The official Negev Description states:
“The Negev is a beast that can keep the enemy at bay with its pin-point supressive fire, provided you have the luxury of time to gain control over it.”
The Negev is an Israeli machine gun featured in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
The IMI Negev is available for both Counter-Terrorists and Terrorists to purchase. It carries a 150-round magazine, has a higher fire rate than the M249, and only costs $2000 after April 12, 2017 (originally, it had the price tag of $5700), compared to the M249’s $5200 price tag, but is initially a lot less precise. However, with enough sustained fire, the CS:GO machine gun becomes very accurate and easy to control. This tempts the user to pre-fire the weapon from around a corner to catch enemies by surprise and continue firing until they kill their target.
Popular CS GO Skins for the Negev:
Negev | Power Loader
Negev | Loudmouth
When held, the player’s movement speed is 150 units/s, meaning they suffer 40% speed reduction. This is the highest in-game, even bigger than the AWP and auto sniper rifles.
The weapon was not available in Competitive Matchmaking after the March 24, 2017 update. It was removed until the April 12, 2017 update.
Spraying at groups of enemies is tempting but be sure that you have the element of surprise and upper hand. The heavy weight of the weapon may allow enemies to rushing to your position before you fire and eliminate them.
