Valve has released another update for CS:GO. The patch released on July 23rd adds two new maps to the official matchmaking casual, deathmatch, and scrimmage modes while removing Chlorine and Jungle. The two new maps titled Mutiny and Swamp are playable effective immediately.
In addition to the two new maps, decoy grenades have seen a bit of a rework while the somewhat controversial Trusted Mode has seen an update and been made the default launch mode.
The decoy adjustment is a small one with the explosion caused by the conclusion of a decoy “no longer damaging teammates by default. A command on console will adjust this if desired.
You can read the full CS:GO patch notes below –
