The myth map of Counter Strike is being renewed

Dust2 released for the original Counter-Strike in 2001.

But Dust2 has been out of CS:GO's Active Duty rotation since earlier this year, taking the game's most iconic map out of the tournament scene.

Valve made the announcement via a tweet.

Dust II is finally returning to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) in a "refined" state that includes changes specifically targeted at the competitive crowd. The latest CS: GO update rolled out last week (October 5) but it did not bring any considerable changes.

A new version of Dust2 will be ready for testing in the next beta depot, and the team have even provided a snazzy look at the upcoming rework.

The new update aimed to retain the same tactical map that was so loved by the community but gives it a much-needed facelift.

The B bomb site has been changed to move the busted vehicle further away, "allowing a more free player flow around it", Valve said.

The Dust II remake, as with any time you try to make changes to a fan-favourite, will be divisive.

Cover has also been adjusted, with popular cover spots being shifted or removed to promote increased player flow while traveling around the map.

With all of the map updates, Valve has also chose to treat fans by overhauling the villains of Dust II, the Leet Krew.
