―Official description

Danger zone

Danger Zone is a Battle Royale mode available in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It was added in the December 6, 2018 update.


Overview

The game can be played Solo or in Duos. There currently is only one map: Blacksite. If played Solo, there are 16 players per game. If played in Duos, there are 18 players per game.

This game mode does not feature respawning (except in Warmup) as it is a last man standing type game.

Danger Zone includes new weapons and mechanics previously not seen in the Counter-Strike series. These new weapons, equipment, and items include: Hammer, Spanner, Axe, Diversion Device, Frag Grenade, FireBomb, Breach Charge, Tablet, Fists, a new version of the C4, and Armor that you can pick up.

Gameplay

Players pick an area of the map to spawn in divided up by hexagons. Once the game starts, players will be parachuted to land in their preferred spawn area. Supply boxes with Secondary Weapons, Grenades, or Medi-Shots can be broke open with fists or other weapons. Primary weapons require a weapon of some kind (Melee weapon, Gun, or Grenade) to open to obtain a Primary weapon. Armor vests and helmets spawn as well as Cash. Picking up Cash will give you $50. By traveling to another hexagon zone, and staying there for a while will reward you a $100 exploration award. You can also get around $700 worth of cash for surviving after the multiple missiles fire to expand the Danger Zone. You can use your Tablet to see where other players are on the map or to buy equipment (Press B for Tablet Buy menu). The things you buy will be delivered via drone in boxes, to the tablet that ordered the item. You can also find locked gates and money safes. Locked gates require you to pay money to open it. There is usually a good supply box with a weapon in it. Money safes are locked but come with explosives wrapped around it. Arming these explosives will destroy the safe, allowing you to collect all the money inside. In the late game, large crates will be dropped from the sky containing better weapons.

In addition to players trying to kill you, there are also missile strikes and the Danger Zone. The Danger Zone eats away the map, forcing players to come closer together.
