Putting this out as the main reason for such an update. The post further highlighted that “at this point, nearly all key purchases that end up being traded or sold on the marketplace are believed to be fraud-sourced.”

  • Added restrictions on tradability and marketability of newly purchased case keys, see here for more details.
  • Fixed a client UI issue sometimes displaying CS:GO Weapon Case as genuine quality.


  • Fixed an exploit where players could avoid Danger Zone damage if they had an invalid player name.
