CS:GO Hot And Cold Update

According to the official post, the CS:GO Hot and Cold (1.36.5.6) Update is here with a ton of new content for the game. It will require some time to get used to as these all-new changes will make the game quite different, especially when playing competitive matchmaking.

This is mainly due to the introduction of the all-new economy system. Furthermore, the CZ75a and Tec-9 have gone through a serious rework. Hence, it is highly recommended you give the mentioned patch notes a good look at before starting off a game of CS:GO.

Gameplay

  • Adjusted the start-of-half economy with the goal of reducing the impact of a pistol round win on subsequent rounds.
  • In Competitive Matchmaking, both teams are now considered to start the half with a one-round ‘losing streak’ that is reset following a round win. Instead of $1400, the Round 1 loser receives $1900, then $2400 for a subsequent loss, etc.
  • The start-of-half losing streak can be adjusted via “mp_starting_losses”
  • CZ75a: Adjusted the CZ75a to encourage semi-automatic fire at medium and long ranges.
    • increased recoil and fire inaccuracy
    • slightly improved accuracy recovery rate
  • Tec9: Adjustments to make the weapon more forgiving at medium rates of fire.
    • reduced fire inaccuracy
    • slightly improved accuracy recovery rate
  • SG553 price reduced to $2750
  • AUG price reduced to $3150

Maps

  • Austria is now available in Competitive Matchmaking.
  • Austria has been moved into Group Delta in official Casual matchmaking.
  • New Community maps Biome and Subzero are now available in Casual matchmaking as part of Group Sigma.
  • Canals has been removed from Competitive Matchmaking.
  • Shipped and Insertion are no longer available in official matchmaking.

Audio

  • Added a “VOIP Positional” audio setting. When this setting is enabled, in-game voice audio will be played from the position the player is standing at.

Misc

  • Enabled mouse bindings for voice chat to work at the end of match scoreboard.
  • Fixed backlog of async events in scoreboard causing performance problems during gameplay.

The CS:GO Hot And Cold Update is now available for all player to download and experience. The download size is expected to be close to 200 MB but it may vary from player to player. For more details, on the update, head on over to the official website for more details.

Dani

Unlike Professional Dota 2 players, Dani is toxic, aggressive and has zero gaming sense. But, his timely puns make up for everything. He has been playing Dota 2 since it was in its early access stage. And when he’s not, he spends his time writing about it.
