Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is one of the most popular free to play games on Steam. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the number of players has risen, and CS:GO even crossed the one million concurrent users mark recently. But, the problem with the increase in number is that hackers are rising, and there are a lot of blatant cheaters as well who ruin the game for others.

In Valve's recent patch, they made some necessary changes for weapons and maps. This includes a reduction on the fire rate and accuracy for SG553 as it’s one of the few guns with a scope. Valve also buffed the PP-Bizon’s armor penetration, which allows you to kill enemies a bit faster by depleting their armor quicker.

CS:GO Update Patch Notes

You can find the patch notes below:


  • SG553 – Reduced rate of fire and accuracy to bring the weapon’s value to be more in line with other rifles.
  • AUG – Improved standing accuracy while unscoped. Slightly reduced scoped accuracy.
  • M4A1-S – Price reduced to $2900.
  • Deagle – Improved accuracy while jumping, lowering the time to recover accuracy after the player lands.
  • Tec-9 – Reduced firing inaccuracy.
  • PP-Bizon – Increased armor penetration.


  • Compressed several textures for less memory consumption.
  • Silenced auto-vocalizations by bots during warmup.
  • Removed ‘Guardian’ from “Looking to Play’ tab.
