CS2 Beta UPDATE: Most Important Changes from 6/6 Patch Notes

Here's what you need to know immediately about today's patch.

In a flurry of Counter-Strike 2-related news, Valve have published a massive changelog for a multi-GB update to the game today. While this is a ton to sink your teeth into, here are the most impactful changes to come with the June 6th update.

Gameplay Changes

  • Mirage has replaced Dust II on official Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test matchmaking servers.

  • Players have 1 Starting Pistol slot, 4 Pistol slots, 5 Mid-tier slots (previously "SMGs" and "Heavy"), and 5 Rifle slots, per team.

  • Players can now refund any purchase that was purchased in the same round and has not been used.

  • Existing CS:GO items on the Steam Community Market can be inspected in Counter-Strike 2.

Sub-Tick Changes

  • Sub-tick movement is now more precise and less "floaty" (per player-feedback).

  • Releasing movement keys now correctly convey their sub-tick timing.

Volumetric Smoke

  • HE grenade effect times on smoke has been reduced.

  • Shotguns now create larger holes in smoke volumes.


  • Multi-binds are back, except for jump-throw binds (which are now a skillful part of CS).


  • VAC will now live ban and gracefully terminate the match at the end of the round (unless it was the last round and the cheater lost).

Of course, there is so much more to this update, so be sure to check the complete patch notes here.
