There are numerous different music kits of various genres available for CS: GO. so no matter what kind of music you are into, there will likely be something out there for you. Below we will take a look at some of the music kits that we think are the best that CS:GO has to offer.
Austin Wintory – Desert Fire
This music kit really needs no introduction as it was composed by a very famous composer. It is a perfect blend of film music, traditional Spanish acoustic guitar, and orchestral drums with some interesting flute melodies sprinkled in here and there resulting in a bunch of warm yet dramatic compositions. While the regular version of this music kit often costs around $3.2, the StatTrak version can reach up to $5.5.
Daniel Sadowski – The 8-bit Kit
This music kit provides a retro blast from the past so if you are a fan of retro video games, then this kit is made for you. The music kit is filled with 8-bit digital instruments and captures the feeling of the tunes that you would hear on old retro video game consoles. The regular kit can usually be purchased for around $3 while the StatTrak version can usually cost twice as much.
Noisia – Sharpened
If you are a fan of electronic music, then this music kit should be right up your alley. Basedrops, percussions strong pads, and all of it loud is just what this music kit offers in each of its compositions. It also offers consistency across the board within the kit’s compositions, and while they are not as flashy as some of the other music kits on this list, they are definitely less distracting and thematically consistent. The Sharpened music kit is overall an excellent mesh of electronic music. No more, no less. When it comes to pricing, the regular version can usually be purchased for around $3 while the StatTrak version of it can be found for about $5.5.
Feed Me – High Noon
This composition is a mesh of two things that on the surface glance couldn’t and shouldn’t work well together. However, it stands as a testimony that things are not always as they seem. High Noon is a set of compositions that combine the characteristic guitar sounds of the Wild West and beat electronica, and all of them manage to pull it off quite well. While the regular version of the High Noon music kit can usually be found for around $3.2, the StatTrak version is somewhat rarer and can commonly be found going for a price of up to $5.40.
dren – Deaths Head Demolition
Deaths Head Demolition by dren is a set of compositions that are very reminiscent of music that you would commonly hear in your favorite movies. The compositions perfectly combine epic drum and percussion segments with orchestral chords while at the same time managing to add some flare with a heavily distorted guitar sound, all of it culminating in a set of truly epic compositions. In terms of price, the regular version of this music kit usually costs around $3.15 while its StatTrak counterpart is usually double that price.
The Verkkars & n0thing – Flashbang Dance
In 2021, n0thing got together with a music band called the Verkkars and produced the famous video “The Verkkars – Flashbang Dance feat nothing”. Trying to integrate the trend, Valve introduced as part of the CS:GO eponymous Flashbang Dance music kit. Today you can buy it for around $5. It is honest price for such perfect piece of music from the past decade.
What are StatTrak Music Kits?
StatTrak Music Kits are music kits in CS: GO which have the StatTrak technology equipt on them. While StatTrak is generally used on skins to track the number of opponents that you have eliminated with that skin, when it comes to music kits, StatTrak works a little differently. Namely, on music kits, StatTrak is used to track the number of times a player has gotten the MVP status at the end of the round. StatTrak music kits are rarer than regular ones and as such, they tend to be more expensive. While regular music kits usually go for around $2, their StatTrak counterparts can fetch up to more than $5.
Is it worth it to buy a CSGO Music Kit?
When it comes to whether it is worth buying a music kit or not, it all comes down to personal preference. If you are the type of person who doesn’t really care about the music in CS: GO and just wants to play the game as soon as possible, then to you it might seem a bit unjustified to spend money on CS: GO music kits as you are probably not paying much attention to the music anyway.
However, if you are a person on the other side of the spectrum and care about music and the tunes that are going in the background while you are waiting for your next match to begin, then it probably makes a lot of sense to you to spend a couple of dollars to get away from the mundane default music and treat yourself to something a little bit different and perhaps more enjoyable.
Regardless of what kind of music you like, if you fall into the second category of people, there is likely something that fits your taste among the CSGO Music Kits.
Can you use your music in CSGO?
Yes, you can. There are numerous ways of using your own custom musing during CS:GO matches. There are ways that you can even stream your music to other players in your game. However, depending on the platform that you want to play on, the software that you need to use to add custom music to your game will be different. If you are playing CS: GO on windows, then you will likely be using Source Live Audio Mixer. On the other hand, if you are using Mac, you will need to use Loopback to add custom music to CS: GO.
