The Osama bin Laden operation in Abbottabad has prompted some adventurous gamers to replicate the Al Qaeda leader’s compound as a new mission map for the popular first-person shooter video game, Counter Strike.

The map allows gamers to play the role of either counter-terrorists or terrorists in a re-enactment of the actual Bin Laden operation.

Gamers can play the map in both single player, as well as multi-player mode.

According to review site bitthirsty.com:

The map looks to be accurate and ideal for bomb or hostage based missions. So until you can get your hands on that live feed of the operation, you can satisfy your dark curiosity by firing up Counter Strike: Source and doing some extra-judicial “exploring” of your own.

The development of the new map was possible due to the highly customizable nature of the game which allows users to install or even create their own custom skins, HUDs, sprites, and sound effects.

The Osama bin Laden compound mod is available now via user “Fletch” on GameBanna.com as a 1MB download.

    How is it possible, OBL and his companions were without arms. There was a strike but no counter strike. Recommend
