Dust 2 CS:GO Map to become available in Fortnite
Arguably the most popular CSGO map, Dust 2 will soon be available to all Fortnite players.
Fortnite might be controversial to some but one thing is for certain and that is the popular CS:GO map, Dust 2, will be making an appearance within the game very soon.
This is possible with huge thanks to Team Evolve, who are one of the leading designers for custom maps and who are responsible for creating a full-scale Dust 2 map for Fortnite lovers to try out for themselves.
More than 20 years has passed since the map was first created and it was featured on the original Valve title, Counter-Strike. Since its inception, Dust 2 has captured the hearts of many and has been recreated by a host of savvy map designers, across numerous platforms.
Dust 2 isn’t the first cross-title map to make it into Fortnite. The game has seen implementations of the Rainbow Road from Mario Kart, a stage from Super Smash Bros. and even Terminal from Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
With the Fortnite revamp of Dust 2, players can expect the same cartoon style that we’ve grown to associate with the game, with every detail from the original map, carefully and meticulously included.
Crate locations are all exactly the same as to how we remember them on both bomb sites and you can even find the iconic white car exactly where a careless driver once left it, on B.
It is worth noting that the developer of the new map purposely left out the Arabic text which appeared on signs. This is likely to stray away from the terrorists vs counter-terrorists, and to make the map more age-friendly.
As close as the map might have been created to the original, it goes without saying that the playstyle of the two games are completely different. CS:GO focuses on teamwork and surgical precision-like aim. Whilst some of these features are still important within Fortnite, the Battle-Royale style free for all, has 4 different classes which work around providing friendly buffs or debuffing enemies.
One key role stays the same, however, which is that players will still need to carry bombs to their destinations in order to win the game, whilst the enemy team will be doing everything in their power to stop them.
