Galil AR

Galil AR

The official Galil AR Description states:

A less expensive option among the terrorist-exclusive assault rifles, the Galil AR is a serviceable weapon in medium to long-range combat.




The Galil AR is a Terrorist rifle that has replaced the IDF Defender in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

The Galil AR is an Israeli assault rifle manufactured by Israel Weapon Industries, or better known by its initials, IWI. Although the rifle has been around since 1972, the in-game depiction is modeled after the Galil ACE, specifically the ACE 22, an improved variant produced since 2008.

In game, the Galil costs $2000 and has high recoil while firing full-auto. This weapon fires 5.56 NATO rounds and holds 35 rounds in its magazine.




In the alpha version of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the Galil AR had a gun sight attachment on the rifle’s handguard. It was able to zoom in like the AUG and the SG 553. This attachment was later removed to balance out with its CT counterpart, the FAMAS.

In the early stages of development, the bolt-pull sounds were not properly synced with the animations.

Similar to the G3SG1 from older games, if a person views the reload sequence of the Galil AR from the “classic” view model position, the magazine appears to be taken out and simply placed back into the rifle.

The CS GO rifle is based on the Galil ACE 22, the short barrel version of the IWI Galil ACE series, but uses the name of the Galil AR.
