Report – Silencer to be Added to Counter-Strike GO After Balance Issues Are Ironed Out

Valve has promised to add the silencer attachment to Counter-Strike Global Offensive once all remaining balance issues are addressed. At the E-Sports World Cup 2012, Valve spoke to the tournament players in regards to adding the silencer.

Cadred was able to speak with one of the attendees, who had the following to say, “[Valve] talked to us for about forty-five minutes about the changes that were coming in the game and were very keen to address the silencer issue.

“One of my team-mates had already said to them that the silencer had to be brought back and I think that’s why they talked about it so much. They kept saying that it was a low priority compared to other things but it would definitely be making a return.

“The guys we spoke to kept telling us that they felt CT was really overpowered right now on most maps, which wasn’t what we felt at all. They said that was the main reason for dropping the silencer because it gave the CTs yet another advantage and they felt it was one too many.

“They know how the community feels about it but they said it was a balancing issue. Even then they reassured us that it would be back, just as soon as they could figure out how to fit it in without it unbalancing the game further.”

Are you still playing Counter-Strike GO? What do you think of the way Valve has handled the balance issues so far?

  • I have it on xbox but dont play it at all match making is really bad was very disappointed with it

      Get it for PC. Matchmaking is MUCH better.

  • I suck at counter strike but I still enjoy it. I actually thought that T’s had an advantage. Seemed to me the weapons were better.

  • and probably only for PC FML.

      Honestly… just only get Valve games on PC. It’s much more worth it. After what happened with TF2 and L4D DLC… Only Valve games I’ve bought on console are Portal 1 and 2. Which I also got on PC later.

      • i game mostly on Ps3 and i can game on PC if i want (got a sh*t ton of steam games) but i don’t like gaming on PC IDK why i don’t but i don’t 😀

  • Got it for Xbox, 2/10

    A shooter that you can’t aim properly in is a fail right out the gate.

      CS is a PC game, playing it on Xbox is like smoking crack when you’re at work.

      Dude, CS:GO is a competitive game and consoles like xbox and ps3 is and will never be a real competitive machine. Go play call of duty there are made for console without competitive! 🙂

    Unfortunately it probably wont be available to us consoles players considering the fact that they haven’t even given us the first patch.

    CS on consoles isn’t too bad after some practice. I was so used to using the controller that when i went back to pc version with keybaord and mouse, i couldn’t do as well. Playing it on console is certainly a bigger challenge but its fun as hell once you get it down with the right stick sensitivity.

    Easy, why don’t they just lower the damage and increase the accuracy when using a silencer.
