The radio is an important part of the Counter-Strike series, referring to two different entities in the series.
The in-game radio, also known as the voice command menu, is an essential part of working with your team. It is used for strategic planning, such as where to strike, and when.
Real players rarely follow radio commands. For bots in multiplayer games, their teamwork (co-op) is set to 75%. They normally follow the player's command. In Condition Zero, Tour of Duty missions, the bots have been modified according to the given teamwork.

- Before Global Offensive, if a human player issued the radio command "Get in position and wait for my go" and "I'm in position" to bots, the bots would disagree with that player.
- In CS:GO however, CTs bots will say "I'm in position" if they are guarding a dropped C4.
- If a human player uses the radio command "Follow Me", some of the bots may say "negative" to that player.
- If a human player uses "Taking Fire, Need Assistance" and/or "Need Backup", usually one bot will agree while the rest will usually disagree.
- In Deleted Scenes, there are unused radio voices in the installation directory which are based on the same quotes as in other games, but have a different voice.
- In older Counter-Strike Betas, there are a few unused and unedited radio commands voiced by Jess Cliffe.
- In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, each faction has their own voice actors (14 in total) which mostly replace Cliffe's original audio files. However, his recorded messages are still used at the end of each round.
