Valve Teases Sample Visuals Of CS:GO In-Game Player Stats

Amid the rumor that Valve will release Source 2 any day now, CS:GO may come with a new in-game player statistics feature soon. Valve recently released the complete list of notes for the game’s new update.

The new update focuses on CSGO’s backend code, so there weren’t many major changes to the actual game aside from the activities and movements of some in-game items (e.g. grenade, C4 explosions). However, the update can definitely improve player engagement and at the same time create significant changes between CS:GO Bitcoin betting odds and game meta.

Gameplay Updates

  • The killfeed now displays players that are killed by C4 explosions in all game modes.
  • Players that are frozen by game logic no longer take damage.
  • Players are less likely to become stuck on mid-air grenades, and are now able to stand up when crouched on top of another player’s decoy grenade.
  • Grenades are less likely to phase through doors when thrown into nearby players, and have improved collision when bouncing near the ground around the player’s feet.

Back-End Updates

  • Added a new Anubis main menu background movie to the game.
  • Added a way for users to change their main menu background scenery.
  • Split stickers and patches localization UI tokens to allow for better translations.
  • Added proper HTML-escaping for custom inventory item names when applying and scraping stickers.

Along with the complete list of patch notes, Valve released two screenshots of the main menu setup in the works. The screenshots highlighted some unknown symbols that we may see and use in the future, as well as a sample look at the in-game player statistics page.

Players can actually check their CS:GO stats using the Steam account now, but it’s only limited to Pick ‘Em results, competitive match results, and leaderboards. Here’s how to access the statistics:

1. Access your Steam account through steampowered.com

2. Navigate your profile and click the ‘Games’ tab

3. Under the game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, click “Personal Game Data”

4. Select the type of data you want to see

Accessing Steam to view the statistics is extra work, but Valve may soon release an in-game player statistics page containing more data on the next update.
