A strange Counter-Strike: Global Offensive bug that causes the Zeus x27 to disappear between rounds is still confusing players, with a popular streamer becoming one of it's latest victims.
The Zeus x27 was added to CS:GO in 2012, and remains as one of the least used guns due to its incredibly short range. However, in the rare occasions that it is used, it seems to be affected by a strange bug.
Veteran CS:GO player and popular streamer Joshua 'steel' Nissan was caught off guard by the bizarre glitch during a stream on September 4, when his Zeus mysteriously vanished between rounds.
The Canadian was playing a Faceit Pro League match on Nuke when he was forced to wait for the clock to run out on a round and saved his weapons for the next round, which included a Zeus.
When the next round started, he asked his team if they want a tazer, before realizing it had disappeared. “Wait what the fuck, I thought I had a tazer. Didn’t I pick up a tazer? Shit's busted” said Steel.
He seemed pretty frustrated by the disappearance of the weapon, and later complained to the official CS:GO account on twitter, highlighting the clip and stating “I picked up a tazer and it disappeared the next round??? Hello? Feature?”
His fans quickly investigated the issue and found that this is a strange bug dating as far back as 2016, where the Zeus was replaced by the starting pistol if you don’t have a pistol equipped at the end of a round.
