(Hartford Courant)   Someone must have leaked Adam Lanza's online handle, and *GASP*, media in a frenzy that he liked the M-16 and the Glock in Combat Arms. Hope no one finds my Counterstrike data from 2000-2004   (courant.com ) divider line

Video games are the only context where an M-16 could be lovable.  But then I'm an AK guy.

Almost an M-16 or almost something newsworthy? Cause it's definitely one of the two

So farking stupid... Has no bearing on anything. I play CS, and choose the M-16 quite often, because with the silencer attached, there is very little recoil, and it has decent power, big farking deal. It doesn't mean that it would be my weapon of choice if I shot a place up.

I got called Scout Whore in CS for a reason.

/also got banned from several servers "because girls can't play that well"

Pump shotty was also a fav (basically a short-range version of the scout anyway, as it had the same ROF and same damage). I got to be pretty good at no-scoping with the scout by using the combo so much.

If gun makers and video game makers are going to both get blamed for every random shooting, shouldn't they at least warrant it by collaborating on projects? What I'm saying is, when will Konami and some gun maker come together to create the only gun I can feel comfortable having in my home, the spread gun from Contra?

His mother had put him on this diet, I'm sure. She was the original fark up who in turn farked up her son.

Some parents of ASD children do crazy stuff  to "treat" their children, no scientific evidence of treatment's efficacy needed.  There is always some quack ready to sell it to them too.

I've played Combat Arms several times.  It's a fun game,  My favorite was sniper rifle in low covering tagging anyone moving towards the preferred snipering locations.  Best part was the humiliation over your target with the Nut Shot flag if you got your target in the groin.  Waiting there in the cover, some jerk climbs the tower to take up a snipering position and then getting them right between the legs.

I'm more of an acid SMG in the left hand and an slag rifle in the right, with incendiary black hole greanades to top it off.

I was always willing(And still am when I play) to deal with the reduced power as a trade for the reduced recoil. It totally screws me up now if I DON'T silence the thing, and I don't think it's the recoil, I just think its because I'm not expecting noise form it. :-)

Dropping your mouse sensitivity helps with this. It smooths out the jerkiness, and you can compensate for recoil better.

Nothing will fix the AK's recoil though.

Buy a cheap shotgun and cut it really short. Just don't expect good things to happen when you fire it.

Yeah, the AK definitely has to be a burst weapon. If I'm worked up and try to fire an AK, it ends up being Spray and Miss Everything, Spray and Pray doesn't even work with that thing. When you burst correctly though, that AK is awesome.

I'll have to try the sensitivity thing, I've still been trying to tweak that to my satisfaction, after playing for years. I usually make it more sensitive...

My sens was usually around 1.1 to 1.3, depending on the gun. The longer I've been away from the game, the higher it tends to creep before I ruthlessly start dropping it again.

The para was always the best for Spray and Pray. 100 rounds and little recoil. Made running impossible though.

Also, a friend taught me to hop on a blank server and strafe back and forth, trying to shoot the same spot on the wall each time (helps to use that bull's eye spray), and also setting your crosshair as small as possible (cl_crosshairscale 5000 is usually what I did, though I think technically it stops after 3000). Those will vastly improve your aim.

Good luck!

Hmmm, I'll try those the next time I play. I get streaky, play 3-4 nights a week, at least 2 of those 8-12 hour sessions for a month or two, then I won't play again for 6 months...

I paid a pretty good price for G.O., good thing it was cheap. The buy menu sucks, the server menu sucks, no silencer on the M16 anymore, I think they took away the flashlight(Best used for signalling your team when you are hiding and they're about to blow you away), hosties are spread around the house in Militia, on a certain Play Mode, you can't just decide you're done and drop, or you lose points and standing. There's some more stuff that I'm not really all that impressed with. I keep going back to CSS. Of course, I was playing when it was a beta version of a Half Life mod, so I really like it to not change too much.

See I started playing Tactical Operations or 'Tac-Ops' before playing CS and while the core gameplay of CS was miles ahead of Tac-Ops the maps in Tac-Ops were some of the best asymmetrical multiplayer maps ever.

I played tac-ops back when it was so new that they hadn't modded out the 'center view' button from the UT engine so you could just hold down the key and get instant head-shots against any coplanar opponents.

Nah, I like the Dualies better than the Deagle. Almost like having n SMG for a secondary weapon if you can shoot fast enough. Deagle's nice, but slow.

And fark the knife, God I suck with the knife.

the only thing i ever played in counterstrike was zombie mode, which was always a hilarious clusterfark (hence why people liked it)... the only game that's really tried to replicate that was ace of spades, too bad that game is just a clusterfark by itself

If CS has proven that if someone is good at anything they are probably cheating.

I mapped the mouse scroll up and down to fire. Dualies were basically full auto.

The best weapon in the game is the flashbang.  One of players on the server I used to play CS on made a flashbang only map in which your health was dropped to one at spawn and you fell on a pile of flashbangs with no other weapons. Basically you had to bean the other players with a flashbang.  The problem was that once contact began you couldn't see anything. The mod writers hadn't even bothered to make/test the flashbang icon for the death message so you could never tell who died due to it putting up a huge picture of the flashbang from the buy menu.

/OK so it wasn't the best weapon
//it was just hilarious
