Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a great game to play with a mouse and keyboard. However, the game also supports controllers for those comfortable with them. The developer released a patch yesterday that improves several aspects of controller support.

Controllers received several default binding changes. Players can now open Quick Buy radial menus by using D-Pad. Bumper buttons can also be used if BuyZoneLayer is active. Fixes for DeathMatch BuyZoneLayer have been implemented, and Drone strafing is patched. The layout of Console/Quick Buy Radial menus now matches that of the conventional Buy menu. Players who use controllers will need to re-apply default settings by going to the Controller Configuration menu.

Please be sure to re-apply default settings from the Controller Configuration menu in the Steam Overlay.
  • Various default binding changes for controllers only. Quick Buy radial menus are triggered with the D-Pad and Bumper Buttons while the BuyZoneLayer is active.
  • Simplified set of Radial Action Override Layers. By default, the right stick is used to control the radial. If XYAB are bound to a radial button, the left stick is used instead.
  • Fixes for DeathMatch BuyZoneLayer.
  • Console/Quick Buy Radial menus match the same layout of the conventional Buy menu.
  • Danger Zone Controller Support: Fixed Spawn Menu Controls. Fixed Drone strafing.
  • Known issue: Button binds in Action Override Layers are not displayed in in-line glyphs.
Note to “radial_quickinventory.txt” users: you can set “cl_quickinventory_filename” to point to a different file name in the same directory.
  • radial_quickinventory.txt: added “ROTATION_OFFSET” field, which will rotate the entire radial by the given number of degrees.
  • Quick Inventory and Quick Grenade Radial: Fix for missing items (Bump Mines, Shields, etc.) not displaying.
  • Various Inline Button Glyph fixes (ongoing).
  • Added server convar sv_max_allowed_developer that determines highest developer value for attached clients
  • getpos and getpos_exact are now cheat protected

You can read the complete patch notes on Steam as well.
