The New Negev and R8 Revolver: Why, Valve? from lixiaoping's blog

Valve’s most recent update to CS: GO on April 12th, 2017 was quite the doozy. After removing the R8 Revolver and Negev from competitive play for a while in order to rework the actual weapons, Valve have re-added tweaked versions of both weapons to the game. These changes are fairly extensive, and will inevitably have a significant impact in not only matchmaking, but competitive play as well.

R8 Mover Changes: Nerf, Buff, Or None of the Above?

The R8 now has a shorter delay on its primary fire in an attempt to make it more viable. The price was also dropped to $709-the R8 Revolver now matches Counter-Strike’s iconic Desert Eagle in price CSGO AWP Skins.

That being said, the R8 is still a gimmick-y gun, even after Valve’s up-date. Casual players will still have fun aggressively peeking angles and pre-firing with the R8’s primary fire or getting up close as well as spamming the alternate fire. At the professional level, however , we’re unlikely to see many players swap out their trust Deagle for the revolver. Your movement speed with the Desert Eagle is higher than it is with the Buy All CSGO Skins , and both guns are a one-shot kill to the head. The Desert Eagle has more plentiful reserve ammo and a more reasonable rate of fire. For now, we’re sticking to our guns.
