In today’s patch, Valve added a new music kit while data miners on Reddit have already cracked the list of the next four weeks of Shattered Web missions.
Valve added a brand new music kit to CSGO this morning by the British rapper Scarlxrd famous for combining traditional trap music with heavy metal. Here’s a look at his latest track, DISSXLUTIXN, released yesterday.
The new music kit is available right now in the in-game store. The kit costs $4.99 for the standard version, while the StatTrak version will run players $7.99.
The kit is a great departure from the usual music kit fare which often focuses on genres other than rap, adding further diversity to fans’ options when customizing their CSGO experience.
CSGO developers also changed the 3rd Commando Company Agent’s voice-over and image, as well as his model on the rewards page. His actual in-game model hasn’t changed.
If players want to be surprised by the missions over the next 4 weeks, spoilers lie ahead.
Week 5’s missions, collectively called Field Trip, are set to start at 5:00 PM EST Tuesday, December 17.
The craziest missions in the next four weeks are Week 5’s “Feed the Birds,” and Week 6’s
“Long Term Profits.” “Feed the Birds” has players having a chicken follow them for a total of 180 seconds, while Long Term Profits requires that players earn $100,000 in Casual’s Defusal Group Delta.
The other missions are the standard fair, such as “Take the Long Way Home,” which requires players to get 50 kills in Casual’s Defusal Group Sigma. It also looks like there are several missions that don’t specify using a certain weapon to complete the challenge.
Valve may choose to change this is in the future, but for right now the next five weeks of missions seem so simple that the only thing players could complain about is that they’re too easy. Still looking at you, “Punching Out.”
Valve also changed the name of Week 5 from its original “Just Do Whatever” to “Field Trip,” a possible reference to the fact that the Week 5 missions have players doing a ton of different things in almost every mode in CSGO.
Players should get ready to protect those chickens. They shouldn’t forget what they did to ropz that one time, either, so be sure to keep an eye on them.
