After Almost 6 Months I Finally Finished Red Dead Redemption 2

Razer, a brand normally associated with its expensive, high-end gaming products, moved into new territory this month when it announced the release of the RZR Collection, a collection of Razer-themed Counter Strike: Global Offensive weapon finishes.

Produced in collaboration with the Australian freelance designer, Luke Millanta, the RZR Collection was first teased in a Twitter post on December 23. The collection was again teased on December 26, with the post racking up more than 1,200 favourites in the space of three hours.

On January 3rd, Razer finally made the news official, announcing the release of the collection (hosted on the Steam Workshop) and a short preview video. Millanta, previously known for his work with Fnatic, Orange eSports, and Multiplay, also posted links to the collection and video.

Comprised of eight weapon finishes, the RZR Collection’s finishes feature primarily linear-based designs in Razer’s traditional colour set (green, black, and grey). All eight of the weapon finishes are named in honour of both past and present Razer products.

Steam Workshop approval ratings for the collection currently stand at 97 per cent, however some members of the community have taken to Twitter and Reddit to voice their frustrations, either with the design of the finishes or that their favourite weapons have not been covered. The most notable complaint has been that some players do not want Razer-themed weapon finishes in the game as it, to them, is just another form of advertising.

What do you think of the RZR collection? Should this collection be added to the game or should Razer stick to making hardware?

I'm ok with it. I won't buy them. I just sell most stuff I get, funds buying games during steam sales.

I'm sure I'll pick one up during a game, shoot people with it, then get shot. So the game remains the same. Honestly, there are so many skins that these will probably just be little more than 'just another set'.

I bet most people crying about it are mad their current skins will be worth less.

I look forward to the Avengers 2 skins, the Microsoft Collection and the Pokemon collection.

Good times.

Razr have done stuff like this before. ie razr footprints in PoE

I'm surprised it isn't more mainstream in games really. Marketing departments do annoying s*** all the time.

S*** I must be getting old. I thought CS was about shooting goodies and baddies. Do people really pay for skins? Those boxes that 'drop': are they just skins too?

I remember the days when crusty old people just ignored gaming news that wasn't of interest to them instead of whining like a b**** about it.
