The Detonation Bug in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Has Finally Been Fixed

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s about time.

Released eight years ago, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is on of the longer-running games on the market thanks to continuous work and regular updates. A new patch just went live and with it comes a fix for the glitch that stopped damage from counting during detonations along with some map tweaks to help tidy things up a bit.

Of all the maps, Mirage sees the most changes. The map has shifted a bit to open up new tactical locations – something that means you’ll likely find a few new areas and surprises if you really know the map. Here’s a full breakdown of the patch notes:
