After 4 long days of playing nothing but counter-strike:Source, with some clasic mixed in there, I have been able to draw some viable conclusions on the changes to the weapons, whether they be real, or mental. First off, some more weapons have come into the light as the "go to" weapon of choicein their gun category. In the SMG category, the navy, I believe is about to hand over its throne as the top smg. It will give it to the UMP, as it has been stepped up a notch in source. I don't know if the code for it is different, or maybe it's mental; all I know is that I have been racking up kills with it on close to mid range quarters maps such as italy,dust, and office. The Ak-47 has become slightly harder to hit with in source, and this is really, really noticeable in the waters of Aztec. Over such long distances, the Ak-47 used to be the 2 shot killer, because if you were any good, you could take out an awper with it. NOw, the recoil has become harder, and whenever I shot in Aztec I always though why the hell aren't my bullets hitting this guy. I went back into classic 1.6, tried it out, and the Ak didn't hold the same level of frustration. The AWP is also back in a big way. The new reticle is awsome, and it appears to be easier topick a target with it. This is probablya mental thing, but I found itmuch easier to score multiple kills in a round with an awp, even in mid range situations. All other guns remain pretty much the same, except what seems like a slight forgiveness in the glock's 3 shot burst, which started getting me kills when faced off with a Deagle or USP at close range. Remember, I don't know if these things have truly been changed; this is what it feels like to me. No flaming, as these are not necesarily true.

    CS:Source is a lot more fun but a lot more BS than regular CS.


    BS? What is that? I agree that it's more fun.... :)

    I've found the shotgun seem turned up a bit, the Leon I believe they call it now, seems more powerful even at greater distances. If I use this shotty in Piransis (sp?) and Office I seem to come away with many more kills than before and more then if using any other rifle. Usually I'm mostly an Ak47 and M16 guy, but this shotty I'm find to be reaaal sexy....

    I'd have to agree with clubar on the TMP, but I find the M3 to be way too touchy, even from a foot away.

    I've found the M3 and TMP more effective while the M4A1 and AK no longer have the probable two/three shot kill capability.

    Source is bugged _ sometimes shots dont even register.

    half life 2s technology means if you crouch at the same time as someone shoots you - you can then dodge that shot by a milisecond. i dont know if its possible for two people to shoot each other (maybe its the game's code) but HL2 engine sure has chaned CS, code change or not.
