Trusted mode goes live in latest CS:GO update

After initial testing in a beta branch, Valve have pushed Trusted mode out to the live version of the game.

Valve had first added a "Trusted Launch" option to the game menu at the end of June in their latest effort to combat cheating in CS:GO. The mode, when enabled, would restrict third-party applications and software from interacting with the CS:GO client unless the drivers had been digitally signed by an Authenticode signature.

Following a trial phase, Trusted Launch has now been rolled out to all players by default. Users that launch the game with incompatible files will be greeted with a warning indicating what file is causing issues.

For players who may experience problems with the latest update, Valve have temporarily created a backwards compatible branch of the game, while those who wish to allow third-party software that is not digitally signed to interact with their game still have the option to launch the game in -untrusted mode at the cost of a reduced trust score and an inability to join VAC-enabled servers.

The complete patch notes can be found below:

[Trusted Mode]
– Players now launch CS:GO in Trusted mode by default
— While in Trusted mode, third party software will be blocked from interacting with CS:GO
— To allow third party software to interact with CS:GO, you can start the game with the –untrusted launch option. Note that in this case your Trust score may be negatively affected.
— A backwards compatibility label “1.37.5.9” is temporarily available for players experiencing difficulty launching the latest version of the game.
– If you are a third party developer, all of your DLLs that interact with CS:GO must be digitally signed.
— If your customers would like to use third party software that is not digitally signed, they can start the game with the –insecure launch option. Note that they will not be able to join VAC servers with this option.

[MISC]
– Fixed a regression to reenable twitch.tv streams in the “Watch tab”

The problems I had during beta: - Couldn't run Discord or Geforce Experience. - Had huge FPS drops (from 200 to 50). - Despite having trusted mode enabled, I still got matched with other players who didn't. Are these fixed now?
2020-07-09 09:38
it says trusted mode affects your trust score so it's not a different queue, it's a long run strategy that will drastically help increase your trust score grow. trust factor tho hehexd
2020-07-09 10:12
So basically it wont really Change anything for me, i only play mm with my friends and me and another one get reported most games so our trust factor will suck and we will continue ppaying cheaters just cause we carry our teammates every game...
2020-07-09 12:11
yep, me and my friend would top frag most of the time in global, we'd get reported constantly by salty kids and our trust factor plummeted on 2 different accounts up to the point where 4/10 people were blatantly cheating. valve's trust factor system is a fucking nightmare, once you go below average you're completely fucked and your game experience is ruined

No it was not. You cant bypass that shit in 15mins. Valve will most likely change the crypted signing frequently, meanin that even if you could somehow fake the password, it wouldnt work for long. Atleast this should mean no more cheap wallhacks
2020-07-09 02:01
Making cheating non-worthwhile is probably the best fix. The people who go through the effort of actually cheating will just drop down far enough into the trust factor that they'll eventually face other cheaters, with an increasing risk of being banned. Shouldn't we soon see the big wave of advanced cheating that everyone expected following the source code leak?
2020-07-09 02:34
Still baffles me that people with 35 kills and 95% headshots aren't autobanned immediately after the match already

Pros with highest hs percentage has around 60 in their tournament matches. What are you talking about. If you get that much kills with such hs percentage you are either cheater or global in silver mm smurfing
2020-07-09 10:15
I had so far 2 fucked up MM games where we were matched against 5 silvers (average around silver3) while we were on average LE. After 2 rounds they said they are silver but we all continued in one match. Had 90% hs this game as I tried to hit 100 %. It’s nightmare for Volvo to argue every case so they ban just if they are 99,999% sure or 100% they claim. Good choice in my opinion. Don’t want to lose my 20k € account for nothing. And is your argument that smurfer should be punished as heavily as literally cheaters? If that’s the case I can’t argue with you.

2020-07-10 15:58
I once had a game myself with 28 kills of which were 26 headshots. My main account was around LE at that time and I was playing on master guardian I or II. And I was just going for headshots and not cheating. So this would definitely ban innocent people. Stupid af.

Sorry but i had few such games thru the years im playing. I remember once in mirage as T had 22 kills in half with 21 HS and i ended up with 33 kills and 30 hs in the end of match. Did i cheat ? No, i just had a great game with a bit of luck. Of course everyone thought i was a cheater, even i would think so if someone had those stats. So, you cant ban someone because of stats
2020-07-09 13:16
Bro, noone is talking about "I had few such games in the past", we are talking about ppl averaging 95% hs most of the games they play. You argument makes no sense.
2020-07-09 13:40
He said " Still baffles me that people with 35 kills and 95% headshots aren't autobanned immediately after the match already " so please
2020-07-09 13:54
Well this point makes no sense, true. Though players with such average over extended number of matches are definately suspicious.
2020-07-09 15:01
Then we would have bans on people who weren't cheating. The goal of VAC isn't to ban as many people as possible, it's to make sure that everyone who does get banned actually was cheating. There's no way of getting VAC banned unless you were cheating. That's the goal of the system.
2020-07-09 14:49
I imagine theyll have everything encrypted from their servers making it harder to breach
2020-07-09 02:48
are you sure you understand how encryption works? the code needs to run on clientside so if it's encrypted on their servers it needs to be decrypted before executing so everyone just dumps it at that stage making the whole hurr durr everything encrypted scheme useless
2020-07-10 14:17
it really was though go ask any competent coder. Some didn't even have to change anything.
2020-07-09 03:00
Bro this update is useless. They basically banned an injection method that noone with more than 2 brain cells uses.

2020-07-09 07:49
You're a big dreamer bro. VAC doesn't catch anything, you could write cheats in a few minutes. It's so incredibly sad. I wanted to learn about this, and I can't believe how shit VAC is, I usually thought I'm playing against cheats, now I'm even more suspucious because it's so incredibly easy. fuck valve.

2020-07-10 11:40
changing the key doesn't do shit when everyone bypasses this clientside... if done properly, valve can't even see the patching so glhf with detection. then again, most coders are garbage so perhaps this will catch most of them
2020-07-10 14:19
bypass after 1 minute update. so easy
2020-07-09 09:21
A quick search on Github sadly seems to say it has been bypassed already, but it’s a small step in the right direction. Not sending the location of hidden enemies at all would also be great. Fingers crossed for more anticheat measures.

2020-07-09 02:08
me too, might even try a random mm again, i still remember when you could be slightly drunk and just want a good time in public servers and actually have a good time, hope we can get this back with this update. cs used to be a place where you could escape solo/alone just to have a good time and forget about everything
2020-07-09 02:32
Frequent MM player here. SoloQ is abismal for me but with a 5-man it's thoroughly enjoyable. Then again we smash any opposition just through sheer teamwork being a 5-stack. I have a good trust factor, and I haven't faced any blatant cheaters in months, no spinbotters in literal years. The trust factor system worked as far as I've noticed. People who think MM is riddled with cheaters probably need to stop flaming so much.
2020-07-09 02:37
I never flamed, I just had far too many bad experiences, im fine with ragers and even griefers, its mm its even entertaining sometimes. The only thing that bothers me is the amount of cheaters and how untouchable they seem to be. I am fine with all kind of personalities as long as they are playing with their own skill not external help. Then there are the obvious ones, what do you do, leave? I love cs and I want to play cs, but this made public unplayable for me in my rank
2020-07-09 02:50
Yeah I'm just astonished that me and the people I play with never run into blatant cheaters while a lot of people in the scene say they are everywhere and that it's a big issue. I mean sure there's the odd flick and running HS here and there but it's important to remember that I hit those same shots every now and then, relatively often actually. I never suspect cheating unless someone is visibly using some aim/movement assistance or if they do some nonsensical wallbang/grenade throw that indicates wallhack.
2020-07-09 02:55
You most likely faced a lot of cheaters and didn't realize it. At least not with that mindset. It's a very healthy mindset and I use the same. My friend doesn't and he'd go down to watch the demos. Clipped the stuff and from their pov they are so fucking obvious. We still smash them most of the time, but yeah. They are around. High trust factor does a lot tho. Seen way less super obvious hackers. When playing with low trust factor people it gets rough. Like 2/2 games getting consistently rekt through d2 doors before crossing. That kind of stuff almost never happens (despite luck) on high tf.
2020-07-09 09:09
Yeah very true. I just don't get mad anymore. A loss is a loss and I try to be friendly with everyone. It's made mm so much more enjoyable.
2020-07-09 14:50
I play mm almost every evening with 4 friends. I do enjoy mm and rarely encounter any cheaters. When i do suspect someone i check the demo and most of the time I'm wrong. I play mm at dmg, le, lem. And at this rank with our good trust factor there seems to be almost no cheaters. And I have never played against a spinbot during my whole mm "career".
2020-07-09 18:10
rank?
2020-07-09 03:07
LE, but even among the silvers and gold novas it was incredibly rare.

false flagging cheater detected
2020-07-09 03:09
Salty no-scener detected. Never cheated, wouldn't cheat, proud to be Swedish. I know a few people who have cheated, but even those are very few and don't often play CS, nor do they cheat regularly.
2020-07-09 03:11
I understand what you saying but have in mind this , ill give an example. Last year in a game ( and this happened 3-4 times ) one of my teamates got vac-banned from server so obviously was cheating. He got banned after we played like 10 rounds or so, so i was curious and downloaded our demo to watch him. I assure you, there was not one in a million years to tell he was a cheater. He was playing so normal and so careful that you couldnt tell at all. You see sometimes you have wrong accusations of cheating but sometimes man, it is so real and imo, that is where the problems begin. That you cant tell who is cheating and whos not anymore
2020-07-09 13:22
Yeah but does it really give you that much of an edge if you are so subtle? Out of those 10 rounds, how many did you win? And was he massively topfragging? Being subtle about cheating means that you won't get mindblowing results, like 95% HS rate with 20+ frags at halftime. And at that point, you're basically equal with a player with good gamesense and aim. At the point, it's not worthwhile.
2020-07-09 14:53
Well you think it is all about frag ? I mean , a good player all he needs is to know where are you and it is a sure win. He can call a good rotation and bam , round won without even expose himself. Also he can win duels 80% of the time without using aimhack , think about it. You know the angle of your opponent before you see him. Yes you might die sometimes but you got the upper hand , a kill like that and you won the round without the need of having 3-4 kills per round. It is not the noobs that are annoying with hacks , it is good players that are and you dont need mindblowing results to be a cheater and dictate the outcome. You can win a game with cheats and noone can tell. That is what makes cheats a pain in CSGO. Personally i dont have a problem with the obvious cheater that will ruin my game so he can have fun and spin like crazy while getting 5/5 headshots per round. It is the hacker mofo that will pretend is legit and call you a noob about calling him out while continues cheating. Also why you think there are so many cheaters in game ? They hiding it, that is why. They playing at the highest level and keep cheating. They will use it few times that needed and voila , you lost the game and overwatchers cant tell a thing !! Those are the scams of CSGO i despite most.
2020-07-09 18:00
Thing is though, if you win 80% of your aim duels, you would also get a lot of kills. I mean to be subtle about it you'd have to purposely lose some duels. And at that point, you might as well just play like an average player. Same goes for calling rotations and stuff. Anyone with a decent level of experience in this game could call a correct rotation most of the time. I guess the only appeal is that you'd save yourself all the work of getting hundreds of hours in the game.
2020-07-09 18:36
I agree. And that what is happening. How do you think PROs that got caught were cheating even in LANs ? They were hiding it, similar to all those cheaters in MM that cant be caught by overwatchers. I feel you beleive me, i know what you saying. All im saying is that there are cheaters who wont be noticeable except if VAC system catch them and still dictate games with one way or another, despite high frags or not. Few infos and few one on one duels or a clutch or two and you are 3-4 rounds down just like that. Again, i get what you saying i do not disagree its just that there are multiple levels of cheating aside frags and extraordinary stats that having the same result... lose the game.
2020-07-09 21:40
Yeah very true. But I feel Valve has done a lot of good things to stop cheaters. I mean, VAC, Overwatch, Trust Factor, Prime, VACnet (machine learning) etc. is a lot of anti-cheat measures, and it's also almost 100% accurate. No one gets innocently banned on CS:GO.
2020-07-09 21:44
I usually play mm incredibly stoned but my 4 mates that I 5 man stack with don’t mind carrying my sorry ass from time to time as it’s too much fun for them apparently

There are also people who buy cheats for thousands of euro. Cheats, used by people who cheat in mm, faceit & esea tournaments - that can obviously somehow bypass overwatch. It doesn't happen often, but sometimes I see people with a high steam level, knives, skins who cheat (i once had been playing against a guy who was legit-hacking with a dragon lore and streaming it on steam :DDDD)

coders and cheater will find the way for sure but I guess its rly big step
2020-07-09 01:27
I mean, it only blocked out the cheats with .dll injections, so the free ones. Every other cheat, that is undetected, all the spinbotters, and blatant aimbotters, with their 5$ cheats can still inject and play without a problem. It's not like Valve did some big update.
2020-07-09 15:46
So how it works?
2020-07-09 16:12
They just block out some overlays and .dll injections.
2020-07-09 16:25
I mean how cheats works if theres no ddl
2020-07-09 16:39
So finally there are no cheaters anymore ?
2020-07-09 01:28
There is, I haven't met much, because of good trust factor, but all this did was block out the free cheats from MPGH forums, which usually are not the problem, or what the cheaters use. Everything that is paid works, and external cheats that dont require .dll injections work too, even if free.

"If you would like to play while using third party software that interacts with CS:GO, launch with the –untrusted launch option. Note that in this case your Trust score may be negatively affected."

No vac, but if you want to cheat, you cant. Or you can, but only with the people who cheat too.
2020-07-09 02:15
Should be VAC any attempted form.of cheating should be banned.
2020-07-09 02:16
This update is not vac related. They just updated csgo to reject any unsigned modules from being loaded into the process. Also they cant hand bans when unsigned dlls try to get loaded because there are many legit programs that inject themselves into csgo which would lead to false bans.
2020-07-09 03:14
It should but it never will. Cheaters still make money to Valve so it would not make sense to get rid of them. I think its a really smart update. They keep cheaters away from clean players while still allowing them to play. Both sides win
2020-07-09 08:34
I just think it's also a smart why to not to ban potential pro cheaters.
2020-07-09 08:59
It blocks almost all of the free cheats you can find. You can't inject .dll files. I mean shit, you can't even use OBS anymore for streaming, unless you stream in windowed-fullscreen mode.
2020-07-09 15:42
Completely useless, I just played a game with that Trusted Mode shit turned on and there were 6 people with cheats, one of them from my team telling each round exactly where each of the rivals were. Amazing. And it's not because of my Trust Factor or shit, I usually get along well with my party mates so I doubt if I ever get a report for toxic. Surely my Trust Factor is high in addition to having Prime status for a long time, but nothing, 2 out of 3 games an obvious cheater.

For the people who say it doesnt work at all, it does. Maybe not against expensive private cheats, but it should render all free shitty wallhacks useless. I dont know about java based, but atleast most of shitty free cheats will not work, depending how frequently valve changes the signature. But who cars, there is no such thing as a "100% working anticheat". Best would be to start giving hw and ip-bans.

Your trust isnt good, its shit.
2020-07-09 14:24
That sounds like a YOU problem. That also sounds like big red trust factor. Because, I've played 10 out of 10 games, and did not have a single cheater, and that's in Global even.
2020-07-09 15:41
If i play with my friends who have good trust factor it doesnt give a warning at all. If i play with friends whom i know having a bad trust factor, it gives a warning about them.

2020-07-09 05:47
i created a new account to test that shit. first (and only) game i tried i got 5 cheaters spinbotting. 2 of them were prime accounts 1 dude with 1.5k hours and another dude with 2k hours. i think some of them had skins too. i was completely blown away, i didn't realize shit like that even existed. what i don't understand is whether i was unlucky enough to get those clowns when they finally decided to throw their accounts away or did they spinbot for over 1k hours and never got vacced. nice update btw, thx gaben
2020-07-09 05:57
They bought the accounts
2020-07-09 08:55
they bought the accounts. they are using cracked accounts. (you can buy scammed, stolen prime accounts for 1$ on some sites. Even sometimes if u r lucky u can buy a stolen account with a knife for 3-4$)
2020-07-09 10:31
I was in two games the other day with 5 man cheater stacks, all with over 2k hours and quite a lot of them with knives and other expensive skins, a guy on my team actually knew both cheater stacks and said they use a german private cheat developed in 2015 which is still undetected, they've been cheating on these accounts for 5 years without getting banned, every hour they have in the game is legit and not boosted hours and they aren't banned, VAC is shit and valve couldn't care less about cheaters.

Trusted mode doesn't do shit, i was in a game against a 5man cheater stack headshotting through walls and smokes ect so after the game i quit out, opted into the beta and turned trusted mode on, my very next game was another 5 man cheater stack who just so happened to be friends with the other 5 man cheater stack.
2020-07-09 10:31
This is only any good for premium cheats but people in matching use shitty free cheats which are injected into the memory space reserved for csgo so it's basically another part of the game.

It seems nice, but will programms like FACEIT AntyCheat work? If not then it's really fucked up.
2020-07-09 10:40
Since they give the option for the "3rd party developers" to sign digitally their hacks so they can work in trusted mode, i dont see how this helps. Also, i read that some people got problems with some nvidia functions. And lets agree that nvidia is a huge company and will have no problem signing up their stuff to work in trusted mode. Why are 3rd party developers given the option to do the same?

Guys stop complaining,its NOT possible to create anticheat which will stop all cheats forever. Its always easier to create cheat than anticheat. In cheat app you just finding the way to brake it from existing files in it,but in anticheat you have to find a way how to create files which cant be broken,so you already have to think about how to brake it to be able to prevent it. Its not achievable in this world,hackers will always find a way to brake it. Only way is to update the ac every day and its not going to happen

2020-07-09 14:40
> in their latest effort to combat cheating in CS:GO Oh wow, it's so nice from them!!! May be those morons would instead just check the users' reports, huh, and stop ignoring them??!! I reported a rage aimbot cheater ingame - 3 months and he's still not banned; I started a thread on steam forums and posted the GOTV demo, and a stupid moderator removed it and told me it was naming and shaming (which apparently is forbidden, unlike the cheating); I created a steam support ticket, and guess what - they told me I should've reported him ingame (which I did do) and that was it. He's still not banned for fuck sake, 3 months after having cheated. It's so nice that you cannot do anything about it, stupid steam support and stupid steam forums moderators think that a cheater not banned for months is not worse than their handless employees reading my report and banning that fucker manually (don't even try to tell me they cannot ban a cheater, it's their whole system for fuck sake and they can do everything, at least put him in overwatch again).
2020-07-09 14:46
Why do you care so much about getting this cheater banned?
2020-07-09 15:03
Because of people like you the cheaters do not get banned and still cheat. When just 1 guy reports an issue - no one listens to him because he's the only 1 that told about the issue, they imply the rest have 0 issues. If my demo was fucking sent to Valve by hundreds or even tens of people - may be that cheater would be banned, but instead I'm getting retarded questions like "why do you want a cheater banned?". This stupid community deserves to be constantly fucked in the ass like that.
2020-07-09 15:07
Why do you care so much about getting THIS cheater banned? Who is this guy? I play mostly on low trust, non-prime. Play against or together with cheaters almost every match. Report up to 15 players within 3 matches. Everybody reports cheaters, but no one, I repeat, no one has a personal vendetta like you. There are 10 to 40 thousand VAC bans every day in 2020.
2020-07-09 15:46
How THIS cheater differs from any other cheater? Do you want only some cheaters to get banned? Or you want neither of them banned?
2020-07-09 15:47
I would recommend you just report them in-game. Spending so much time and effort for one cheater is mental, you do realise that he will just make another free account? He will get banned, but not solely because of you. But because a greater part of the community reported him.
2020-07-09 15:57
> I would recommend you just report them in-game. No shit I didn't do it. > Spending so much time and effort for one cheater You don't want him to get banned or what? You can say the same about every cheater, what's the conclusion - they shouldn't be banned?
2020-07-09 16:07
Then do it next time. And only that.
2020-07-09 16:18
Sure tell me what to do and I will definitely do what you tell me, because you obviously care about cheaters getting banned alright.

2020-07-10 00:20
Ok, keep spending all your time on one cheater that ruined your GN4 game. He's going to make another account, and you're still going to cry.
2020-07-10 01:08
Im asking you again, my little friend that hasn't yet finished school - how does that one cheater differ from all the others and why shouldn't he get banned? And if every cheater just creates another account - so no cheater should be banned at all? It must be hard for you to speak to adults and use common sense but try your best.
2020-07-10 08:31
Listen kid, I don't care anymore. You do you, keep spending all your time on one cheater that ruined your GN4 game.
2020-07-10 09:25
Your childish attempts to bark at me keep failing, so better increase your IQ and only then try to talk to adults. That one cheater should be banned just like the other cheaters, if your childish brain can't understand that - grow up then.
2020-07-10 10:37
Again, You do you, keep spending all your time on one cheater that ruined your GN4 game. He should get banned, so should everybody else that cheats. But you obsessing about getting one cheater caught doesn't help anybody. It only gets you all grumpy and frankly just toxic.
2020-07-10 12:15
he is a cheater prob... wouldnt wonder if cheaters baiting in hltv
2020-07-09 17:16
So you really think it's just about banning one cheater? OK I will explain something to you. That cheater's not being banned indicates a bigger problem which is that even a cheater that got reported by 5 of his opponents can avoid getting overwatched. We reported him then, 3 months later he still plays. 2 months after that 3 cheaters boosted some 2 handless hobos, one of the cheaters got 6k hours, all three after 1 month passed still aren't banned, although we did report them. Usually an overwatch ban happens within a month, but may be those specific cheaters use specific cheats that bypass overwatch, may be Valve must lower the requirements for a report to be of any value, I mean sometimes may be I reported legit players and my "report rating" went bad, but it must not mean that a 10000% cheater should be able to cheat and not get banned, and I'm sure those 4 cheaters cheat not only against me, still they're not banned, and there are tens of those, if not hundreds, that aren't banned too, and it's an issue of clear sure cheaters not getting banned, not just an issue of 1 cheater that I met 3 months ago, if it's not obvious to you then fucking get your shit together and get some common sense, a cheater should be banned sooner than 3 months, even if he creates a new account he still got banned and will get banned again if the system works like it must work and not like it does now.

It's working. I haven't had any cheaters in the 10 games I played, and that is because I already have a good trust factor, but using this version, just boosted it to even better one. Some people have had worse experiences tho. But, they fucked up and they fucked up big time. You can't use NVIDIA Overlay or NVIDIA Freestyle. You can't stream CS:GO unless you stream and record your whole display, because the game capture won't work anymore. You can't have FACEIT Client overlay on anymore, and you can't have Discord overlay on anymore.

Lol 4 years late on this update. And still probably doesn't do anything. Dead game is dead.
2020-07-09 22:40
Why are u talking about vaLUL-rant state in a 4 year period at the CS GO update topic??
2020-07-10 01:57

Appreciate Valves continues effort to improve the game!

Valve did a really good job blocking RTSS so now no one can check their frametimes. May be 15 years later they will finally be able to block some cheats.

Normally I have 200+ fps but after this update when I do quick turn right-left with mouse it drops to 60, wtf guys?

Hopefully we will see if the ban statistics will provide some intel about these changes being good or not, cuz i sure as hell cant see any difference in game.
