CS2’s latest update improve sub-tick timings and animation errors

Published on

In the latest patch for Counter-Strike 2 (CS2), several gameplay improvements have been implemented, including sub-tick timing enhancements for grenade throw animations and revolver firing.

Additionally, a missing fire effect for molotovs held by players has been addressed. Animation adjustments involve reducing torso rotation, enhancing hit reactions, and making jump animations directional. Character posing while aiming, running, and deploying has also seen improvements.

Several map-specific fixes have been made for Nuke, Mirage, Office, Vertigo, Anubis, and Ancient, ranging from cubemap and hole fixes to clipping adjustments and sound enhancements. Overall, the update aims to refine various aspects of gameplay, animation, sound, and maps to provide a more polished gaming experience.
