Valve has released the patch notes for Counter-Strike 2’s March 30 update, which disabled the wallhack command, fixed some smoke grenade issues, and more.

Counter-Strike 2 has taken the gaming community by storm as lucky players have flocked to the beta period to experience the improvements made to the traditional Counter-Strike experience.

As the game is still in a test beta period, there are plenty of glitches and bugs still present, like the development console command that essentially left wallhacks available to all players.

The patch notes came from the official Counter-Strike website, which listed out the updates for each category.

Among the biggest changes to the gameplay is the fact that the “‘cl_physics_highlight_active 5’)” command has been disabled, which essentially added a green box around all player models.
