I really like this game but i find it frustrating when i cant do well.the people i started playing with have told me that my aim is ok but i have a very slow reaction time.I know that past a certain point i cant make it any faster but i was wondering how to make it a bit quicker so i stand a chance.

    If that fails, well, go outside do something worthwhile.

    Set your sensitivity higher, or get a better mouse and/or surface for the mouse.

    Also, train you eye to pick up anything that's moving on the screen. your eye and arm must work together to get the best reaction time. my sensitivity is 1.8 (Yes one point eight) and i still own pretty good.

    Theres no point in posting your sensitivities. It all depends on your mouse and mouse settings.

    I remember using 1.4...so it doenst matter if you use 14 or watever

    The common rule was that 1 clean movement would move you 360 degrees I think. Or maybe it was 180.. >.>

    Get a Razer mouse and enjoy "on-the-fly" sensitivity adjustment.

    It all depends on you sensitivity settings, mouse, mouse-settings and possibly video card settings.

    If it's not that, maybe your FPS is too low.

    My other answer:
    To speed up a chemical reaction, adding a catalyst will do so. An inhibitor will slow down a chemical reaction. Enzymes in your body acts as a catalyst and speed up chemical reactions. (This is what i've learned in science class). :)

    I can suggest a few things that might help.
    1) Learn Your Mouse Settings.
    I believe this is more important than having a good mouse and stuff. You must keep playing untill it gets imbedded in your head that moving your hand [this] much will move your crosshair [this] much on screen. Once you get this down, you'll be able to quickly snap the crosshair within close range of your target. After the quick snap, fine tuning can be done for precise accuracy.
    2) Stay Focused.
    If your constantly looking around for the enemy, you'll have a greater chance of finding him/her. Sure that new model or skin you just downloaded looks sweet, but did you download it to look at it? or OWN with it? Pay attention.
    3) Listen for Any Sounds
    If you hear gunshots comming from your left, turn and beprepaired. You can increase your reaction time if you already know where the enemy is. Combine this with looking at your radar frequently. If you hear water splashing behind you, but see on radar that there are no friendlies behind you, then it must be an enemy. Turn and get ready. Take cover if possible, and surprize them.
    4) Learn The Map.
    Know where the spawn points are and all possible routes to and from them. Also learn typical camping spots and stuff like that. The more you know about a map, the better.
    5) Watch the Clock.
    This goes hand in hand with part 4. My little rule is that the game will get more and more unpredicible as time passes. For example, at time 0 you know Exactly where all the ts and cts are (their spawn points), but as time passes, they could be further and further away from that point. What this means is that at the beginning of the round, don't spend time worrying and checking if there is an enemy behind you or in that dark corner because they're not gonna be, theyre gonna be near their spawn. After a few mintues go by that mentality should fade away and be replaced with the thought, "Alright, 3 mintues have passed, they could be anywhere".
    6) Predict Other Players
    This is where part 4 and 5 combine to make your score go up and everyone else think you wallhack. Combine your knowledge of the map and probability based on the current time to determine if you believe there is a good chance of an enemy being around the next corner. If you think there is a good chance someone is there, be prepaired. have your gun already aimed at upper chest level and in the general direction of where you think they are. This decreases the ammount of time you need to spend aiming before firing because your crosshair is already gonna be so close to the enemy. And if there is no one there... well, it doesn't hurt to be prepaired.

    Thats alot of stuff I suppose, but I think it'll help. All of these things come with lots of PRACTICE.
    Good luck and happy hunting =)

    hellz yeah, 10 :)

    Yes anything that moves point your crosshairs at, but dont fire untill youre sure its an enemy. you need a good mouse, mouse pad, sensitivity and good concentraion. As well as surround sound (headphones) all of these will increase your reaction time, and improve your gaming. Aim for the chest, let the recoil hit the targets head. If youre comprimised to spray at medium range aim with the top crosshair. Also set the crosshair color to something thats vibrant and that youre comfortable with. Make sure you can see it no matter what youre aiming at.
