More Counter-Strike 2 patch notes are here from Valve, as the limited test Counter-Strike 2 beta for its long-awaited sequel to one of the best FPS games rolls along. With news that Mirage is replacing classic CSGO icon Dust 2 in the map pool, it's now been added to the main menu as well. In addition to this, Valve has fixed several bugs and a weapon recoil issue, along with some model updates, showing that Counter-Strike 2 update changes can be rolled out much more quickly thanks to the all-new code.

Valve has previously said that "Counter-Strike 2 is the largest technical leap forward in Counter-Strike's history, ensuring new features and updates for years to come." With two sets of patch notes in as many days, the team is already showing how quickly it can respond to issues and deliver upon all manner of bugs or balance issues.

As part of this update, a bug with the new Counter-Strike 2 refunds allowing players to grab free armor has already been fixed, the legacy model should no longer appear when you’re previewing new weapon paint finishes, and several of the guns have had their models updated. In addition to this, Mirage can now be selected as the main menu scenery map, and a bug causing weapon recoil on certain guns to push down instead of up has been corrected.

With these continued updates, we can only hope to see the Counter-Strike 2 release date arrive soon. In the meantime, read up on all the Counter-Strike 2 maps we know about, or check out more of the best multiplayer games to get your competitive edge firing.
