Desert Storm

Desert Storm (hs_desertstorm) or Sandstorm (for Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies) is the first Human Scenario map in Counter-Strike Online.


After we have obtained the sample of Phobos corpse from the unidentified facility, our troops started to transport it to the headquarters. We have decided to take a roundabout way through the desert for a safer route. While traveling in the desert, a large scale of fire started to rain above our head in a sudden. Due to this sudden attack, we need to find cover quickly and hide ourselves in the nearby ruined place to ensure the safety of the samples. Even with a glance, we could notice that enemies are coming in armies with lots of elite soldiers with huge airborne weapons. They were not zombies! Who are they?

From the diary of transportation support troop commanding officer, Victor.

Victor msg
  1. This is Commander Victor. Survival unit, please response.
  2. We kept the samples in the northwest headquarters which is 5km away from you.
  3. I've received a report from reconnaissance unit which mentioned that they have captured the enemy's position.
  4. I believe they must have thought that the sample is with you.
  5. I am requesting for directed bombing, so please try to utilize it to earn their attention.

Comanche Combat

  1. I believe they have just sent you a small gift.
  2. That type is Comanche. I've known it as it is discarded in the middle of development...
  3. Anyway, please defeat it and rescue us.
  4. Good luck.


Round 1 ~ 9

  • Use the default MP5 or automatic sniper rifles to engage.
  • Avoid going outside as you will get easier to be shot and get killed.
  • Aware of grenades.

Round 10

  • Use anti-material weapons like AT4, M95, AS50 or AT4-CS.
  • Hide downstairs when the Comanche is about to use its rockets.
  • Set up Sentry gun on upstairs to aid in engaging Comanche and Vanguard troop.


Honor mission

Title Description Task
Comanchekiller[Comanche Hunter] Gentleman, do you know a method to destroy high-tech weapon? It is pretty Simple, Hit and Run!! If you have the ability to aim straight at the enemy's weak point, you'll notice that even an astronomical figure price weapon is just a scrap iron for a noob! (Available in Annihilation: Desert Storm/Pursuit: Hellfire maps) Defeat Comanche for 100 times.
