It’s time to upgrade

  • A reference to the Zoo map, which was pulled from the competitive platform shortly after it was released in 2019.
  • References to cases and case keys – but no one really thought they could get rid of them with the CSGO Source 2 update.
  • A reference to “StickerKit” which some users believe allows players to remove and edit in-game stickers.
  • Likewise, references were found describing “PaintKit” and “SprayKit” devices, which may serve a similar purpose.
  • A reference to ‘UnusualLoot’ which is hard to define. In Team Fortress 2, ‘Unusual Loot’ refers to the rarest, sometimes strangest cosmetic items.
