Counter-Strike Nostalgia

Every now and then, I feel nostalgic about this game…

Boosting
Unrealistic, but it was definitely a useful tool for getting teammates to places that otherwise couldn’t be reached to surprise people
Bhopping/Crouch Running
That satisfying kill from crouch hopping around the map and then hopping around a corner and slashing someone in the face.
Lagging in a smoke grenade
Even turning the graphics to 16 bit didn’t help. But at least you could see through the smoke!
Picking mid
I was always terrible at it. Could never pick off the guy running out of CT spawn.
Shooting hostages
We all did this.
Surfing
Flying in the air while the noobs died without understanding why.
Stacking players
Just for teh lulz
awp_map
There was always that one guy who decided to buy a a regular rifle and rush down the map.
fy_iceworld
Most awesome run and gun map created for Counter-Strike
Stacked player defense
It seriously works – well maybe not with 5 people…
Defusing
Likes to blow up right before the defuse is finished. Then at times, we hear the satisfying click of a defused bomb.
Cat with a scout?
I guess this was a LOLcat before they were called LOLcats
Silent plant
Was always scared of defusing these…
FPS
Everyone played at 100 fps, rate 25000, cl_cmdrate 101, cl_rate 25000, and ex_interp 0.01. Otherwise, the settings weren’t optimal.
Knifing
Humiliation!
Suicide bombing
With four other people, we once tried cooking a nade in our hand and running up to one player. As people died, they’d drop their nades hoping that we’d blow up the other guy. Didn’t work.
Teamkilling with grenades
Was always super unexpected, but hilarious.
Accidental teamkilling
I once got shot by my teammate when I ran through mid while he was picking it…noob mistake.
That awkward moment
Happens to the best of us.
Trolling with non-standard weapons
I once 1v5 clutch aced using a para…all in the name of trolling.
Stacked running
Was always a nice surprise to those unsuspecting enemies.
Eco rounds
Leads to camping and clutch wins.
Camping
We’ve all done it. Campmeter = 100%.
Driving
I’m sure everyone tried to drive a car to run over other people and then somehow die when another car intersected with their own. Somehow, the player would then fly up to the ceiling and fall to his death.
One-click headshots
Probably the second most satisfying kill. Strafe out of a corner, click, win.
Screenshot rounds
An annoying but necessary chore for league play. Had to be done before lo3.
Hopping through the window
Anybody in league play had to know how to do this. Unfortunately for me, I sucked at it.
Defusing the bomb through the floor on de_nuke
Classic Pubmasters game play. It works.
Flashbangs
I team flashed for fun. Or other times, I’d be blind as a bat and get gang knifed.
Riot shields
Use them when you can’t win. A nice and annoying weapon. There was once a bug on amx mod where if you were carrying a gun, you could spawn a riot shield for that player and the player would be able to use a gun and a riot shield at the same time. Very OP.
Spam spots
I had those memorized at one point.
