What techniques do you use?

I have been watching people play on css lately and they all use different ways of shooting .etc I want to know what most people do/what the best technique is. Eg your cross hair size, if you burst, spray or single shot, crouch and anything else. I usually use the m4/ak47 with a small crosshair and step left+right standing and burst. With sensitivity set to 10.

    Moving whilst shooting with any of the weapons is a bad idea really...
    long range, pause, 2-3 shot burst, move.
    Close range, empty clips on their faces whilst strafing at them.
    Mid-range, 3-4 shot burst depending on the weapon, still pausing and then shooting. Good idea to crouch.

    Best method I have found is to kill the players on the other team.

    I hardly crouch. I generally come to a stand-still for a second, and then after shooting, I move. Close range, I move around alot, jump, crouch, and just generally spray unless I have a shotgun. Mid-range, I usually move around less. Long range, I stand with most of my body concealed, if at all possible, and I just do some short bursts. I try to keep it to one shot.

    And my cl_crosshairscale is set to 1900 or 10000, depending on whether or not I'm trying to get better.

    My cl_crosshairscale was 2000 but i made it a fair bit higher. That seems to help a bit.

    At short range, I start from the upper torso and fire a 5-shot burst, which usually does the trick.At a more far range, I crouch and aim for the head, but don't stay crouched too long, in order to not be a sitting duck.

    By far the dumbest technique a player can do is fire at walls all round expecting to kill other players...

    mine is at 15.

    i turn it way down in the control panel, so when it is high in-game, you can have more control.

    I just raised my sensitivity over time. First it was 4. Then went to 6 then 9 then 10. I don't think I could go any higher though.

    Now that is a great tactic, so good in fact I'm gonna try it! Well another good tactic I found to play good at CSS is to imagine playing CSS in RL so jump around the corners of buildings and always, always crouch when throwing paper balls. Though I've heard there's no respawn points in RL and what happens if I get lag out there? I'm dead!

    I play with sensitivity at 7.1 (cuz i'm OCD like that, cant be an integer laul) and i spray n pray like crazy. i seriously wish i could stop, but i cant! it's like sex... except i'm having it.

    actually one thing i do like to do is defuse the bombs through a wall, like standing on the ramp at A on dust2 and defusing through the little railing thing to the bomb in the corner or something, or defusing the bomb on top of the train while safely hiding underneath the train. :D

    Crosshairs small strafe dont crouch unless really close and spraying or you have a pistol (crouching doesnt really affect bursting rifle shots but it affects pistols a lot)

    I usually crouch, aim for the head and burst 2-3 shots or spray the upper chest and let the recoil do its job. With pistols I mostly move a lot more than with the rifles. When using the AWM I often jump from behind a corner, shoot, swap to pistol. I barely ever shoot two shots at the same guy if I happen to miss the first one, in most cases I pull out my pistol and use that to finish him off.
