The German Union Police’s Counter Terrorist Force. This Special Force was established after the humiliating blunder of the German police in the 1972 Olympics known as the “Munich Massacre.” From this tragedy, the Germans realized that a counter terrorists force was needed to safe guard the public. The Grenzschutzgruppe 9 or Border Guard Group 9 (GSG9) was established in April 16, 1973 with Ulrich Wegener as its leader. Driven to save their country’s face, the GSG9 has thwarted several terrorist operations including the 1977 “Operation Fire Magic” which was considered one of the most difficult hostage situation a Special Force could face. Also, the GSG9 swept the SWAT World Challenge in 2005 where they won all the events.

- After two years of Black-Market, GSG9 is finally available in shop in CF Vietnam, making him the third character available in Item Shop in CF Vietnam, after N-22 and ULP. It cost 79 vcoin to own GSG9 permanently, the same price with N-22.
- In CF Vietnam, there are two errors concerning GSG9 character. First, their item-name is misspelled as "G9", and second, HUD image of BL side is reused from SWAT character, down to the tattoo and black gloves. Players have been complaining endlessly but VTC still didn't fix the errors nor give out any official explanation. Small talks claim that since the character is put in shop, VTC won't bother fixing errors because they won't get more money like the one in Black Market.

- GSG9's BL side is equipped with an unusable smoke helmet.
