ImageThe Counter-Strike Global Offensive developers have presented another update for the beta. Some smaller changes were added.

The developers of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive have updated the game once again. By this weekly update something was improved again at the Gameplay. The cash reward for defusing bomb has been raised to $3500 and multiple T spawn points have been added to Dust2. The weapon XM101 became a lowered recoil jump. Additionally the recoil on the AK47 has been lowered to be more in line with other weapons.

The biggest map update was on the new map Office. Among other things are the position of boxes adjusted so players can run past easily. But also the fade distance on the trash can near the building entrance at the back courtyard adjusted and other important changes did you make on this map.

But changes were not made only on the Map Office. Some smaller changes also on Safehouse, Inferno, Sugarcane, Nuke, Aztec and Dust. Also important are the new wood textures.
