This is sort of weird, but I was wondering if this happened to anyone else. I've noticed that when using certain models and anims, my aim seems alot better. And it doesn't just seem better, it actually IS better. For example, I always feel very innacurate unless I'm using Valve's default m4 model and anims. Otherwise, I simply do terrible and can't get any headshots. Or when using the default deagle I miss certian headshots, but if I'm using this skin: http://www.fpsbanana.com/skins/29779 I almost never miss. Has anyone else noticed certian models or anims just "click" with them, and they do better even though the only thing changed is the look of the weapon? I think this is the same reason people will silence the m4. It just "feels" accurate. You know?

    Default origins and animations are comfortable... i guess it would be safe to say that VALVe's animations match their recoil (for the most part).

    I know what you mean.
    Although I'm the opposite, I can't play with Valves origins they're too "scewed" & side on..
    I guess thats why secure match servers don't allow skins =[

    Yes, certain animations/sounds/models really can make the difference in your playing ability. It's in all in your head though.

    This is the same for me. I hate default orgins. Plus the way it sounds makes it better to.

    It's true. I used Malignant's AK replacement model with Zoidberg's anims and I always got headshots due to how smooth the animations were. Sounds help too.

    But I dunno. I use the defaults in 1.6 and I own either way.

    Origin of guns, sounds,the look, the way the model is designed, and animation does affect our aiming.

    I don't use the default CS models but a custom one. The custom feel far smoother than the Valve.

    If the origins are more realistic your brain will follow it more i guess.
    Has to do with the realism, I had it too.
    Ure brains are weird and I should know, I'm the brainz ;)
