Change Player/Weapon Skins in Counter strike

Hello friends, are you bored of your old skin of weapons and players, there's always a fun in trying new and different things.
So today i'm gonna tell how can you change player/weapon skin in Counter Strike 1.6

counter strike source skin pack


  • Download the Counter strike 1.6 weapon skin of your choice, must be a weapon in-game though.            Alternate link: Download from here

  • Open your cstrike folder( "C:\ProgramFiles\steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\cstrike\models" for CS 1.6 use).

  • Once the Skin is downloaded open the skin file.  There should be v_ w_ p_ types of the skin (if it is a gun skin). Drag the Skin file (name should be "v_gunname.mdl") to the models folder.

  • Once you have all of your skins dragged to your models folder, you may now open CS 1.6 and play with new skins.


  • Download the Counter-Strike 1.6 Player pack/skin of your choice (You can download from the same link).

  • Open your "C:\ProgramFiles\steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\cstrike\models\player" folder. If you do not have one, make it yourself. Inside this folder should be 8 folders. Each folder should have its own name, 4 for CT and 4 for T players. Names are:

               CT TEAM:                                     T TEAM:                   
sas arctic
gign guerilla
gsg9 leet
urban terror

  • Have the downloaded skin file opened. Then drag the player skin to the player folder it belongs to. If the file says "sas.mdl" drag it to the "sas" folder etc.

  • Once you have dragged all the player skins you have downloaded or are wanting, you may now open CS 1.6 and play away.
