Looking for details on the latest CS:GO update? Whether it’s new weapons and maps, or minor tweaks to the game’s core arsenal, staying on top of the meta is key to dominating this competitive FPS.

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 are going to track the latest CSGO updates that hit liver  servers in this post. Each time Valve make significant patches to the game, we will let you know what is worth worrying about, what isn’t, and also provide as full a changelog as we are able to.

But before we crack on with the latest CS:GO update, we should mention that we’ll only be adding new patches as and when they are finally deployed to live servers. Anyway, on with the changelog.

CS:GO’s latest version was released on August 16, 2018 and contains myriad minor tweaks to maps and gameplay.

Weapon changes

  • The MP5-SD has been added to the game, available for offline testing and use in official Casual and Deathmatch servers.

Miscellaneous changes

  • Panorama UI is now enabled by default on all platforms (users who have any technical issues should contact Valve).
  • Playgamesound command is now cheat protected.

Workshop Changes

  •  Added MP5-SD tag for workshop submissions.

Those are all the changes from this CSGO update – nothing major, but a a new incoming weapon, and of course that new UI, to take note of.
