I used to play Counter-Strike but switched to Ubuntu 17.04 and no longer have CS. I tried to install it using Wine but it didn't work properly, so I would like to find free alternatives.

The game should have different maps to play in as well as different game modes. It will have to be first-person, like the original game. The graphics need to be ok, but not to bad. There should be different kinds of guns, like snipers, rifles, shotguns and ETC.

  • @dsstorefile I have no updates for BionicBeaver (Otherwise known as 18.04), and i do not know how to update – YoureSOStubborn Apr 28 '18 at 10:03
  • @stedotmartin, no, and it doesn't fit my description as it is not anything like CS – YoureSOStubborn Apr 28 '18 at 10:05
  • What do you mean with "no longer have CS"? According to steam page it is available on linux... – muktupavels Apr 28 '18 at 10:07
  • I cannot get Steam to work for me – YoureSOStubborn Apr 28 '18 at 10:10

Counter strike is available for linux distributions through Steam. Try installing steam and download it from there, in case you've already bought it. A helpful link to install steam, could be worth checking out (https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/install-steam-start-gaming-linux/)

  • Is it free? If so I am having trouble installing Steam? – YoureSOStubborn Apr 28 '18 at 10:12
  • Counter strike has never been free - store.steampowered.com/app/730/CounterStrike_Global_Offensive - CS:GO, CS:SO and CS are all paid games. – Denny Apr 28 '18 at 10:13
  • I know that but i'd like to have a free alternative? – YoureSOStubborn Apr 28 '18 at 10:13
  • A free alternative, some game that could be like CS would be either fortnite or Playerunknowns battlegrounds. Those are the few I know about. Other than that, this is not a linux-related question and you should try google and do some research on your issue. EDIT: Not sure whether those games work on linux. Sorry. – Denny Apr 28 '18 at 10:15
  • I have Fortnite on PS4 and Fortnite is only for Windows or Mac, I haven't tried Playerunknowns BatlleGround. Thanks Anyways – YoureSOStubborn Apr 28 '18 at 10:16
