Animated Chat Stickers

Animated Chat Stickers seem to include seven character-based animations like playing with the C4 explosive, skipping, hugging the chicken, juggling HE grenades, and a few others. The remaining animations are specifically based around a CS:GO case and the popular Chicken character found on Inferno.

Steam Avatar Frames

Steam Avatar Frames, on the other hand, are based on popular weapon skins like AUG - Akihabara Accept, Galil AR - Cerberus, and probably the most famous of them all AWP - Dragon Lore.

The Three Alleged Steam Avatar Frames

While these items might not enhance or affect the game of Counter-Strike in any way and are cosmetics that are not directly affiliated with the game, it is a fantastic gesture by Valve to create some unique Steam-based cosmetics themed on one of the most popular titles on the gaming platform.

This is also not the first time such a leak has been spotted as Pavel Djundik, data miner and creator of SteamDB in the month of March had already announced that customizable Steam Avatar Frames were about to come out soon.

Three months have passed since the leak, and Valve staying true to its notorious nature of never releasing anything on time have once again managed to successfully stick to their unwritten rule.

It is still not certain at the moment when Valve might be releasing these assets publically, but it is definitely something that users can wait for after having been teased by a Source 2 port three times this year already.
