The SIG SSG 3000 was a sniper rifle that was planned for the original Counter-Strike Beta but the weapon was never released.

Overview & History

  • The weapon, along with the rest of the mod, was originally revealed on the official Counter-Strike website back when it was still hosted at Planet Half-Life.
  • The weapon was given a description: "Exceptional accuracy (as expected from the Sig line of firearms) can be found in the SSG-3000 bolt action sniper rifle. Used by many European counter-terrorist units, the SSG-3000 is capable of blowing a man's head clean off (e.g. Dirty Harry movies)."[1]
  • The weapon was replaced by the G3/SG-1 before the first beta had been released,[2][3] thus the weapon was dropped from the game.
  • The idea of a 7.62 NATO sniper rifle would not be explored until the release of the Schmidt Scout in the fourth beta.

Trivia

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive features a more modern version of the SSG 3000, the SSG 08 that replaces the Schmidt Scout and serves as a successor to both weapons.
  • According to the official description, the weapon's ability to kill instantly with a headshot was inspired by Dirty Hary movies.
