One main issue that still remains is the one of the subtick system. Some players have been experiencing these issues, especially when they get peeked. The animation problem due to the subticks is causing a problem making players feel like they are being shot from behind a wall. This comes as a huge problem as many players have gotten this issue up. Although Valve has not yet addressed this bug, players hope to see it patched soon.

Many maps in Counter-Strike 2 have received improvements in lighting. Maps like Overpass and Inferno received more significant makeovers. Players are also eagerly waiting to see the return of maps like Cobblestone and Cache, which have not yet been implemented.

Some miscellaneous issues include watching highlights and lowlights through the in-game demo viewer causing consistent crashes. Some players have noticed the absence of the “cl_righthand 0” command, which allows players to switch the weapon view model to the left hand. Valve has not yet introduced this command to CS2, and fans are patiently awaiting a new update.
