A1-S, simply because it's better
a1-s only because I have nicer skin on it
I use a1-s cuz a4 is shit rn
A1-S is the better gun in 90% of scenarios.
M4A4 - for men
M4a1-s - for women
Nah to be serious, i just hate m4a1-s
m4a4 is superior for me personally
A1-S, 4 bullet kill to the chest with low recoil.
A1-S cause its better
but a4 is somewhat usable now cause of its magazine, before a1-s was really the only logical option
I use m4a1-s cause i play 1.6.
M4A4 for 2 reasons
Spearmint gloves + Poseidon
The way I hold my mouse makes me accidentaly right click a lot. Lost many fights to taking of supressor.
But If you could unbind taking of supressor I would use M4A1-S. (Not by unbinding mouse2 but with a seperate bind)
A4 because it feels easier to double-dink with
Silencer ofc, despite lack of bullets it's still a better gun to use in most of scenarios, low recoil makes kills easier and lower price let you buy it more consistently
i like to use both but A1 is better
I got m4a4 dropped to me a couple of times this week and it felt really nice, but when I put it in my loadout and tried a couple of games I realized it was just a case of variatio delectat. A1-s is still way better.
If you look purely at the stats of CT round wins. It’s clear since A1-S buff that CTs win more rounds so it’s obviously a better weapon overall.
A1-S is objectively better in pro play because pros don't cluster anymore especially after the 4 shot buff. You're not going to be spraying down 5 man rushes, and 90% of the time even if you do get rushed you'll get spammed down long before you can empty your clip with either A1-S or A4
that said, it's also better outside of pro play because A1-S is braindead to aim. So many peons suddenly turning into FACEIT Ten Tims because of this point and click adventure of a weapon. Anybody can reliably hit 4 shots with this gun, with A4 the combination of 5shot with greater inaccuracy + an actual recoil pattern means that you're either good enough to hit the headshot double taps, or you're whiffing 7, 8 bullets to spray down a single target a good amount of the time
TL;DR: use A1-S if you're not throwing, and if you suck (and you do)
I prefer M4A4, although I know A1-S is probably a bit better in current meta. But I prefer to die like a man
i have bad first bullet accuracy so m4a4
I was pleased with the A1-S revival because it has better skins.
Barring a minor few exceptions, even a very low float on most A4 skins have a lot of natural scuffs on them for some reason. I didn't notice it as much when I used Radiation Hazard, because it's a "scuffed" skin, but a lot of other skins are very nice and clean, but the A4 naturally fucks them up. Big L on the A4
A1-S because I have FT printstream
Five seven and save for auto sniper
a4 too expensive so I prefer a1-s
Valve should reduce the price to $2900
I still use the a1, but I want to use the a4 more often again on some maps where the silencer doesn't matter. I'm thinking mirage, overpass, dust2 and vertigo.
a1s player back then and a1s player now
A1-S until i can pick up an AK (but that depends sometimes on the Map and Position)
m4a1s. no tracers, recoil, i like a1s skins more than m4a4 skins... many reasons :D
M4A4 because i'm an anchor on all of the maps
M4a4 cuz I never really switched since like 2016 or sth
i know a1s better but i use a4 because i am a chad irl and in the game as well.
m4a1-s on all maps expect nuke, on nuke i change to m4 howl cuz i need more bullets.
A1s lasergun and bodyshot machin e
A4 sounds better also i have cool skin on it
idrc about which is more meta tbh
i mean i think it depends your game style, if you're playing mid close it would be logic to use a4 but if you're staying on site then a1-s, each is better in different situations
M4A1-S, because M4A4's 92-99 damage in 4 hits is tilting.
as someone who plays a number of roles, i try to be flexible. Most often that means bombsite anchor when teammates are struggling (ive become a master of a long on dust 2). For that reason I like high fire rate and extra ammo, despite the extra $200. I can use both tho and switch occasionally. The a1 needs an extra mag in reserve for me to go back full time.
A1-S, I have Player Two :D
a1-s because i cannot control spray
M4A1-S, damage, spray control, distance, no tracers
there is only one person in the world right now who looks like they actually perform statistically better with A4 over A1-S
If you're not Magisk use the silencer go brr gun
