While competitive FPS games are everywhere nowadays, few compare to CSGO’s unparalleled attention to realistic gunplay. Shooting in any of the Counter-Strike games is rarely as simple as aiming at the head. Instead, it involves real-life gun mechanics. There’s recoil and bullet spread, and players must carefully learn to control weapon spray. It makes for a superior challenge, but with the Counter-Strike 2 release date inbound, there’s a good reason for the next Valve shooter to introduce follow recoil, and make Counter-Strike 2 a little more accessible for players other than pros.
