Shield found in the client
Back in the days when shield was introduced in Counter-Strike it has not received any apprecitiation from the community - the tool was basically unusable or just overbuffed and has not received any life in the competitive scene.
In the most recent update skintracker guys have found another interesting in-game model, which they have immidiately shared with the community via their twitter.
A "shield" has been added to the #PUBG test server files. It's marked as melee weapon in the files. There are also mentions of a "8 Man Squad Pistol Only" and a "BowMasters2018" Mode. Those are probably upcoming events. pic.twitter.com/WzHSvXHEKw— Skin-Tracker (@SkinTrackerCom) May 16, 2018
Another note concerns the event game modes, but their name tags don't sound too exciting, and could probably be skipped if they wouldn't like to bother fixing like they already did in the past.
