Valve’s been rattling off CS:GO updates at a surprisingly rapid rate lately, and in the latest patch it’s made a few tweaks to many of the game’s community maps.

Vertigo, Blacksite, Biome and Abbey have all been tinkered with in various ways to make them play a little better.

The CS:GO devs announced the news via an official blog post, and we've rounded up all the key details for you just below:

Vertigo:

  • Gameplay updates to bombsite A
  • Updated art
  • Enabled bombsite A in Wingman

Blacksite:

  • Added commemorative graffiti for Katowice Showmatch

Biome:

  • Reverted the following January update changes:
  • Reopened connector between between A main and A long.
  • Reopened mid lower entry.

Abbey:

  • Added half body cover on B bombsite
  • Moved B long closer to bombsite
  • Reworked exit from underpass to B bombsite
  • Removed walls from B long entry to bombsite
  • Extended B bombsite allowing terrorists to plant the bomb behind crates
  • Opened ivy roof on B bombsite allowing grenades being thrown from underpass
  • Added glow sticks in gate house for better visibility
  • Added small crate on A bombsite to allow CTs to hold barn from behind half body cover
  • Removed wooden fences outside A bombsite
