Without a doubt the biggest map changes in the new CS:GO update patch notes released on 16th June 2022 has to be for Ancient, the newest Active Duty map.

Before we get to the Ancient changes, there's one gun nerf. Valve has nerfed the M4A1-S, reducing the gun's magazine size to 20 bullets, with 80 in reserve.

While this might not seem like a big deal to casual players, this is the first time Valve has decided to nerf a popular CS:GO weapon in ages.

Ancient has only been part of the Active Duty Map Pool for CS:GO esports tournaments for the past year or so, and there are still some issues to sort out.
