CS: GO's latest update again makes changes to Canals and more


It feels like every other week Valve decides to make even more changes to Canals. This week’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) update sees several changes and fixes to the map yet again.

When the next CS: GO Major takes place in September this year, it will probably be a completely different map and it will be interesting to see if there are plans to use it in the FACEIT Major: London 2018 or when it might arrive in the competitive map pool.

Check out the latest changes and fixes to Canals below:

  • Added cover at the back of A site near shop
  • Lowered Tunnels water exit for better visibility toward Ivy
  • Removed awning and adjusted clip brushes at Ivy boost/jump
  • Enlarged stair landing at courtyard for better movement
  • Fixed gap in B site roof that grenades could fall through
  • Added stairs on left side of CT bridge for easier T access to B
  • Other minor bug fixes and improvements

Apart from even more changes to Canals, the team has also changed weapon tracers for the local first-person player as they now “appear to come from the weapon muzzle more reliably.” It looks like quite a few people aren’t happy about the update, as seen in the update announcement Tweet. Players are calling for a new or improved anti-cheat system and are also wondering where the panorama view is that should have come sometime in late 2017.

Be that as it may, you can check out the other update notes below:

  • Weapon tracers for the local first-person player now appear to come from the weapon muzzle more reliably. Since bullets are actually fired directly along the crosshair, tracers may still be offset from the muzzle in cases where an object blocks the tracer from reaching its target. However, noise in the geometry near the target (like displacement geometry) should no longer cause this offset to happen as often.
  • Guns that fire a tracer every few bullets now have a tracer on their first bullet. Fixes weapons not firing tracers at all with sv_infinite_ammo 1.
  • Weapon viewmodels now reacts to weapon recoil & aimpunch. Can be disabled with “viewmodel_recoil 0”.
  • Add a cheat setting convar cl_crosshair_recoil. When enabled will make the player’s crosshair also react to weapon recoil and aimpunch.
  • Several fixes to address exploits and stability issues.
  • Added new replay storage and download domains to allow more reliable download of match replays from Perfect World official datacenters.
  • Game state integration (link) will now include players’ forward vector orientation when “allplayers_position” integration option is enabled.
  • Added more detailed game information state for broadcast to friends.
  • Made snd_stream load more efficiently.
  • Fixed snd_stream to work on Linux.
