CS2 Update Introduces Changes To Active Duty Maps

CS2 Update introduces much-needed changes to active duty maps
by Tit Krajnik on November 17, 2023   

On Thursday, November 16, Valve released a new CS2 update, which introduced fixes and improvements to all seven active duty maps, including Nuke, Mirage, Overpass, Inferno, Ancient, Anubis, and Vertigo. Besides map changes, CS2 Update also pushed gameplay adjustments to audio and visual feedback and sub-tick improvements.

 

Since the release of Counter-Strike 2, Valve has been pushing out patches and updates to address some of the biggest issues with the game. And while the game is in a better state now than it was at its release, Valve is far from done with the improvements.

The most recent patch, which was released on Thursday, November 16, introduced a plethora of gameplay changes, but the most notable are improvements to all seven active duty maps in Premier. Even though the recent CS2 Update focused most on fixing the grenade inconsistencies and clipping issues, the visual improvements to Overpass and Inferno are the biggest changes introduced with the update.

On Overpass, Valve added a metal plate to the SWAT vehicle located on A site to hide the player’s feet, whereas on Inferno, Valve removed the bucked on B site, as it was often mistaken for enemies during combat.
