New Counter-Strike: Global Offensive update brings a series of Riptide card changes

Hot on the heels of Natus Vincere’s victory at this year’s PGL Stockholm Major, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has received a fresh new update that brings themed autograph capsules, a new music set, and a series of changes to two of the FPS game’s maps.

The two maps needed for a round of adjustments with CS: GO’s November 9 patch are Insertion II and Extraction – bomb defusal maps added with the ongoing Operation Riptide. The latter gets the biggest batch of updates, starting with various upgrades to its center zone, both “visually and for gameplay”. There are no details beyond this, but it sounds like it will look and play better overall. Elsewhere, Valve has added a “powerful self-boost” to the midside T-side, and its cubby is now deeper.

The windows found at the site are now broken “due to a classic smoke grenade problem” – before the change, players were visible inside smoke when standing near the shattered windows, so it has been fixed. Similarly, you will now find that more glass can be crushed across extraction.

Separate changes adjust various other aspects around the map. A loud door noise has been corrected, raised plant boxes at the CT and middle seats have been removed – just as mowing on top of the boxes at T-main “allows a new boost place” – and there is now a new piece of cover in the wine room hallway, among other things. .

For Insertion II, the hostage rescue zone has been given an adjustment so that its back is now smaller than before, while the orange office has now been given an extra cubicle and desk. An annoying problem at the pizza place, which caused weapons to fall through the floor, has now been fixed, and – on the more fun side – you will now be able to squeeze into the top of the roller coaster on the playground as it has been. firm. Lovely.

With the update, Valve has released Stockholm 2021 autograph capsules for the major’s champions and finalists, which are now available for purchase, with autographs in paper, holo and gold in each. The new music set is called ‘Flashbang Dance’ (heh) and is by The Verkkars and Jordan ‘n0thing’ Gilbert. Check out the details of these in Valve’s post here and go to the patch notes here for the full list of changes with the latest update.
