The second month of 2018 saw quite a few exciting events happen in the worlds of CS:GO. Did you see them?
In any case, it would be interesting to have a look at a summary of what happened in February.
Interesting changes to the game
Game updates are very exciting – they bring new spirits to our virtual adventures, make us develop our skills in a slightly different way, to adjust our regular in-game activity. Knowing the most significant aspects of game updates is one aspect of staying at the highest level of gaming mastery.
New items in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and remastered Nuke
Have you ever played on Nuke? This is rather a small map, where events circle around a nuclear station: terrorists are eager to plant a bomb, and the other party tries to stop them. Even if you`ve played in this location before, you’ll be surprised to find it in a remastered state – on February 14, Valve presented a new edition of this iconic map. Many virtual items have been adjusted, and players should renew their tactics to succeed on this map.
Another February update of CS:GO brought new skins, and you know why some gamers are so excited at this news – this means potentially more money from selling items on Skins.Cash.
So, in a new CS:GO Clutch Case, we’ve got 17 new skins for virtual weapons and 24 new glove styles for game characters. Also, this update contains slight changes to other aspects of the shooter.
