TriviaEdit

  • This player model is frequently used in dark maps such as Prodigy, Nuke and Oilrig.
  • The game file name for this player model is "sas".
  • The SAS was not formed to fight terrorism at first. After the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre, the British government turned to the SAS to answer the concerns of global terrorism. The SAS had already developed their status as the counter-revolutionary warfare unit at that time and they were turned into a Counter-Terrorism unit.
  • Previously an obscure regiment, the SAS came to prominence with their dramatic ending of a terrorist siege at the Iranian Embassy in London in 1980, where their zip line assault through the windows was broadcast live on both main British television channels in prime time on a public holiday.
  • Although the selection icon for the SAS in Condition Zero features them in a brown suit, the in-game model is light blue.
    • CT sniper bots often choose the SAS model in Tour of Duty mode.
  • In Deleted Scenes, most of the levels where the player plays as the SAS are noticeably the hardest and the longest missions of the game.
  • The SAS units in Deleted Scenes speak with an English accent while the ones in Global Offensive speak with a Scottish accent and dialogue.
  • The SAS in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive have an unused model variant present in the in-game files (named ctm_sas_variate.mdl). The model variant is a white camouflage, possibly either confirming that they are going to be included on a map in a future update which will have a snow setting or the white camo was cut from the game. The unused model variant can still be used in custom maps.
    • The white camouflage doesn't have separate hand models, using the original blue sleeves with black gloves instead. This can be seen in custom maps that use the white camo skin.
    • The Union Jack, the flag of the United Kingdom (where the SAS come from) is visible on the SAS playermodel's sleeve in some instances. Other times, it is the SAS emblem.
  • In Operation Phoenix, the FBI replaced the SAS as the Counter-Terrorists on Seaside.
  • One of the quotes said by the SAS, "Watch out for these fellas; they've got a bit of an arsenal and they don't mind using it" is a reference to a quote in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.[2]
