In the latest CS:GO patch, Valve made a few additions while removing some maps from matchmaking. Chlorine and Jungle have been removed from official matchmaking and Mutiny and Swamp have been added. 

Trusted Mode, which blocks third-party files from interacting with the game, will also be the default launch mode. With this update, there’s a new compatibility launch option allowing third-party software to access the CS:GO game process. 

Decoy grenades also received an update to show the correct amount of damage to teammates if they’re thrown by another teammate who switched teams or disconnected. 

Here are all of the updates in July 23’s patch notes:

Trusted Mode
