CS:GO Update Enhances Controller Support on PC
With the new update, players can set custom configurations for controllers and save the settings in Steam Cloud.
With the launch of the Steam Deck, Valve is going all-in on the portable console by offering controller support in its games. CS:GO has always been a game that is meant to be played on mouse and keyboard, but that is set to change. With the new update, players can set custom configurations for controllers and save the settings in Steam Cloud. It is currently unknown if Valve will offer aim assist for controllers once Steam Deck launches, which could be a controversial move.
What to Expect From The New CS:GO Update?
Aside from the standard suite of bug fixes we get every patch, the controller support is all there is to the new update. If you are trying out the new configurations, be sure to re-apply default settings from the Controller Configuration menu in the Steam Overlay. The new update to CS:GO also adds various default binding changes for controllers only. Quick Buy radial menus are triggered with the D-Pad and Bumper Buttons while the BuyZoneLayer is active.

Here are the highlights of the new update:

- Fixes for DeathMatch BuyZoneLayer.
- Console/Quick Buy Radial menus match the same layout as the conventional Buy menu.
The new update makes playing CS:GO on a controller a much better experience thanks to the enhanced controller settings. To check out the full patch notes, click here.
