These cheats work only if they are enabled on the server machine, which is rarely the case. You may also have issues with newer versions of the game.

Set the C4 Timer

This code must also be entered from the Host Computer. Hit the ~ (by default). Enter: Mp_c4timer (enter a # between –1000 and 1000) –1000 will be a very short timer, and 1000 is a long timer.

Silent AWP Shots

in the console, type "bind mouse1 "+attack; impulse 100" then press Enter. When you shoot your AWP or any sniper rifle, your shots will be silent. Be warned, if you try this with a full-auto weapon, chances are you will be killed as the weapon might jam and stop shooting.

Sniping AK47

Aim the crosshair in the middle of the enemy and shoot the bullets two by two. When the crosshair becomes large, run and reload. The target should be dead after you shoot the first two bullets.

Temporary Invincibility

Type bind "setinfo model ../oranget" during game play. Keep pressing the key that was bound to that command to become invincible.

Temporary SAS Appearance as Terrorist

Type bind "setinfo model sas" (for terrorist only). Your whole body will change into UK SAS suit. Keep pressing the key that was bound to that command.
