CS:GO Update 21/8/2013 - 5 Year Veteran Coin

CS:GO 5 Year Veteran Coin

Another large update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has been released today, it includes a large amount of changes in terms of map fixes and balances, UI changes and additions, an SSG08 price reducton, molotov price reduction, incendiary grenade price reduction and glock damage reduction.

Another neat feature added to celebrate CS:GO turning 1 year old is the "Five Year Veteran Coin" which is awarded to players who were a member of the Counter-Strike community for over 5 years. If you don't get the coin, fear not as once your account hits the 5 year mark you join the club! Full article at the Counter-Strike.net blog.

It is great to see Counter-Strike: Global Offensive gaining some attention from the Valve devs to see this game become the definitive Counter-Strike.

Full update notes below:
