Counter-Strike content creator and streamer Austincs showcased some game-breaking wallbang spots on the new Nuke map. Austincs’ video showcases different in-game locations where players can strategically use wallbangs to gain the upper hand. Austincs used Scar-20 to show how it can penetrate through a door frame, and the bullet goes all the way to the Trophy Room.

He also showed some more wallbang shots, some of which were very unusual. For example, by firing shots through a door frame and several walls using powerful weapons like sniper rifles, the Negev players can penetrate up to five walls, catching their opponents off guard. Austincs further goes on to compare this issue with the old Counter-Strike 1.6. Seasoned players surely know how easy it is to wallbang on maps in Counter-Strike 1.6. 

Finding these troublesome wallbang spots raises fairness concerns in CS 2 gameplay. Players eliminating opponents through hidden wall bangs disrupt strategy and dishearten players. CS 2 developers should definitely address these crucial fairness issues to ensure an enjoyable gaming experience. Since the game is in beta testing, players can expect Valve to fix this issue.
