Party Mode is a temporary mode enabled on all official servers to celebrate the birthday of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
It can manually be enabled by servers operators by using the setting
sv_party_mode 1 in the server.cfg file.
Similar to holiday modes, when party mode is active, several cosmetic changes are made to assets in-game. For example, chickens wear party hats and explode confetti when killed, the Zeus x27s sprays confetti and plays noisemakers when fired, and the bomb releases confetti bursts and balloons when defused.
