New CS:GO Update Brings Significant Changes to CZ-75 and M4A1-S – June 12th Patch Notes

Ross Deason

A major new CS:GO update has been released which brings some of the most requested weapon balance changes and interesting tweaks to Mirage.

The CZ-75 and M4A1-S have been the source of a lot of complaints from the CS:GO community for what seems like forever.

The CZ-75 is widely regarded as the most overpowered pistol in the game and CZ-75 force buy rounds regularly beat full buy rounds when done correctly.

On the other hand, the M4A1-S is almost never selected over the standard M4A4 due to having significantly less ammunition per clip and overall.

The June 12th CS:GO update attempts to address both of these issues by reducing the base damage of the CZ-75 from 33 to 31 and increasing the ammo in the M4A1-S to a total of 80.

The price of the MP7 has also been reduced from $1700 to $1500 and there have been some interesting tweaks made to Mirage which include the interesting decision to remove the skybox entirely.
