    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is an online first-person shooter developed by Valve Corporation and Hidden Path Entertainment, who also maintained Counter-Strike: Source after its release. It is the fourth game in the Counter-Strike franchise, excluding Counter-Strike: Neo and Counter-Strike: Online. Global Offensive was released on 21 August 2012 and made available for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Xbox 360 via the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation 3 via PlayStation Network. It features classic content, such as old maps, as well as brand new maps, characters and game modes. It supports matchmaking and leaderboards. An Elo rating system prioritizes matching players by skill. Cross-platform multiplayer was planned between Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and PlayStation 3 players,but was ultimately limited to PC and Mac due to the differences in update frequency between the systems. The PlayStation 3 version will offer three control methods, which include using either the DualShock 3 controller, PlayStation Move or USB keyboard/mouse.

    [h2]FAQ[/h2]
    CS:GO FAQ PAGE posted:
    Q) How do I activate the console?
    A) Activate the console in Help & Options -> Game Settings -> Enable developer console. This will then allow you to open the console using the tilde key ~.

    Q) How do I open the server browser?
    A) The community server browser is available in the main menu, and can also be accessed from the pause menu while in-game.

    Q) Can I host my own dedicated server?
    A) The full version of CSGO will allow community run dedicated servers on both Windows and Linux.

    Q) Can I make maps for CSGO?
    A) Yes, there will be a new SDK available after the full game has been released. During the beta you can start laying out your map ideas with the current Counter-Strike: Source SDK.

    Q) How do I play competitively?
    A) Enter a competitive match using Find A Game -> Classic Competitive

    Q) Why does my crosshair change size?
    A) The crosshair consists of multiple parts. The most obvious section is the dot in the middle which is used for aiming. The traditional cross hatch moves as you move and provides rough accuracy. The brackets represent the weapon accuracy at all times including being stationary and firing.

    Q) Why can I sometimes defuse the bomb faster than other times?
    A) On the counter-terrorist side if you are carrying a defuse kit it will halve the defuse time. The defuse kit appears as a small pair of needle nose pliers in the lower right corner of your in-game UI.

    Q) What are the minimum and/or suggested system specs?
    A) Head to our Steam page to see the hardware requirements for CS:GO.

    Q) Why arenít the characters solid?
    A) In Casual mode players can pass through each other as their bodies are not solid. In Competitive mode the playerís bodies are solid and they cannot pass through each other. This also allows for player stacking in competitive mode.

    Q) Will there be more modes?
    A) Yes. CS:GO has two versions of the Classic Counter-Strike Gameplay, Casual and Competitive. It also has two gun progression modes: Arms Race, and Demolition.

    Q) Will there be team match making?
    A) Yes. We are working on this feature.

    Q) Will there be a replay system?
    A) Yes, we will be implementing this feature at a later date.

    Q) What tools will there be for spectating?
    A) The current version the beta has very limited tools for spectating a match. We will be improving those tools and features during the beta.

    Q) How can I see my ping?
    A) Ping is visible on the left side of the scoreboard.

    Q)Are there any plans to open up games to more than 5v5?
    A) Yes. Official servers support up to 20 players, and the scoreboard is designed to support up to 24.

    Sure thing, what are some common fixable problems people have?
    I'm having an issue. Whenever I do matchmaking and go to the 2nd map after the one that I joined I can't choose a team. It also gives me my PC cursor and the GO cursor on top of eachother. I can hover over each one and they highlight and everything, but clicking does nothing. I can hear the game going on and everything. I have to restart everytime this happens. Any help?
    I did some research on my own problem and found out that this is a now very common issue with the MOTDs that Valve added in recently.

    There is no real fix yet, but if you click the top right of Spectate on team selection, it will let you join a team. It's like clicking the GO button on the MOTD, just as if it weren't there.

    Example:

    The zombie MOD is only available in the community servers. Valve only did the models and maybe some other stuff for the zombie mode, it's not official.

    For Zombie Escape, type in console: "connect zego.plaguefest.com"

    For Zombie Mod: "connect zmgo.plaguefest.com"

    Apparently these are the only zombie servers since PF doesn't want to release it publicly.

    As I said in the previous thread, the zombie mod is, obviously, a MOD.

    Valve only supplied an official zombie model. Aside from that, you'll have to download it from a server yourself.

    They never said they'd include it with CSGO's installation.

    Flashlight has always been in GO, it's only in community servers where it's on however.
