The CS2 development team has recently released a comprehensive update, dated June 30, 2023. In an attempt to provide a more stable and enjoyable gaming experience, they have launched several corrections and improvements in areas such as map adjustments, buy menu fixes, loadout functionality, and miscellaneous gameplay enhancements.

  • Fixed rare cases where bullets would not follow spray pattern.

[ Maps ]

  • Added Office to Deathmatch and Casual game modes.
  • Removed Mirage.

[ Audio ]

  • Added distance effects to all positional sound sources.
  • Improvements to 3d sound processing.
  • General mix tweaks and improvements.
  • Fixed bug where sometimes sounds would not respect the occlusion values of surrounding geometry resulting in sources appearing closer than what they were.
  • Fixed missing low frequencies at certain distances away from sound sources such as grenades and weapon fire.
  • Fixed a bug where some sounds would be slightly louder or quieter depending on the listeners orientation.
  • Added music cues to Match Accept and Loading screens.
  • Added unique audio occlusion layer to help with vertical sound positioning in Nuke.

[ Animation ]

  • Grenades can now be inspected.
  • Improved healthshot animations
  • Improved inspect behavior for various weapons

[ Movement ]

  • Fixed cases of unintended slow crouch/uncrouch.
  • Bunny hopping feel should now closely match CS:GO running at 128 tick.
  • Added convar sv_jump_spam_penalty_time to allow fine tuning of bunny hop feel.
  • The readout for cl_showpos has been enhanced to show the maximum speed of the last 3 seconds; this number is in parenthesis on the ‘vel’ line
  • Players can no longer jump at the end of warmup time

[ Networking ]

  • Sending game delta frames is now asynchronous, reducing dedicated server main thread CPU usage, thus reducing probability of dropped ticks.

[ Misc ]

  • Fixed a case where a holstered weapon would be rendered on a dead player
  • Added a team-agnostic equip icon for inventory/loadout item tiles
  • When possible, switching to spectator mode will default to in-eye spectating
