Home » Counter-Strike: Global Offensive update for 7/23/20 (7/24/20 UTC)

Valve has released another new update for CS:GO today. While not a whole lot was added, the maps Chlorine and Jungle have been replaced with Mutiny and Swamp.

Also noteworthy, Trusted Mode is now the default launch mode when starting CS:GO. The previous launch mode options have been deprecated. In addition, there is a new launch compatibility option for 3rd party software. It is provided to allow 3rd party software to access CS:GO.

If you want to know more about how Trusted Mode works, see CS:GO Trusted Mode FAQ.

TRUSTED MODE

  • Trusted Mode is now the default launch mode for CS:GO.
    • Previous Trusted Mode launch options have been deprecated.
    • Instead, a new compatibility launch option “-allow_third_party_software” is provided to allow third party software to access the CS:GO game process.
    • For more information about Trusted Mode please refer to the following Knowledge Base article: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=8835-KLXV-0292

MAPS

  • Added Mutiny and Swamp to official matchmaking in Casual, Deathmatch, and Scrimmage game modes.
  • Chlorine and Jungle have been removed from official matchmaking.

GAMEPLAY

  • Grenades now convey the correct amount of damage to teammates if thrown by another teammate who switched teams or disconnected.
  • Decoy grenade explosions no longer damage teammates by default. (controlled via convar ff_damage_decoy_explosion)

MISC

  • Fixed bsp-embedded models caching rules to allow for reloading the correct model when transitioning to a different map.
  • Capped view model backfaces on Desert Eagle.
  • Fixed workshop workbench texture regeneration on low shader quality GPU configurations.
  • Minor adjustments to Danger Zone delivery drone behavior for Steam Workshop Danger Zone maps.

Rumor has it:

  • The blog post doesn’t contain too many words, but it has a carousel of several screenshots of Mutiny and Swamp
  • Happen to come across a map issue in either Mutiny or Swamp? To make sure map authors actually get a chance to be aware of any issues you discover, Mutiny has a discussion on its Steam Workshop page, and right now, Swamp’s discussions section is looking pretty lonely
  • Although Danger Zone has no replacement for Jungle at this time (leaving just Blacksite and Sirocco in the rotation), a stray “dz_frostbite” has surfaced within client strings. Perhaps hell might freeze over soon…
  • Size is close to 400 MB – data capped users should be aware of the heightened size of this particular update
