Valve has released a fresh update to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and they continue focusing on Steam Input improvements, to make playing it with a controller and the Steam Deck a better experience.
Seems they're trying to help controller players catch up at least a tiny bit with those using a mouse, with plenty of working going into changing how gyros work. Quite a small patch overall though but it sounds like some pretty fun and welcome changes, although Gyros Akimbo does sound somewhat hilarious.
- Steam Deck now allows other game controllers to be connected via Steam Input. All connected controllers combine inputs. (You can play with Gyros Akimbo if you are very cool).
- “Pitch and Roll Combined” is the new default Gyro conversion on Steam Deck. All other controllers default to “Yaw”
- Radial menus (in particular, Quick Buy radials) no longer persist when dying.
- Some glyph fixes in Spectator mode.
I did try out CS:GO on Deck myself and was tempted to video it but lets just say it was embarrassing. It's a very tough game to really get into on a controller of any sort. If you have a Deck, have you been playing CS:GO on it? Let us know what your experience has been in the comments.
You can play free on Steam.
