Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test March 31 Update Notes

Valve Releases CS2 Limited Test Update, but No New Invitations for Testing Period.

Today, March 31, Valve released an update for the CS2 Limited Test, introducing numerous improvements and bug fixes to the game. However, the update has drawn some criticism from the gaming community due to the low amount of CS2 invitations.

The update includes multiple network optimizations, UI improvements such as adding a Defuse Kit to the team equipment display, and various visual enhancements. The update also addresses some issues with Dust II (the only available map during this testing period), including clipping and materials adjustments and sealing rooftops to prevent unintended grenade and molotov placements.

Without further ado, you can find the patch notes below:

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
