Last week, the development team did just that, reducing the gun's mag size from 25 rounds to 20. However, some fans think the nerf hasn't gone far enough. And that's because, despite reducing the gun's mag capacity, it's not really changed the meta all too much. The assault rifle is still devastating in the right hands. Sure, you've got less bullets to play around with, but for top level players in the CS:GO ranks and on the world stage, this nerf has done very little to shake things up. To counter that fact, many are now calling for the gun to be reduced in price. "Change the price of the M4A1-S and the M4A4," Jacob 'pimp' Winneche tweets. "The better weapon is still the cheapest option, hence why the vast majority won't switch. I love CS:GO is addressing it, and I'm sure since they've taken an interest will gather feedback and adjust accordingly." Read the rest of the story...

CS:GO Source 2 update arriving in August, suggests TheWarOwlJun 24, 2022 - The Loadout24/6/2022 TheWarOwl has since said on a recent stream that he was joking. FPS fans will know that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's 10-year anniversary is right around the corner on August 21, but so far all players have had to commemorate the event is the CSGO10 sticker event in-game. However, it appears that Valve might have a little surprise in store for the anniversary that will make the game look a whole lot prettier if rumours and a leak prove true. CS:GO has infamously run on the original Source's code since its 2012 release, but rumours and speculation have only increased as the 10th anniversary draws closer. Now, CS:GO YouTuber and streamer 'TheWarOwl' seems to have slipped up mid-stream and leaked that the competitive shooter is being ported to Source 2. "I'm honestly waiting for the Source update in August," TheWarOwl says in the video clip. "Oh, I shouldn't have said that." He could be dead-pan joking of course, but it should be noted that TheWarOwl was a software developer long before his YouTube career talking about CS:GO kicked off, so it would make sense if he knew what was going on behind the scenes.

New CS:GO update nerfs the M4A1-S and shakes up AncientJun 16, 2022 - The LoadoutA new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive update has landed, and it includes some significant tweaks to the FPS game's maps and a nerf to one of the game's best guns. The June 15 CS:GO update released by Valve is far from the biggest we've ever seen, but for some players it'll have a significant impact. Heading up the CS:GO patch notes for this update is a nerf to the M4A1-S. The assault rifle will see its magazine size shrink from 25 to 20 bullets, reverting an ammo capacity buff the weapon received a few years ago. This nerf is necessary because the M4A1-S has been rather strong over the last few months, thanks to a damage buff it received last year at the start of Operation Riptide. While the weapon's desirable damage output remains, there is now the drawback of having fewer bullets at your disposal, which might put some players off. Those who are accurate and economical with their shooting, however, will probably still find the gun viable. Read the rest of the story...

But, after a whirlwind 18 months, the Dane has finally cemented his - and FaZe's name - into the history books with a win at the PGL Antwerp Major 2022. This now officially makes him the oldest player in CS:GO to ever win a Major. That title was previously held by Daniil 'Zeus' Teslenko, who, at the age of 29, took the PGL Major Krakow 2017 by storm with his team Gambit. karrigan, however, now holds that title at the grand old age of 32 - and it's been a long time coming. Karrigan was, of course, part of the ill-fated FaZe Clan team which blew a 15-9 lead on Inferno at the ELEAGUE Boston Major finals in 2018 against Cloud9. Many at the time believed karrigan's chance to ever win a Major was over. However, the IGL never gave up and Antwerp proved to be the final stage - something he's been working towards for years.

The CS:GO hotfix was released on May 15, and the patch notes simply read "Fixed a recently reported smoke bug." The cause for such a prompt hotfix can be found in a short video clip that shows m0NESY rushing to the mid window position as a CT. He's smoked off by the opposing team - a commonplace tactic - but he then surprisingly pulls out a smoke grenade of his own, uses an underhand throw, and glitches it in the wall near the window. As the smoke pops, it leaves a small gap, from which m0NESY then takes out two Imperial team members who strafe out mid, thinking they are obscured from vision. The video uses spectator view to show the view from the Terrorist side, and from their point of view, the window is fully smoked out. Read the rest of the story...

Even the cheapest CS:GO knives will set you back a fair amount - but what if there was a way to try out even the most expensive knife types for free? Luckily, CS:GO has a rather expansive custom games system which allows you to birth game modes so wildly different from the main game, like CS:GO surf - so trying out a few knives isn't that hard to figure out. Unfortunately you won't be able to keep any of the knives, nor bring them over to matchmaking to show off to all your friends, but it is an excellent way of trialling knife types before you decide to make that commitment and purchase one for real.

Unlike most other in-game cosmetic systems though, Valve has opted for a community-controlled ecosystem where the players themselves set the prices. This has led to a lot of good opportunities for players to snag some comparatively well priced items, for example, a couple of the cheapest CS:GO knives that won't put such a big dent into your wallet. However, the downside to this freedom is that skins have the potential for an 'unlimited' price tag - with the most expensive CS:GO skins soaring into the thousands of pounds and dollars. You either have to have a mountain of cash, or be lucky enough to find one in one of the many CS:GO cases available. Only the best CS:GO skins - or perhaps the rarest - deserve to be at the top of the list of most expensive CS:GO skins however, so if you're looking for the ultimate flex and have the cash ready to prove it, then look no further than our guide on the most expensive CS:GO skins below.
