Every time you upgrade your coin, you can redeem a Souvenir Package of the match of your choice. Souvenirs will feature one of the MVPs from that match, so watch the Major and make your choice!
Want more? Purchase the ‘Viewer Pass +3’ to start off with three Souvenir Tokens, or purchase as many Souvenir Tokens as you’d like once you’ve activated your Pass.
Team and Player Stickers
Team stickers and player autographs are also now available for purchase. Team capsules feature holo and foil stickers, while player capsules feature paper, foil, and gold stickers.
Today’s update is all about maps, with significant changes to Vertigo, and an update to the map pool!
We’re welcoming two maps to the pool: Breach, a defusal map set in a spacious corporate building, and Seaside, an old community favorite. They’ll be replacing Workout, which has been removed from official matchmaking.
Ready to try out these new maps? In addition to Deathmatch and Casual game modes, Breach and Seaside (as well as Ruby) are now available as Scrimmage maps on the Competitive tab.
When you play a Scrimmage map all of the competitive rules are the same, but there are no restrictions on players in your party, and your Skill Group will not be adjusted or displayed after your match.
So jump into a scrimmage, and try out something new!
The time has come for you to put your Danger Zone skills on display–Danger Zone now has skill groups!
Your skill group will be visible in the main menu and as a spectator after your match has concluded. Your skill group is a mark of your recent performance, and players of all skill groups can participate in matches together.
Ready to rise through the ranks? You’ll need to go on a hot streak if you want to get to the top!
Twenty years ago, a humble Half-Life mod changed the gaming world. Constantly evolving and shifting over the years, Counter-Strike has never lost its fundamentals: it’s easy to learn, takes a lifetime to master, and is supported by a massive global community.
You can celebrate the history of CS with a retro version of Dust II, currently available in the Casual Dust II map group. There’s also a new sticker capsule featuring the unsung heroes of CS – chickens!
