lives).
The unit wears a green uniform with kevlar vests and tactical helmets. Just like their real-life appearence, they look well prepared for assault and infiltration. The FBI makes an appearence on three hostage rescue maps: Office, Assault and Militia. They fight the Anarchists on Office, and Phoenix Connexion on Assault and Militia.
The FBI operators in the game are voiced by Chris Fries.
The FBI HRT was added to the Beta in the August 10th 2012 update. Their hand model features light green sleeves with black gloves. As mentioned above, they make an appearence on three maps: Office, Assault and Militia
