About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together guides and news across the site.

CS:GO’s latest update focuses solely on map changes, with Vertigo receiving many quality of life adjustments alongside smaller tweaks to Nuke and Abbey.

Vertigo recently replaced Cache in the competitive map pool, but it looks as though it wasn’t quite match-ready. Valve’s taken on board community feedback over the last few weeks and tightened up the map’s bugs, exploits and architecture to bring it in line with all the other maps.

Abbey has also received a fair amount of attention, with Valve moving bits and pieces of the map, and opening up skyboxes and the like.

Finally, Nuke has received one update which removes a frustrating bug which caused C4 to get stuck outside near Silo.

We've posted all of the changes below, but they're also available over on Valve's official blog post page.

  • -Fixed line of sight traces for weapon pickup rules to ignore debris.
