The buy menu (main screen). Note: Contains custom content

maps have items and weapons on them, some of them (like Deathrun) require no weapons. One can only buy weapons if (s)he is standing in the buy zone. A green shopping cart on the left indicates that one is standing in it. The use of the buy menu is not always required, as in some game modes, one keeps his/her weapons at the end of the round, and takes them to the next one. Due the fact that players drop their weapons on death, one can pick up the other players' weaponry and equipment, thus not costing money at all. However, it requires at least one player to be killed, and one could have great disadvantage against a fully equipped player if (s)he bought nothing, even bigger if there is no Fog of War.

On some servers there is a predefined time before the game starts. It is called freeze time. The players can neither move nor attack until it passes, hence the name. Use this time to buy the items you need. After that time passes, the game proceeds normally.

Machine GunEdit

These items can be very useful in battles. Some can be used as a defense, while others to mislead and confuse the enemy.

Note: Tactical Shield cannot be bought always, even if one is a Counter-Terrorist. That is because the server does not allow the Tactical Shield to be bought.
