Beta changes go live in update

August 8th, 2017 01:02

The changes Valve have introduced in the Beta depot last week, including Tec-9 adjustments, crouch-jump bug fix, and removal of the silent jump, have now been applied to the main game.

Earlier this week, a Beta update was released by Valve, which perhaps most importantly addressed the crouch-jump bug, thanks to which players were able to spot over various objects without being seen.

Apart from that, the update that is now live in the main game includes significant adjustments to the Tec-9's accuracy and ammo, which is Valve's first step towards "emphasizing skillful use" of pistols.

Here is the changelog of today's update:


  • Shipping initial changes to pistols with the goal of emphasizing skillful use of the weapons, beginning with the Tec-9.
  • Tec-9: The Tec-9 has been adjusted to emphasize aiming while retaining the weapon’s high mobility. The current changes include:
    • slightly improved accuracy when taking a single shot
    • significantly reduced accuracy when firing rapidly
    • magazine and reserve ammo reduced to 18 and 90, respectively
  • Extended the existing camera height restriction system to include cases where a player is in the air, preventing the first-person camera from rising above their third-person head.
  • Players will now make a landing sound if they un-crouch while crouch-jumping.
  • Fixed several inconsistencies where sounds were not broadcast when a player was occluded by a wall. (Thanks, simpleavaster!)


  • Cleaned up the way CS:GO launches so there is one fewer process

oh ma gawd whai u take away my broken mechanic stop it volvo
2017-08-08 10:25
It's no more broken than shiftwalking and it's been there since CS1. Learn to play.
2017-08-09 11:49
Yes, obviously making no sound while jumping is as broken as making no sound while watching your step. And since Volvo made no attempt to fix it until now, it should remain in the game forever. How wrong I was
2017-08-09 16:31
I don't know if it now makes a sound when you climb a low edge or drop down from one if you uncrouch, but if it does, that's retarded and hinders movement, and if it doesn't, then tje system is arbitrary and inconsistent. Uncrouching reduces the fall height. Low fall height means no sound. It's always been like this. Why are you so bad at CS?
2017-08-09 18:07
why do you need broken mechanics to play cs? cant win without magical fall height reduction? sucks to be you

I love these "people have been complaining statements" - can't be proven but sounds super awesome.
2017-08-08 12:45
Of course it can be proven. Just look at the beta patch note threads here and on reddit. It's right there.
2017-08-09 11:52
yeah thats what I mean. Complainers will always be louder than supporters. Do a survey, make it scientific - then I believe you.
2017-08-09 19:09
I wouldn't get any response if I tried to make a survey. But there are no suppprters who understand what the change means. Everyone's just confused it with the jump bug, or if they've played CS for more than a week or can read they're annoyed.

I'm not sure if I'm actually in favor of that but deagle running accuracy needs a nerf. It's an extremely skillful weapon but that part is just broken.

no learn to read the spamming was dealt with "keep the weapons high mobility" now you cant spam it atleast and thats good now u opponents have to hs you and if they do well thats fine its only 1 shot 1 kill on very close range so play range vs it

Actually its more Broken now lmao
2017-08-08 05:39
No, it's just not noob friendly anymore. If your aim was good, and never really spammed the pistols, you shouldn't notice a difference. Only the people who blindy spammed their way trough with the blatant accuracy of a rock and mamaged to shoot you up, those people going to actually have to learn to aim now.
2017-08-08 07:01
I'm on vacation, so haven't tried it, but I was like;why the fuck do people complain? This buffed the tec in my opinion.. Have you tried it? Do you feel it's better?
2017-08-08 09:27
Imagine the deagle and the glock had a kid. That is the tec-9 now. First bullet is accurate as fuck, second bullet basically goes behind you. I'll probably just start using the p250 tbh, the tec-9 is useless in all of these situations: If they have full hp If they are close quarters and you miss the first shot If you encounter more than one person at the same time you're fucked
2017-08-08 10:56
p250 has always been a great pistol :) especially for tapping. two bullets kill opponent if you can aim
2017-08-08 12:41
Your right, but the first bullet of a p250 is accurate-ish (long range it isn't really), second bullet is okay, and the rest are just no where near your crosshair, You have to shoot very slow, (still faster than the tec, but still not ideal)
2017-08-08 13:04
I've never spammed pistols and my aim is decent, but you really cannot tap the tec-9 as fast as you think. It's easier to tap once, quick switch to your knife and back to the tec9 and take another shot instead of tapping

You're a fucking idiot. Windows is shit compared to any Linux distribution you autist. Not everyone is a fat, ginger cunt with yellow teeth like you that spends half his day playing fucking video games.
2017-08-08 15:11
"Windows is shit compared to any Linux distribution you autist." What is the most commonly used OS? What OS is installed on the MAJORITY of PCs out there? Windows. What OS has the least official support from big software companies? Linux distros, What OS sucks for gaming? Linux does What OS sucks for graphical design / editing? Yup, linux Linux has its uses. Gaming isn't one of them. It's useless for almost all practical uses for the day to day user and has a select few things that gives it an advantage in the industrial world. Fuck off and learn something before calling me an autist on a discussion which you clearly know nothing about with your sand nigger education
2017-08-08 15:21
Syria polaker 
I'm a computer scientist, I definitely know better than some retarded yellow teeth. Linux, especially Ubuntu is much better to user daily than windows. It is much faster, requires less resources and supports a lot of applications a casual user might want to use. On top of all that it is so much more secure than windows. Most of the time you don't even need an anti-virus because of the way Linux is designed and the way it manages resources. Go back to your shitty little computer science circle in your primary school you dumb fuck.
2017-08-08 15:24
What qualifications do you have in computer science? My guess is none. Ubuntu requires less resources - correct Ubuntu is much faster - Completely subjective to the platform that it is been run on Ubuntu supports many applications a casual user might want to use - Windows supports ALL applications a casual user will want to use, pretty much other than stuff exclusively developed by apple - People who require this will own an apple PC obviously. Part of the reason ubuntu is so "secure" is because no one wastes time developing tools to target it because no one fucking uses it
2017-08-08 15:27
Syria polaker 
No it's not. The reason it is so secure is because a non root user can't do shit. In Linux's lifetime there has only been a few exploits such as the shell shock.
2017-08-08 15:29
"part of the reason". Also if you configure windows right, a non root user can't do a lot either. Yes they can do a lot more than linux root users, but linux is such a simplistic operating system that's completely understandable
2017-08-08 15:35
seeing as you seem to know a lot about linux vs windows, is linux at all good for gaming, and if so, what is the main difference compared to windows. Im a hardware noob
2017-08-08 19:50
Syria polaker 
Linux is shit for games becuase almost no company is willing to port the game for Linux. Afaik Linux doesn't support the best graphical libraries except for openGL which is pretty old. I'm pretty sure that if not this, Linux would be much better for games than windows. Releasing games for Linux is simply not worth it because as HighVoltage wrote, windows is used by most of casual computer users.
2017-08-08 19:56

at least on my machine i get almost 30+ fps on linux than on win10
2017-08-08 08:15
If that 30 fps makes a difference, then your hardware isn't up to scratch for the games you are playing. Also 30 fps is not worth the compromises you take from using linux
2017-08-08 15:22
Brazil r3qu13m 
and you right. but also on my notebook with a radeon 8850, i used to get 150 fps on windows and on linux i get 200-220 even though the amd linux drivers sux. i'm not saying you supposed to start using linux to increase your fps, but for my personal reasons, playing csgo was the only one i had to have windows in dual-boot.

You have a better chance now than u did before the change.
2017-08-08 12:39
You have 1 bullet that's going to be accurate. The rest is down to luck. Before that was not the case?
2017-08-08 13:03
Before it was easy to spam and be reasonably accurate, thats why everyone complained. Now its much harder to spam, your slow tap is more accurate thus supporting skilled players. So its closer to a deagle, which means to a skilled player its more dangerous vs rifles than it used to be.
2017-08-08 13:10
It is supporting skilled players, but it's more about less supporting noobs than supporting skilled players. More has been taken away from shit players than has been given to good players, Even if you hit that first bullet, it's highly unlikely you are going to hit a follow up before a rifle kills you and if there is more than one player you are fucked

waiting till valve will find a brain in trash can, and realise that cz must have 300$ kill reward instead of 100$

Hi guys, today I played couple of MMs and all was fine, till I started getting between 30-50% loss in every valve server - matchmaking/casual/dm. On every other NON Valve server I have 0% loss. Few games that I played one teammate had the same problem aswell. It gotta be something related to Valve. Any solutions?
