On how to play? I can offer a couple. 1) Don't full auto. Seriously, unless they are about 2 feet away, and you're aiming at their stomach, don't full auto. You might kill them sure, but you also waste 30 bullets, when a well placed burst of 3 or 4 shots to the chest or head will take them out. 2) Get good with each gun- This is important. Some people ONLY play with one type of gun, and that limits them in certain situations. Sure the M4 is good, but don't only use that. You won't have that gun in all situations, and other guns can be just as effective if used correctly, so practice with other guns, like smgs, and pistols. You save money that way too, and can spend it on armor, nades and flashes. 3) Jump around corners. This a good idea, for a couple reasons. First of all, most people are aiming at head level when they go around corners or are walking around normally. WHen you jump at encounter spots, you gain a few moments while they have to readjust their aim. Secondly, you can be already aiming down where somebody might be. 4) Learn all the camping spots. Even if you don't use them, its good to know exactly where they are in the maps you play, so you can check them quickly for hostiles. 5) Learn the maps like the back of your hand. I can run backwards looking at the sky though dust 2, aztec, dust, etc. If you get flashed, it helps if you can still navigate your way to cover, plus get to objectives faster. 6) Teamwork - I can't stress this enough. CS IS NOT AN INDIVIDUALS GAME! Stick with your team, do what people who are better then you ask you to do. Do not go off on your own. I have been in a clans server, and they thought they were good, and they were, each player by themselves, but they had no teamwork. So 5 pubbers were able to easily take down 6 clan members round after round after round because they kept splitting up, and we stuck together, or at the very most, split into two main groups and pinched the main encounter areas. I think thats it for now. If I missed anything, be sure to mention it.
ok teamwork i know cause i'm a teamplayer. so teach me to move up from stages heres mine in css (made up now) Used soldier, Soldier, Backup Sarge/commander, COMMANDER OF UR TEAM so from used soldier--> Soldier (tips)
Like I said, just get good, improve aim, etc. Being a good player isn't everything though, be a courteous player also, and people will respect you, and listen to you if you come up with a strategy. Dont call bs everytime someone gets a hs on you, etc.
ok hs?? umm please post in baby topic in pub (not being bossy but b4 i go offline) umm yeah thx still i wanna be A GREAT TEAMPLAYER. feel good! choopie

Aim a few feet behind someones head when they are running by, when you shoot there and you will hit their head hitbox and kill them. I know its a sneaky trick. Guns to stay away from: autoshotgun, fires 7 rounds in 3 seconds but rounds are weak and don't kill 3rd smg from the bottom(forgot name) it is to slow firing and too weak to kill.

Pethegreat™ Guns to stay away from: autoshotgun, fires 7 rounds in 3 seconds but rounds are weak and don't kill
I second that! Yesterday I hit someone with it and it did 9 damage in 1 hit. So, that means a man in the game could take 11 whole shots and still be standing there, ready to run a marathon. (I know about hitzones, however 11 shots anywhere is just ridiculous.) Learn when to use the silencer and when not to. If you're going around the back of the enemy, then obviously you should use the silencer. If there is 1 enemy left, don't use the silencer so that your teammates hear it. (That is of course limited to silencer guns. duh.) :beer:

When you see someone, use the AK or M4 and do one click after another. So 4 shots would be four clicks, instead of just holding it down. Makes it alot more accurate.
Don't listen to what Pethegreat said about the UMP, he obviously didn't learn how to use it. The UMP does fire slower then say, the mp5 at full auto, but it has a 45 cal bullet, same round as in the usp, and fires accuratly at full auto if you are standing still. Aim at chest, squeeze a few shots off, kill them every time. Every gun is effective if you know how to use it. Yes, even the autoshotty (althought I dont recommend it) Two or three quick shots to the head region, they're going down.[color=darkorange][/color]
Oh, and to elaborate slightly onto what Master of Gaming just said, if you're shooting at someone far away, sidestep before each shot, back and forth, like this: Shoot, step left, Shoot, step right, shoot, step left. It will make you harder to hit, and inexperienced players will start to full auto.
