The developers of Counter-Strike 2 have issued a strong warning to players, indicating that enabling AMD’s Anti-Lag feature for CS2 may result in a ban. They mentioned that the features from the most recent AMD driver updates are implemented by detouring engine dll functions, and they plan to identify affected users and reverse their bans when AMD updates the drivers.
AMD’s Anti Lag Feature is Getting Gamers Banned From Counter Strike 2
AMD introduced support for Anti-Lag Plus in CS2 through the Adrenaline Edition version 23.30.1 driver, specifically for Radeon RX 7000-series GPUs. Older hardware should not be affected. To disable this feature, players can press Alt+L, and they can verify the hotkey assignment in AMD Radeon Software by clicking the gear icon, going to Hotkeys, and customizing the hotkey for Anti-Lag Plus.
VideoCardz has reported that players of other games, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Warzone 2, and Apex Legends, have been experiencing issues such as bans or game crashes when using Anti-Lag Plus. This suggests that the problem may not be limited to Counter-Strike 2 and extends to other titles as well.
