Counter-Strike: Global Offensive received a small patch yesterday that focused on improving the game's anti-cheat system. It also made some changes to the map queue and fixed some underlying bugs.

Trusted Mode in CSGO will now be turned ‘ON’ by default. The previous launch option of Trusted Mode has been removed. Also, you can allow third-party software to CSGO by using “-allow_third_party_software” in launch options.

A few maps were removed and added to the map queue. Two maps, Chlorine and Jungle, were removed from the matchmaking, but Mutiny and Swamp were added to Casual, Deathmatch, and Scrimmage game modes.

The update also made some changes to grenades and also fixed a couple of bugs. You can learn more about all the changes below or on the official site.
