CS:GO update adds sound changes

A new CS:GO update has shipped, build version 1.35.3.7, which adds a few important sound changes that will affect competitive play and also sees Prime matchmaking enter a playable phase.

A new CS:GO update has officially gone live and while last week's update was mainly directed towards a few interesting map changes, this week's update kicks into gear a new theme of planned sound changes to the game.

With a mention of progressing "through the rest of the arsenal over time," the developers have tweaked gun noises in the Heavy category first, targeting the Negev, M249, and MAG-7.

In addition, a new sound cue for shooting with low ammo will play. However, most importantly, the smoke sound has been tweaked in order to be more distinct from the defuse sound, which should increase the rarity of "ninja defuses."


The sound changes are what matter most to us but these also can't hurt

For more casual and cosmetic fans of the game, a new Gamma case has launched which brings with it new knife finishes and weapon skins.

Finally, the Prime Matchmaking Beta is now playable, meaning that players who have linked their telephone numbers to their CS:GO account can presumably enjoy higher quality matchmaking services.

The full changelog for the update can be found below:

[CS:GO]

  • Added new Gamma weapon case featuring 17 community-created weapon finishes and all-new knife finishes.
  • Operation Wildfire Access Pass is no longer available for purchase.

[XP]

  • New CS:GO players will get a significant earned XP boost multiplier in Recruit and Private Ranks.
  • Competitive matchmaking for new CS:GO players is now unlocked sooner, as soon as they rank up from Recruit to Private Rank 2.

[PRIME BETA UPDATE]

  • CS:GO accounts will be Prime if they have verified their phone number and achieved at least Lieutenant Rank 21 or have earned a Service Medal.
  • Prime accounts can now select to search only for other prime accounts in competitive matchmaking.
  • When matchmaking with a party lobby, all party members must be Prime to have the Prime-only option available.

[SOUND]

  • New sound cue for shooting with low ammo.
  • Upgraded sound fidelity, reduced distortion for Mag7, M249, Negev.
  • New smoke sound to reduce interference with bomb defuse sound.
  • New sound for text chat messages in party lobby.

[MISC]

  • In classic game modes any money earned by a player mid-round will no longer be available for spending during the same round (i.e., SMG purchases are no longer possible during competitive pistol rounds).
  • Suicide or disconnect compensation will no longer be awarded in warmup or during freezetime period.
  • When controlling the bot and surviving round running out of time, the controlling player is now eligible to receive end of round money.
  • Removed a legacy 2.5 seconds spawn grace period for players who reconnect to the round after freezetime is over.
  • Increased upper limit on possible mp_halftime_duration values to 5 minutes.
  • Added server convar sv_spec_post_death_additional_time that allows adding a delay for spectators between the death of a spec target and the switch to a new target.
  • The convar sv_alltalk has been replaced with sv_talk_enemy_dead and sv_talk_enemy_alive.
  • Classic Casual now defaults to team-restrict communication for living players.

[MAC]

  • Fixed appearance of fonts in the community browser and console.
  • Fixed some bugs with setting fullscreen resolution.
  • Set all Mac players to use Raw Mouse Input by default since this is a better experience for most players. Players can manually revert to not using raw mouse input if that is what they prefer.

Seriously WHO THE FUCK ASKED FOR THIS??? One of the things that makes CS the FPS with the highest skill ceiling is to learn to count your bullets, know when to reload, when not to reload... They're trying to make it more noob friendly; up next is to implement auto-aim because noobs can't aim very good.

What do you even mean, who asked for this? What does it matter what the community thinks? Decisions are made for the benefit of the game, based on statistics and current meta game. If it was up to the community, we'd be playing 1.6 with nicer textures.

The low ammo sound is a terrible idea. Keeping track of ammo is part of the job of the player, he doesn't need to be helped at that, it's part of the tasks he has to keep in mind, period.

2016-06-16 07:44
I haven't tried the update yet, but it looks good. Except for two things. The reload clicking sound is just so unnecessary and if you die because of low ammo you deserve to die. Simple as that.. Secondly, I am not into skins _that_ much but it's better not to add skins at all than to add already implemented ones on different weapons imo. Like glock Wasteland Rebel, or p250 asiimov and btw shouldn't it be an an arabic kind of similarity of the text (on the wasteland) I know that it is hard to figure out new skins but this just shows that valve only care about the $, "hey everbody like's the dragonlore, let us use in on a different weapon". For the knives, Freehand and gamma doppler would be enough.

Stop crying... You will get used to it anyways. The New sounds are way better than the old ones. The clicking is weird but adds a New Importen Part to the game. The New knifes are sick and some okay, no ugly ones imo. The other skins are okay ish some look dope and some others like garbage, as usual They should also change the min. Level back to 3. The only ones Who care about that are smurfs and cheaters
2016-06-16 08:52
There should be an option to disable the clicking sound.

"New sound cue for shooting with low ammo" is so shit
2016-06-16 10:55
"When controlling the bot and surviving round running out of time, the controlling player is now eligible to receive end of round money." good change. as for sound change, how about we actually play to see (hear) the changes before dismissing it. although I have to why do we even "need" it, and what's the purpose?
2016-06-16 11:16
How to get ride of this update : In the console, type volume 0. profit.
2016-06-16 11:43
The point of the low ammo sound I think refers more to enemy hearing it and not you. thus say you are behind a door and spraying rounds your enemy can hear when its time for you to reload and make his move.
2016-06-16 11:50
the smoke update is the only nice thing
2016-06-16 11:51
If they decreased the volume of the reload clicks, and made it increase as your number of bullets approach zero that may make a cool global sound (Edit: this is essentially a CS:GO equivalent to squib loads, except applied to every gun. lol). As of right now, it just seems like an idea the developers had that hasn't been fully thought out yet. On the other-hand, they've finally admitted that the sound in game needs work and will be releasing a string of patches. You kids are spoiled with all of the CS game-updates you receive. :(
2016-06-16 12:07
nice...
2016-06-16 12:06
I like the new sounds :(
2016-06-16 12:09
Used to be pros listen and count the amount of bullets one sprays and times it just right to catch the guy off guard, now it's not even a challenge lmao. keep getting rid of something pros used to practice and perfect over time and make it easier for new players go get good, just lmaoing@valve

clearly with the backlash they received from the r8 they didn't ask anyone outside valve, look how fast that was patched and now no one uses the r8 except obvious trolls. the research I mean is being more involved with the pro scene when it comes to updates, see what the pros really want, they are one of the big reasons for cs is as popular as it is now.
2016-06-16 15:47
its fucking impossible to play with this smoke sound

The smoke sound is awful, but it doesn't fade out until the effect wears of. Depending on where you are, you won't be able to listen to defusing sound, incresing a lot the possibilities of ninja defuses. I can live with that, and kinda like it.

I love em both, but 1.6 is a way better game, GO is more polished and has some nice features that 1.6 difnt have. But at its core 1.6 is better, but times are a changing and we must move on. Sad thing is, that it wouldnt take much effort from valve to make GO as god as 1.6, just listen to the community, but its all about skins today

Would be super important game changing mega hyper cool feature. And now to play overwatch (?) Did I sound bitter? My first post here so I might be as accurate as cs go first bullet (excl. aug).

every update makes this game even worse. like srsly do they even think about those changes before releasing them? Every time I see that they released a new update I pray to god that they are Not trying to change smth crucial in the game, because I know that they will ruin everything they touch. This hitbox change was prolly a one in a million update that actually helped the game.

2016-06-17 18:14
I think that this is a nice update. Got complimented for killing someone on DM with last bullets in mag. Anyway makes keeping track of bullets in mag more intuitive and adds more context to gunbattles for making it obvious when someone is about to run out of bullets. Actually is a big help to me, because I often vary in between tapfiring and spraying, so I can't be sure when I'm about to run out of bullets in heat of battle. Anyway I think that it's win-win, for both weapon user and enemies. Lowered skill ceiling? Well ok, I understand. But I like the update as someone who never attained the so called skill for mentally counting my own bullets.
