Counter-Strike 2 Embraces Left-Handed Players with New Mode

After over two decades of battles between Terrorists and Counter-Terrorists in Counter-Strike 2, developers have finally mastered a feature that had long eluded them: handedness. That’s right. Where once the left hand had limited functionality, it can now take center stage as the one pulling the trigger.

With a recent patch, players can now seamlessly switch between left and right hands in Counter-Strike 2. Additionally, players can set a preferred handedness to ensure their character always starts with the gun in the desired hand. This feature is networked, allowing spectators to see the exact gun placement.

Furthermore, players can switch handedness mid-round, offering new tactical opportunities. Simply press H, by default, on QWERTY US Keyboards to change hands. Plus, there’s a neat animation for swapping the knife between the sides, which also increases movement speed.

Now, here’s the burning question that’s distracting me from work and has me downloading CS2 on the office PC: Have the reload animations been updated? Is the character still awkwardly reaching over the entire side of an AK-47 to pull the bolt? I’m itching to find out, but don’t spoil it for me. I want to discover it on my own.
