Starting with Counter-Strike 1.6, updates were only available through Steam and would be applied automatically.

The build was based on the retail version of the game (made up weapons names, altered faction names etc.), but the maps Dust II, Estate, Inferno, Nuke and Vertigo which were missing from the retail release were added. The Training Map was also removed.
