CS:GO’s new update adds a 1v1 Warmup mode, nerfs Deagle

Valve’s posted a fresh new batch of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive updates, which add two key new changes to the FPS game’s gameplay along with a bunch of map, UI, and miscellaneous tweaks.

First up is the addition of some “one-on-one warmup arenas” for the game’s Vertigo and Train maps in Wingman mode. This warmup option takes place, naturally, right before a match kicks off, letting you plug away at a single opponent as you’re both waiting to get stuck into the match. “Get a few reps in before the match begins with an experimental 1v1 warmup mode,” Valve says, adding that it “may be added to other maps and competitive matchmaking in the future”.

In addition, Valve’s pretty much reversed the Deagle pistol’s buff from a week ago with a nerf to its accuracy when jumping. While the last adjustment “improved accuracy while jumping”, it looks like it’s not just a little too accurate – the dev’s added “a new weapon parameter ‘inaccuracy jump apex’, set to 331.55 for the Deagle”.
