Like Guns In Your Game? CS: GO Has A Mode For That

Most definitely a game involving guns.

Gun Game, which my brain has decided now needs to be sung along to the Duck Tales theme tune, is crouch-walking into the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive beta. On Friday, Valve added the first Arsenal: Demolition map de_lake, a game mode that reverses the ever-increasing returns of the original GG. When you start the match, you’re given a rifle: if you get a kill with it that round, the next round you’ll receive a weaker weapon. After five rounds CTs and Terrorists swap over. It includes the traditional Terrorist/Counter Terrorists defusal dance, and for every additional kill you’ll receive more equipment in the next round. It’s like someone’s accidentally tumble-dried Counter-Strike and it’s come out all dizzy and tried to explain its own mechanics. I can’t wait for Talk Game, where you attempt to negotiate demands: I did just attempt to negotiate a doughnut drop for me and my fellow Ts, but the response was rather anatomical and descriptive. While I call my mother to make sure he didn’t follow through, here’s a video showing it all in action.
CS: GO is a game with guns, so they’ve added gun game to the gun game. It’s like Xzibit wrote Inception. CS: GO is still in beta, but they’re continually adding players. If you already have it, quick-match will take you right to the lake.

The traditional variation of Gun Game, where you scale up your weaponry for kills, will be arriving at a later date. They’ve renamed it ‘Arsenal: Arms Race’, game mode renaming fact fans.
