Ganymede or Metus or Siege Type Deimos is a playable zombie character in Counter-Strike Online exclusive to Zombie: The Mutation, Zombie: The Hero and Zombie: The Union. It appears as AI-controlled mini-boss in Zombie Scenario.
According to the Aegis research data, it is classified as a Siege-type Deimos, and is called as an alias Ganymede separately. It is very threatening because it has strong physical strength and agility to penetrate human beings through shootings that are optimized for human infection. It has a skill to rush towards humans.
The Ganymede has the same speed and strength as Deimos but with different skill set.
Its [Charging] skill allows it to break through enemy fortifications easily by nullifying any stun received from enemy gunfire at the cost of movement speed.
After the Zombie Mode Rework patch, the [Hardening] skill is added ( by default), which regenerates a certain amount of Ganymede's lost armor points.
Ganymede has 3000 health points and 400 armor points (3500 health points and 450 armor points with Strong Lifepower). Ganymede's skill not only increases its speed, stun resistance and defense but also increases its damage by 100%. This damage increment stacks with 3x Damage, giving him a whooping 6x Damage if both skills are used at the same time.
Ganymede was introduced the first time in Cube as a mini-boss. Later, it appears in most chapters of Zombie Scenario. It has 16,000 HP.
It also appears in extra chapters as the boss in Round 2, which has 100,000 HP. The players must defeat it to go to Round 3. Ganymede can do 'rush' skill, similar to Phobos. The skill will kill any human player hit within the dash range.

- The dash skill, however, can only be used by AI-controlled Ganymedes in Zombie Scenario.
- In Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies, before the Free Update, Ganymede was sold in a package with Deimos, instead of Bloody Blade.
- There is a bug with Ganymede's hitbox where if he is crouching and rapidly turning, human players will unable to damage it as if its hitbox doesn't exist, but still can be injured with explosives or melee. This bug is shared with Deimos and was fixed after Free Update patch.
- After the Zombie Mode Rework patch, its defense has been increased, while the movement speed and jump height have been decreased slightly.
- Before, Ganymede's [Charge] skill allowed it to move as fast as a berserking Regular zombie, now it gives higher knockback and stun resistance but lower movement speed when activated.
- The skill also no longer requires an amount of HP to be used.
