As Counter Strike: Source is also a graphics improved version of original CS.

But what are new features in Global Offensive and how they differs from Counter Strike: Source?


Mostly subjective, really. Some people like CS:S, some people don't. Here are some of the differences. CS:GO has:

  • Smaller hitboxes
  • Less clutter on maps to block movement
  • Tighter recoil (spray and pray does not work well)
  • New weapons (a few pistols, shotguns, smgs, mgs)
  • New grenades (decoy and flame)
  • Better graphics

Some actual improvements:

  • Gungame and Deathmatch modes built into game
  • Matchmaking
  • Rating system
  • Elo system
  • Arranged team matchmaking
  • CS:GO TV, a significant improvement over previous iterations.
  • what does CS:S have that CS:GO doesn't? – Neffer_23 Jun 16 '15 at 22:23
  • @Neffer_23 Nothing that I can think of. CS:GO is being continuously improved and has roughly 40 times more players. Unless you're on a very old computer or really fond of the oldschool gameplay, CS:GO is what you want at this point. – Decency Jun 17 '15 at 2:16
  • CS GO has better graphics and a lot of traffic. So if you use a laptop with moderate graphics card (I use Nvidia 750M), you should switch to CS:GO. Just in video settings, bring down the shadow settings to LOW. – Arindam Roychowdhury Sep 27 '16 at 9:54
