The Vanguards

The Vanguard Company is the main antagonist in Human Scenario mode introduced in Counter-Strike Online.


It is a company emerging after the Siege Types have been released in Chaos chapter. They are issued to take the samples of Siege Types from the rescue team to the Vanguard Lab for a research. However, they are engaged by the government force under the request of Commander Victor. They managed to take the sample by force and retreat.

In Zombie Scenario: Season 3, the Vanguard Lab is in chaos after the research on the Siege Type samples went wrong and caused an outbreak of the zombie virus. Some of them managed to escape via air support while the other remaining must proceed to the Panic Room to evacuate. However, it was a nightmare when they arrived, since the lab's defense system was also infected with the zombie virus.

The Vanguard Lab is in destruction after the zombie virus outbreak, and the status of Vanguard Company personnel is currently unknown.

The Vanguard Company is one of the world's most ill-fated munitions companies. The industry orthodoxy is that there is a parent company controlling the back because little is known about its financial strength compared to its size . It is also an unknown company that does not hesitate to act against the government and sponsors terrorists.

They has strong survivability and firepower by reinforcing human limitations with high-tech technology. Upon completion of the project, it was revealed that Dr. Rex had left the Vanguard Company.
