Valve has achieved something remarkable with Counter-Strike 2, and has done it almost under-the-radar. The developer has managed to transition one of the largest and most change-averse competitive playerbases around from CS:GO to CS2 without any significant pushback, large-scale complaining, or splitting that playerbase.

A new patch fixes"several hitbox alignment bugs", so precision AK shots on a defuser are back on the menu, though as ever with Valve there's no further detail on the specifics of the bugs. This comes alongside various minor fixes to glitches with weapon inspections and certain skins not displaying correctly, though the funniest element of this patch is a cosmetic tweak: players had been complaining about how fast the knives spin.

These animations have an element of swagger to them, and watch enough CS:GO/CS2 clips and you'll see a vast number of players executing quick switches to their knives after kills: this has a practical aspect to it, in terms of increasing movement speed and skipping parts of the reload / recoil animation, but mostly it just looks very cool to headshot someone then start spinning a fancy knife around.

CS2's launch has seen various minor patches like this, and issues addressed, but it really has gone as smoothly as it could have, and that's no small feat. CS:GO boasted just under 30 million monthly players after all, and we'll know soon enough whether CS2 has been able to top that.
