Counter-Strike: Condition Zero is a first-person shooter video game and the sequel to the original Counter-Strike. The game was released in 2004 via both retail stores and Steam and uses the GoldSrc engine. Condition Zero features a multiplayer mode, which features updated character models, textures, maps, and other graphical tweaks.

While it was originally planned to have cross-compatibility between online players of Counter-Strike and players of Condition Zero, the two games feature completely separate multiplayer communities in a much criticized move. For the most part, the multiplayer game itself is identical to that of the original Counter-Strike 1.6.

One major difference is the ability to add bots to servers. These bots function much like any other player taking up regular player slots. The server admin can freely choose the amount of bots they want to include in a server, thus it is also possible to play a multiplayer game solo without other human players using bots.

Counter-Strike: Condition Zero includes support for all the scenarios from the original Counter-Strike (hostage rescue, bomb defusal and assassination). It is also possible to play the escape scenario, but no such maps are included by default and no effort was put into enabling support for this scenario for the bots or the Tour of Duty game mode.

Hostage rescue

When Counter-Strike: Condition Zero was originally released, the hostage rescue scenario was identical to that of the original Counter-Strike. The basics of the scenario still remain the same with Counter-Terrorists attempting to rescue the hostages (4 in all new Condition Zero maps) by bringing them to the hostage rescue zone and Terrorists attempting to foil their plans. Victory can also be attained by eliminating the opposing team.

Bomb defusal

Bomb defusal functions exactly like it does in the original Counter-Strike. One player on the Terrorist team starts off with a bomb which has to be planted at one of two bombsites. Once planted the bomb will detonate after a specific amount of time and successful detonation will lead to victory for the Terrorist team. Counter-Terrorists may attempt to defuse the bomb and successful defusal yields victory to the Counter-Terrorists. Victory can also be attained by eliminating the opposing team.

Assassination

While no new assassination maps were introduced with Condition Zero, the fact that all maps from the original Counter-Strike are included means that the lone assassination map Oilrig is part of the game. Gameplay remains identical to the original game, but other updates were made to support the scenario. To complement the new player models, an upgraded player model is introduced for the VIP.

The official bots also support playing this scenario, but it can be argued that this support was mostly an afterthought. Bots that take the role of the VIP will properly strive to reach escape zones in maps. However, they play like any regular bot making no additional efforts at keeping oneself alive. This is especially apparent when a bot VIP runs out of the limited pistol ammunition, as it will attempt to charge at any encountered enemies armed only with a knife.
