Sprays For Counter Strike: Source
I have just created some functional spray logos. They do serve an actual function in Counter-Strike: Source. I created them based off of exact images of in-game player models for one reason: to mimic the silhouette of a terrorist or counter-terrorist. After many hours of testing online through various servers, I have come to one conclusion: While this is a new type of spray-logo, and people aren't used to seeing these "dummies" yet, they fire at the dummies approximately 20%-50% of the time they see them within the first 2 seconds. This may not seem like much, but it instanly gives away the shooter's location, and I have personally experienced a slight advantage with them. I have seen an enemy ambush insdie a house turn into a counter ambush due to the entering terrorists firing at my CT dummy which was at the end of the hallway. I have also experienced success by placing a dummy aloft in a sniper's position, only to draw the fire of an enemy sniper in turn giving away his position.

Download and Extract .zip file to where you can remember it 2. Extract the .zip file in its current location 3. Run Counter-Strike: Source through Steam, and go into options 4. Browse to the folder you downloaded/extracted .zip file 5. Select either the Terror_Dummy.tga or CT_Dummy.tga (reflective upon same as your current team) NOTE: Some servers do not reflect an in game spray logo change immediately and can take up to 5 minutes for changed spray to show change. I recommend you select your spray before joining a server and picking that team. 6. Use your spray logo key (default "t") to spray Dummy Target onto a wall. To get best effect, I recommend crouching, and getting fairly close to a wall (not too close) and aim down near the bottom of the wall (low but not too low, a second image will paste itself to the ground if you are too low, which is not what you want). For best server response time, DSL or faster is recommended. On a slow dialup it can take up to 2-3 minutes for your spray to become uploaded to the server so the rest of the players can see it. On a fast connection it shouldn't take more than 20-30 seconds. Implications: After a dozen hours of testing, I have found that roughly 20%-50% of people will shoot at these "dummies" within the first 2 seconds their peripheral vision see's their outline. Obviously this is a one trick poney. While it works in a clutch, don't rely on this as a crutch. It works espcially well indoors and in dark areas. For even better results, try placing dummy on a wall on top of a crate, or elevated object that would be common to find a player. Downside is a spray-logo dummy will not move, hence it will only fool someone between 2-6 seconds. Obviously the further away the enemy is, the longer it will take for them to identify this as a spray logo dummy. And if a dummy is sprayed too far up on a wall, it will take less than 1 second for them to figure it out. Placement is crucial! Enjoy watching the bullet holes appear on your dummy!
