CS:GO update - the latest changes to the world's best FPS

CS:GO update

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive isn’t updated like other eSports. While the likes of League of Legends and StarCraft 2 spend weeks testing every small change, CS:GO’s come out of the blue. While Dota 2 will reinvent itself every three months, CS:GO’s changes are so subtle you might not even notice them logging in from day to day. To help facilitate you in noticing this, we’re going to track the latest updates to the game in this post. Each time Valve upgrades the game, we’ll let you know what’s worth worrying about, what isn’t, and provide as full a changelog as able.

If this isn’t enough change for you, try one of the other best FPS out there.

The latest Counter-Strike: Global Offensive update was on April 20. Here are the official patch notes from Valve.

CS:GO Map Update

  • Militia
    • Added path near CT spawn that connects to sewer and barn
    • Tweaked lighting throughout map
  • Cbble
    • Tweaked sightline in connector between underpass and Long A
    • Fixed various minor bugs
  • Canals
    • Rebuilt tunnel stairs area with smoother movement
    • Fixed boat geometry overlapping a pier at CT spawn
    • Fixed box intersecting windowsill at B
    • Fixed pixelwalk on railing at CT spawn
    • Moved plywood down on scaffolding below B to block a bad sightline
    • Fixed sticky scaffolding clip brush below B
    • Fixed some fade distance pop-up issues
    • Added two picnic chairs at short and made clips smoother
    • Removed lamp at ivy/garbage

Canals and Militia continue their quests to be real boys / maps, along with some minor fixes elsewhere. This Reddit comment has pictures of the new Cbble sightline. Here's the Militia changes

CS:GO Misc Update

  • Disabled holiday cheer.
  • Fixed some exploits related to packet loss.
  • Unified deploy duration for all knives to be exactly 1.0 seconds

A positive reaction to all this, particularly the knife changes, as it's stuff the community has been asking about for a little while. Valve continues to up their reaction speed in 2017. Also the holiday cheer is gone. Screw the holiday cheer.

CS:GO China Update

  • UI and localization fixes for Perfect World Beta.

Yeah, that's still happening. A very exciting time both for Chinese CS:GO players, and anyone interested in finding out what's going on with the game's loot boxes.

As always, the usual Reddit thread is over here.

I played over 400 hours of CSGO and I have to say the Devs are doing nearly nothing compared to the immense attention their game gets. It must be the same phenomenon when thousands of flies sit on a pile of shit they draw in the attention of more flies

Shame all the shotguns except the mag-7 sound exactly the same and possibly even use the same file for their sounds. Also they do not sound like shotguns at all.

Bloody idiotic. Another cash-grab from Volvo.

The exclusiveness of the pins is no more....

I threw up in my mouth at the title, CS:GO is trash and needs to be put down like the dog it is. low system requirements not a good game doth make.

Well, why do you say that, I have spent a great deal of time on other fps games, and i find CS:GO the most fun. Battlefield was never my favourite, however I did play Black ops 2, and 3 and enjoyed both a lot, even though i am better at the 2, and am bad at CS:GO i enjoy it more. It is a harder game with a steep learning curve and demands team play, while the other 2 do not. I have no intention of hating other games i would just like to ask why you like others/dislike this one.
