Dust II: CS:GO’s Famous Map Returns For Beta Testing
Posted 14th October 2017 By: Noreen - Tipify Staff    225 Views
The most played map throughout the history CS:GO finally made its comeback on the 11th of October. It was initially removed from Active Duty competitive play in February and replaced by the revamped Inferno map. Dust II’s old version can still be played but it became unavailable for competitive play and was not included in tournaments all over the globe. Everyone was pleased with the changes made in Inferno and it was the push needed by Dust II for its own improvements. Valve’s aim to improve player readability, movement, and visuals resulted in the map having a total renovation. The Terrorist player models were also upgraded for them to have a more rugged look which matches the theme.
The map’s layout did not change, having the bombsites where they were previously positioned, though CS:GO fans and CS:GO teams might be delighted to see some changes with the bombsites’ visuals. Bombsite A looks more like a hotel-bazaar, while Bombsite B looks more like a fortress, which makes it more difficult to penetrate. On the surface, the tunnels have an open top. It’s quite uncertain though if this opening has some skyboxes above that can be used to throw flashbangs to blind enemies. Walking through the map lanes will make you feel like you’re in the streets of an actual city.
