They appear in 3 missions:
The Spetsnaz returns for use in Counter-Strike Online. Its model was reused from Condition Zero, and reuses animations from Counter-Strike 1.6. Like the original faction models, this model is available for the players free of charge.
- This faction is recommended to use when playing in snow terrain maps like Office, Vostok or Survivor due to their white and gray camouflage clothing.
- The game file name for this player model is "spetsnaz".
- In Condition Zero, this model is available as skin 5.
- This model may be randomly chosen for the player in the tour of duty mode. Moreover, bots do not use this model in this mode but they may randomly choose it in multiplayer mode if they do not have a preferred model.
- In real life, Spetsnaz only use Russian made weapons, such as the AK-47. In the Counter-Strike games, they can freely purchase other weapons, such as the Maverick M4A1 Carbine.
- In Deleted Scenes, the Spetsnaz are never seen using the M4A1. Instead, they wield the AK-47, despite the rifle being Terrorist exclusive in-game. In Secret War they are largely equipped with the MP5, the USP , the XM1014 and the Scout.
