Counter-Strike Global Offensive, the free-to-play PVP game by Valve, received a small patch yesterday; no new content has been added. However, several changes to two maps were made, namely, Ember and Hive. You also have your customary bug fixes.

In the map Hive, headpeeks through handrails won’t be possible as they have been reworked. The middle statue area is made a little brighter and the train horn sound on the bombsite is removed.

Ember map received the most number of changes. Drops will no longer spawn above the rock tunnel near Observatory; instead, they will now spawn on the Docks building. Players will now be able to easily access the Docks building roof.

Thanks to the patch, the low-violence version of the “R8 Revolver | Crazy 8” weapon finish has been updated.

You can read the complete patch notes below.

  • Fixed a regression in the kill panel to show the killer’s weapon.
  • Fixed a rare interruption in map veto process in Premier matchmaking when players disconnect.
  • Updated low violence version of “R8 Revolver | Crazy 8” weapon finish.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was released on PC in 2012, developed and self-published by Valve.
