The Federal Bureau of Investigation, abbreviated as FBI, is a Counter-Terrorist faction featured in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The unit is based off the real life Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) or FBI SWAT.
In addition to responding to terrorist attacks, the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) responds to bank robbery, espionage and cyber-warfare.
The FBI's 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 FBI HRT was added to the Beta in the August 10th 2012 update. Their hand model features light green sleeves with black gloves. The unit wears a green uniform with Kevlar vests and tactical helmets. Just like their real-life appearance, they look well prepared for assault and infiltration.
The FBI operators in the game are voiced by Chris Fries.
- In a CS:GO trailer, an FBI operative can seen on the map Vertigo, despite the fact that the FBI do not offically appear in this map.
- As of now, the FBI have unused quotes regarding the C4. Due to this, they may appear in a future bomb defusal map.
