CS:GO update 21st January: Retakes fixes and Apollo map changes

On 21st January at roughly 01:00 GMT, developer Valve has released a new CS:GO update. While many fans might be upset these smaller updates do not provide new content or even a fix to the long-standing FPS issues, Valve continues to improve the game set-by-step.

New CS:GO update: Retakes & Apollo map fixes

In the latest CS:GO update released on 21st January, Valve made some decent quality-of-life improvements and fixes.

For example, the developer fixed settings search UI for non-Latin languages and updated the AK-47 | Anubis Wear Alpha weapon skin.

There's also some great news in the update for Argentinian fans, as Valve added official game servers in Argentina.

The biggest list of changes and fixes in the new CS:GO update, however, are for the Retakes game mode, as well as the Apollo map.


Retakes fixes & improvements:

  • Improved loadout cards assignment logic.
  • Fixed a crash when players change teams during freeze time.
  • Enemy loadout card no longer provides enemy pistol.
  • Fixed a rare case when an extra C4 could spawn.

Apollo map fixes & changes:

  • Fixed issues with the previous update
  • Made glass breaking more consistent 
  • Replaced and realigned textures
  • Fixed some gun stuck spots
  • Deleted upsetting bench
  • Realigned some assets
  • Deleted some cans people thought were smoke grenades
  • Fixed boost spots
  • Reduced assets in giftspot and other general optimizations for lower-end computers

Despite not being a big new CS:GO update which adds any content, it is great to see Valve continue to improve the massive esports title. 

Argentinian CS:GO fans should be especially happy with official servers for their country being added in the new update.
