The player with access to the beta believes Peekers are a factor to consider when playing CS2 more than you’ve ever done in any other counter-attack match.
Many players are saying that it is impossible to simply hold angles the way they were used to doing in CS:GO. The reason is that they claim the player who moves really sees the player who first has a tendency to kill them.
I always respond faster than enemies like that, but in CS2 it’s just the opposite, one player wrote on Reddit. I can’t catch anyone faster than they can, so it’s impossible. People will only appear on the screen and headshot me, I can’t even react.
Are you just me or is holding an angle now impossible? by/towelPitiful8354 inGlobalOffensive.
Don’t get killed in this fashion. You can check the fashion by jiggle peek, which makes sure your model is always moving and becomes a tougher targetand it will also make you stumble.
It’s imperative for you to always press A and D when you want to get a shot. Of course, peekers advantage existed already in CS:GO and players must jiggle peek, but there were angles that one could hold up and grab some free kills. The way that peekers advantage works in CS2 drives many players to think about VALORANT.
Personally, I don’t like the way I play CS2 because I am a college player who learned to learn the basics of counter-Strike with CS: 1.6. The fact that I jiggled in the CS:GO area and could smoke choke points, I still don’t like to sit a bit tight when the final season is so easy that the opponents can pick some free kills if the opponents don’t take the puck.
It is not only casuals who have to adapt to CS2s peekers advantage but also professional players like Tsvetelin CeRq Dimitrov, who is among the most respected CS2 players in Europe.
It’s impossible, you shouldn’t have a clé, said CeRq during his interview with HLTV on Sept. 12 about how CS2s peekers advantage works for an AWPer like him. In CS2, you must be so quick. You should no longer sleep.
There’s another big talking point that peekers advantage works like this in CS2, because of the quality of Valves and games net codes. A major player said that it would be better if they played on FACEIT servers because of the 1.228-tick rate of the server, but the 0.28% chance of doing that is an important part of the game with the 13th Sept update.

However, one way or the other, we all have to adapt to CS2 as it remains unclear whether Valve will fix the situation of peekers advantage prior to the release.
