Valve has released a small update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, most notably adjusting the damage of the Glock pistol as well as Deagle's accuracy.
With Glock still considered overpowered despite its accuracy being adjusted in the previous update, Valve has rolled out yet another patch where they continue the balancing act as they've also adjusted Deagle's accuracy.
They have also fixed some issues with workshop, added a RCON whitelist and added better support for GOTV relays through commandline. Full release notes are:
