How to Bind Keys to Cheats

To make using cheat codes easier, bind them to keys. For example, to bind the free money code to the X key, enter the following into the cheat console:

bind x "impulse 101"

You can now get $16,000 at any time by pressing the X key.

To unbind the X key, enter the command unbind X or unbindall.

Silent AWP Shots

To silence your AWP or sniper rifle shots, enter the following into the console:

bind mouse1 "+attack; impulse 100"

If you try this with a full-auto weapon, chances are you will be killed as the weapon might jam and stop shooting.

Temporary Invincibility

You can achieve temporary invincibility by binding the command "setinfo model ../oranget" to a key. For example:

bind X "setinfo model ../oranget"

With the above command, you can keep pressing the X key to remain invincible.

Temporary SAS Appearance as Terrorist

You can temporarily change your appearance by binding the command "setinfo model sas" to a key. For example:

bind X "setinfo model sas"

With the above command, your whole body will change into the UK SAS suit when you press X.

Half-Life: Counter Strike Gore Code

The see splattered blood and bones as you kill enemies, bind the command "impulse 102" to a key and keep pressing it to see the trail of carnage.

Sniping With the 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.
