Video Game Updates & Patch Notes

New Updates for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Counter-Strike 2, Patch Notes and more

In a much-anticipated announcement, Valve released updates for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Counter-Strike 2 on 9th June 2023. Both games receive many updates, improving gameplay, maps, weapons, etc.

The changes start with modifications to the weapon case drops system. In the previous version, players would receive a weapon case after a specific amount of idle playtime. With the update, players will receive a weapon case with their first weekly XP rank up. This change makes the progression system more rewarding and should encourage regular play.

Furthermore, the company revealed that more CS2 Limited Test invites are now out, so if you wanted to play the game, go check it out yourself, you might have received the update.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
