CSGO players frustrated by annoying Overpass hitbox issues

CS:GO players are complaining about the hitboxes for the dumpsters on the A Site of Overpass, which aren’t matching up with the in-game models.

Being able to peek around cover and shoot your enemy before they tag you is a key part of CSGO, but when the game itself throws a wrench into your plans, things can get frustrating quickly.

Located near the bank, the A Site on Overpass is filled with dumpsters, which provide ample cover, but also appear to be getting in the way of players.

Site A on Overpass is causing players headaches with hitbox issues.

Reddit user bustamasta found out just how infuriating the messed up dumpster hitboxes are when it cost them a kill during a round. As busta waited by the trash receptacle, it seems like they should have had the unsuspecting enemy dead to rights – that is, until they actually tried to shoot them.

They didn’t seem to be aiming at the dumpster itself, but most of the shots still reacedt as if they were striking the side of the container.

This caused the enemy player to only take partial damage while busta – who had every advantage in the fight – ended up being the one eliminated.

“I’m not as mad as I could have been,” bustamasta admitted on Reddit. “For once I know it wasn’t my fault I died.”

While the hitbox issues on the dumpster might be jarring, they’re far from the only spots on Overpass’s A Site, which has become infamous for problems just like this.

The truck on A Site also loves to eat shots it shouldn’t be able to, along with most of the other vehicles and crates scattered around the area. Other players suggested that the entire map is riddled with hitbox issues and other problems, with one user calling it “outdated and janky.”

Overpass is infamous for the hitbox issues with its terrain.

Overpass was CSGO’s first new defuse map and was designed specifically to be used in competitive play, but some players obviously think it’s time for a major rework.

If Valve has any plans to retune the classic setting though, they haven’t shared them with anyone else, so be sure to watch your corners the next time you find yourself near a dumpster.

Ahead of 100 Thieves’ announced departure from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Mathew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag came under a bit of fire for disinterest in his org’s finals match at IEM New York and, subsequently, admonished by ESL for streaming the event.

Nadeshot came home to Los Angeles after 12 hours of travel and was excited to stream some of the Black Ops Cold War open beta for the first time, but, as the stream started, he also mentioned that he wouldn’t be responding to chat as much as usual because 100T was facing Furia in the IEM New York Grand Finals.

Unfortunately, some found it disappointing that the organization’s founder would multitask and play another game during his team’s final CS:GO match ever, with former pro Chad ‘SPUNJ’ Burchill even calling him out.

With people like SPUNJ discrediting Nade’s loyalty to his team and Black Ops Cold War coincidentally crashing, the 100T CEO attempted to switch over to the big match. But, in another string of disappointments, that idea wasn’t meant to be either.

After trying to watch the Grand Finals with about 13,000 viewers, Nade received word that this re-stream was against ESL guidelines and that he was not allowed to do so.

Frustratedly, he returned to his initial Black Ops Cold War plans and expressed some understanding, as well as disappointment with the tournament organizers’ decision.

“At the end of the day, I get it from a business perspective on ESL’s standpoint,” Nadeshot said. “I mean, they pay for broadcast rights and they’re putting on this tournament and all these things.

But, from my perspective, I have all of their sponsors and broadcast assets on my stream … I’m essentially just on a soapbox right now, blasting the stream but with just 12-13,000 more viewers.”

As he explained on stream, by putting the stream on full screen without any of his brandings, he felt that he was just giving the official broadcast more exposure. But, ultimately, he understands why the decision was made.

In a later clip, following his return to streaming BOCW, the 100T head honcho added further clarification.

While affirming that he fully understands why he wasn’t allowed to re-stream the event and that he respects ESL’s business decisions, he felt that this situation was unique and could have been handled differently: “Well, I got your logos up here, I’ve got none of my sponsors up here. Can’t we just make an exception?”

First criticized for not giving his team’s play enough attention and then reprimanded for giving it too much attention, this wasn’t one of Nadeshot’s more fortunate streams. Still, he understands why ESL came down on him and, perhaps more importantly, he did eventually get to play BOCW without his PC crashing.
