Panic Room (zs_panic) is the final chapter of Zombie Scenario: Season 3 in Counter-Strike Online.


Defeat the person behind the incident in panic room and rescue Erika.

Official Description[]

AFC troops who were in a danger as they fell into Norman's trap has made a successful defense. However, Erika has been kidnapped by the AMP Suit sent by Norman. David Black took the lift heading to the Panic Room as he wanted to rescue Erika and take revenge on Norman although he did not realize the real intention from Norman. Panic Room was the safest place in the Vanguard Lab but it has become the worst battlefield to AFC troops...


  1. Black reconnects with Erica, who was lost on the way to the panic room, and Erica mentions that Norman is already infected and that his condition is getting weirder.
  2. Black hurriedly heads to the panic room, but an infected armsuit appears along the way and fights. Then, suddenly, the floor collapses under the attack of a large organism.
  3. A huge infestation appeared and stopped them , and that was the Norman, completely infected and fused with the Panic Room defenses.
  4. In the end, Black and his crew defeat Norman, who has become a huge infection, and enter the panic room to rescue Erica and escape.
  5. The incident reported the de facto collapse of the Vanguard Company, and David Black returned to the AFC with some unresolved questions.
  6. CF. The Lost Guardian is a gigantic organism in which an infected Norman is fused with the Panic Room defense system. The system will not freeze unless it fuses with the fixed defense system and destroys the core at the center. The huge tentacles are being regenerated by the virus indefinitely, so it's best to destroy the armor and missile turrets first so that you can quickly defeat the core.
  7. CF. When the Lost Guardian is defeated, the Panic Room also collapses. In the end, Norman's greed resulted in the destruction of the Vanguard Company and himself, and the question of why Norman kidnapped Erica remained unresolved.


Panic Room depicts a new mutated boss from Vanguard lab. Surviving from the Threat chapter where Erika is captured by the AMP Suit, David Black team is pursuing the AMP Suit sent by Norman and finally engaged by a new tentacle boss, Kraken. The players must defeat the tentacles first before the true one eye boss appears.

  • Distribute the strongest weapon you have to your teammates.
  • Periodically, the Venom Guards would swarm players and their deaths deal massive damage as well as send players flying. It's best to not shoot them at close range.
  • At 3rd phase, shoot the tentacles while waiting for the Core to open. When it's the time to plant the C4 on the top, use that time to damage the Core as much as you can.



  • The boss closely resemble Hypersuctor Sensitiva from Half-Life.
  • Most parts of this map resemble Blast Pit chapter from Half-Life.

  • This is the only map where both stage and boss BGMs are not played.
  • The poster shows a sneak peek of SKULL-8 and SKULL-6.
  • This is the second Zombie Scenario map that consists only 1 round after Threat.
    • Panic Room is also the only map with three boss phases in a single round.
  • The majority of the zombies spawned in the boss fight are Venom Guards.
  • Musics in this map were taken from Building Recon, Motorcade Assault and Rise Hard missions from Counter-Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scene.
  • This map was released in Singapore/Malaysia nearly one year after the first release in South Korea.
  • This is the first map where the C4 can be used against the boss before Conspiracy.

  • There is a bug in the third phase of Kraken where sometimes, it will neither move and open its core to attack players, except the tentacles. Players still can attack it, however its health bar will not decrease. This bug can be fixed if using Round Retry.
