The R8 Revolver is an 8 shot revolver introduced as part of the 2015 Winter Update to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
- Upon release, the R8 Revolver created a massive uproar within the community, sparking negative comments from professional players such as aizy, device, sgares, JW, NiKo, Yam, TaZ, pyth, YNk, with positive comments only coming from friberg and GeT_RiGhT.
- According to SPUNJ, Valve had talked to pro players about the addition of the R8 Revolver, and despite high negative feedback it was added anyway. 
- The R8 Revolver has its price strategically decided so that it may not be bought during the pistol round.
- Initially, a tether gun was proposed as the new addition to the pros, but was not added due to high negative feedback.
