In the game CounterStrike:Source, the term para may refer to either
a) The M249 Machine Gun, also known as "Para," this gun is fantastic for support fire but pretty useless over long range, or-
b) With allusion to parachuting or paratrooping; the act of jumping in front of an opponent then showering him with bullets as you descend. Usually a desperate last resort tactic used when surprised or sprung, but can be used as an offence on some occasions, for example during a seige - "para" can be used to surprise and deter enemy frontmen, allowing your team to advance. In this instance you are essentially a kamikaze and are sacrificing yourself for the good of your team. Best guns for "para" are p90, mac10, mp5 and of course the eponymous m249 para.
1: Dude, para sucks, you got me with a mac10.
(Player breaks seige on base by performing "para" with mac10, headshotting 2 players then dying. His team finishes off the assailants.)
Player: hell yeah, PARA!!
Player2: lol yeah nice para
Player3: fuk off noob
