CSGO Fun Facts
1. You cant see your own shadow.
It seems weird but actually is also the truth, you can not really see your own shadow while in-game from your POV, it is mainly because POV cams do not actually have the shadow render, thus you don’t see it.
2. CSGO was earlier just a port for CS: Source for consoles.
Yup. It was never planned to be an independent game and successor of Counter Strike 1.6 and Counter Strike: Source.
3. When it first launched, CS:GO didn’t have Competitive Mode and Skins.
Yea you heard it right. No matchmaking and skins. Back to defaults.
4. If you keep the tutorials on, you can locate the bomb in smoke.
This one actually is a trick to locate the bomb when you struggle to find it in deep smoke.
5. ignoremsg – disables everything
Too allergic to bullsh*ts? Now ignore all the spam and worthless messages from your team-mate trying to troll you when you would want to concentrate on the game.
6. Molotov powerful then incendiary and also $200 cheaper.
This actually doesn’t make sense. The terrorist side Molotov is $200 cheaper as well as stronger at the same time. I mean why? What wrong has the Counter-terrorists done trying to prevent bombs from detonating.

Yea, this actually works. Adding “-language pirate” in launch options will change the in-game language of your game and will look more convincing than ever!
9. You can actually pull out money from ATM beside bank @ Overpass.
Weird, but works. While in death-match if so, if you visit the A bombsite in Overpass map, you can actually by making use of the ‘use’ button, pull out cash out of the bank.
