CS:GO’s latest update features a big map pool adjustment, a brand new music kit and a new sticker Capsule too.

First up, Valve has officially tweaked the competitive Active Duty map pool for the first time this year. In a surprise move, Cache will undergo "some renovations", so Vertigo is to take its place. This means it'll also feature in the next CS:GO Major - Starladder Berlin - in August.

The Active Duty rotation will still remain at seven total maps, out of a pool of eight. One map is usually rotated out and reinstated later once it has undergone some revisions, so we can fully expect to see an updated Cache slide back into the active map pool in the future.

For those who witnessed ENCE’s dream run at the IEM Katowice 2019 Major, the next addition is sure to please. Valve has released Verkkar’s EZ4ENCE song as a music kit in-game, which means you can play the meme/anthem in honour of the Finnish side.

Finally, there’s a brand new Feral Predators sticker capsule featuring some pretty wild designs cooked up by community artists. There are nine designs in total and 18 stickers to collect.

For a complete list of all the changes in the latest update, head on over to CS:GO's official blog post.
