Latest CS:GO update squashes ping bugs and makes map changes
Since the ping feature was introduced into CS:GO, a couple of new bugs have reared their ugly heads. While not very widespread, using a ping could possibly reveal a hidden enemy. Further, there was also a bug which caused incorrect footsteps to be heard.
Latest CS:GO update details
Valve has released a new CS:GO update this week. With the latest CS:GO update, the developer has managed to fix two ping bugs. The full patch notes were posted by Valve on the official CS:GO blog.
