The most recent update to the game adds a slew of new features, including a wall that blocks vision from the Terrorist spawn on Dust2 through mid-game.

Valve has published “Operation Riptide,” the eleventh operation for CS:GO, as well as a number of gameplay tweaks, including the addition of a Private Matchmaking Queue mode. The four key gameplay updates that are most important to the professional scene are: Terrorists may no longer see CTs crossing Dust2’s mid doors due to the addition of a wall that obscures vision, forcing players to commit suicide to obtain insight. In “most game types,” grenades have also been made droppable, similar to guns.

The M4A1-S’s body damage has been increased, while the Deagle’s body shot damage has been lowered (it used to two-shot foes at close range). A short competitive matchmaking option based on the MR16 ruleset has also been implemented (first to 9 rounds). Deathmatch, meanwhile, has been updated to let players to choose between classic, team, and free-for-all variants.

Operation Riptide is now available, with new maps, missions, and ways to play your favorite game styles! Activate an Operation Riptide Pass and complete missions to unlock new agents, weapon collections, stickers, and patches.
