In a new update post on the game’s official website, Valve has revealed what is inside the new CS: GO update. First up, players will now get a Healthshot for every 3-kill streak, if they don’t already have one. That’s the only update to CS: GO Deathmatch.

Then, Valve also made several UI improvements and tweaks, including adding all the CS: GO Major Championship winners to the Watch Tab. There’s also a UI fix in relation to Prime Status and importantly, Valve updated the default CS: GO crosshair when holding a knife.

Check out the notes for the new CS: GO update below:


  • Players now get a Healthshot for every 3-kill streak, if they don’t already have one.

User Interface:

  • Added winners of all CS:GO Major Championships to the watch tab.
  • Fixed a UI issue where non-Prime players appeared as Prime on ‘Looking to Play’ tab.
  • Friendly fire warning on crosshair is no longer tied to default crosshair and is now a separate option.
  • When holding a knife, the default crosshair will now behave like other crosshairs.
  • Fixed the purchase button for coupons being invisible in some cases.


  • Added logaddress_add_http_delayed command which allows tournament operators to delay http log data for subscribers.
  • Added most recently completed match token to the help site match history authentication code page for convenience.
