Rise Hard is the final mission in the Counter-Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scenes storyline.


A group of political radicals have taken over a high rise building. In addition to holding many hostages, this group plans to detonate a nuclear device in the next two hours, regardless of demands. Since the SAS doesn't wait two hours for shooting people, the player is sent in to disarm the threat without being detected by the Terrorists.


Main article: Rise Hard/Walkthrough



A group of SAS operatives (including the player) are sent to a nearby high rise by helicopter. As ordered through the mission briefing, the player must sneak into the building while the other operatives provide cover. Once inside the building, the player has been detected by the Terrorists. After traveling some areas of the high rise, the player will find RC Bombs.


After reporting through the radio, the player is ordered to bomb the Terrorist security control and the gun pods. As the pods are being destroyed, the SAS operatives start to strike down the building from the ground level. Most of the combat here takes place in tight-spaced cubicles, so pack a shotgun.

"Pick that knife, you fool!"Edit

When the player reaches the highest level of the skyscraper, he's knocked out. The player wakes up and has no weapons and the Terrorist leader taunts the player and challenges him to a knife fight. Damaging him enough will make him flee; the player must quickly kill a Terrorist and grab his weapon and take the M60 near him for extra firepower.

"You cannot win!"Edit

The player must disarm the C4 and the nuclear bomb, then find two remote-controlled bombs to destroy the crane the Terrorist is hiding in.


  1. Find a way into the skyscraper across from this building.
  2. Locate Radio Controlled Bombs.
  3. Proceed to the 3rd floor and disable the building security.
  4. Disable gun emplacements with RC Bombs.
  5. Proceed to the elevators.
  6. Exit the elevator and proceed to the roof.
  7. Avoid helicopter fire.
  8. Get to the top of the building and recover the nuke.
  9. Fight the Terrorist leader.
  10. Defuse the bombs on communication equipment.
  11. Defuse the nuclear warhead.
  12. Eliminate the Terrorist leader before he can remote detonate nuke.


See: Rise Hard/Transcript



The British SAS is sent to engage the terrorists from detonating a high rise. SAS operatives wear standard uniforms and balaclava. The operatives that are in the same group with the player use the M4A1, Scout and the M60.


The Belfast Terrorists have taken control a high rise building and plan to destroy it in next two hours with nuclear bombs. They will engage the SAS to prevent them from disarming the nuke. In this mission, the Terrorist members wear the same outfits as the Midwest Militia. The weapons used depend on their model. The models are:

Mission notesEdit

  • Two M2 machine guns are used by enemies appear at the beginning of the mission. Since the gunners cannot be killed, be sure to rush as fast as possible to get inside the interior of the building once the enemies are killed outside.
  • The Mi-24 Hind can be shot down while in the building. The Scout is the only weapon capable of destroying the Hind, but it may take about 15 shots or more to destroy. After being destroyed, radio transmissions can be heard.
  • Act fast in the final part! The player can only be healed twice.
  • While at the top of the elevator shaft, some of them may break when stepped on. Shoot the boards to avoid stepping into a deadly trap. The breakable ones will break when shot while the stable ones will never break.
  • The player has about 5 seconds to prevent the nuke from going off when the Terrorist leader activates it with his remote detonator. Plant the RC bomb once the area is clear.
  • If the player jumps out of the building, the mission will fail.
  • If the player also takes too long to defuse the nuclear device while engaging all enemies after 30 seconds, or eliminate the Terrorist leader after 5 seconds, it will explode and cause the mission to fail.
  • There are total of 6 enemies that use the LAW throughout the mission. Stay alert for them.


  • The two M2 machine guns located at the start of the mission are manned by invisible enemies, noticeable when using noclip. They are not affected by the console command notarget since they use the "func_tank" entity.
  • The game file name for this mission is cz_highrise or cz_hr.
  • The missions are comprised of eight maps and two texture files.
  • Some parts of the map Vertigo were improved and used in this mission.
  • A soundtrack is taken from this mission and used in Counter-Strike: Condition Zero when the player fails a mission.
  • The boss head model is the same as the Russian boss from the mission Building Recon.
  • After the boss is "defeated" in the knife fight, he becomes immune to all attacks and only can be killed from his scripted death.
  • If the player uses console commands to spawn members from same factions when the boss is escaping, they will attack each other.
  • The model of the boss can be found in the vip model of Deleted Scenes.
  • Some of the dialogue spoken by the Terrorist leader is later reused by the Joker in Counter-Strike Online.
  • This is the longest mission in Counter-Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scenes.
  • The name of the mission refers to the movie Die Hard.[citation needed]
  • The boss can be killed with the knife by spamming secondary attacks and blocking him from escaping, but the player will not be able to go any further since the doors are only scripted to open for the boss.
  • The ending sequences of this mission is similar to the chapter 9 'Apprehension' ending sequences from Half-Life since when the players tried to proceed, then a black screen appear and the boss/enemy wake them up.
