Two new Counter Strike Global Offensive updates in the last week will change the way you play the game
Popular competitive first person shooter title CounterStrike Global Offensive is probably a staple for every PC gamer out there. How the game is played casually or competitively has been changed multiple times but now, with two new updates in the past week, it seems like the entire game has been changed.
Earlier this week, the first update added some changes to the SG 553 weapon on the Terrorist side of the game. The “Krieg”, a much loved weapon by players, has been nerfed like never before. Additionally, the update also added more accuracy to the Desert Eagle when fired while jumping.
Following the new update, the 553’s weapon rate of fire was nerfed so that it couldn’t be spammed by players, especially while crossing the Long doors on de_dust2. Apart from that, the weapon’s recoil pattern also underwent a change.
Some things just break the game
As for the Desert Eagle, CS:GO’s very own hand cannon, the gun practically became broken and players were abusing the new and forming meta that it was bringing. However, Valve was quick to respond with another update which once again nerfed jump accuracy on the Desert Eagle, making it more balanced than before.
Along with that, the second update this week also brought with it a feature which allows spectating players to see others crosshairs. This is honestly one of the much awaited features of the game.
This allows you to get a sense of how other players see the game and if you come across a really good player, the crosshair just might be completely different than yours. Essentially, this feature allows the casual gamer to see how different play styles can be.
