The latest release notes for CSGO have been announced and with it brought about changes to four of the game’s map as well as some bug fixes.
With Ancient being brought into the active duty map pool in CS:GO, it has received some visual updates. Along with that, Cache, Grind, and Mocha received some tweaks as well.
Also, there was an ongoing exploit in CS:GO’s retake mode. In the mode, players would select cards to set their loadout and would obtain a random armor value to mimic a more realistic in-game situation. By reselecting these cards, players would get to shuffle their armor value to get a higher value. This was one of the bugs fixed in today’s patch.
