Today we are removing two weapons from Competitive Matchmaking (the R8 Revolver and the Negev) as we make significant changes to them, and we are shipping some new features to help you build your social network as you play CS:GO.
For you Five Year Veteran Coin holders, there’s also an opportunity to preorder a physical coin to add to your collection.
We’re making changes to the R8 Revolver and the Negev, and for the time being those weapons will not be available in Competitive Matchmaking. Now players can have fun with them in the game without impacting competitive play.
R8 Revolver – The firing delay on the Revolver has been significantly reduced, but otherwise the weapon has the same high-powered shot with great mobility.
Negev – The Negev has received a more significant rework, receiving traits that promote suppressing the enemy. Wild at first, the Negev’s shots settle over time into a deadly controllable beam.
