A CS:GO historian evaluated P2000 use rates across experts on the top 30 teams, and the differences are astounding. Even while it is believed that some professionals would continue to use the USP-S, just 57 out of the 147 players who were studied had a kill with the P2000 in the previous year.
According to a July 22 NoSleepCSGO video, a professional player even had more smoke grenade kills than P2000 eliminations during the course of their careers. During their time as professional CS:GO gamers, little more than 6% of the players studied utilized the P2000.
Even the unsilenced USP-S was able to win the favor of certain professionals. There are several uses for both firearms. The USP-S's silencer and absence of tracers through smoke are benefits. This enables players to fire potshots through a smoke grenade without being immediately located.
The magazine size of the P2000 is an advantage. When time is of the essence, the additional round in its 13-bullet magazine may rescue the day. Additionally, because to its diminutive size, there is no chance that a rifle barrel will protrude around a corner.
The USP-S differs from the P2000 primarily because to its minimal recoil and superb accuracy. There's always a possibility we may see a P2000 revival with CS2 just around the bend. In numerous enduring Counter-Strike levels, Valve has previously modified areas and redesigned smoke grenades.
