The first thing that you need to do after launching CS 1.6 is to go to the option menu by clicking “Options” on the main screen.
Once you are in the option menu, locate and click the “Keyboard” button.
Look for the “Advanced” button in keyboard options and then click on the small box right next to “Enable Developer Console” to check it. It is normally allowed by default.
Now go back to the main screen and start or join a game.
During the game, press the tilde key on your keyboard. You can recognise the key by the “~” on it. The tilde key is typically located right above the Tab key in keyboards with the QWERTY layout.
When you press the tilde key during game, a command window will appear on screen. This is where you will enter your desired cheat. However, before you enter any particular cheat, enter the cheat code for unlocking all additional codes that can be used in CS 1.6. The code is “cheatlevel dust” without the quotation marks.
If you want to increase the movement speed of your player, press the tilde key to open the console window and then enter “cl_forwardspeed999” without the quotation marks.
You can turn off gravity on the current map that you are playing by entering “sv_gravity” in the console window. This will enable you to jump really high and gain a strategic advantage over your opponents.
You can unlock various types of weapons and equipments using cheats. Just open the console window and enter “giveweapon_” followed by the name of weapon that you want.
You can earn extra cash for buying weapons at the start of the next round by entering “impulse101’ in the console window, or get a VIP character skin through the code “skin vip”.
