On 24 July, Valve removed Chlorine and Jungle from matchmaking, replacing them with two new maps, Mutiny and Swamp. To get the new maps ready, Valve has now deployed a new CS:GO update, focusing on changes and fixes to both Mutiny and Swamp.

New CS:GO update details

The new CS:GO update focuses on the two new maps. However, it also holds a recently-discovered smoke exploit fix, which allowed players throwing a smoke not to see the actual smoke, giving them a distinct advantage, in the right circumstances.


The Mutiny and Swamp maps, which have seen massive improvements in the new CS:GO update, are only available in Casual, Deathmatch, and Scrimmage game modes, for those who didn’t know.


Check out the changes to both maps below, starting off with Swamp, which sees the most balance changes.

  • Performance boost in some areas (2-5%)
  • Alligator and frog sounds are lower, less disturbing

  • Made the A-short room brighter and also made it easier for T to peek angles on entrance
