Spectator UI

The PAX CS:GO Community Event and ESWC NA Qualifiers are rapidly approaching, and today’s update includes some features designed to enhance the spectator experience.

Thanks to helpful feedback both from community members on the Steam forums and from pro players like Volcano, we’ve adjusted the observer and spectator UI, which now include:

  • A UI showing both team’s active weapon, player name, health, armor, etc, when spectating a 10 player match.
  • X-ray vision so dead observers can see their own teammates through walls.
  • A new convar “sv_competitive_official_5v5″ that allows connected spectators to see both teams in x-ray, and forces a match to display 5v5 scoreboards regardless of maxplayers setting (Allows setting maxplayers to 12 to allow spectators into a 5v5 match).
