CS:GO Update with Molotov changes

By Marvin 'Destroyer1721' Horstmann

ImageA new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive update has landed today. This update includes various bug fixes and tweaks but more importantly it has changed the molotov and incendiary grenades and how they work.

This update has some changes. You can now throw a smoke grenade to extinquish the fire of a molotov or incendiary and if either of them gets thrown into an already deployed smoke grenade it has no effect what so ever. In addition the slowdown which the player was effected by when in the fire has been removed. These changes are somewhat intriguing and it will be interesting to see if various tournament now allow for the fire weapons in competitive play.

Do you think this is a good change for CS:GO? Let us know in the comments. The full change list is below:
