Well for me set a good mouse sensitivity set anything too fast will make head shots alot harder or even impossible. Bunny hoping will mess up your aim if trying to get a head shot, only because you have to move your mouse about alot to bunny hop right. Sprinting and trying to head shot can be done but normal running will give you a higher chance of a head shot. Also bind "toggle_zoom" I only use this is a player is too far away to get a good shot. And last have a good crosshair there's some good crosshairs Here http://www.bullseyecrosshairs.com/hl2sites1.shtm I use this one

This is what I do I find getting head shots easy Cool but the mag is my favorite weapon. Wink

O_o nice, im take it too, very good Very Happy im hope it is not cheat? Wink

be careful with toggle zoom, there are many servers out there that dont allow it, and you will only find this out when you are kicked and banned.

personally I found it less useful than the suit zoom, but thats personal preference.

I think toggle zoom is a cheat because you can not add it in the game options and is unfair on new players who would not have a clue how to
use it.

Using suit zoom and letting go as you shoot is the way to use it and it takes some skill.

I thought you meant his crosshair. I dont know about toggle zoom. not a cheat but it can apparantly be considered a script. its not really useful anyway, zooming will mostly get you killed.

I personnaly find the toogle_zoom very usefull in lots of case on dm_lockdown and dm_overwatch, there are lots of spots to use it and be more effective.
I don't see why it should be considered as a cheat and even more a script since it's a feature of the game, that you activate via the console, like the hud_quickinfo, etc..

It's an normal Console Command. Just like normal Zoom without the need to hold the key pressed.

They probably planned to implement this, decided different and forgot to take it out. Who knows.

However, it's not a script (automated command chain) or any 3rd Party addition. It gives an advantage to those who know about it - just the same as many other official console commands that aren't commonly known (net_graph, rate-settings and so on). Wink

[ontopic]I try to grab a Mag before aiming. It works just better since I figured that out[/ontopic]

I have not used this console command as I would feel that I was cheating by using it .... some others do not have such weaknesses Sad

Please can we have clear info from TSGK if this command is OK or not. Exclamation

it's not a script but it allows firing while zoomed, exactly as a zoomscript would. this has been deemed as unacceptable by some server owners, and using it there would get you a ban.

for some strange reason CAL rules allow it, even though it does the same as a zoomscript without being one... confused?

you could say it's like messing around with your rates to give you an advantage. no it all makes sense, the extreme nature of the mag aiming skillage when it comes to long range shots!

first i have heard of the toggle zoom command, if its built in then I think it is acceptable (Though a little unfair on players that don't know about it), but scripting it is just a no no. Old versions of Quake went the way where scripting became the norm for players where 1 button makes you select a rocket, launch rocketjump yourself in the air then spin you round 180 Degrees automatically.

Personally I hate zoom and just prefer to waste a couple of shots trying to get it on target. Failing that use Xbow. Failing that run @ them frantically with a Stick.

I was bhopping and got a mid air head shot Shocked

Yes the Z zoom does help to get a headshot on a long range target standing still.

Lately I've been bunny-stopping quite a bit. Wink Still working on the hop.

I aim with the mag like I aimed with the sniper in Halo: quick flick my wrist over their heads and click when it's appropriate. I do pretty well but I'm NOTHING on those mag pros out there. Someday.. Rolling Eyes

Are you able to aim precisely when using the wheel to jump? If so, you're my hero! I can barely press fire (LMB) without messing up my aim Laughing Embarassed Very Happy

Thanks, I can go straight really well like that, but whenever I hit strafe I stop whenever I next touch the ground. Am I timing it wrong?

When you have jump on the wheel, you can put primary fire on the space bar. i'm no good at it, but I know players who have an extra +attack bind on it, and use it to shoot while bhopping.

thats my crouch button because I canīt use the shift->ctrl variant. the bhop is actually more a sort of moving faster around the map move, itīs not that good for fights. mostly I just strafe when I shoot.
