Latest CS:GO update adds changes to Mutiny, Swamp, and Cache

The latest maps to be added to the rotation have all gone under the knife

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s latest patch doesn’t have much in the way of new content for fans to enjoy, but it does have a lot of map updates which will change the way you and your teammates play Mutiny, Swamp, and Cache.

The update, which was released on August 26, puts the new community made maps under the knife, making them more balanced by adding new bits of cover and new passageways between sites. Basically if you regularly have these two maps in your matchmaking rotation, you’re going to want to dive in and take a proper look at the changes before queuing for CS:GO ranked.

Cache has also had a few changes, but these seem largely bug orientated, and a pesky glitch that allowed coaches to free roam the map during rounds has now been hot fixed. You can read the full list of map changes, courtesy of Valve, below.
