Counter-Strike 2, which is set to replace Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and is currently being playtested, has unveiled a new feature coming to the tactical shooter: Players will be able to get refunds during the weapon buying phase at the beginning of a round, so any misclicks or quick changes to the plan for the upcoming round won’t be as tragic anymore.

Valve has revealed this feature in a very short clip on social media, which is just 20 seconds in length. Despite that, it contains another important piece of information that is very welcome to many players: CS2 gets rid of CS:GO’s weapon buy wheel. The developers had originally used this wheel design in CS:GO, because the tactical shooter was released for consoles as well, and the player base, which is predominantly on PC, never really warmed up to it.

CS2 replaces the buy wheel with a simple grid menu that allows players to see every option available to them, buy it all from there, and gives them an overview of what they currently have in their possession.

We can also spot the currently available weapon and equipment options for the CT side, which are as follows:

  • Equipment:
    • Kevlar Vest
    • Kevlar + Helmet
    • Zeus x27
    • Defuse Kit
  • Pistols:
    • USP-S
    • P250
    • Five-SeveN
    • Desert Eagle
    • Dual Berettas
  • Mid-Tier:
    • MP9
    • MP7
    • UMP-45
    • MP5-SD
    • XM104
  • Rifles:
    • M4A1-S
    • M4A4
    • AWP
    • AUG
    • SSG 08
  • Grenades:
    • Flashbang
    • Smoke Grenade
    • High Explosive Grenade
    • Incendiary Grenade
    • Decoy Grenade

It’s worth noting that the M4A1-S and M4A4 are both available and that the FAMAS seems to have made an exit.
