The game content of "Counter-Strike" is the battle between one or optionally four different terrorist groups and their opponents, an anti-terrorist unit. The game objectives are set up in opposite directions. The various maps are mainly about the prevention of hostage rescue (Hostage-Rescue scenario) and the laying and defending of bombs (Defusion scenario), which is tried to prevent by the other party. Two different situations, in which a game character has to be escorted, or a whole team has to reach a security zone, are used by the players much less often or not at all online. The virtual game world shows realistic and detailed scenarios in the form of harbor areas, container and storage halls, forest-like landscapes, and small towns. As a team-based game, the first-person shooter can be played either online with other players or offline with computer opponents and fellow players.
