Well, we have all seen, and probably have a few, camo weapon skins for CS:S. Well, i got some camo weapon skins, because people seem to like them alot, but while playing on a map that i forget its name(but it was a jungle themed map), i looked and looked, but COULD NOT see the person that was shootin me. I was on CT, and the terrorist bleneded in, and i could not see the camo weapon. So, i realized, why in the WORLD would you get camo skins?! i mean, sure, they look kind of good, but they mess with your gameplay, as shown by the example above. Are they really that worth it? i personally, like screwing up the world models on my skins, so that its purple and black checkerboard, just so i can see people from a mile away. Camo just does not make sense to me.

    You just described model cheating, and I can't give my own input since, as a competitive player, I don't use any custom models. I don't think it makes much of a difference for a camo weapon anyway, isn't it the player-camo that would "screw you over".

    That's realism freaks for ya. I personally would love to have some good camo skins for my world models so they do blend in, Offer more of a challenge. Just having them stick out like a sore thumb is basically saying, "I don't like a challenge so I'm going to be a lazy pussy about it".

    LOL. That was one of the funniest CSS stories I've heard. hehehehe

    But, I totally know what you mean, the same thing has kinda happened to me. I had a skin were the LEET was in all black uniform, and I couldn't see him in any dark areas. lol

    I like camo, but not in forest-ish maps that make them blend in. That's why I play de_dust2 and not de_forest. :)

    yea, but i dont know if im blind, but the terrorists are mexican or something, so i have a hard time seeing them on dust_2, because their mexican-ness blends in, plus, my moniter brightness is REALLY high, and i cant change it... =[

    Does it look like a jungle to you?

    Just don't get the world models.

    Or get bright pink ones.
