CS:GO De Dust 2 Map Updated to Be More "Refined"

Do you like what you see?

On Monday Valve announced that it was overhauling Dust2, Counter-Strike's most iconic map, and now it has detailed all the changes, released images and opened the arena up for beta testing in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. When Dust II is returned to the competitive pool, another map will be pulled out of play so it can be fixed up.

All of these changes and more sound pretty welcome, except for one.

Here's what Valve said about one change to bomb site A, where the broken-down cars in that area have been merged into one.

Cover has also been adjusted, with popular cover spots being shifted or removed to promote increased player flow while traveling around the map.

"Experienced players will now not have to worry about whether they're going to get hung up and newbs won't wonder if they're going to get burned", Valve explained. Along with this, certain physics based objects have been replaced with new static-interacting objects to avoid wonky physics with the game's engine.

Dust 2's update also comes with updates to player models.

The layout of the map has not changed, thankfully, with bombsites remaining in their old positions. competitively, this means we will still see the same famed duels between Counter-Terrorist and Terrorists on both bombsites and, of course, middle.

The announcement for the revamped Dust2 map came from the official CS:GO Twitter account, saying that the map would be "updated, refined" when re-released.
