Valve continues to support Counter Strike: Global Offensive with regular updates. Two of the maps, namely Vertigo and Abbey, went through some heavy tweaks with the latest patch. Valve released the update and patch notes on March 21.

In Vertigo, the wingman version is now switched to bombsite B. The white metal structure at bombsite B has been made slightly larger in hopes it will reduce boost positions. The catwalk on top of T stairs of bombsite B has been extended and Bombsite A now has more railings. The elevator room ambient light is improved and the unintended boost HVAV fan is now completely removed. C4 explosion radius has also been reduced from 500 to 400.

In Abbey, the Pinky box is replaced and one more crate was added near ivy. Flower pots in bombsite B and A long stairs are removed and the gap between gazebo and crate is now eliminated. Complete patch notes are mentioned below.
