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

CSGO update

What’s new in the latest CS:GO update? From new weapons and maps, to buffs and nerfs to the game’s core arsenal, here are all the latest changes to CS:GO.

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 make significant patches to the game, we will let you know what’s worth worrying about, what isn’t, and provide as full a changelog as we are able to.

Try one of the other best FPS out there if this isn’t enough change for you.

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 June 12, 2018 and contains myriad minor tweaks to maps and gameplay.

Weapon changes

  • Reduced base damage of the CZ75a from 33 to 31 (a single shot is no longer lethal against an enemy who’s wearing a helmet)
  • Increased reserve ammo for the M4A1-S from 40 to 60, to provide some additional utility without impacting brief fights
  • Reduced price of the MP7 from $1700 to $1500

Miscellaneous changes

  • Game servers will no longer print their public IP address in response to “status” command from clients
  • Unsealed graffiti items can now be deleted
  • Fixed a bug where looping sounds playing from dormant entities could play briefly before switching off

Mirage changes

  • Removed skybox limitations
  • Updated some landmark art
  • Lowered skill ceiling to get into apartments from T spawn
  • Banked corner in hallway leading to A site scaffolding
  • Removed ladder near entrance to apartments from T spawn, replaced with boxes
  • Removed broken corner near van in bombsite B
  • Improved visibility from T side of mid towards A connector (removed dark background door inside connector)
  • Improved visibility from CT stairs towards T ramp in bombsite A (removed dark background door inside ramp)
  • Disabled bullet collision on vertical fence columns in mid
  • Removed wooden pillars at bottom of mid
  • Fixed some player collision bugs

Canals changes

  • Redesigned T approach to B site through alley, with split entrances
  • Improved visibility of players against the scaffolding near A

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

What do you even want them to do, besides get better servers for competitive

Work on really basic things like the worst in class mouse issues if you turn on Vsync that have been around since TF2.

That's an easy enough fix. Just turn off v-sync. If we're gonna talk engine level shit they may as well work on the netcode which has been pretty mediocre in Source engine since the start. Hopefully they do that with Source 2

According to who? Is Justin Bieber's music the best in the word if it's played more than any other music?

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.

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.

Bloody idiotic. Another cash-grab from Volvo.

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