CS:GO Update – Changes To Gameplay, UI, Danger Zone + More

Counter Strike: Global Offensive’s latest update brings multiple big changes!

Recently, Valve released a new update to CS:GO. The update makes another change to the in game economy and brings a number of new features to the ‘Danger Zone’ game mode… These new features include a ‘Drone Pilot’ option!

The Economic change caps the round-loss bonus at five which essentially eases overall economic control after a team with a losing streak wins a couple of rounds.

Another interesting update adds an event schedule to the CS:GO watch tab along with a new button called “Looking to Play”… This button allows for solo players to advertise they are looking to play in party lobbies, a great feature for players looking to join a team with good communication.

Take a look at the full list of changes below:

DANGER ZONE

– Unlocked Drone Pilot Tablet, Bonus Wave Money, Bonus Explore Money, and Armor+Helmet as starting item options.
