Is the a1 nerf actually a buff?
Croatia KraljBrk 
I've been thinking about it, but it looks to me that teams are now using the a1 to it's strengths even more than before the a1-s nerf. CT's are specifically using the gun for body shots, smoke spams, and controlled burst. They aren't trying to use the gun the same way as before (i.e. spraydowns). It looks to me as if nerfing the gun, actually made the players abuse the gun in it's strengths more. The whole situation reminds me of the NHL making goalie equipment smaller to have more scoring (entertainment), but the goalies have actually gotten better as a result of it. So do you guys agree that the a1-s is actually more abused now than pre nerf?? TL:DR- Daily schizophrenia thread

more abused before but i guess you can say people are better at using it more effectively (adapted to update) with bursts etc.

Yeah ammo reduction

I feel like the same... teams just refrain the spamming a bit( need to coordinate with nades and teamplay cover). I remember from top teams, zywoo, magisk, and Hobbit sometimes use A4. I think it is situational

dont think so hard. be like xantares, just shoot enemy

its used in the same way as before (the ammo reduction nerf). Spamming through smoke is the meta as it was. Pros started abusing this dog weapon after 4-shots-to-kill buff but then realized how GOOD it is to just braindead spam through smoke. You dont get classic 88 in 4 with m4a1 as often as you do with m4a4.

You never get 88 in 4. A1s is 4 shot kill kill even from 2000 meters and legshots

That is not what he said. He said it's possible to get it with a1s ("not as often")

Then you could say that awp is not 1 hit kill or that AK doesn't one tap head

should be a good nerf but still not enough, though i doubt what valve can do though
2022-10-06 05:44
a4 needs buff
2022-10-06 06:40
lol it needs a real nerf not a reduction in ammo. The gun is way to easy to use, its a damn laser beam. The m4a4 actually took skill to get a perfect spray pattern, with the a m4a1 you can just kinda half ass it and the pattern is so narrow combined with how much dmg it does you get easy kills. CS should always prioritize what takes more skill IMO. At this point it's practically better than an AK

Im so bad at M4A4 compared to AK

It's not that it's a psychological buff, people just need to understand 25 --> 20 is hardly a nerf for a pro player. In theory you only need 10 bullets to ace a fully armored team, but more importantly, in this current pro meta because of how easy it is to multikill with A1-S hardly any teams are doing 5 man rushes, most players space out for trades instead of peeking two by two in huddled groups = A1-S is still king When was the last time you seen any M4A4 pro player spray all 30 bullets in a clip on a site defense? It never happens. On the other hand even though 95%+ players are running M4A1-S you see players die from running out of their 20 clip maybe once every 5, 10 games. It's not something happens frequently enough to be a meaningful downside once your aim is that good, you don't need a full clip to mow down and shut down a push.

probably, but the game would still be heavily CT sided on any map not named Inferno

yes its buff
2022-10-06 08:43
They simultaneously buffed it while nerfing it, it was hardly a nerf and only made some site anchors switch back to the A4
