CS:GO patch notes: what’s new in the latest update?

Downloaded the latest CSGO update but you're not sure what changes it's made? Here are the CS:GO patch notes for the last couple of updates

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a game with a lot of moving parts. As such, the game is in a constant state of flux, with the developers – Valve – needing to push out updates every couple of weeks to keep the game balanced.

In recent months, Valve’s approach to updates is to keep them coming little and often. So, the CS:GO patch notes might not be as meaty as other games you play. That might be disappointing to hear, but you’ll find that these updates are full of small fixes that keep the game – and its players – in check.

So, if you’re looking to play one of the best competitive FPS games out there and climb up the CS:GO ranks, you’re going to want to stay on top of the latest changes. Here’s the last couple of CS:GO patch notes for you to look at.
