Valve’s free-to-play FPS game, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, received a small update yesterday. The patch made changes to CS: G0 360 Stats and fixed several bugs in multiplayer maps. A total of three maps were touched by the update, namely, Ancient, Grind, and Frostbite. The first map, however, received the most amount of tweaks.

In Frostbite, several stuck spots have been fixed while watchtower models are reworked. The patch also addressed the gap in terrain and regression with airdrops.

For the Grind, the wall on A long is now surfable. The invisible wall near bombsite B is fixed and out of map boost near bombsite A no longer exists. Art near T spawn has been updated and the collision of wall and pillars near bombsite A is also addressed.

From now on, if players open the game in untrusted mode, they will only get the warning once. Previously the game was giving the player duplicate warnings. The weapon performance category score will now be calculated a little differently. The exact change in the calculation wasn’t revealed in the patch notes though. You can read the changes made to the Ancient map below:

  • Implemented Cubby 2.0 in mid connector to A, to remove cheap shoulder angle towards site
  • Slimmed down the fancy rock, also in mid connector to A
  • Sparsed foliage and improved clipping on boost planter near A main
  • Quieted down soundscape birds
  • Removed clipping from top of bombsite sign in A site, allowing you to self-boost to planter by T main
  • Added vphysics clip to T spawn water so guns don’t fully submerge
  • So many clip brush tweaks
  • Blocked grenades from entering inaccessible building by T entrance to mid
  • Blocked pixelgaps through scaffolding near B site
  • Blocked pixelgaps through doorway trim in new CT path to A site
  • Simplified grenade collision on rooftops
  • General optimizations

You can read the complete patch notes on the official site.
