The new sticker generation feature in Call to Arms allows players to have custom control over exactly where they can place the sticker on their weapon’s sheath, instead of only having to choose one of four designated locations.

12 hours after releasing a new update, the developers asked players to share their new handcrafted stickers, and some players responded with a wave of NSFW designs. Many designs use professional team and player stickers to spell out profane words or swear words, while others depict implied sexual acts. But the most popular NSFW design is easily the use of team logos or stickers to create the shape of a penis.

Anyone familiar with counterattack The player base shouldn’t be too surprised by these results and even the official information CS2 The Twitter account admitted in a retweet that they should have seen this coming.

This type of behavior is not new counterattack community where players have long used features like name tags to insert inappropriate names into the game wherever they can. Even before the latest update, stickers were a popular tool for this goal, but the new sticker creation feature now makes it even easier to spell words with stickers.
