Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's latest update is here and it brought some major bug fixes. The update added the official game servers for Argentina and improved the AK-47’s model. The UI issue that occurred for non-Latin languages and a rare crash issue are both fixed. SDL library for OSX and Linus users is now updated.

The patch improved the loadout card assignment logic as well. Also, the bug where enemy pistols will not be provided while using enemy loadout card and crash issues when changing team in freeze time is looked into are resolved.

Several minor bugs on the map, Apollo, are fixed. Glass breaking is now a lot more consistent while gun stuck spots are removed. Some textures are replaced and realigned, while the upsetting bench is deleted. Fixes on boost spots and removals of cans that looked like smoke grenades are applied.

The optimization for lower-end PCs gets enhanced in this patch. But don’t expect a major frame rate boost on high-end PCs.
