8/13 – The Arms Deal Update
14 Aug 2013 -
"Introducing theArms Deal update, which lets you experience all the illicit thrills of black market weapons trafficking without any of the hanging around in darkened warehouses getting knifed to death. The Arms Deal Update lets you collect, buy, sell and trade over 100 all-new decorated weapons that you can equip in-game.
You can start collecting decorated weapons via timed weapon drops just by playing CS:GO on official and community servers. You can also get them by opening dropped weapon cases with the appropriate key, or by trading with other players through Steam’s Trading interface. Additionally, any decorated weapons you’ve found, bought or traded can be sold on the Steam Marketplace.
We also want The Arms Deal Update to give back to the community, which is why we’re happy to announce the eSports Weapon Case. A portion of the proceeds from sales of eSports Case Keys will go towards prize purses at CS:GO community competitive events.
Last but not least, as part of the Arms Deal Update, we’ve added two new stock weapons available to everyone, the M4A1-S and USP-S."

Not sure what to make of this... On the one hand I have no problems with cosmetic items in the game, they don't degrade my experience in any way. However having looked at the available skins I've got to say they've gone a little overboard with the designs.

All are aethethics except for the ability to now have silence weapons again for the M4 and such.
But they are stock weapons.

Don't see the problem with micro-transactions like this.
Purely aesthetic and some of the proceeds go to the community itself.

That's pretty cool but,
Less expensive but with a smaller magazine than their unsilenced counterparts, both weapons have detachable silencers that make them quieter and suppress tracer fire while providing less recoil and better accuracy.

I got a jungle five-seven and opened up some skulls MP7.
sold them both, because these skins will get much cheaper later

I really REALLY love the M4A1-S and the USP-S. BUT; the reserve ammo is currently glitched. Instead of having 20-90 and 12-54, its bugged at 20-40 and 12-24. There's alot of other bugs in this patch like the developer console causing the client to crash.

EDIT: A hotfix has been deployed; the bug was actually on the buy menu instead of in-game. The ammo now says 2-40 on the buy menu. Game runs better now since before the hotfix it ran like shit for everyone.
