Get a high mouse sensitivity (try avoiding lifting your mouse when turning as much as possible).

When shooting: Always hold the walk button, strafe gently to the left & right and always shoot in small bursts.

That's everything i know ^^

Training with bots, although it sounds lame, WILL help you in terms of aiming, reaction time and getting a feel for the maps. You just keep playing til' you feel you're ready for the cruel, online world.

Another way would be playing servers on Deatmatch mode. You spawn, choose your guns (no $$$ required) and you're ready for some major killing. The cool thing is, when you die, you spawn right away, in some random place on the map. This, I feel, is THE most effective way of training your 1337 skillz0rz. I have to warn you though, the pace at which the game goes in those servers are sometimes horrifying.

As for things you shouldn't do in servers:

1) Don't block your team-mates when they're retreating, sniping
2) Flashbanging team-mates
3) Hurting your team-mates
4) Talk on your mic if you have a squeaky voice
5) Straying away from your team when you're the bombdude

Ping = Latency = The time needed for your information to reach the hosting server & back.

Don't rush into places, unless the whole team is rushing. Don't run round corners blindly, throw a flashbang or wait for some moron to run around and get killed if anyone is there or if he survives it's safe. Crouch, move slowly and fire in bursts. Reload whenever you get a chance don't just wait until your clip runs out. There's more I could add but most of it comes from practice, just go on a server and play. Sure you'll die alot at first but so does everyone else. You'll get better over time, just practice. It's probably better playing with real players rather than bots.

500's insane! (in a bad way)

Below 100 is good. Anything above that might be quite annoying and unplayable.

Try to always aim for a latency of less than 100, preferably 50 and lower for a good, stable connection

try connecting to servers which are closest to where you live would help with the latency i think.\


and when buying bullets, don't buy a full cartridge... its a waste of money.

Try get <150 servers, you can maybe play up to 200 depeding on how many people are on but, anything over 200 is too much.

Good ^^. But now for the other question, what connection do you have? (And do you have a firewall turned on, sometimes they happen to check the packets everytime you send them and cause a lot of lag)

You're screwed if you have a 56k modem though. And since you have a wireless connection, is your connection showing "Very Good" or "Very Bad"?

Well that should be good enough i suppose. Are you using steam to connect to Counter-strike, and are you connecting to the servers as close to you as possible?

#1 rule.

Don't spray. Click. When CT, best gun would to use would be the Colt (b 4 3)along with Deagle (b 1 4).

Also don't rush and look behind you every few seconds or I might just knife you.

I want a steam account because I only play on LAN with my friends and at net cafes. Any ideas how much it is for source and how it works? Do you have to buy the game by itself and then the steam account? Because last time I bought a CS game someone stole my CD key.

What are the codes for the filters on search servers? Like what do you type to get just deathmatches, just fun games etc?

Im a noob as well If any good people wanna train me (lol) message me for my steam.

Play with bots until you've mastered shooting accurately. After that, it's just practice.
Death to Ovation haters!
#31
Always carry the aimer at head level, and practice keeping it at head level changing between a crouching and standing target. Short bursts, 2 or 3 shots for medium, 4 or 5 for close, and 1 or 2 shot bursts for long range. Never run and gun, always stop, walk or crouch while shooting.


That's just for the AK/M4 BTW.

Don't. ****ing. AWP!

Honestly awp users can go die.

Awp = 50 Cal Sniper rifle (the big green one)

That aside... basically what everyone else said. Don't spray, crouch alot, and use frag nades. They really help.

does anybody have any other advice for counter strike??

if you want to keep your head, dont crouch. if youre playing against anybody half decent they'll probably be able to kill you within a second of them seeing you and im not even joking. learn the recoil patterns of the weapons so that you can fire in longer bursts and stick to the deagle, mp5, m4, ak and awps. playing against bots is good for improving accuracy and level layouts but the real meat and potatoes of counter strike is your 5vs5 matches where strategy is everything. also make sure you can place nades accurately, flash bangs are absolutely crucial, as are smokes.

Practice, practice, practice - and turn down your sensitivity as low as possible, you should be able to turn just barely 360 degrees when moving your mouse from one side of your mat to the other.

#36
If you don't like having to wait after you die, find a server that plays Gun Game. You start at the pistols, and every time you get a certain number of kills, you move up to the next gun. You won't get to choose which gun you want to use, but it's more fast-paced, and might help you learn the game quicker.
