Post thumbnail


  • Added Holiday Cheer.


  • For a limited time, the Negev and R8 Revolver are available in Competitive Matchmaking;
  • R8 Revolver: Price reduced to 700;
  • Negev: Price reduced to 2000 as a starting point, to promote experimentation with the weapon;


  • Volume now decays smoothly over distance, instead of by discrete steps.
  • Adjusted HRTF audio mix to more closely match sound quality without HRTF.
  • Added snd_hrtf_distance_behind (default 100), which allows HRTF to more closely match the perceived direction of a sound source as seen by the actual player behind a monitor.
  • Fixed a bug where music volume would be set to the maximum level while accepting a lobby invitation.


  • Added support for official game servers in Guangzhou and Shanghai for the Perfect World CS:GO Beta.


  • Spectators can now use overhead equipment display.
  • Fixed overhead equipment display not updating in some cases.
  • Fixed orientation of stickers on dropped weapons.
  • Adding Game State Integration output for use by tournament organizers. New output for player equipment value (with log_level 3), showing the observer slot for each player and adding a new ‘PhaseCountdowns’ feed for timing the end of warmup/freezetime/round ends.

 Player of team HellRaisers  Vladyslav «bondik» Nechyporchuk:

«I won't be using the Negev for 2000 personally, since it's better to buy a UMP-45 which costs less, more mobile and gives you more money per kill. I didn't use the R8 Revolver before and I'm not going to use it now, because there is the Desert Eagle which is a lot better than this device».
