How much effort does it take to write M4?

Who knows? Maybe he finds it easier to use given that he only likes to tap anyway ))
2021-05-06 05:36
my guess is that it's easier to tap with
2021-05-06 05:37
huNter taught him to use him A1s. He told him your spray is pretty bad anyway, so you can use it
2021-05-06 05:40
ez tap tap, thats why screaM used to use it too.

honestly, i loved m4a1-s but it really didnt fit my play style because i never liked playing in tap positions anyway, so i switched to m4 and i started improving more, even tho i use M4a4, a1s has a special place in my heart
2021-05-06 08:55
m4a4 easiest recoil in the game after mac 10

hmmm... I think the Negev has the easiest recoil after 15 bullets, its actually a laser beam :D
2021-05-06 10:37
its good

because its alright. G2 has it in their strategy to buy more util, augs and awps when they can it seems.

Afaik, the first bullet accuracy is higher (high success %) with A1-S. So, great aimers can prefer A1-S. However, it's firerate is bad and hence people that don't aim for the head, but rather use bursts/spray to kill, should use A4. There's actually an effective hack with M4, as explained by launders, because of the recoil, which really helps. That's why most players use A4, unless they are very confident of their aim and are always willing to rely on it.

That would be tough to find, because his videos are very detailed and analysed, each of 30-40 mins, and titles can be deceptive. Basically, what he said was - The way the M4A1-S is designed in CSGo, is that it will have a higher 1st-bullet accuracy than M4A4, at all distances. What that means is, even if you aim at the head with a gun, the bullet will not hit the head 100% of the time (that's the way guns are coded, to simulate reality). But, M4A1-S will exactly hit the target (your crosshair) with a higher probability than M4A4. So, if you have a great aim + crosshair placement, or you are naturally talented with flicks to the head, a high 1st bullet accuracy will be very very helpful to get headshots. If your aim isn't that great and you will end up spraying to get the kill, get M4 because it's firerate and mag-size is higher.

The 2nd point is that, most pros don't rely just on aim to win duels, since many players have good aim. Most duels are won with better positioning and awareness. Hence, M4A4 is more versatile, especially because of this trick: And he described a trick used often by Astralis players with M4A4 - a special type of crosshair placement where you aren't even looking for the 1st shot headshot. You aim at the stomach/low chest area as you crouch peek, and then walk. That way, if opponent was aiming at your head-level, they will have to adjust aim and move crosshair down on your head, but stomach is a 2-shot kill while chest is a 3-shot kill (so higher firerate of A4 helps), so you are at an advantage. Most importantly, if you aim like this, if you leave crouch button, your crosshair will automatically land on a standing enemy's head (physics), whereas if he was also crouching, your crosshair will already have been at his head (since you were aiming at stomach height). He just explained this and lots of other nerdy stuff with live demos and all. I just remember this, cuz it sounded like a really neat trick xD.

+1 Launders is a really big-brained analyst, who has true understanding of every aspect of the game, be it guns, movement, strats, meta, literally everything. To top it off, he is an ex-pro, a Faceit Level 10, who often outfrags Pimp (lol), and a caster. Launders is really underrated, I feel....
2021-05-06 09:37
ah, i already knew that. i thought it was perhaps something a bit less known. he mentioned the astralis low crosshair placement in the recent b1t inferno video aswell. thanks for explaining tho, it might help some newer players around here.
2021-05-06 10:30
Higher accuracy, so you take long range fights with easy, higher tagging so easier to tap with and lower price so you get to buy flash to bang your enemies with

there is genuine benefits to using it, and if it fits your play style then it can arguably be better. Its also nice for the economy if you're an awper. I switch back and forth alot. Really just depends on what map I wanna play or if I wanna just wanna switch it up.
2021-05-06 06:17
i rather play with A1S because i dont need to practice the spray pattern, since its so easy i end up having more time to practice AK instead. it also fits my playstyle
2021-05-06 06:36
it's cheap
2021-05-06 06:52
The pros for the a1s are > cheaper > smaller recoil I doubt NiKo cares much about the smaller recoil because we all know how good he is, so the only reason why is because it’s cheaper

I looked it up 0.5 meter more accurate range, barely anything I definitely think NiKo is using it for the extra $200
2021-05-06 08:31
reduced price allows him to buy scoped weapons like aug and awp more frequently

HuNter used it before, and as they are cousins he might have talked him into using it. Other reasons might includes him being an Awper for G2 before AmaneK was, so the price would be important, and the fact that the weapon has more acuracy, wich is good for him, because he is, you know, NiKo

for juan taps
2021-05-06 08:41
Because it's a better fking gun with it's price usually. >more accurate >better at spamming smokes >2900 dollars +5 bullets and slightly higher rate of fire is not worth getting A4. I don't know about pros but at least I found myself able to afford A1-s but not A4 so many times that I decided to change my load out. Sometimes I just get AUG when I'm rich. I'm telling you pros aren't always correct. A1-s or AUG are the way to go.
2021-05-06 08:42
So you want to change it too now?

its more accurate it awards great aimers
2021-05-06 09:25
Because niko is a silent guy
2021-05-06 09:40
He also uses krieg, no idea... maybe cuz cheaper so he can buy AWP

Why not? A1S u just need to tap and niko is probably the best player in doing that rn he is one of the best aimers that ever played cs. So why not using a1s when u have good aim and at the same time ur tap player known for taping people and giving headshots and not spraying(Not saying he is bad at it). +its cheaper then a1 and g2 is known as a team that love to have much utility.
