Strategy Guide Description
Origin: Founded in the United States by ex-members of the military and police force.

The Midwest Militia has also carried out numerous cross-border Terrorist attacks into Canada using such unusual means as hot-air balloons and motorized hang gliders.
Strength: A relatively small group comprising only 300 members, the Midwest Militia is nonetheless highly effective. The members' military and police backgrounds make them extremely efficient. Privately funded by unknown sources, the Midwest Militia uses the most advanced weapons and technology.
Counter-Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scenes
The Midwest Militia appears as opposing force in missions:
- A "Militia" is a military force composed of ordinary citizens.
- In Deleted Scenes, despite having origins from America, members of the Midwest Militia speak only a few times in English as they are encountered in foreign countries outside of the United States.
- The 1993 standoff in Waco mentioned in the Midwest Militia background may be a possible reference to the "Waco Siege" that occurred in 1993 between the FBI and a religious group known as the Branch Davidians.
- The game file name for this player model is "militia".
- The Militia is included in Counter-Strike Online. Its model was reused from Condition Zero, and reuses animations from Counter-Strike 1.6. This model is available for players free of charge.
