In the early hours of the morning on 24th August 2022 (BST), Valve released a new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) update. While it is not as big as the update on 17th August, which unleashed the 10-Year Anniversary Coin and Capsule, there are still some excellent additions and changes in the CS:GO 24th August patch notes.

The CS:GO patch notes for the update on 24th August reveal the Initiators Music Kit Box featuring six new Music Kits, fixes some issues, and makes map changes and fixes to Breach, Cascade, and Blagai, so let's just straight in.
