Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Update Adds Cosmetic Glove Skins

Move over knife skins.

Valve released an update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on Monday night, adding a new case of cosmetic weapon skins alongside a few map changes and bug fixes.

The Glove Case features 17 cosmetic weapon skins designed by the community and 24 new gloves, pictured above. The gloves are treated as a special item, and are rare to receive after opening a case. The special item in previous cases were cosmetic skins for the knife, some of which have been sold through the Steam community market for a little more than $400.

Other changes in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive update include a few modifications to Dust II and Train maps, bug fixes for various sounds, and the ability to join other players’ lobbies through Steam Groups. You can check out the full list of patch notes below.
