In late 2018, a unique Battle Royale mode is released in CS:GO. It's called the CS:GO Danger Zone and it only allows 16 to 18 players, depending on whether you play solo or duo/trio. The map is very small compared to other similar games, so the game is suitable only for the most skilled.
During the games, you will carry a personal tablet with which you can track the positions of the opponents, track your supplies and trace a path to avoid the Danger Zone. On the battlefield, there are number of tools and loots to loot that will help you to achieve victory.
The landing zone
The first map available for CS:GO Danger Zone is called Blacksite. There are ports to the east and south, a lighthouse in the upper left corner, the industrial area to the south, and small houses throughout the interior. The sectors filled with players change according to the game.
It is recommended to wait to choose where to land. You want to start in a place with good loots, such as in the east or south of the map, but it will not always be helpful. You have a few seconds to decide your starting point, and it is best to see what places others choose. You don't want to start the game surrounded by three or four players!
If you want to risk going where there are more opponents, try to look around you as you get off the helicopter. Hold the E button (default) to release yourself first. In this way, you will be able to travel before the others and avoid them leaving you without weapons and equipment.
Get weapons, equipment and money quickly
The first thing you must do in the game is to find a weapon, apart from protection and money. There is no time to lose, as the game usually ends in just ten minutes. Although you can find a loot with weapons and equipment from the beginning, all over the map, every minute, boxes of supplies will fall at different points.
As you search, look at the doors. If you see that doors are open, surely the building will already be looted and there may be a player inside. Use this information to plan your next step and look for new weapons and protection in remote locations.
Inspect as fast as you can and, with the money you get, do not wait to open your tablet to buy pistols, submachine guns, grenades, among other things. If you see a green bag, take it to get a large amount of money.
Improve and use your tablet frequently
You can access the tablet with the TAB button or tab (by default). If what you want is to buy from it, you can access it with the same button from the store. It is very important to use it, as it gives you essential information. It warns you of:
- Where are the players?
- Where the new supplies fall,
- What path will your drones take?
- What locations become bombing zones, and
- What is the area of the danger zone?
If you improve the device, you will have more accurate information, such as the expansion area of the CS:GO danger zone or a more exact position of the players. Therefore, it is fit to buy all the improvements in the tablet. Be sure to use it to predict enemy movements and find out which places are the safest.
Pay attention to drones
Drones are responsible for bringing you what you buy on the tablet. Since it is always going to your position, which means that the rest of the players can know where you are exactly. For that reason, drones are a double-edged sword.
Try to keep an eye on the drones you see around you and, with the help of your tablet, prepare a plan to attack your next enemy. If you are successful, not only will you be one step closer to victory, but you will be able to loot what they have bought.
If you want to get several things, the best option is to isolate yourself from the rest of the players and then manage everything on the tablet. A drone will come for each item you buy, so you don't want to do it near enemies. Otherwise, you will get a lot of attention!
Watch your ammunition
There is something that will happen to you more times than you want: you will run out of ammunition. For this reason, you must be careful when facing your opponents. Don't shoot unless you have a sure shot. Don't shoot just in case, either, lest you reveal your position.
All over the map, there are ammo boxes and in fact they are full. However, they don't yield a lot of bullets, so make sure each one is worth it! You can also get ammo in the weapons of killed rivals, but if there is an opponent killed, surely there is one alive nearby.
If you've played CS:GO a lot, you'll know the importance of sound. In CS:GO Danger Zone, careful listening is very valuable. Being aware of the noise of footsteps, gunshots and opening doors will give you a fundamental clue to determine the position of your opponents.
Of course, that means they can listen to you, too. If you see on the tablet that you are in an area with other players, walk and sharpen your senses. Your next victim may be just around the corner and you want to be the one to surprise him, not the other way around!
Complete special Danger Zone missions
You read correctly! In CS:GO Danger Zone, you not only fight to survive but there are also special missions. These will help you to get extra money, which will turn into better weapons and equipment. There are three types of special missions:
- The safes: you will need C4 to exploit them because you will never have the combination. Inside you will find a good sum of money.
- Contracts: You can eliminate a specific enemy during the game, all for a small fee.
- The hostage rescue: You will find hostages tied in some places on the map. You will have to take him to the R areas that you can see on the compass and on the tablet. Taking them there will give you a few hundred tickets.
With these tips, you can now get off the helicopter and fight for your life in intense games that not only the most skilled wins but also very clever.
