I’ve played Counter-Strike for over 20 years, here are 10 things I want fixed in CS2

CS2 is a solid game, but there are still plenty of areas that need Valve's attention

Valve announced Counter-Strike 2 at the beginning of the year, and I, like millions of gamers, was excited to see the new chapter of this historic franchise unfold. That time came on September 27, 2023, with the shutdown of all CS:GO servers and the release of CS2. Everything that I had in CS:GO transferred automatically to CS2, even the crosshair.

As much as I wanted to love it from the get-go, at this point, CS2 is not as refined as CS:GO. That was to be expected for a new release, but there are a lot of tweaks that would make the game feel as smooth as its predecessor. I’ve played for over 20 years, and these are 10 things I want fixed in CS2.

After reading all this, you might think I am disappointed with the game, but it’s quite the opposite – CS2 is a solid game that only needs a couple of tweaks to make it special. I’m sure Valve will listen to the community and fix the issues that are preventing it from being the top first-person shooter once more.
