The long-rumoured and highly-anticipated Source 2 port of the game, should arrive any week now, and it seems it could hold a Smoke Grenade fix.
CS:GO Source 2 Smoke Grenade fix
In the latest Dota 2 update, which brought with it the Battle Pass, dataminers have found strings of code suggesting a CS:GO Smoke Grenade fix could release with Source 2.
For those who don't know, Dota 2 and Half-Life: Alyx uses Source 2.

This is by no means a confirmation of CS:GO Source 2 port's imminent release. However, combined with several rumours, it is likely we will finally see the game ported to Valve's latest engine soon. It is only a matter of time really.
There are also some changes to grenade particles, with new effects added for various grenades, from Smoke to Molotov.
CS:GO players will know about the long-standing Smoke Grenade issue. This issue sometimes allows you to see the outline of enemies in smoke if you stand on the edge of the smoke.
It remains to be seen what Valve will add with the CS:GO Source 2 port, and exactly when the developer will release the long-awaited update.
The CS:GO community on Reddit is already getting hyped due to the lines of code found.
