Why do people do it? >to look cool > bad habit > obsessive compulsions What do you think and why do you do so? /Discuss
2019-02-21 09:03
dont even know why i started it, maybe indeed to look cool. but at this point it has long become a bad habit
2019-02-21 09:05
And soon from bad habit to obsessive compulsions
2019-02-21 09:06
i honestly doubt that

It used to be a method of cancelling reload animations. QQing with certain weapons (once the ammo counter reset) was faster than watching the full reload animation. Valve fixed this several years ago and now it's ust a bad habit that most people have. I'm sure there are a lot of new players that just do it because they've seen pros do it, but not actually know the reason.

It started in 1.6 where u shoot from awp and then fast switch for quicker reload animation Idiots
2019-02-21 09:09
Not talking about movement/awp switch -___- You see some people hold angle and try to qq for no reason.As a result they get caught off-guard. I am talking about them

well if you wanna shoot with awp but then move a bit, you want to unscope before moving. also sometimes you want to hold out the awp but are already scoped in and you dont wanna make the scope sound, you quick switch, its not that complicated. idk if you're arguing quick switching in general or using qq vs 3 1 but if its the second thing, its all about personal preference really, i use 3 1 because I had a terrible keyboard in the past that i couldnt double tap q very fast with so i had to use 3 1 and im just used to it now.

"What do you think and why do you do so? /Discuss" I believe i am missing no point by doing what OP asked
2019-02-21 09:41
Of course you think you didn't miss the point because if you did you wouldn't have missed it xD
2019-02-21 09:43
I meant when holding an angle /choke point and people switch back and forth for no reason. Not just awp but for all weapons in general
2019-02-21 09:47
United States ferric 
Well then that makes more sense because without that context any normal person would think you mean quick switching when theyre awping. Yeah its a bad habit for many, for me not as much. I rarely do it. I used to do it a lot because it kept me awake in slow games but then one time I really got fcked because someone peeked into me right as I was doing it and my teammates saw it hapoen so I just stopped doing it.

people got the habit, it's a bad one. it's like these players that can't stop inspect the weapon. it's nothing but i strongly believe it "forces" you to watch the gun and not the crosshair/game. or worse, people that reload really quick even when they still have 10-15 bullets left
2019-02-21 09:17
Lmao good one. That inspecting weapon at any crunch moment looks kinda distracting for the viewers. We can't help but watch the animation. I don't know why players do that or how they dont feel distracted. Maybe accidental :p

what is QQ?

It's an old habit from CS 1.6. For people using AWP it was faster to QQ than to wait for the whole reload animation.

keeping yourself very focused when youre statically holding angles at a very high level is mentally exhausting. Because your reaction needs to be instant at any given time. Players sometimes switch weapons for mental reset
2019-02-21 09:52
Finally a logical reply. All above you were talking about awp qq SMH
2019-02-21 10:01
Other delmaszm 
yeah i agree too. some players tend to do little up/down or circle while holding an angles too. it's safer i guess. Stewie2k been known for that. it's all about the mental fatigue and stay focused
2019-02-21 10:36
this is the reason imo!
2019-02-21 11:07
i do 1 - 3 1 -3 switching soo im basically god
2019-02-21 09:55
Bad habit but I never do it and pros certainly never should do it as it can fuck stuff up as we saw in the NiP game
2019-02-21 09:56
you press q to pass the time while you waiting

I never do that shit anymore! Been forever since I have done that purposely over and over.
2019-02-21 10:04
switching fo no reason is dumb. only do it to quickswitch with scout or awp AND WHO THE FUCK DOES QQ JUST PRESS 3 THEN 1 FFS ITS FASTER
2019-02-21 10:08
I do it to focus, if I'm staring at an angle for too long my mind starts flying away so I quickswitch to get back into the game.
2019-02-21 10:14
Makes sense. If it's for personal benefits/preference then okay

When you shoot whit the awp you can move slightly faster out of your position for free

its kind of a mental reset keeps you focused then you do it in worst moment
