Im not very good with it, and i wanted some tips...
Okay, I would like to get better with the AK47, but i suck with it. When you use it, do you use bursts? if so what number? Some people say 3-5, but still i get sprayed before i do two bursts of 4. like im doing the bursts, and they kill me in a second with continiuous (bad spelling ftw) fire. im like whutt teh crap man.and also some people say to pull down and to your left/right when you shoot? is this true? pl0x help.
Just run around like a chicken with its head cut off and spray like an idiot. That always works. I guess if you really need to kill someone, single shots can do the job. Much else just gets ridiculous fast.
Actually, just don't use the AK. Pretty much any lesser gun is a way better buy. Galil is pretty much the same gun that trades damage for magazine capacity. MP5 works if you don't find yourself doing long range work a lot.
Strafe left and right in short movements, at the end of each movement, you have maximum accuracy, try it you'll see, at the end of each movement fire a 3 round burst. Only ever fire at the end of a movement, it jumps up the crosshair accuracy. Once you get the hang of it you'll notice your headshot count go way up.
As for standing bursts, aim for the neck or head for 3 round bursts, aim for the chest with sprays (unless face to face distance)
There is a style to using the AK-47, the professional way to use the AK is to aim at the head, shoot, and immediately after firing that first shot aim down towards the lower torso. It will almost always be a 1 hit kill.
Usually, you aim at the head from medium to far range, then crouch(if possible) and do a 3-shot burst. The reason you do a 3-shot burst is because it will give you a sort of triangle. Either one of these shots hits their head, or it makes a close triangle around their head.
Aim for the Neck/Head an fire 1-2 shots over long distance, 3-4 shots on medium range and spray in close quarters.
This is just a rough idea on how you should play, it always depends on the situation. Try to learn where the enemy's head would be if he pops out behind a corner and aim for it. If you get it right your reflexes will make the rest and blast his head off.
Just try one shot bursts, then move on to two, and 3 shot bursts. People have their own way of shooting, and yoju just have to develop your own, The M4 and AK I found were the hardest weapons to shoot, but I finaly got better. You just have to find the style right for you. It all depends on how accurate you are, how good your computer is, how good your internet is.
I usually use single shot for extreme long range
for middle long range i use 2-3 bursts
and for the close combat i use glue on my finger ;)
never use burst scripts i think it just prevents you from shooting correctly
I have a tip for you. Lower your sensitivity a bit, crouch and go for a headshot in 1-shot bursts. The first time I played CSS, that's what I did and I pwned quite a few of people, including a self-proclaimed pro.
At long range I tend to fire single shots. At Med-Long I fire in this pattern, where it's like 1 shot-2 shots-1shot (repeat) for short-med range it's more like 2 or 3 round bursts and up close it's more like controlled sprays (like 5-10 round bursts).
Up close aim for the head, and at med range aim for the upper torso/neck (because it can be hard to aim at the head of a moving target that's charging at you), at long range aim for the head also, because 1 shot should kill them anyway.
It depends on the situation. if they are right in your face then unload a clip into them just make sure that you hit them as well. if they are really far try3 burst or singleshot. i would advise you practice it on a DM server.....its like training that is online.
Two shot bursts are the best - not too much recoil. Three shots is in the limits, I wouldn't recommend using that. Remember that the AK is a long-range weapon, don't expect to get awesome über kills from a close distance with bursts.
Two shot burst for the win! Especially good for long range when you got a newb spraying from max distance =-p (I dint know my body was over there...wtf you shooting at n3w6??) Spraying with an ak doesnt usually work... the bust burst gun is obviously the clairion (bad spelling?) aim for the top of the chest and boom...headshoot. So kill a ct strip his ass of his clairion and ownage time.
1 shot bursts.. do not crouch, i dont care how much better the accuracy gets when crouched.. its to easy to get hit.. do not crouch!!! and at close range.. pretty much everyone gets startled when an enemy comes round the corner and sprays.. so aim at the feet and spray with em :D
DarkElfa Wins for the uber bump! Or wait, is it Srag who gets the prize...
Anyway, I prefer to 2-shot, but whenever I get the chance, I snatch up an M4A1 instead for its superior burst accuracy and higher Cyclic Rate.
Well the AK is definitely the best gun in the game that isn't cheap (*cough* AWP *cough*). Anyway, heres how you train to become an AWP star. First, create your own bot server, include 1 bot and make it a map you are comfortable with, assault, dust2, and (if you have it) fy_paintball are all good choices. Set the bot difficultly to it's hardest. Then go find your bot and fire your shots. (I explain my tactic in a sec). Then after you own him a few times, add more bots using the. bot_add_ct (or bot_add_t) command. Pretty soon, you'll be an AK all-star.
Heres how you fire.
When you first start out. you'll have a tendency to fire your shots and move the mouse at the same time. DO NOT MOVE YOUR MOUSE. It doesn't help with recoil, or anything for that matter. If they are medium range. (On dust2, from the T spawn to the end of the ramp) Fire 2-shot bursts, anymore and you risk a miss because of the wild recoil. At close range, it is acceptable to spray the AK in 10-15 shot bursts. At long range, it gets a little harder, you're gonna want to fire 1 shot only, and it has to be aimed at their head. Anymore than that and you are sure to miss from recoil. But the AK isn't really made for long-range shots now is it? However, it is very possible to aim for the chest and give 1 shot bursts. The opposing player probably realize where the shots are coming from. And they'll be dead before they find out.
