In Counter-Strike 2, smoke from smoke grenades is not visible on PCs with old video cards (like GeForce GTX 650 Ti)
A Counter-Strike 2 player reported that on PCs with older graphics cards (such as GeForce GTX 650 Ti), he could not see smoke walls from smoke grenades due to problems rendering this type of graphics. In this case, you can get an advantage over other players.
The downside of such a situation is that instead of smoke, stripes and various graphics artifacts appear in the game.
It is noteworthy that in this case, the players do not break anything, since older PCs (builds with 16 GB of 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 to upgrade similar gaming PCs of 2011 release. Some users have stated that their old PCs support CS:GO and Counter-Strike 2 perfectly on ripping FPS.
