Valve has introduced the map Italy to the CS2 Limited Test. This map has been revamped with new lighting, textures, and two additional connector areas. It’s the third map outside the current active duty map pool, following Dust 2 and Office, and the ninth overall in the game. However, Anubis and Ancient have been removed from the game.
Competitive and Private Matchmaking have been temporarily disabled in the CS2 Limited Test. The exact reason for this change remains undisclosed by Valve. Typically, older maps are cycled out of Competitive testing when adding a new map. However, with the recent update, only the Italy map is available for Deathmatch and Casual modes.
Smoke Grenade Adjustments
The shape of smoke grenades has been adjusted to align more closely with their appearance in CS:GO. Astralis player blameF is happy for the update saying that this could be the GOAT update that makes CS2 insane.
Haven’t tested yet but this could be the GOAT update that makes CS2 insane. The wide smokes were one of the biggest issues. Now we just need the HE in smoke thing gone 🙏🏻 https://t.co/arKRsZuUQv
