Siege (cs_siege) is an official hostage rescue map featured in Counter-Strike. Due to numerous sniping positions, the size of the map, and the difficulty in escorting the hostages successfully to the hostage rescue zone, it is one of the less popular Hostage rescue maps.
Counter-Terrorists: Enter the POW stronghold and rescue the hostages. Take out the Terrorists without jeopardizing the hostages.
Terrorists: Prevent Counter-Terrorist force from rescuing the hostages.
Other Notes: There are 4 hostages in the mission.
Remake of cs_siege, a large hostage map from Counter Strike 1.6.
As a counter-terrorist, infiltrate the industrial complex to rescue the hostages.
As a terrorist, prevent the hostages rescue.
Counter-Strike: Global OffensiveEdit
The map was remade and was changed into an industrial setting secluded in a jungle environment. Balancing issues were addressed and partially fixed to ensure the Counter-Terrorist team was no longer pinned down by Terrorist snipers, especially in the garage at the Terrorist Spawn Zone. Throughout the map. players are given more infiltration routes to take in order to avoid snipers. Moreover. at least one hostage will not spawn at the security center/bunkers and is usually found near the garage.
- This is the oldest map in Counter-Strike saga that is still played, and the second oldest map ever, before cs_mansion.
- The Counter-Terrorist bots in Counter-Strike: Condition Zero may accidentally fall down the hole just in front of the spawn point, causing severe damage or even death. However, this is very rare as CT bots cannot progress further if they descend down the hole and attempt to travel through the mines as they are unable to use the button to activate the elevator at the end of the mine.
- Bots and hostages (in Condition Zero) tend to become stuck when they are attempting to enter the vent above the SUV from the facility, thus wasting time. When this happens, one should crouch below that bot. This does not work for hostages however.
- Bots can become stuck at the automatic door next to the elevator as well. They will attempt to walk through it.
- The elevator in the mines should be used with caution, it is easy to get hurt here.
- In the early beta versions of Counter-Strike, Siege was set in the morning. In Beta 6.1, it was changed to night. In Beta 7.1, it was changed again to evening.
- In Beta 7.1, it is possible to drive the APC at the Counter-Terrorist spawn area.
- Unlike the other Hostage Rescue maps in the beta, Siege featured several routes for infiltration.
- This is the one of the few official maps that has an operational elevator for players to use, though bots will never use the elevator.
- In Counter Strike 1.6, there is a secret in the mines. Using free look spectate mode or noclip, reach the entrance that is covered by wooden planks and then move behind far enough to look at the direction the blocked entrance is facing to see the developer names.
