Counter Strike Online Wiki

Money is a currency featured in the Counter-Strike series and Counter-Strike Online. Players start out a game with a specified amount (usually $800 but can be set up to $2500, $5000 and $7500), and will receive more as the game goes on, with the maximum amount a player can have set to $16000 (or $32000 for Scenario modes). Players use money to buy various weapons and equipment. Players receive money for completing rounds, with more money awarded for winning a round. Players may often be forced to pick a different weapon selection than they prefer due to monetary limitations. When looking at a player's saved loadouts on the buy menu, any loadout that cannot be fully-purchased with the player's current cash reserve will be slightly grayed-out, as will specific weapons and items in the categories of equipment.

Money in all of the Counter-Strike series uses the dollar symbol
