We did it, Thanks to you
Awesome first week everyone! We're throwing a party to celebrate such a successful comeback of our community. Expect admins to host exciting events later this week. First, let's talk about updates: Every so often we add something new, but this time we have two to three months left of CS:GO, so it's time to pull out all the stops. Today we bring you weapon holstering, ammunition items, a new Drug Dealer plant, and more.
I believe this update to be one of the most significant and impactful in the history of our community.
This community is about pioneering and innovating new gameplay features. To celebrate an amazing launch week, weapon holstering has been added after over eight years of development. This is huge; we have been asking for this for years!
There are two requirements to holster: You must have bought the weapon and it needs full ammo in both the magazine and reserve. Press SHIFT (walk) + R (reload) + RIGHT CLICK (attack2) to holster your weapon.
No longer will you need to scramble around for ammo, as it can now be easily purchased from the vendor in the gun store. There are eight ammo items for each respective group of weapons. It's our goal to encourage more strategic gameplay, so hopefully this brings us one more step forward.
It was a creative decision to stay lore-friendly to the existing ammunition names for Counter-Strike. Since these names may be confusing, here is a quick guide for each ammo type and its weapons:
- 9mm Parabellum - Glock-18, Dual Berettas, Tec-9, MP9, MP7, PP-Bizon CZ75-Auto, MP5-SD, P2000
- 5.56x45mm NATO - M4A1, M4A1-S, SG 553, FAMAS, AUG, M249, Negev, Galil AR
- 7.62x51mm NATO - AK-47, SSG 08, G3SG/1, SCAR-20
- 12 gauge Buckshot - XM1014, MAG-7, Nova, Sawed-Off
- .45 ACP - USP-S, MAC-10, UMP45
- .357 SIG - P250
- 5.7×28mm - Five-SeveN, P90
- .50 Action Express - Desert Eagle, R8 Revolver
- .338 Lapua Magnum - AWP. This item will not be for sale.
So what are you waiting for? Add ammunition to your inventory and see the difference it makes!
Drug Dealers are getting a new toy to play with. Introducing the weed plant.
Unlike its cactus brethren, weed will change its model to several growth stages until it's completely matured, serving as a visual cue when they are ready to fully harvest. Drug Dealers can plant six of these at a time, but also grow cacti alongside them. You are still limited to only six drug plants at a time.
This new plant can be found in Zombie vendors. Similar to cactus plants, weed costs $500 to plant, grows to 300 grams each, but sells for more money in exchange for a higher risk from doing more trips. Type /weed to start growing. Weed will remain available for the rest of CS:GO's lifetime.
To help cops out, we've made significant improvements to the experience. There is now a Buy Zone in the police department's medical room, allowing for arsenal upgrades when needed. If you're a returning cop, you might notice some weaponry changes to a couple of ranks.
Most importantly, if a player has 6 or more MRDM kills, they will be marked as red when cuffed. Leave these players in jail. Jail-unjailing these cuffs may result in a penalty.
New Requirements for Cops
If you want this server to stay alive, it's imperative new players get help so that they aren't running around confused and leave. We're making this a requirement for all new cops going forward. If you don't at least attempt teaching them, you are at risk of losing cop. Try to focus on the basics, don't information overload them. Don't forget to let them know that cuff-uncuffing is to their benefit!
Shoutout to all the cops, mods, and admins who have helped out new players. Get a new player to stay and there could be a considerate reward in the future.
