HellStrike is a hardcore tactical conversion of Counter-Strike 1.6 that overhauls almost every aspect of the game --from shooting to movement, to gun mechanics and gameplay, to the UI and sound design-- into a more methodical and realistic engagement. Choose your role, buy your guns, select their attachments, then charge into battle. Die. Respawn. Repeat. There will be no rest for you in Hell, soldier...

More Movement Options
Sprint your way into battle or sneak in by staying low on the ground in prone. Slide amid hostile fire into the cover of a low wall. Take quick peeks around corners or do a quick side step with the dodge to surprise enemies. Now you have plenty of ways of approaching and getting shot.
Overhauled Shooting and Gun Mechanics
Aim down sights for better accuracy. (Because, you know, there's no crosshair here) Crouch for an even better one or go prone if you still can't hit a damn thing. Switch to semi-auto to improve it a bit more and conserve ammo, as you'll run dry fairly quickly.
Your gun not tactical enough for you? Buy a reflex sight for a better sight picture, or a low powered scope for some magnification. Suppressors to reduce your gun's noise by half and hide its identity thru sound. LAMs for the blokes too lazy to look down sights or hollow points and armour piercing rounds for some serious damage. Now your baby is ready to dance.
No half-second reloads here so plan them wisely. Compulsive reloaders will be punished as leftover rounds do not magically fly back to their inventory. Reload with some rounds left to recover a bit quicker, skipping the charging handle, or dump the whole mag and reload a bit slower; your choice.
Detachable helmet and vests that disappear when broken. Stamina system for activities like sprinting and jumping. Shoot a guy enough on the arms and he'll have a harder time managing recoil, he might even drop his gun. Shoot him enough on the legs and he'll start limping, even dropping down to prone. Or they may just bleed out before they die. In which time they can take you with them if you don't finish them off quickly.
Know Your Role
Four Roles to choose from. The all-around Rifleman. The quick but inaccurate Medic. The flimsy but precise Marksman. And the slow but durable Support. Each role has their own weapon affinities and items unique to them to help their team-- or just help themselves if they're being jerks.
And Many More
New player models. New custom maps. New weapon models with awesome animations. New UI system. New game modes (Team Deathmatch and Reinforcements). Advanced battlefield sound design with bullet whizzes, distant gun shots, player reactions, etc. Sell weapons. Kick down doors. Pick up a grenade, throw it back at them. And after the smoke clears, there's still more...
MY VIDEO SETTINGS CHANGED NOW I CAN'T PLAY
Look for the 'hl_bckup' file. Open the archive then follow the instructions in the 'readme.txt'.
Alternate regedit solution:
ERROR 5899: METADATA FILE MISSING OR DAMAGED
Read first item above.
Your anti-virus probably quarantined it.
After you've added HellStrike in your anti-virus' exceptions:
1. Open 'hl_bckup' archive
3. Rename to 'hl.exe'.
ANTI-VIRUS SAYS HL.EXE IS A VIRUS
HellStrike uses Metahook, another plugin platform for GoldSrc games. For this to work it needs a modified 'hl.exe'. This is what your anti-virus is detecting. I assure everyone it is not malicious but I also will NOT force anyone to play it. So if you do not feel confident then skip playing this mod. However, if you feel you can trust me then just add HellStrike to your anti-virus' exceptions.
FAILED TO INITIALIZE AUTHENTICATION INTERFACE - STEAM PROBLEM
1. Open regedit.
2. Go to Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Valve\Steam\ActiveProcess
3. Modify SteamClientDll and put the directory of the steamclient.dll in the Steam folder in Value Data. (you can just copy the Value Data of SteamClientDll64 and paste it on Value Data of SteamClientDll and erase the 64 in steamclient64.dll.)
5. Restart Steam.
To prevent this error from happening, leave Steam open when you play HellStrike.
I HAVE NO HUD
Hold TAB button.
I STILL HAVE NO HUD
You probably overwrote the HellStrike files over another CS client. To fix, extract HellStrike into an empty folder. Double-click 'hellstrike.exe' then play. As for the other CS client, sorry but it's probably messed up now and we can't help you with that.
I INSTALLED A MAP BUT IT WON'T LOAD SOMETHING ABOUT A PRECACHE PROBLEM
1. Go to 'cstrike\addons\amxmodx\configs'
2. Open 'plugins-hstrike.ini' in Notepad
3. Find the line that says 'hstrike/unprecacher.amxx'
4. Put a semi-colon (;) at the start of that line. (ie. ';hstrike/unprecacher.amxx')
5. Save and exit.
The 'unprecacher' plugin blocks seldom or never used assets from being precached, freeing up resources. The map probably uses an asset that is blocked from being precached. Adding the semi-colon disables the plugin.
Maps that uses lots of custom models and sounds may not load if you leave the unprecacher disabled. Be sure to enable it to free up precache slots...

I hope in the next update we can play with real players. Can't wait for more content. Amazing work always, keep it up.
Still a long way to go. I wish to just push out all the features we had in mind. After that we'll try to optimize the mod more for multiplayer. Then after that, if someone is still interested, I might look for a server. Problem is money is getting tighter and tighter these days...
I bet there're gonna be a lot of fans of this mod hosting server willingly. You'll just need to set up a master server for browsing.
Glad you're still active here, and my suggestion is exposing some more game settings like reinforcemence interval, waves, frag reward, etc. in game option window or in AMXX cfg files.
looking to v1.3
You're not wrong about that. Anyways, i hope we get to have server soon. That's when the real fun begins with this mod.
Author, this mod has a probability of not getting up after the shovel, but after a while it can get up
You might be too near an object like a wall or another player that blocks you from getting up. It does that so you won't get stuck into said objects...
Hi mate, congratulations for the mod, it is awesome, I'm really enjoying it, I have a question, do you have some plans to add more game-modes like zombie plague, firefight (something like in halo), VIP, etc. at some point.
However are your plans, take your time, thanks for this!
Hi there! Sorry for the late reply. Zombie, hehe! It's a far off idea but if we do get around it we'll put our own spin into it. A few ideas have already been tossed around. But it's not a concrete plan yet, nor is any other new game modes. The focus now is pushing out the rest of the features and working on stability. Multiplayer is still a bit clunky.
Anyway, thanks for playing!...
i have thought, well what about a survival mode similar to Insurgency
VIP Mode already exists. If you get VIP maps you can run them in the mod, and it works the same way. But VIP Has about 200 armor this time.
Having 200 armor isnt't new. The only new feature is you get random pistols
Yeah forgot to mention that.
Yeah, you're right, but another game-modes like as example zombie plague can be integrated as addons or they need to be a new mod?
I feel like there won't be a zombie plague mod because it won't fit with the game's aspect. Also, the game is about overhauling the old Counter Strike, that's why there is no new game modes. But the game uses amxmodx so you can add zombie plague mod yourself. Me personally, if the devs will be making different game mode instead of just bombs and hostage, i am looking forward to domination or free for all just like in call of duty.
