A player in Counter-Strike 2 shared on Reddit that on PCs with old graphics cards (like the GeForce GTX 650 Ti), the smoke wall from smoke grenades is not visible due to problems rendering this type of graphical element. In this case, one can gain an advantage over other players.

The gamer reported that his components include an Intel i5-2500 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti graphics card, and 16 GB of RAM. Hour-Pea9048 noted that the game stopped functioning properly since the release of CS2.

I have the strangest graphical anomalies, I can see through most smoke grenades.

The downside of this situation is that instead of smoke, stripes and various graphical artifacts appear in the game.

Interestingly, in this case, players are not violating anything, as old PCs (builds with 16 GB DDR3 RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti, and Intel I5-2500) meet the minimum system requirements to run the game.

Some users in the comments on Reddit advised upgrading similar gaming PCs from 2011. Some users stated that their old PCs perfectly support CS:Go and Counter-Strike 2 at playable FPS.
