Updates to the Game

Something new in this game is the smoke reaction from bombs which can interact with the surrounding environment.

This smoke will have a reduced light effect on the surroundings, reduce visibility, and can also react to gunshots and explosions around it.

With this update to smoke, it provides a new experience in gameplay.

In the next update, player movements such as walking, shooting, and throwing bombs are no longer counted in the tick rate.

In CS:GO, all the things mentioned are still calculated at the tick rate which makes the response to this movement slower. But this has been overcome by the developers of this game.

In Counter Strike 2, the developer also provides a rating or ranking order for players. This order can be accessed globally, so that all players of this game can know the player with the highest points.

Players can also still use items they have collected in previous games CS:GO by accessing the Prime Status Upgrade version of Counter Strike 2 on Steam, so there is no need to collect items from the start.

The incorporation of advanced tactical features not only enhances gameplay but also suggests a potential evolution in CS2 boosting strategies.
