This is a modified version of Colt Anaconda fed with 7 rounds of .50 AE Holy, a special ammunition made by holy water. Upon hitting zombies, the holy water will give an afterburn effect to the enemies.
Tactics using Anaconda
- Use it in close to medium battle, as it is not very accurate in long range.
- It shouldn't be used to deal with zombies in long range due to the damage decreasement over range.
- It is best to use it only if you ran out of ammo with the primary weapon to either escape or finish off the zombie.

Cocking the hammer
- This is the first revolver that appears in Counter-Strike Online.
- In real-life, Colt Anaconda can only be fed with .44 Special, .44 Magnum, .45 Colt cartridges.
- The in-game caliber was likely due to Anaconda being originally planned as a skin for the IMI Desert Eagle, before it was released as a standalone weapon
- On the early release of Anaconda, it used Desert Eagle's firing animation.
- The firing animation shows the player cocking the hammer after each shot, although this can be skipped by firing fast enough.
- The engraved words of "COLT ANACONDA .44 MAGNUM" can be seen on the weapon's barrel.
- The Anaconda's model has 7 cylinders, since it is modeled with the Desert Eagle's coding as a base.
- Its Counter-Strike Online 2 version has 6 cylinders instead of 7 with 36 reserved bullets instead of 35.
- This is the only cash weapon that neither has a permanent sale nor could be obtained permanently from Code Box in the Indonesia region.
- CSO Thailand was the only region that imposed a level restriction (2 and above), making the Anaconda purchasable with gamepoints. However, this region no longer exists.
- There was an HQ model of this weapon which includes a different animation and better hand texture quality. However, it was cut and replaced with lower quality model but the store preview still features the HQ one.
