Counter-Strike: Global Offensive had a big makeover thanks to the creative hands of the modders. As a result, CS:GO now has a refreshing look in addition to its new changing weather system. As a matter of fact, most of the players liked it so much that it now holds a five-star rating on the Steam WorkShop.
In the past, there have been numerous attempts to somehow add new weather patterns to CS:GO. Fortunately, Lewis Palfrey and Luke Millanta recently announced the first set of weather-altering maps in the whole history of the game.
CS:GO Weather Effects
At the start of each round, 10 unique weather patterns are going to be randomly selected to fit the environment of the game. Counter-Strike Global Offensive maps such as Dust2, Cache, Overpass, and Mirage have all been given an overhaul. The said maps will now feature thunder, rain, fog, and sandstorms.
In fact, all of the weather stated above can also change its intensities in addition to multiple special effects. That being said, rain will extinguish fire around the map and will eventually gather into puddles. On the other hand, heavy rain is going to be accompanied by intermittent lightning flashes that would definitely make the game more immersive.

According to one of the mod creators Millanta, he’s been playing CS:GO since 2005. However, a couple of years ago, he also got into modding. Surprisingly, Millanta is now making professional armament designs for major E-Sports teams such as Fnatic. In addition, he also works for the giant hardware makers namely Razer.
Millanta had the idea of adding a unique weather mod to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive back in August. Fortunately, Palfrey came in to help due to Millanta’s limited time in addition to his mapping skills not being advanced as Palfrey’s.
Furthermore, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive weather mod can be accessed through Steam WorkShop.
