CSGO Update Introduces 1-vs-1 warmup mode, 7 New Music Kits, and Map Changes

Friday's CSGO update also enables players to copy other's crosshairs.

A new update was shipped for CSGO on Friday. Other than several significant map changes, the update included 7 new music kits after which the update is named “Change Your Tune“.

The most notable thing in this update is, however, the new and revised warmup mode. Currently only available in the wingman maps of Vertigo and Train, players will be spawned in 1v1 arenas during warmup. The blog post mentions that the new mode “may be added to other maps and Competitive Matchmaking in the future.”

Another new thing introduced through this update is the ability to copy any observed player’s crosshair. “Wondering how your teammates see the world? As a spectator you can now view other players’ crosshairs.” To copy another player’s crosshair players can simply go to the scoreboard and select the name of the player whose crosshair they want to copy.
