In maps like cs_office, cs_militia, cs_assault, and cs_italy, the gamemode there involves rescuing at least one hostage. But when you find a hostage and hold the rescue key, sometimes the rescue timer is set to 4 seconds, and sometimes the timer is set to 1 second.

What exactly determines the duration of the timer?

1 Answer 1


Just like a player buys a defuse kit in order to reduce the time it takes to defuse a bomb, he or she can buy a rescue kit as a Counter Terrorist. It exists at the same slot as with the defuse kit in the buy menu. If the player has a rescue kit, the rescue time will be reduced to one second just like you've observed.
