Valve have released a new update, which brings, among others, changes to the User Interface, the GOTV and two weapons of CS:GO.

Following tonight’s update, Revolver and Negev are no longer a part of the available weapons on competitive matchmaking. While the first has had its “firing delay significantly reduced”, the latter has a new sound, a “reduced price” and “new attributes” that increase its suppressive fire.

A new “recent teammates and invites” User Interface has been added to the main menu. From now on, it is also possible to connect with others “using CS:GO friend codes”.

As for the GOTV, its connections will now have Steam Datagram Relay – which is basically a protocol that not only prevents DDoS attacks but can also guarantee the best quality for the viewer – in “most of the regions”.

Besides some crashes and minor fixes, the new map Canals has also suffered some adjustments as you can read in the official changelog:
