Counter-Strike 2 September 28 Patch Notes, Details and more

If you’re a fan of CS2, you’ll be pleased to know that the game’s developers have rolled out a new update on September 28, 2023. This update brings a host of changes aimed at improving the player experience. The update covers a wide range of issues, from bug fixes to graphics improvements and gameplay tweaks. Here’s a breakdown of what’s new and what it means for players.

Players will notice one of the more immediate changes in the sound department. The developers have fixed the issue where win, loss, and MVP music was missing in Casual mode. Now, you can enjoy the auditory experience as you play, making each win or loss more impactful.

Animations, particularly those related to grenades, have been adjusted. The new changes aim to reduce view obstruction when throwing a grenade, making gameplay smoother and more enjoyable. A quirky bug where players float slightly above the ground after spawning has also been corrected.

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.
