As Dexerto notes, music kits are an in-game feature a player can buy to change the music in CS:GO. This includes the songs heard in the Main Menu, Round Start and End, and Death Camera.
The latest package boasts Curry’s tracks ‘Walkin’, ‘Ultimate’, and other cuts from his 2022 album ‘Melt My Eyez See Your Future’.
Per the announcement, the Revolution Case features 17 weapon finishes from community artists and the gloves from the Clutch Case as rare special items.
Valve is also shipping the Espionage Sticker Capsule, with 21 unique stickers from Steam Workshop artists. Check out the preview images in the tweet below.

In a previous update last November, Valve made changes to some of CS:GO‘s weapons – including the iconic sniper rifle, the AWP.
The gun had its magazine size cut in half, down to 5 from its previous 10. A pretty severe cut – and it wasn’t the only gun to be nerfed in that update, as the M4A1-S rifle became less effective at long distances.
Late last year, Esports commentator and host Matthew ‘Sadokist’ Trivett was fired from a CS:GO tournament for allegedly smashing a TV.
Denzel Curry’s ‘Melt My Eyez See Your Future’ landed at Number 22 on NME‘s 50 best albums of 2022 list.
