False VAC Ban Causes $100k Loss for Counter-Strike 2 Player

Recently CG:GO 2 players have been facing a new problem involving AMD’s Anti-lag+ feature. Using this on AMD cards has unexpectedly resulted in VAC (Valve Anti-Cheat) bans. This means affected players can’t trade their in-game items, causing some players like Neon to lose over $100,000 worth of items due to a false VAC ban.

While agent skins in Counter-Strike might not be as valuable as high-end knife skins or gloves, they’re still highly sought-after in-game items. Neon is one such player who had items like a Factory New Butterfly Knife Fade worth over $3,000 and a Field-Tested Dragon Lore.

Near the peak of his collection, Neon has some incredible goods stacked in his inventory, and he has almost 1,000 CS skins in total. This shows just how much some players invest in their Counter-Strike inventories.

But because of AMD’s Anti-lag+ feature, he lost items valued at over $100,000, leaving him seeking explanations.

Well, Valve has warned users about the risk of being banned for using anti-lag features and is looking into reversing bans for players who were unfairly flagged.

For those who might not know, the launch of Counter-Strike 2 hasn’t gone as smoothly as players hoped. There have been issues ranging from hit registration problems to strange bugs, causing a lot of frustration. Valve is actively working on updates to fix these problems and improve the game.

Players who updated their AMD GPU drivers and then played Counter-Strike 2 are facing unexpected VAC bans. This is connected to AMD adding the Anti-Lag+ feature in their October 12 update, aimed at reducing input-to-response latency for CS2 players. However, VAC sees the DLL rerouting used by Anti-Lag+ in a similar way to common cheating software, leading to bans that aren’t deserved.

Valve advised AMD users not to enable Anti-Lag+ and promised to address any accidental VAC bans once AMD releases a fix. In the meantime, affected players with Radeon GPUs should manually disable Anti-Lag+ through the AMD Radeon Software panel. Some users have reported performance improvements with Radeon cards after the CS2 launch, but the situation shows the importance of AMD fixing the issue soon.
