Valve Releases Major Updates For Maps And Smoke Exploits - Tipify

Esports News – Valve takes a break from its anti-cheating efforts for a while. For its latest update, the developers focus their attention on CS:GO’s latest additions and major in-game features: smoke exploits and maps.

CS:GO’s two new maps—Swamp and Mutiny—were introduced to the game earlier this month. As new features, these maps still need massive updates and improvements based on players’ feedback and Valve’s observation. The new update brings in balance and patch fixes to both maps.

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

The groundbreaking fix for the game’s smoke exploit was released last year. It was one of the major updates in 2019, and some even recognized it as the very thing that protected CS:GO’s reputation and integrity in the gaming community. For the new update, which wasn’t included in CS:GO’s patch notes last July 27, players found out that a bug from the smoke exploit has now been patched by Valve and no longer works.

This smoke bug allowed players to turn smokes invisible without the knowledge of other players. It was useful and beneficial to many. More than that, the trick doesn’t trigger VAC. Valve noticed the situation and updated the smoke exploit immediately.
