Be careful, let's all make it home tonight.
―SWAT

The SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) is a Counter-Terrorist faction featured in Counter-Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scenes and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

They were introduced to the Global Offensive Beta in the August 10th, 2012 update.

Official Description

Counter-Strike: Deleted Scenes

The first Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team was established by inspector Daryl Gates in the Los Angeles Police Department in 1968.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

In addition to counter-terrorism, SWAT teams are called in for hostage extraction, perimeter security and riot control.[1]

Appearance

In Counter-Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scenes, SWAT members simply are recycled Navy SEALs operatives. The Miami SWAT team has navy blue uniforms with a police badge on either sleeve. Their vests have "POLICE" printed on the front and back and the badge once again appears on the front right.

In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the SWAT officers wear grey uniforms with black gloves and boots, as well as black ballistics vests with flashlights attached. The word "POLICE" is printed on their outer arms and helmets.

The default gloves of the SWAT team are black hard knuckle gloves.

The SWAT Chemical Hazard Specialists are able to survive and succeed in toxic environment operations for hours at a time. Where others run away, they run in. Feels like home.

Tyler Bobson earned his moniker after becoming SWAT's go-to officer for efficient Explosive Ordnance Disposal. With his uncanny ability to locate even the most well hidden IEDs, Bombson's keen hearing is outclassed only by the noble Greater Wax Moth. Yeah, I heard that.

John 'Van Healen' Kask is one of SWATs best tactical defence units and on-site military paramedics. He also shreds a mean guitar—sometimes mid-operation. He says it helps get his teammates' blood pumping just as effectively as an AED, which he keeps ready in case of emergency. I can bring you back to life, but I can't make you live.

No one else knows how to enjoy combat ops that require sunscreen, mosquito repellant and M4A4 assault rifles quite like Farlow does. Kinda nice to get out of the cold don't ya think?

1st Lieutenant Farlow

1st Lieutenant Farlow is a Superior agent added in Operation Broken Fang. This agent can be purchased from the Operation Broken Fang Shop for 10 stars (random selection of all 5 superior agents) or from the Steam market.

Customplayer ctm swat variantf.png

Smart as a whip and relentlessly polite, 1st Lieutenant Farlow is one of the most beloved and respected officers in SWAT. A master tactician in hostage and barricade situations, Farlow quickly climbed the SWAT ranks. Don't be fooled by her overwhelmingly cheerful nature--she can dispatch bad guys in the blink of an eye and not think twice about it. What are they doing over there? Drinking milkshakes?

Cmdr. Mae 'Dead Cold' Jamison

Cmdr. Mae 'Dead Cold' Jamison is a Master agent added in Operation Broken Fang. This agent can be purchased from the Operation Broken Fang Shop for 25 stars or from the Steam market.

Customplayer ctm swat variante.png

Cmdr. 'Dead Cold' Jamison has just about seen it all. Skeptical and wry in the midst of deadly combat, others could mistake her for being nonchalant about the chaos at hand. They would be wrong. Nothing gets past Dead Cold, not bad guys with AK-47s, junior officers that call her 'Ma'am,' or an opportunity to make elite officers smirk under pressure. You're gonna find out.

Map Appearances

The SWAT appears in two missions.

Turn of the Crank

In this mission, the California SWAT team from Modesto takes charge. They are tasked with neutralizing Moses Sepulveda, a Colombian drug lord working with members of a local drug cartel. The player is equipped with a briefcase wired to send a message for the raiding teams and a hidden P228 for self-defense. Moses is aware that it is a bust and manages to escape. He is eventually caught and killed in his office by the player.

Miami Heat
In this mission, the Miami-Dade SWAT team assess the scene; desperate and heavily armed robbers successfully hold all civilians hostage, and set up demands, saying that a hostage will be killed if their demands are not met in two hours. The player must get to the drainage system, meet up with the rescue team, and rescue all of the hostages in the employee area. After that, the player communicates with the rest of the team to send backup. Two operatives rappel down and one comes in through the window, killing all threats, except the boss whom the player kills, ending the threat.

Trivia

  • The models of the SWAT in Deleted Scenes are based on the models of U.S. Navy Seals; some in the mission "Turn of the Crank" are direct copies.
  • Currently, The SWAT faction is the only faction introduced in the Xbox Counter-Strike/Counter-Strike: Condition Zero to reappear in an official Source game.
  • Although not included in Counter-Strike 1.6, there is a reference to the SWAT faction in the map description of Survivor.
  • A Global Offensive Steam Trading Card depicts a SWAT officer wearing a balaclava and wielding a G3SG1. This portrayal is inaccurate in-game as they don't wear balaclavas.
