AK47 and M4A1 accuracy
These rifles are almost completely useless when you fire while moving. While strafing left or right, quickly press the opposite direction and fire. The first bullet of the AK47 and first two bullets of the M4A1 always hits the crosshair. Always try to aim for the head.
- Use the following trick to avoid being caught defenseless after throwing a grenade. Press Q just after releasing a grenade. You will flick out your gun immediately after throwing the grenade. Note: This requires some practice.
- To get the maximum range on a grenade, run forwards in the direction you are throwing it.
First round advantage
On the first round it is advisable to buy Kevlar (body armor), as it takes in around 15% of damage done by pistols (which are only used in the starting rounds).
If your enemy attacks in surprise from an angle you
cannot see, it is always best to jump as your opponent will not
- In the storage room directly outside the projector room with the hostages, go to the corner. There is a door and three cabinets. You should be standing on the opposite side of the door, looking at the three cabinets. Look at the floor. The three cabinets will cast a shadow (if you have shadows on). Place a grenade directly on this corner and back out of the room. If placed correctly, when you re-enter the room the three cabinets will be stacked horizontally, forming a blocked doorway. The enemy can easily shoot the top cabinet off -- defense is still required.
- Another blockade can be formed in the terrorist spawn room (the one that has the desks on looking the hostages and couches). You can climb the desks, but there is also a small walkway with two doors to the left of the desk. You will see three small cabinets and a large cabinet next to the door. To the right of the large cabinet is a trash can. Be careful not to bump the trash can. Drop a grenade inside of it, hopefully falling at the correct location. This will force the three small cabinets in front of the doorway. If done perfectly, the large cabinet will be horizontal on top of them. Shoot the horizontal cabinet so that it is directly in the middle of the doorway with the left and right of it overlapping slightly on each side of the door. By doing this, if the large cabinet is shot, it will not fall into the small hallway, and the small cabinets will not fall over simply because the large one is on top of them. No one can jump over this. You can go inside the small hallway and crouch under behind the cabinets looking opposite. The only way the enemies can attack you is from the side you are looking at, and it is a very small opening, allowing you to easily kill them. Beware however; if an enemy throws a grenade at you, you are dead.
Buy the following in order to do it properly: shotgun (any kind), smoke bomb, Kevlar and helmet. You will also need lots of teammates. Play as a terrorist. Command your teammates to follow you. Go directly to the tunnel going to bomb site A. Shoot your opponents immediately. After doing that, have the bomb carrier immediately plant the bomb. After the bomb is planted, throw a smoke bomb into the wooden door. Stand beside the door and make sure you cannot be seen by your opponents. Use your shotgun to shoot opponents that come inside the door.
Enable the wc_create code at the console window. Then, go outside of the de_weedwood map. Look in the distance, and you should see a plot of land with rocks. Go to it. Some of the effects there are very interesting.
Beta version: Getting onto tall boxes without boost
Buy a frag grenade and stand next to the box that you want to get on. Throw the grenade opposite the box from you onto the floor. Jump, press against the box, and you will be boosted very high. If timed correctly you can get yourself on the box at a cost of 40 HP.
Play as a terrorist and on a server where you can pick
up weapons with no ammo. When you pick one up when you are terrorist
and it has some ammo, keep the gun. Try not to use any ammo/.
When the round ends, drop your pistol and keep you main gun (usually
an SMG like the MP5/40 or the UMP 77). On the next round you will
get your pistol back, but it will be equipped with more ammo.
If you check your main gun, you will notice that it to will be
equipped with more ammo.
