Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is getting a refined version of Dust2

If there ever was a fan-favorite map in shooters, it's de_dust and de_dust2 in Counter-Strike. In this balance, Valve replaced the classic Counter-Strike map, Dust II, with Inferno in their CS:GO active duty playlist (a set of maps used specifically for e-sports). At the time of writing, Valve has not specified a time-frame, but expectations are it will arrive in the next few weeks.

There is no information about what will change with update on discarded tweet. The latest CS: GO update rolled out last week (October 5) but it did not bring any considerable changes. Most notably, the colors are more vibrant with better map textures.

The B bomb site has been changed to move the busted vehicle further away, "allowing a more free player flow around it", Valve said.




Home of a thousand frags, Dust II is probably the series' most played map, and if you're watching a frag-video and it's got sand in the background it's probably this video, or one like it. The answer is usually Dust II. When Dust II returns to competitive play, another map will be removed so that the map updating cycle can continue.

The visual upgrades are also extending to the game's character models, with the Terrorist team getting some higher-resolution models to match the environment.
