Revamped CS:GO Dust 2 Map Returns to Competitive Play

Revamped CS:GO Dust 2 Map Returns to Competitive Play

It is still unclear when the map will be added to the Active Duty Group again but the new map is already available via the game's beta test branch starting today. Valve has a bunch of screenshots highlighting the changes to Dust 2 and the new terrorist models at the Counter-Strike website. The last game update was October 5, which consisted of small, additional changes to the molotov-smoke bug fix.

The most noticeable update to Dust II is the graphical improvement over the previous CS:GO iteration.

Home of a thousand frags, Dust II is probably the series' most played map, and if you're watching a frag-video and it's got sand in the background it's probably this video, or one like it.

The tweet Valve published offers a snazzy look at the upcoming rework. It will now be much less of a hassle to utilize this technique during play on this map.

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.

The Dust II remake, as with any time you try to make changes to a fan-favourite, will be divisive. The map is lighter and brighter throughout, and Valve has removed a series of dark spots where players could camp.

With all of the map updates, Valve has also made a decision to treat fans by overhauling the villains of Dust II, the Leet Krew.
