First time in CS:GO

The first day of ESL Pro League concluded with not surprising results. However, there was one thing that would attract a lot of attention.

That was the first time Nikola "NiKo" Kovač from FaZe Clan would pick up an AUG. The rifler made a Tweet not long ago mentioning the rise of AUG.

Later in the event, in the Bo3 match against North, the rifler still felt comfortable with the gun.

This seems like good news for FaZe fans as their superstar has decided to drop his own ego and drift with the tide, picking up the overpowered rifle. Ever since the addition of Filip "NEO" Kubski as a dedicated IGL, FaZe has made significant improvement as a team. They seemed to work more like a squad, rather than a cluster of 5 people packed under a jersey.

What is more in the update?

The update also included some minor changes in CS:GO


  • Celebrate 20 years of Counter-Strike with a retro version of Dust II, currently available in the Casual Dust II map group.
  • The Chicken Capsule is now available for purchase in-game.


  • Fixed an exploit involving duplication of items dropped by disarming another player.
  • Players in warmup spawn closer to their teammate.
  • Players in warmup now spawn with a random pistol.
