A $500 pistol will kill an enemy wearing a helmet with a single headshot provided the enemy is close to you
Meanwhile, this $3100 rifle won't kill an enemy wearing a helmet with a single headshot even if he's right in front of you
How retarded is that?
The AK is a oneshot HS regardless because of it's recoil relative to that of the M4. If the M4 had to have oneshot HS potential, it would require a nerf in it's recoil pattern, thus increasing it's recoil or possibly making the bullets per minute lower than it's current state.
It's a great gun as it is.
If the M4 had oneshot HS in very close proximity it would still be an inferior gun when compared to the AK
It just doesn't make sense that a five seven is more dangerous in close quarters than the strongest CT rifle
i dont really understand the arguments against what you said. i guess you didnt say the m4 has to 1shot, but the 5-7 shouldnt, which i agree on. it makes it broken. a pistol shouldnt be more viable than a rifle in anything.
The usefulness of a weapon in CSGO is a combination of dmg - accuracy - recoil - reload time - magazine capacity - ROF and price. The M4A4 is fine and has been one of the must balanced weapons in the game for years. I almost never see anyone complaining about it (and I don´t agree with you btw) and that´s probably why the M4A4 hasn´t been tweaked since 2016.
