Counter-Strike: Global Offensive continues to receive post-launch support even after a decade since its release. The developer, Valve, released a small patch to improve the Ember map. Minor tweaks to the Vineyard map have been made as well.

Players will see a 30% to 50% improvement on the FPS in several areas of Ember. From now on, Elevator will not kill players that are standing below the doors. The stuck spot in Ruins is fixed and misaligned clips at Industry have been correctly aligned.

The patch optimizes the water material and changes location names in spawn selection. Loading screen image design has been changed and radar alignment for spectators will work as intended.
