New update resolves grenade inconsistency

Valve have shipped out a new update, which makes smokes, HE grenade explosions, and fire display consistently among all players.

The latest update is supposedly a response to a recent publicization of a command which allowed players to switch rotations of smokes and affected molotov, incendiary, and HE grenade explosions, causing the player to have an unfair advantage.

Meanwhile, usual inconsistencies between how smokes are displayed among players on a server, which also commonly differed from what spectators could see, has been a point of contention for years.

Smokes and other grenade explosions now display the same way among the players

Both issues have apparently been resolved today with an update featuring one of the shortest changelogs concerning gameplay, which simply states:

[GAMEPLAY]
– Smoke, HE Grenade explosions, and fire are now always displayed consistently between all players.

Would be interesting with statistics of smoke kills, luckily for Astralis it's not statistics that are calculated. Smoke kills are probably like 50% of CT side Inferno Astralis kills.

The more you spray the more you’re likely to connect. With csgos sound it’s even easier to land shots through smoke. Add a constant sound effect

Well this update patches a command that used to change the shape of smoke (client sided) which means you could turn any smoke into one way. Also you could see through mollys by spamming that same command as the molly would temporarily disappear.

one-way smoke is no exploit, it's just a variation of peeking through a hole. you can see them, then can't see you.
