February 24th CSGO update adds Agent patches, AWP movement changes, new buy menu, & more

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has received its latest update and it brought forth some new features and multiple adjustments to the UI, map adjustments, Agent patches, and a crouch movement change.

The still somewhat fresh Agents have received the ability to get patches which will now come with some of the fan-favorite stickers such as the Howl Skin and Operation/map stickers. We should know soon enough whether or not Major stickers will now come in patch form as the event ESL One Rio event gets closer.

The buy menu received an overhaul as well. Those accessing the menu will now have a chance to see their player model wielding the weapon they’re hovering over in the skin they’ve selected in addition to the stats.

Changing and adjusting your crosshair will be easier than ever now as the menu to do so now shows you what your crosshair will look like.

The main gameplay adjustment comes to AWP movement which as seen a bit of a nerf in the patch. “AWP crouching movement acceleration is now constant and will not spike after firing a shot,” means that those who fire a shot while crouched will no longer be able to slip away so quickly from their opposition.
