In this article, I will address the important topic of gun control. Players often ask questions such as “When should I use this shooting style over that one?" That is exactly what this article seeks to analyze. Rather than demonstrate the superiority of one style over another, I will attempt to show how each style is useful in different situations. First I will define 3 shooting styles, then I will examine the concepts of mobility and damage. Finally, I will apply these concepts to the shooting styles to construct 4 fighting styles.
Shooting style definitions:
Tapping – This is accomplished by tapping your mouse button instead of holding it down, firing off one bullet after another in rapid succession – traditionally 3 with the AK-47, 4 with the M4A1, for accurate bullet grouping.
Bursting – This is accomplished by holding your mouse button for the fraction of a second needed to fire a quick burst – traditionally 1-2 shots with the AK-47, and 2-3 with the M4A1.
Spraying – This is accomplished by holding down the trigger, compensating for recoil by pulling down and side to side.
I will discuss mobility and damage to help the reader understand the use of these styles.
A moving target is harder to hit than a stationary one. If you've ever played CSDM, you know that a target strafing at full sideways speed on your screen at almost any distance is a nuisance to hit. The reason why experienced players recommend
