Operation Wildfire brings back de_nuke, new knife

CS:GO Seth “sshogun” Sawant

After months of hype the latest operation is finally live, with the most anticpated map release in recent memory: the new de_nuke.

A whopping two gigabyte update to CS:GO hit today, which introduces the brand-new Operation Wildfire as well as the much-anticipated release of the reworked de_nuke, which has been out of the active duty pool for months. Wildfire introduces seven new maps to play, as well as the normal operation coin to track stats. Alongside this, Valve has released another knife type, the Bowie knife, as well as a massive list of bugfixes and community-requested changes. Check out the full change log below:
