New Counter Strike Global Offensive update

The small update fixes an issue from the last patch in the game. The update mentions that grenades can no longer apply impact damage more than once. The update size is also rather small, coming in at just 5 MB.

The bug caused players to take massive damage when in contact with a grenade. The grenade would bounce around 10-15 times, delivering serious damage. This had raised major concerns in gameplay.

Valve was quick to react to the problem, and fixing the issue would be a significant relief to their fan base. It is quite nice to see the developers responding well to their players’ concerns.

Fans react

While players are happy about the bug being fixed, several others are still expecting Valve to release the Source 2 port. Source 2 is scheduled to release soon, although there were no updates. Fans made many comments over Twitter addressing both issues. Read some of the tweets below.
