Arms Deal Update (Click to show)
Q: What is the Arms Deal update and what does it do?

A: The "Arms Deal" update was released on 08/14/2013 and it added two new guns to the game, the "M4A1-S" and the "USP-S", these two weapons will replace the "M4A4" and the "P2000" for those that choose/prefer to use them.

Q: That's one major part of the update, so what about these "drops" everyone is talking about and these "skins", is the game going "Free 2 Play" ?

A: Well, there is no need to worry, the game isn't going Free 2 Play, but the skin drops are real. At the end of each game, skins/cases are dropped to random people, although a drop does not have to occur every game. These drops can happen in every game mode or any community server that is VAC enabled, we have figured out up to 4 drops can be given per week to a player. We also know for each drop we get we are most likely to get another drop the next game or so, until our 4 drops have been used.

The Arms Deal update also allows players to:
  • Buy and sell skins on the Marketplace.
  • Trade skins through the Steam trading system.

Q: How do I find a weapons case?
A: Cases are dropped just like weapons at the end of every match. Some cases pertain to certain Operations and can only be dropped to those who have purchased a pass (see "Operations, Coins, and Trophies").

Q: What cases do I have a possibility of getting a knife from?
A: You have a possibility of getting a knife with any case, however, the huntsman case will only give you a huntsman knife, and the breakout case will only give you the butterfly knife

Q: How do I obtain one of these keyless capsules or cases?
A: There are a few different ways actually, one of the easiest but most costly method would be to purchase them straight from the community market. The other way that will cost you next to nothing would be to link your twitch.tv account to your steam account, and watch matches from the community funded tournaments. You can watch on either twitch.tv or GOTV which is in game. It doesn't matter where you watch, you will still have the same opportunity to get a case drop. As for the keyless sticker capsules, you can buy them all throughout the time of the tournament, which is usually around a week and a half.
Music Kits and In-Game offers (Click to show)
Music Kits:


Q: What are Music Kits?

A: Music Kits are in-game items that allow you to change the music for the game. Sounds/music that play when you die, win the round, and more. There are a variety of artists to choose from and they cost $6.99 each or $2.49 when on sale for 65% off. You can only purchase these through the Community Market or In-game offers.

Q: What are In-Game offers?

A: Much like weapon skins and cases that drop after a game, the in-game offers appear on the main menu screen next to your CSGO Profile. Your offers will last anywhere from three days to a week and will contain a mix of stickers and music kits. The In-Game offer portion of the main menu looks like this:



And when you click on "View Your Offers"

Exterior, Quality, Rare Items, and Stattrak (Click to show)
First of all you can find every weapon finish in the arms deal update here: http://kniferound.net/wiki/Weapon_Finishes

What are Qualities of Items?
As we know some skins are always going to be worth more than others, we can determine this by the color of an item in order the are:

1 - White (Common) - Consumer grade
2 - Light blue (Uncommon) - Industrial grade
3 - Dark blue (Rare) - Mil-spec
4 - Purple (Mythical) - Restricted
5 - Pink (Legendary) - Classified
6 - Orange (Ancient) - Covert
7 - Yellow (Unorthodox) - Contraband - Discontinued Items
7 - ★Exceedingly Rare Items★ - Always with a star - Still Red like Covert

Keep in mind that a higher color grade does not always mean the item is going to be worth more than a lower grade color.
For example: P90 Cold Blooded on the market is typically sold around $2-$4 and this is a Pink (Classified) skin, while an AK-47 Black Laminate is sold for around $8-12, and this is a dark blue (Mil-spec) skin.

Weapon Finish Qualities
Additionally each weapon finish has 5 qualities to it as follows from worst to best:
1 - Battle-Scarred
2 - Well-Worn
3 - Field-Tested
4 - Minimal Wear
5 - Factory New

So which rare items can I receive from a drop?
Anything that is not mentioned in a case and is from White to Pink in color can be received from a drop, so to clarify anything above Pink rarity cannot be found in a drop and anything mentioned in a case cannot be found from a drop although you can still trade/buy them on the marketplace.

What is Stattrak?
Stattrak weapons are a collection of weapons that count your kills, as seen so far stattrak can only be found in purple and orange loots. Stattrak items can be on any weapon and any skin from a case.

Can Stattrak Items be dropped?
No, Stattrak items cannot be found from a drop, they can only be unboxed from a case.



★Exceedingly Rare Items★
Exceedingly Rare Items are always found with a star and so far only come in knives. They can be found with a stattrak equipped and can be found with different exterior qualities and different weapon exteriors in general sometimes with none at all. See "Knives" for more info and examples.
Knives (Click to show)
Q: What type of finishes do knives have?
A: Quite a few. Here's the full list of the finishes:
★Blue Steel
★Boreal Forest
★Case Hardened
★Crimson Web
★Fade
★Forest DDPAT
★Night
★Safari Mesh
★Scorched
★Slaughter
★Stained
★Urban Masked
★Rust Coat
★Damascus Steel
★Doppler
★Marble Fade
★Tiger Tooth
★Ultraviolet

Q: Why are knives so expensive?
A: The community sees them that way because for the most part, it's considered very rare to actually get one from a case, you could end up spending hundreds of dollars on keys to try your luck and you may never actually get one. Some very lucky people have managed to spend $10 or less on keys and ended up getting one right from the start. If you wanna try your luck, you can always open cases, but buying one directly from the market or from CSGO lounge is the best way to guarantee yourself a knife. (PLEASE when dealing with people on CSGO Lounge be wary of scammers!)

CS: GO stands as a glowing reminder that quality game design is rewarded in longevity and variety. Valve has not only updated the shooter but has completely outclassed its contemporaries. This is Counter-Strike, whatever the format you choose to play it on, and there isn't a higher recommendation than that.

CSGO is a near-perfect multiplayer shooter. Unlike the previous versions, which were often difficult to get in to, this one offers a variety of modes that will appeal to all skill levels. It has a large community and a well supported workshop, ensuring that this discount-priced game will be around for years to come.

In short, you either play as the good or bad guys and must either kill the other team or complete objectives to win the round, which will earn you more money to do the same thing again but faster. It's been around for years and has spawned many imitators.

The game isn't much of a looker as it is based on the same engine as the original Half Life 2 was. However, Valve have polished it as much as they can and the community consists of lots of awesome mappers who have been churning out brilliantly imaginative and beautiful maps almost on a daily basis.

Is it worth getting if you already own Counter Strike: Source? Yes. CSS was always Counter Strike shoe-horned into the Source engine. CSGO feels far more like a standalone game. Valve have very carefully listened to what people have wanted and have made a very appealing game. The best feature must be the competitive play, where you play 10 games that you cannot leave (unless you want to tarnish your reputation), after which you'll be ranked and will be paired up with people of the same skill, meaning that the game is challenging but fair no matter what skill level you are.

There are all kinds of teams and communities that you can join. Really, if I was stuck on a desert island with one game this would most likely be my top choice. It's bigger than you can hope to conquer and has a huge community around it which will likely be around for years to come, something that can't be said for the Call of Duty franchise which is probably its closest rival. Remember that those games are full price and have another one churned out each year, fragmenting the community. Plus you can customise your weapon skins in CSGO. Surely that's the most important feature?! All they need to add now are hats and you might as well live in CSGO.

A real successor of good old CS. Its new matchmaking system allows you to play with people of nearly same skill as yours plus now you don't have to spend time trying to find good servers.

I'm actually not even one bit excited for this game. I've been playing CS since 1.5 and think that CS 1.6 will remain the G.O.A.T. The other remakes like source and cz were failures in my opinion. Remember everyone was talking about CS: Promod? It was supposed to be the future of CS but that failed as well. If this happens to come out, becomes successful, and all of my friends like it and start playing then I might get it but until then I won't be holding my breath.

The game looked very good today on the IEM game EU vs US. The only thing I have is the auto snipers need nerfing but that is going to be taken care of. I really like the molotov bombs and how they were used both offensively and defensively. I will definitely be giving it a try and expect CS to make a huge comeback in the next few months!!
post #5 of 22618
CS is the greatest online FPS game in my opinion but source was really lacking. I hope they learned a lot from that experience, and do 1.6 (and prev games) justice.

Cross platform may not be in the final game. Chet Faliszek talks about it actually in the IEM interview. He doesn't want cross platform from hindering the game like frequent patch updates.

CS: Promod just doesn't have enough developers to build it at a quicker pace. Latest build is actually really good.

I'm actually pretty excited for this game. CSS with build in 5v5 matchmaking and elo rating, better graphics, new gameplay mechanics (molotov), and smaller 1.6 styled hitboxes and recoil makes this a pre order for me. CS is the most skill driven team based fps out there in my opinion .

Looks alright from the USA vs Europe showmatch I saw. Of course, still a lot of work to do!

There are a lot of 1.6 and Source players that won't give this a chance and bash it before they even get their hands on it. I guess they're afraid of new things and how it will change the game they love.

That said I'm looking forward to the beta, this is probably the only FPS that has a chance of becoming a big e-sport in the near future (There's still CS 1.6, CS Source and Quake but those aren't growing anymore and can't compete with games like SC2 and LoL).

CSPromod is looking great recently, especially the past two updates. Unfortunately, I think they're too many years late to get it to lift off. Not to mention that people probably don't want to give it a chance anymore since it started off horribly.

I reckon Valve won't mess this up.
