The latest Counter-Strike: Global Offensive update might not be the major Panorama UI overhaul that we were hoping for, but it does finally address one of the most infuriating animation bugs in the entire game.
If you've ever died to another player using an SMG in CS:GO even though you were convinced had a knife or a grenade in their hand, you were probably right.
In perhaps one of the most infuriating animation issues in the history of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, a one-handed walking animation for the Mac10, MP7, and Mp9 constantly tricked players into thinking their opponent wasn't holding a weapon.
The subject has been brought up by community members on a regular basis but on May 1st Valve finally addressed it by adding a new “two-handed version to improve weapon recognition”.
Members of the CS:GO community often express the feeling that Valve does not care about them, as they still wait for the UI overhaul that was promised in 2017, and this SMG update is hardly going to change that belief, but it is a start.
