Don't get us wrong, we are loving the new "Boost Player Contrast" setting from Valve's recent patch. It helps some of us that are a bit less fortunate in the vision department with getting those clean headshots. But unfortunately, we don't live in a perfect world, and the update has also brought a new bug.

Players at a long distance from the viewer can sometimes be revealed while they are in smokes, which we need not explain is extremely gamebreaking. A good example is this one on Dust II, where looking down Middle without scoping in your weapon reveals an enemy - regardless of a smoke grenade. So before you start mass reporting your enemies because he's obviously a cheater and no, you're not just having a bad day, stop to think if maybe he's just getting a lucky break from the visibility gods.
