Posted: Apr 18, 2017 Written by: do_0h

As per usual, the guys behind the Counter-Strike:Global Offensive game, VALVe has announced holiday changes.

With the Easter already passed, the guys behind CS:GO announced yet another update.

The new update unlike the others DO NOT FEATURE new skins (*wow).

The complete log of the update:


  • 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.


  • Added Team ID option “Always On w/Equipment" to Game Settings
  • 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.
