Prodigy (de_prodigy) is an official bomb defusal map in all Counter-Strike series, except Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Due to confusing interior rooms, hallways, and enclosed areas, it is one of the less popular bomb defusal maps.


It is based in and around an office, most likely in a military base in the mountains. The counter-terrorists spawn at bomb site B while a nearby ladder can quickly lead them to a ventilation shaft and to several important areas, such as bombsite A. The areas known as the Crates and the Security Doors are the areas with the most activities.

Official DescriptionEdit

Counter-Terrorists: Prevent Terrorists from bombing the computer lab or the fuel pipeline control room. Team members must defuse any bombs that threaten targeted areas.

Terrorists: The Terrorist carrying the C4 must destroy one of the targets.

Other Notes: There are 2 targets in this mission.


Counter-Strike 1.0Edit

The map was built by Alex Manilov and uses original Half-Life textures. It is one of the first bomb defusal maps. The time was set in dawn.

Counter-Strike 1.6Edit

The map was slightly improved with clear models and improved player's speed but still used Half-Life textures. The time was set in the evening.

Counter-Strike: Condition ZeroEdit

As Alex Manilov was part of the Counter-Strike: Condition Zero development at Gearbox Software[1], it is likely that the enhanced version was started by him and was likely edited further by Ritual Entertainment. The map arrangement is the same but the textures have greatly changed and the bot behavior has slightly modified. The textures are taken from mission Pipe Dream in Condition Zero: Deleted Scenes.

Furthermore, de_prodigy_cz has been modified to be more bot friendly as the door between the Guard House and the Computer Room is now automated thus removing the switch needed to open the door.

There is a glitch in Counter-Strike that bots will keep firing their weapons or swinging their knives at the window of Bombsite B. However, in Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, the glitch is fixed.

Counter-Strike: SourceEdit

The Counter-Strike: Source version has many improvements, such as the lateral outdoor pass, where the player can see other buildings (in the original Counter-Strike version, there is only the default skybox), and the time is set during a sunny day, unlike in previous versions which takes place in the evening or dawn.

Originally, bombsite B had several generators which provided more camping spots for players. This was removed in later versions.

The cliff area has been replaced by a fence, thus preventing players from committing suicide.
