DevelopmentEdit

Counter-Strike 1.6Edit

Militia consisted of textures that were taken from the original Half-Life game. There were entryways to an underground sewer system that players can use as it connected between the CT Spawn Zone and the back yard of the house. More importantly, one area of the sewers (nearby the backyard) had operating security cameras that overlooked the important sections of the map. Crates were found in many places of the map and there was a shooting range in the yard, including a Jacuzzi in the side yard. Furthermore, the interior of the house was fairly plain as there were not that many props.

Counter-Strike: Condition ZeroEdit

Regarding the map, the notable differences between Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter-Strike: Condition Zero includes:

  1. The sewer is darker, has more accessible entrances, and more simplified as it no longer contains the room with the security cameras and crates.
  2. The Jacuzzi has been removed and replaced with a hole.
  3. For aesthetic purposes, the APC was replaced by a helicopter above the CT Spawn Zone (and the Hostage rescue zone).
  4. A ramp has been placed nearby one of the entrances to the sewers near the CT spawn area. This basis of the CTs being able to ascend to higher ground near or at the sewers has remained in future versions thus so far.
  5. The floor, walls, and ceilings of the house has a wooden texture and the shooting range at the backyard has been removed.

Counter-Strike: SourceEdit

Militia in Counter-Strike: Source is completely different from the original Counter Strike versions.

Rather than taking place in a canyon like the past maps, this version takes place in a forest (possibly, in the northwest of the United States) and the house is made of red wood rather than concrete. The front section of the house now has an additional roof (between the windows and the front door) that can allow the CTs to have more infiltration and there is a shack/tool shed at the end of the sewers. Unlike the previous versions, the deck/side yard now has a staircase instead of a hole/jacuzzi. The alternative route has a bridge, but this area is a lot more exposed, and very vulnerable to enemy fire.

There is now a creek close to the CT Spawn Zone and the map was altered to allow the CT team to stand better ground against the Terrorist force. Grain silos have been added to help the CTs gain more protection from Terrorist snipers. The front yard is made more complex that will be more challenging for both teams.

The shooting range makes a reappearance but it is not accessible. Moreover, the bar in the house appears.

There is also an easter egg in the skybox for this map. If one was to fly towards the end of the creek at the backyard (in spectator mode) or zoom in with a scope, that player can see an HD render of the Turtle Rock Studios on a barn.

Counter-Strike: Global OffensiveEdit

Militia was officially added after an update of CS:GO at March 21, 2013.

The map layout is similar to CS: Source but remade completely in some areas for additional cover. It is more balanced for the Counter-Terrorist team, unlike in previous titles when they were easily pinned down by Terrorist snipers.

A new pathway for players to take is the "tractor storage building" in which the CTs can jump on some crates and break through the door, allowing them to bypass through Terrorist snipers. There is also another "sniper nest" which is "exclusive" for the CTs that overlooks the front entrance.The CT spawn zone has also been widened and the entryway to the sewers was simplified and is more open-spaced (although it is still located partially underneath most of the ground).

Based on the appearance of some chickens, farm equipment such as tractors, barns, corn fields, and grain silos, the conflict is taking place in a farm somewhere in the countryside of America (possibly, in the Midwest).

The Counter-Terrorists for this map are the FBI and the Terrorists are the Phoenix Connexion.

TriviaEdit

  • Militia is available in all versions of the Counter-Strike series.
  • In Counter-Strike 1.6, hostages may have extreme difficulty in navigating through the map. This happens particularly when a CT leaves the house through the attic window (located above the garage) and/or travels through the sewers. When hostages were escorted via the sewers, the hostages will become stuck because they are unable to climb ladders. As a result, the hostages are unable to follow the CT, leading to time being wasted. This problem has been fixed in Counter Strike: Condition Zero as the hostages have a better A.I. guidance system and can interact with their environment (such as being able to climb ladders and crouch to access certain areas when necessary). In Source, the ladder at the entry point of the sewers has been eliminated to prevent the hostages from becoming stuck.
    • If this happens, the only way to win is to kill all Terrorists.
  • In CS 1.6, the lights in the underground pipe can be disabled by using a switch near the CT spawn zone.
    • There are several security cameras at the one of the ends of the underground sewers.
    • The toilet in the house's bathroom features feces; shooting it repeatedly will cause it to blow up although will not harm the player. This might be a joke made by the map's creator, Andrew Aumann.
  • In CS:S, it is suggested that Militia takes place in autumn.
  • Militia is one of the most heavily changed maps in the Counter-Strike franchise.
  • The shooting target in 1.6 is reused from the Counter-Strike training system in CS 1.0. (A training map that was cut after 1.6.)
  • This is the first official map in the Counter-Strike series that features a logo from a product/brand from real life, a logo of Beck's Brewery can be found in the kitchen of the house.
