Track from a Distance
The latest drone technology has arrived in Danger Zone. Take control of a nearby drone with the Drone Pilot Upgrade and use it to spy on your enemies, scout for resources, or carry items across the map!
The experiment has evolved. To be the last team standing, you’ll have to put your skills to the test – with all new respawn and deploy mechanics, new items to master, and a brand new map to explore.
Today’s update also includes some quality of life upgrades, like an all new player-pinging system.
Grab a teammate and see if you’ve still got what it takes to survive!
Today we’re introducing two maps to CS:GO: Ruby, a bomb defusal map set in a scenic town in Portugal, and Workout, a community favorite hostage rescue map! As these two maps enter, we’ll say goodbye to two other community-created maps: Abbey and Biome.
Ruby is currently available in the Defusal Group Sigma, but in the coming weeks will be added to Competitive Matchmaking. Workout is currently available in Competitive Matchmaking, and the Hostage Map Group.
Today’s update includes a big map pool adjustment – Vertigo has been added to Active Duty, and Cache has been moved to the reserves while it undergoes some renovations.
Jump into a Vertigo match and send us your feedback!
