Huge changes brought in by the latest Counter-Strike: Global Offensive update, one that sees major weapon changes and re-balance features, as well as the introduction of a brand new game mode in the game: Deathmatch. Even more, the thing that made old Counter-Strike so nice – custom maps – is finally ready to become real with a private beta for the Map Workshop. So yes, a big update today!

So here is a list of the latest major changes brought in by the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Update:

– A new game mode has been added to matchmaking and offline play: Deathmatch.
– Weapon balance and recoil were adjusted with pro community input ( Thanks to J3Di, NiP, VeryGames, ESC, 4NOT, mTw, and FM TOXiC )
– In addition to global changes that affect all weapons, specific adjustments have been made to: rifles, pistols, and the P90.
– Weapon purchasing changes:
– The AWP’s kill reward was increased from $50 to $100.
– The Glock is now a Terrorist only weapon.
– The FiveseveN is now a CT only weapon.
– The Terrorists’ molotov price has been reduced to $500. The CT’s incendiary grenade remains $850.
– Note that the pistol arrangement has changed in the buymenu.
– The messaging system has been converted to protobuf.
– Demos recorded with previous versions of CS:GO will not be compatible as of this update. In order to view old demos, set your ‘beta’ to ‘demo_viewer’ in the CS:GO betas property panel, in Steam. Don’t forget to set it back to ‘NONE’ when you want to play online again.
