CS December 7 update fixes the weapon switching bug

It’s a small update with some big fixes.

Valve has released a new Counter-Strike update with changes to quite  few maps. The changes mostly pertain to bug fixes and changes to fix the CS weapon switch bug Here’s everything that’s new in the latest update.

The latest Counter-Strike update adds a few changes to quite a few maps. Most of these changes are focused more on ensuring better visibility and sounds. 

There was an issue previously that did not show PIstols in the pistol tab of the inventory. This has now been fixed. Another bug that had a significant impact on the gameplay was the way players could switch weapons after a grenade throw. Previously, after clicking the fire button, if a player would quickly switch the weapon, it would result in a failed grenade throw. This caused problems with lineups and coordinated attacks or retakes on the bomb site. Now once you release the fire button, the grenade is launched in the intended direction.
