Scrolling down the upcoming changes in the game, Shroud spotted there is a quality of life change that is very reminiscent of Valorant. In the UI upgrades, the devs mentioned that the game will have a small bar at the bottom of the screen that keeps count of the player’s kills. And if they manage to pull an Ace by killing all five members of the opposing team, it will light up.

According to the Canadian streamer, this feature is from Valorant. “Look at this, VALORANT, VALORANT! You guys see that?” exclaimed Shroud. “This is what I was talking about literally yesterday when we were playing, I was wondering, why is there no like… give me some, give me some fucking gas when I get an ace, instead of just like ‘oh cool dude you killed a few people.’”

In Valorant, players get a shout-out every time they perform an ace eliminating all the players in the opposition team. This small feature helps players boost their morals and strive to make amazing plays. For a long time, this feature was unavailable in Counter-Strike. However, with the latest upgrade, it is finally coming to the beloved online FPS.
