New Counter Strike: Global Offensive Update Adjusts Accuracy Recovery Rate

Valve has released a major new Counter Strike: Global Offensive update. The update in question amends the recovery rate for three of the most used Global Offensive rifles.

Recovery rate for AK-47, M4A1-S, and M4A4 are adjusted. Previously, accuracy for all of these rifles would return to the baseline after firing. However, once the update is installed we’ll have “initial and final” values.

These weapons will behave a little differently depending on the firing techniques you use.
