CS:GO update brings changes to Mirage; opens skyboxes on Train and Dust2

The latest update to the game has made a number of adjustments to Mirage, while also opening skyboxes near ivy on Train and outside of B site on Dust2.

One of the most notable changes sees the opening of the skyboxes from B halls into B site on Dust2, an adjustment that the community previously speculated would be made when the map was reworked in October 2017. On Train, the skybox over the building between ivy and A site has also been opened up.

The update also brings a number of changes to Mirage, including the addition of a bench in mid that allows for players to peek catwalk and self-boost themselves into window. The T-side entrance into mid has been widened in response to the "Astralis" mid smoke that was popularized for CTs to take control.

A bench has been added for players to solo-boost into window in mid

A pixel jump-spot from the middle of B site to catwalk has also been removed, while an AWP wallbang from palace to the close corner of the balcony has been added. Additionally, spectator x-ray settings have also been improved, adding the ability to draw outlines around the bomb and dropped defuse kits.

The full patch notes for the 1/29/2020 update can be found below:

I don’t know about the other mirage changes, but the bench that they added will change the mid gameplay for sure.
2020-01-30 02:09
That actually fucking sucks, this opens a lot for t side
2020-01-30 06:54
So how is that a bad thing?
2020-01-30 11:14
Indeed its a good thing, ct side was already strong
2020-01-30 11:45
holdin off 2v2, 1v1 situations will be a lot trickier
2020-01-30 13:43
And how exactly is that a bad thing?
2020-01-30 14:05
bad for cts
2020-01-30 14:42
Then its good for Ts. So why does it have to be CT sided?
2020-01-30 15:28
because even now with mid control, t side has great control over map. now with self boost, they'll have even bigger advantage
2020-01-30 15:58
Well, in 2019 mirage was slightly CT sided. Why can't it be slightly T sided? Imo this brings good variety on mirage but I think it needs more complete remake. Its just too overplayed and boring.
2020-01-30 16:07
+1 good update That's only 1 bench but dozens of possibilities

So why are you talking about bad fps?
2020-01-31 08:54
I just got fps drip from 400-500 to 200-300. It s not that bad, since i dont have 240hz
2020-01-30 09:10
Cutting fps in half actually is pretty fucking bad. Personally I'm not going to play this game under 300 fps, it feels garbage. You're on bad waters already bro.
2020-01-30 11:18
oh shit, and i'm happy when i get 100+ fps constantly, cuz most of the time it's just 70-90 :D lol
2020-01-30 13:49
lol, hate this kind of argument. Have u spent 1500-2000$ on ur pc to get this 300 fps? if my pc suddenly decides to drop to 100 fps, i ll apply for the refund of it

I have an average pc from 2014. Absolut no fps drops etc on cache. You are the problem
2020-01-30 10:40
Thats because you're too shit at the game to notice. I have i7 8700K @ 4,9ghz and gtx 1080. Even then new cache is (atleast was) a problem.
2020-01-30 11:16
Nope I can see my fps during match. It is equal to all other maps. I have i5 3470 and AMD rx 480 You are the problem.
2020-01-30 12:44
Then clearly you are not paying enough attention to it lets say for example near connector. But your PC is so fucking garbage its not capable of running any map up to my liking. I could never play with that shit. Obviously the drops are kinda percentual. Your avg fps is 100 lower to begin with, so the drops ain't going to be so big lmao.
2020-01-30 13:06
You are the problem.
2020-01-30 14:20
Lmao, you don't even know of better so you don't know your game looks like garbage compared to what it could be.

North America yobitchcheese 
All the remakes just look bad honestly. Not just losing frames but the whole look of them is bad. Cartoonish.
2020-01-30 03:53
+1 New cache is so bad compared to the old one, old nuke was better to imo.
2020-01-30 03:59
Portugal DeviphZ 
new nuke is way better, way more brighter, makes it feel better in my eyes
2020-01-30 04:11
I hate how all the reworks are brighter. I like them looking dirty and darker like they originally did. New ones feel cartoonish with the brightness.
2020-01-30 04:33
Finland JooonsMO 
All remakes except cache are better imo. Jep the look cartoonish and not so "dirty" but you can spot enemies easier.
2020-01-30 10:25
many map of them didn't look dirty and dark originally, it's just CSGO thing. e.g. 1.6 dust2 was really bright and not dirty at all.
2020-01-30 10:30
Portugal DeviphZ 
but they're way better that way... it's way easier to spot people and makes the maps look way better
2020-01-30 23:40
New nuke is waaaaaayyy better, its the best remake they have done. New d2 is slighty worse but hej its nearly the same they didnt fuck that up. Bench to mirage i expect will be better. New inferno is defiantly worse then old inferno. New cache so far is better but its too early to call that. On Train im undecided.
2020-01-30 11:50
Portugal DeviphZ 
i can't say d2 is a good map, but i disliked d2 anyway before, but one of the main problems in these map is the mid doors, i feel it is way easier for a t to shoot a ct in the beginning of the round... i think inferno is better because it is way cleaner, but right now needs one or two changes cache is just a better version of the old map, so i can't really say nothing about it i don't like train at all, feels like a bad map overall, b site has so much "dead" space... A is too close quarters for a game like cs, it's just not my type of map
2020-01-30 23:44
Kinda agree with you on train. The old train map looked shit but had a lot less dead space and such. I think new train needs some simplisity back from old train.
2020-01-31 03:02
Portugal DeviphZ 
true, train could be a way better map if it was well spaced out
2020-01-31 03:54
Sweden ConaN007 
New nuke is definitely better dude.. it's just nostalgia
2020-01-30 04:16
Nuke is the worst remake.
2020-01-30 12:19
I've played the new cache twice and I think I am done with it. Don't like it at all. I stopped playing nuke after the update as well. I just don't like it. Inferno took some time but I like it. Dust 2 was the least impacted by the rework and still a champ. Cobble is a disease ridden diaper now.
2020-01-30 04:34
New cache is absolutely shit though, so.... There's that.

African Union mikecool 
I liked old train tbh too
2020-01-30 04:38
I like new train but its the same issue. The feel of the old train was so much better. Its too cartoonish looking/feeling. I like not having too heavens. Train before was a 12-3ish map now its 11-4/10-5 so it is more balanced without losing it being a ct map.
2020-01-30 04:40
That’s obviously just nostalgia, if anything the graphics are better now so it looks less cartoonish
2020-01-30 10:01

True, i agree with that. The nostalgia is strong.
2020-01-31 10:33

im looking forward to b executes on d2 with window and door smoked from tunnels and before you know and without seeing it coming full blind because (same as smokes) they throw it from inside the tunnel xD before youre able to react or throw a molo youre basically fucked becauuse your help from mid is smoked off and when youre able to see again theres 5 people looking at you xD
2020-01-30 02:52
Not same thing, but similar to 1.6 famous B rush, very difficult to hold! Really like that, today CTs are taking fast control of the bomb and after that we need to attack other spots before focus in B! Old times everybody was specialist in B site retake! That will probably be required again!
2020-01-30 03:32
b rush is literally impossible these days until the enemies are fucking bots, but maybe this can change things in D2
2020-01-30 09:29
I tried throwing shit through the skybox to B but all that shit landed on the roof or came back flying to me. I need some homeless looking or east european Youtuber to show me how to throw it or this will never work.
2020-01-30 11:46
France SplEEnx 
@areumadcosimnot I share your feelings, but please be respectfull with Nadeking, he has saved me many hours running around maps. Now I think that they have to remove the gap between the mid doors, because if the T manage to easily tag or shot a crosshing ct + they can pull out a big execute on B, b will be undefendable. Which will make Dust2 heavily T sided as B is already the most hard side to retake
2020-01-30 13:40
Kinda agree with a compensation for ct B players but mid doors is not it. Mid doors gap is essneital to d2 iconic chemistry. Besides smoking mid doors works just fine. So what else can you think off?
2020-01-31 03:09
1.6 famous wallbang spot from B site to tunnel? Remember? Feel old yet?
2020-01-30 13:17
Yes behind cAr, i remember. Perhaps that should be brought back as a wooden wall or something. So it would be just as bangable in csgo . Compensating for opening up B skyboxes for Ts.

You could also "self-boost" yourself to window through short and ladder room.

But now you don't have to make any noise (not as loud as breaking the metal in the entrance anyway)

Argentina kratoS_fsa 
I think it makes noise when u jump from the bench..
2020-01-30 13:23
with good movement it doesn't make much noise and it will often be masked if you have teammates anywhere else on the map shooting AKs
2020-01-30 13:57
1 man controlling short, ladder room, connector and window at the same time while jumping? Maybe. If he has aimbot
2020-01-30 13:21
Not really, but it did made mid slightly t sided.

IMO, Mirage was becoming very CT sided, this could be a needed change, or it could be complete and udder trash, who knows?
2020-01-30 02:12
It could only go extreme ways. CTs would have to sacrifice alot of map control to protect that mid window. Tho I also think this could give T's some sort of false security.
2020-01-30 02:15
in pro matches the mid window always get a lot of attention. the person holding mid often just falls to jungle to hold for a boost in mid/late round so i dont think it changes that much
2020-01-30 10:41
United States fade4182 
I agrre
2020-01-30 02:16
In low ranks forget about mid as CT. Just put someone jungle holding both connector and window while the two guys on A make sure to hide from connector at any point. In pro CS it won't change that much thing.

yeah, of course, by stats, Brazil has more than 200 milions of population, but this doesn't display reality, cuz I live in a small town and there's no so much ppl, Brazil has no more than 200 milions of habitants, the earth is flat btw hahahahaha

dope update
2020-01-30 02:26
Ok, let's do a breakdown HLTV. Mirage - bench is now in two places. I'm assuming that jumping from bench to window would make a shit load of noise, so unless bad, don't get mad :) -addition of wallbang from palace to scaffolding. Seems rather useless. - t entrance to mid will render the Astralis top mid smoke useless. - b entrance being lowered is kinda weird. I don't know if that's going to affect holding from truck or peeking it faster. It will fuck up jump strafing from the corner. Dust 2 - I absolutely welcome This change. Some more smoke options and flashing will definitely help an execute. I don't car (vroom vroom) about other maps. Thank You my brothers.

2020-01-30 02:39
It's never coming. If they were going to nerf kreig it would have happened already I wish they would. I realize that they buffed it in the first place to make it so the AK wasnt the only viable T side rifle...but they overdid it
2020-01-30 02:53
err the krieg was never buffed, it simply got a reduced price thats back to were it originally was the gun is the same since csgo launched, its just that dumb people cant pretend it doesnt exist anymore because the smart ones started using it, so really theres no overdoing it cause it never got buffed to begin with, it already was an op gun from the start
2020-01-30 04:22
World Beard43 
Neither the Krieg nor the AK have changed. The balance is actually great too, they're getting very similar use with this price difference.

No it doesnt lol Fnatic also made valve change a map and not because of some smoke Astralis are the greatest because they won 4 majors not because valve got rid of their smoke

2020-01-30 04:47
So now T's don't get punished for trying to go for a boost that is really OP if successful but requires losing some map control by using players??
2020-01-30 04:56
itll make a loud noise
2020-01-30 10:41
It is possible to jump silently in CSGO, especially when run jumping onto boosts. This is similar to the inferno balcony boost from alt mid into apts. You can do that boost silently, and since that is possible, you should be able to do it with this too. I haven't tested the map but will later tomorrow.
2020-01-30 14:30

That middle boost is too op. By the way, they opened connector so you cannot hold it with a single smoke if I'm not wrong, while before with a couple of good smokes on C and window, you could get 30seconds of mid control really easy for T's. But if the middle jump is easy, is gonna be really hard to defend as CT when there's only 1-3 of them since they can come from every side at same time really easy. Can't wait to see pros playing this new "rework" because it doesn't look balanced at all.
2020-01-30 08:03
it barely makes any difference for cts. if you lose mid control you'll be holding short/window from a passive jgl spot as usual
2020-01-30 09:25
Europe twitchy_ 
If you're still 5vs5 it doesn't make a lot of difference, but if it's a 3vs3 for example and you see 2 on apps, the other 1 could come from window to kitchen really easy, when before, with 2 on B and 1 A you could still have some map control because someone coming from ladder to window would make noise. Even with 2ct vs 1t, he can come from the back now if you watch A and B from common spots, something that it was kind of complicated before. Btw, I'm not going to have an opinion until I see some tier1 teams playing this variation and see how the game changes for worst or better.
2020-01-30 09:32
if its 3vs3 you will have a mate in jgl. if its 2vs2 you will have a mate in jgl.

"Scaffolding close corner" I think it's to the camp spot right outside palace door. So you could be in palace and clear it with a wallbang so you don't need to check hard right as you exit palace.

btw watch trash players run out of jungle with knife out or not checking ladder room, also Ts on Dust 2 smoking themselves because they dont know how to throw smokes, or everyone is with their flashes out then you can just run in and kill all with P90.
2020-01-30 11:54
2 years late with dd2 sky box ahahhaha
2020-01-30 12:02
Adding more stuff on Mirage instead of fixing old bugs. Underpass one spot which causes you to be in stuck. B balcony next to bench you get stuck with wrong movement. T spawn to ramp there is little place which causes bomb to be stuck if dropped. Default box makes you stuck for a moment.

World breezy0 
this self-boost doesn't make any sense to me, really changes the map balancing. why even bring self-boosts in the first place? especially to old maps where it was never intended for one side to have something like that. hello valve? this is a team game not some callofduty shit.
2020-01-30 12:15
Window to short jump was never intended either, guess they rather add more stuff to give both an equal unfair advantage? They should rather remake Mirage completely and fix some stuff which you aren't supposed to do.
2020-01-30 12:18

I dont see it as dramatic, you can easily aim at the selfboost jump from upper ladder. or b short. will be interesting to see the bench used to counter the short boost behind the double crates.
2020-01-30 13:33
World breezy0 
okay i agree, it isn't as dramatic and i'm also interested to see how it plays out. but overall i'm against this design decision of "solo-boosts", it's against the philosophy of the game in my opinion. similar to how they removed "skill jumps" like on nuke silo.

Vertigo need a change soon. I like vertigo, but it still needs some more improvement for competitive. mid does almost nothing, and for the most part, it just rush a site with some nades.

now on mirage you need one man permanently sitting in ladder room to watch short, and ladder room.
