A day after the Cache map returned to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on the Steam Workshop, FMPONE and Volcano released an October 11th patch with a huge list of fixed bugs and spots.

Following the October 10 re-release of Cache, the community has been hard at work play-testing the updated map to help the map creators isolate and fix every bug and glitch that they can find. 

Just over 24 hours after the map officially returned to CS:GO on the Workshop, the map creators already released an update with a plethora of fixes and improvements.

Improved FPS

FPS and FPS go hand-in-hand. By that I mean, first person shooters and frames per second go hand in hand. With that, the frames per second performance for the CT, Tree room, Z Connector, and A site have all been improved.

Less frame rate drops mean less excuses if you don’t clutch the round, so you better hit your headshots now.

Multiple bug fixes

It wouldn’t be a CS:GO map without bugs, and there were a plenty when Cache first hit the Workshop servers. This is in no way an indictment or criticism of FMPONE or Volcano, bugs are part of any aspect of game development and are to be expected on day one.

The creators fixed several spots where players were getting stuck, including the doorways by Vent and B main, and the walls in the corner of A main and by Mid sandbags. Guns were also getting stuck in several spots like Mid sandbags and Sunroom, and there were numerous spots where the bomb was getting stuck as well.

In addition to all of that, the creators fixed some spots where wallbanging was occurring where it shouldn’t have, as well as a handful of clipping and pixelwalking issues.

This is not the end

So is Cache 100% fixed now? Of course not, that’s not how this process work. Even now the Global Offensive subreddit and the discussions section of the Steam Workshop are still being populated with more bugs and issues being spotted by players.

It’s important to remember that the initial wave of feedback and testing only came from pros, so in a way, these first couple of weeks or so is acting as a public beta for all fans to be a part of. Like we’ve seen with maps in battle royale games like Fortnite and Apex Legends, subtle and serious map changes continue long after its initial release, and that results in a better playing experience for us players.
