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 live  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 March 13 and contains some major weapons and economy changes, as well as some tweaks to a couple of maps.

Gameplay

  •  Adjusted round loss bonuses with the goal of reducing a negative feedback loop following streaks of losses:
    • Round loss bonuses are now based on the count of a team’s round losses. The count increased by one after every loss, and decreases by one after every win.
      • Loss bonus at 0 losses is $1400, $1900 for 1, $2400 for 2, $2900 for 3, and $3400 for four or more
      • Previously, a win would reset the round loss bonus. Now, a win reduces the counter by one.
      • Teams still begin the half with a loss count of 1.
  • Added flashbang assists for players who flash an enemy who is then killed by another player.

Weapons

  •  AUG
    • Increased in price to $3300 from $3100
  • M4A1-S
    • Now holds 25 bullets in the magazine, and has 75 in reserve
  • Shotguns
    • Nova price decreased to $1050, Sawed-Off to $1100, and Mag7 to $1300.
    • Nova penetration increased to 1.
    • Sawed-Off range increased to 1400.

Vertigo

  • Blocked runboost from T spawn to Bombsite B
  • Obstructed boost from top of floodlight in back of A
  • Changed layout of A site, made entrance onto site a regular doorway, added half-wall in front of scaffolding.
  • Added usable door in mid towards bombsite B
  • Fixed unintended boost on scaffolding on A ramp

Canals

  • Reduced number of routes around Bombsite B
  • Moved Bombsite B inside the palace
  • Added a door from center stairs to courtyard platform
  • Made it possible to jump up to B bridge from scaffold

Those are all the changes from this CSGO update. This one’s pretty major, and those AUG changes and M4A1-S changes are likely to have a significant impact on the meta, while the tweaks to the economy should make recovering from a loss streak a little easier.
