“This still seems like a good idea, right guys?”
The Anarchists were added in the August 10th, 2012 update.
The Anarchists wear black hoodies, most with white stripes running down the sides of the sleeves, which cover most of their hands. They wear sunglasses and bandannas over their faces in various colors and patterns (including navy blue stars, red paisley, black skull, and American flags) as well as a beanie and the hood of the jacket over their heads. They also wear either blue or black skinny jeans and tall black biker boots. Their clothes are often dirty and tattered.
All Anarchists wear a backpack. Various patches are seen on their hoodies and backpacks. Many of these patches bear punk-themed symbols, such as American Flags, skulls, stars, fists, guns, and what appear to be fictional punk bands. One model features a patch explicitly stating "I Ⓐ Punk". While patches may vary, every Anarchist has a patch containing at Circle-A anarchy symbol somewhere on their hoodie.
Their style of speech and dress suggests that they are made up of violent rebellious punk teenagers who detest Counter-Terrorist authorities and view crime as a sport. They have a North American accent, similar to the Professionals, although they sound more Californian in comparison to the Professionals' New Yorker sound.
Their hand model features their dark hoodie with two yellow stripes on each sleeve, wrapped around their hands with the fingers sticking out.
- Their appearance is based on the black bloc, a protest tactic often utilized by anarchists in reality.
- On the red-masked Anarchist's backpack, one can see a patch of the Midnight Riders, a fictional hard rock band featured in Left 4 Dead 2, another game made by Valve.
- Interestingly, the American Flag-masked anarchist and one of the blue-masked anarchists share a torso. Their hoodie, patches, and backpack are identical.
- The Anarchists are currently the only terrorist faction to be featured in only one official map.
