Counter Strike: Global Offensive is the latest incarnation of the wildly popular online shooter developed by the world renowned team at Valve. Released more than a decade after it's original counterpart, Global Offensive brings the fast paced tactical shooting experience to consoles everywhere. It keeps classic games modes such as Bomb Defusal and Hostage Rescue, whist bringing two new game modes; Arms Race and Demolition. Whether you're a Terrorist or Counter-Terrorist, you'll work as a team to play the objective and win.

[top]Tips & Strategies

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a very run n' gun type of game. Your best bet to prolonging each life is to think ahead a bit. Instead of running straight into targets, move around. Make yourself a harder target to hit. Use things like strafing, jumping, cover, and a combination of the three to ensure you win the gun fight.

CS:GO has great sound work and design. Taking a second to listen for enemy footsteps can be a fantastic way to gain the advantage in a firefight. Keeping both ears open can also help in telling you, not only where someone is nearby, but how many and what they're doing. This makes catching people off-guard all the more easy.

Choose weapons that suit you. If you;re not comfortable using an assault rifle, try a shot gun, for a sniper. Mix it up, there are a ton of good weapons in CS:GO. Variety can not only make you a better player, but keep the game fresh.

The 'Easy' Way
It's come to may attention that most, if not all of these trophies can be attained in the Offline Bot mode by choosing 'Easy Bots' And carrying out each task at hand. For those who are having significant trouble, this may be the way to go, significantly cutting the amount of time it takes to 100%...but with 0% of the fun.

4. Optional) If you're having any trouble with trophies, try hooking up with a friend to knock them out.

Now sit back and enjoy a very fun platinum.


CS:GO Platinum Trophy
Collected all other CS:GO trophies.

Hop out on the field and fight along side your comrades for this battle hardened platinum.

Shot With Their Pants Down
Kill an enemy while they are reloading.

In the heat of battle folks will have to swap for a fresh clip in order to keep on fighting. All you have to do here is take advantage of that and blow your opponent away before he gets that round in his chamber. This will be one of, if not the first trophy you'll come by. Very self-explanitory and you'll pick this up through natural play.

Make the Cut
Win a knife fight.

Just because Counter Strike is a shooter, doesn't mean you can't fillet an enemy or two in process of steam-rolling the opposing team. Both you and your opponent must have your knife drawn and you both must take damage. In the heat of battle, the best way to ensure victory is the ol' tried and true circle-strafe. Dosey-doe around your opponent and land strikes at the best moments. Once he's dead, enjoy your trophy.

Eye to Eye
Kill a zoomed-in enemy sniper with a sniper rifle of your own.

Snipin' snipers, though a giddy treat, it's one of the toughest things to do in CS:GO. There aren't a lot of snipers in game. Most people like to use automatic weapons, which isn't a bad thing but it makes this trophy kinda tough.

You could nab this through natural play buy using a sniper all the time, but you can also get the chance in the gamemode Arms Race since a sniper rifle is in the gun cycle.

Lastly you can always boost it by inviting a friend and joining opposite teams then shoot at each other. Just make sure you're both looking through the scope.

Bunny Hunt
Kill an airborne enemy.

It's a bird, it's a plane! Nope, just your next target. Your very best bet is to nab this playing Arms Race. There is so much rushing around, jumping, gun action, just epically chaotic. Play a good bit of this and you're surely to pick off a flying enemy, but if you can't, you can boost this one too. Not too shabby.

Magic Bullet
Kill an enemy with the last bullet in your magazine (excluding sniper rifles and Zeus x27).

Killing someone with your very last round is not a chore at all. This will happen on your way toward all the other trophies, because you'll be mowing down endless amounts of enemies on your way to this platinum.

Tip: Arms Race is a very good place to pick this up, or using a shotgun, like the XM1014, in the other game modes.

Blind Fury
Kill an enemy while you are blinded from a flashbang.

Revved up like a deuce, another runner in the nigh...oh...Um. Moving on.

Grenades, in general, aren't too common in CS:GO, so getting flashed by an enemy is probably few and far between. Luckily, you can take one for the team, and flash yourself. Once you're sure you've got an enemy in sight, run up and chuck a flash grenade at the ground to be blinded by the light as you spray down your foe.

Simple as that.

Blast Will and Testament
Win a round by picking up the bomb from a fallen comrade and successfully planting it.

First you need to be on the Terrorist side, and this is best done in the game mode Bomb Defusal. Getting that out of the way, there are two effective ways of approaching this.

One) Once the game starts, the game will randomly choose who gets the bomb to plant. If it's you, then play the round and wait for the next one. The trick here is to follow the planter around, so that once he's picked off you can grab the bomb, rush to a site, and plant it. Remember, it has to go off, winning the round in order to count.

Boosting. Have your friend or friends choose opposite teams, and have everyone killed except yourself and whoever else is boosting with you. That way you can have the map to yourself to pull off this feat. And again, it has to go off, winning the round in order to count.

Born Ready
Kill an enemy with the first bullet after your respawn protection ends in Arms Race mode.

During a game of Arms Race, each kill awards you a new gun. The very best chunk of guns to use for this are the shotguns. They pack a wallop. I'm talkin' cross-map murderin'. For the best results rush up to an enemy and blast him right in the noggin'. Even if it takes two shots to kill him, there are still more shotguns to cycle through, which give you more chances of one-shotting a target.

The Unstoppable Force
Kill four enemies within a single round.

See, The Cleaner.

The Cleaner
In Classic mode, kill five enemies in a single round.

In classic Bomb Defusal & Hostage Rescue, each team has a max player roster of 5 players per team. It keeps the games fast paced and playing smooth. For this one, you're going to have to brush up on your Rambo skills and wipe the entire team out yourself. This may seem tricky, but a good gun like the XM1014 can blast holes in the opposition in no time flat.

Alternatively, there's always the 'Easy Way'.

Dead Shepard
Kill an enemy who is leading the hostages without injuring the hostages.

In a game of Hostage Rescue the Counter-Terrorists can rush in and rescue the hostages the terrorists are keeping. Obviously. Here, you're gonna use these hostages to your extreme advantage. Simply stay back and wait for some lone-wolf-hero to stroll in and take a few hostages with him. Let him think he's in the clear, and that's when you'll make your move. Run up from behind, clear of the hostages, and take him down.

To make things even more in your favor your team can be composed of your friends, and you can orchestrate the entire thing. But isn't that the point of a team based game, anyways?

Be the first player to get a kill in an Arms Race or Demolition match.

The only thing you need here are some balls (Or ovaries for all those lady gamers. )

Just be assertive, and this will come naturally. Once the game starts, run right toward the enemy spawn, and ruin an that guys day. Don't be a fuddy-duddy, hop in a game of Arms Race or Demolition and get in there!

Still Alive
Survive more than 30 seconds with less than ten health in Arms Race or Demolition mode.

Opposite strategy of the above trophy, the only sure-fire way here is to hide. Once your heath in that low, there is no going back. No heath drops, med-kits, or regenerating life bars. When you're in the red, you'd better find a cozy spot to hold up in, for this trophy. CS:GO can be a fast game, you don't wanna get caught up in a firefight in the worst possible moment.

Kill a player who is on gold knife level in Arms Race Mode.

There are 26 levels of guns to cycle through in Arms Race. The very tippy top tier is a golden knife. Here it's your job to 'prolong' the game by whipping out a can of wreck-sauce on the enemy who's about to win the game for the other team.

The knife in CS:GO isn't like some other shooters knives. It isn't insta-kill, it can can a few slashes to take a guy down. So if you get face-to face with Mr. Goldie Knife, then you should be able to pump him full of lead before he gets too close.

Kill an enemy who is dominating you.

In the game mode Arms Race you can instantly respawn at the touch of a button. Even though you have a 5 second invulnerably it can lead you to gettin' the whoopin' of a lifetime. Once you've been killed by a particular enemy enough times, a red marker will appear on their picture on the top of your screen. It looks the end of a pistol barrel, and that'll be the guy to hunt down. In the hectic mess you'll have no problem picking him off. Then it's high-time to do some domination of your own.

Repeat Offender
Dominate an enemy.

Much like the trophy above, you've gotta kill the same enemy in succession, over n' over, until you've started 'dominating' him. Now you can die here, you don't really have to worry about that. You just can't be killed by the guy you're trying to dominate, as it will reset the count.

As above, best done in Arms Race.

Kill an enemy whom you are already dominating.

Continuing again from above, all you need to keep on killing the same person over n' over n' over. Just beat the snot out of some folks. Once you've started dominating, you can't stop. You must lay waste to them!

As above, again, best done in Arms Race.

Win an Arms Race match without dying.

Besides the sniping trophy, this is the toughest of the bunch, potentially. Basically you have to play a flawless game of Arms Race, start to finish. This can take a lot of trying and failing, and to be honest I think that's best. You'll develop a feel of the game and only get better.

Then again, there's the 'Easy Way', as can be used with a lot of these trophies.

Set up an offline Arms Race with bots, and set the bot difficulty to Easy, then have at it. Takes the spark out of the game, but legitimate players well have something to talk about around the water cooler.
