I say yes; its weak as hell. Me and my friend started up our server to test it out and it took 4 headshots ( with helmet ) the kill a guy who was standing still! i cant think of any shityer gun in any game ever. if u can think of a worse one say so. no melee weapons only GUNS!

    4? I was being stupid and rushed my friend with a shield and a Five-seveN. It took maybe two shots to kill him with a headshot.

    It isn't that bad. i use it quite a bit. it is accurate and does more damage than a glock at long range. it has a large magazine and a fast firing rate. the 5.7mm round is made for armor piercing. now im not sure if the game takes that into account but it certainly doesnt take 4 shots to the head to kill someone with a helmet.

    57 is awesome, quick fire and 20 bullets, you can kill them while they are reloading, plus its good for whipping out on unsuspecting people.

    Glock burst fire = 1 shot HS

    Dualies are good too.

    There is no worst gun in fps history.
    The real problem is that you people dont know how to use the guns.

    Every weapon takes practice. Sadly, the Five-Seven is completely overshadowed by the Desert Eagle.

    I buy the gun sometimes, and my skill has improved with it since I got the Hush Puppy for Five-Seven skin.

    Overall, the Five-Seven is not that powerful, but quite accurate. If you try it out more, you will eventually get better with it. Next time you want to buy a Deagle, be a rebel and reach for the Five-Seven instead.

    And the worst gun that I have ever used in an FPS (in my opinion) was the Klobb from Goldeneye 007.

    Interesting the 57 is made the expensivest gun.i guess its cool if u practice and play with it,but players play iwth m4a1 and desert,who would win


    whoever has the best aim. a headshot with either weapon would screw up your aim, so if you dont die from the first headshot a second hit pretty much anywhere will kill you.

    Another overshadowed gun is a glock on semi-auto

    Many people in Canada are unaware that the glock is the standard police force gun

    It is quite reliable in CSS as well and i buy it even when im a ct

    The ELF gun from Tribes 1 is a strong contender for worst FPS gun in history.

    I think a lot of the guns in CS/CSS are a waste of space though - half the SMGs and half the pistols are not serious options - you just use them when you're goofing around.

    Reliability isn't really an issue in cs:s. ive never had a gun jam, or a bullet misfire in cs:s. =/

    In comparison to the other weapons in the game, it is very weak and the damage falls off faster when range is considered than most of the other weapons, other than the mp5, which is about the same. I find that in semi auto it is almost useless unless i can get consistent head shots to throw off the other persons aim. But if you are facing someone who is better than you and they have something powerful like a p228 or a desert eagle, you don't stand a chance.

    As for it being a standard police weapon, i have noticed it being phased out. I see more sig p226's and beretta 92fs's than i do glocks.

    In cs source i would say the p228 in the moving actions, then the glock in the standing action they are kinda unaccurate at it, other guns are fine and the 57 is like crazy shit on the long run, you can keep shooting and shooting

    My best contender for the worst gun is the H11 from SF3. You can continually empty clip after clip (each clip is 50) and the enemy won't die!

    The 5-7 is the most accurate headshot pistol its just you have to get the perfectly on face headshots to kill and hihg chest shots.

    the gun i hate the most is the 1911 from dod source. it may just because my pc is a pos but i cant hit ne one with it unless im reallllly close

    5-7 is good, the gun in real life actually goes through most kind of armor since the bullet 5-7 uses are more sharp than what most gun uses. So it should be pretty damaging against enemies with kevlar but i dunno what was wrong with Valve's resources =(

    5-7 does suck if you ask me, just for sprayers or close rapid firing.

    Worst gun was the Klobb in Goldeneye 64, i think someone already beat me to that though...

    Yeah, the best I get with guns I never use are just reskins, not custom-made ones...

    I agree with the ELF gun statement, I don't know anyone who used it other than for softening up turrets, and that in itself took too damn long, that's why I always played War2003, it actually made the ELF good.

    What about Half-Life 2's 9mm? Twenty-five shots for the win in multiplayer!

    Actually he was right. The glock is probably the most commonly used handgun in the police force, despite the fact you saw a couple officers carrying berettas and sigs. This mainly because of it's simple mechanics, fast shooting and light weight. If you knew much about being a cop, those are probably some of the most important characteristics you'd look for in a gun. As for its performance in CS, id have to agree with the other guy, because of it's capacity, it's a great side-arm. You just got to be familar with it and know how to use it to be good with it. Sometimes i'll go about every round using a glock, even when im going up against ak's and m4's, ill still be sucessful. It's all about how you use it.

    The Five-Seven is a good gun if you know how to use it, i got 4 kills in a row with it by storming T spawn alone, but i prefer the USP or DEagle, but you cant buy a 5-7 for the first time and think you will own with it, it takes practice.

    As for the glock, it depends on the person using it and the situation. I've got a few kills with glock when the person i killed had an M4 or an AWP.

    And the worst gun in FPS history: I dont think there are any, because if someone sucks with the weapon, another person might own with it, so its about wich weapon you suck with in FPS games, not everyone else.
