CS:GO update changes economy, adjusts CZ and Tec9

- Emergenceingame

Valve has released a new CS:GO update to tweak CZ and Tec9, and also introduced changes to the in-game economy.

The key gameplay change is Valve’s economic adjustment in the first half of the half. This means that the team that loses the pistol round will receive $1900 instead of $1400, and the subsequent losing rounds will receive $2400, $2900 and $3400, which is the same maximum loss bonus as before. By giving the losing team more money at first, Valve wanted to “reduce the impact of the pistol round on subsequent rounds”.

CZ has also been tweaked slightly to “encourage semi-automatic fire at medium and long range,” while Tec9 has been buffed up so that the weapon “has a better average rate of fire.” In addition, the price of both the SG553 and the AUG has been reduced to help these two guns be used more in competition.

Here is the full changelog of the update:


  • Adjusted first half economy with the goal of reducing the impact of winning the pistol round on subsequent rounds.
  • In Competitive Matchmaking, both teams now start the round with a pre-calculated loss of 1 round and will be reset on the next winning round. Instead of $1400, the team that lost Round 1 will get $1900, and $2400 after that, etc.
