CS:GO - Does the Deagle need Changing?

469 144 Näkymät

Recent discussions on Reddit have proposed that the Deagle needs changing because it's too inaccurate, and inflicts too much damage! Would changes to the Deagle encourage 'proper' usage, and would this be good for the game?

  • Deagle needs to go 3 shot kill to the body. I can't recognize the game anymore. The is no round that doesn't involve people instacrouching and pressing mouse 1 as fast as they can to overpower most rifles close range if you don't headshot immediately. Theres just no risk since its so cheap and little to non counterplay close range. Its like a shotgun you can fire as fast as you press mouse 1.

  • what if there was no inaccuracy when standing still at all. would it really break the game?

  • the Deagle has no recoil pattern. It has completely random recoil. It also has a lot of spread. Valve should nerf the damage, buff the headshot multiplier, buff the shit out of it's standing accuracy and give it an actual recoil pattern.

  • It's a broken gun. Must be nerfed! I don't know how many matches i've watched the last 6 months where a 700$ investment on a eco-round and a few lucky headshots changes the entire match. It's a joke that it has been left like this for so long...

  • Actually, if the R8 would make you stuck after firing it with the time it curently takes to shoot it, had no rapid fire mode and coul be made very accurate at range, with low amo capacity, it woul almost be like the Quake railgun, I' say it's an interesting concept but, if we make a uake Railgun style weapon, how about a replacement weapon for either the AWP, which woul be a sniper rifle, with iron sights instead of a scope, like, an AWM?

    sla qualquer coisa memosla qualquer coisa memo13 päivää sitten
  • Either make the revolver an instant shot, longer range deagle, so more accuracy and less damage drop off. with low primary fire rate, so cant be used to spam body shots. Or make the deagle have more accuracy, more like 35m when standing, always 1 tap hs no matter what distance. Aiming the crosshair on someones head across the map, while moving and then having to counter strafe and click at the right time and also before you get shot. All that is hard enough already, why is there some bs rng that just says no not today.

  • Accuracy is fine. I do, however, think there is an argument to drop the damage so it takes three bodyshots to kill someone.

  • idc what anyone says. the deagle is the 2nd worst pistol in the game behind the glock. its just so evident in the new warmup. ill aim specifically for the chest it gets me a headshot, i aim at the head it either misses or gives me a body shot. if a pistol is inaccurate its pretty much useless. no wonder so many silvers get clean headshots with this thing, its the closest thing to "bloom" in counter strike. rewards people for being inaccurate. Nobody's getting better at aiming using this gun.

  • I don't understand stand how a similar game like valorant has hit registration, accuracy, and damage / damage fall of so well optimized that shots are either you hit or you didn't. Unlike csgo where bullets will literally go through enemies without doing any damage whatsoever even when standing or crouching. I have not played much of valorant but a ton of cs. Can someone explain? Is it 64 tick servers or the client vs server side of hit reg of csgo? Or is it that valorant just struck gold?

  • You’re telling me the Deagle is more accurate at range than the AK? I call bullshit. It doesn’t feel that way at all.

    Greg FGreg FUukausi sitten
    • 3kliksphilip We’re talking about improving gameplay, so yea feeling matter dude. Yea you’re right about effective range, but looking at that chart there’s plenty more that explains why the deagle doesn’t feel as accurate. For instance, the deagle’s standing bullet accuracy jumps from 6.2 to 21.36 compared to 7.01 to 8.64 with the AK on just the second shot. Or the recovery time between shots being more than double for the AK. Doesn’t matter what that number says if it has low external validity. When I play the game, I’m not taking single shots at specific distances while standing still. I would be curious how people would respond in a poll asking which feels more accurate at a distance.

      Greg FGreg FUukausi sitten
  • I'd like the deagle to be more accurate while standing still. It breaks balls when you miss 100% sure kills because of rng. Also I'd like it to be a bit more accurate when doing strafe shots, sometimes those just feel so random even when movement and timing of the shot are ok. Sometimes the shot goes god knows where and sometimes to the center.

  • now I hate csgo, and I don't play anymore. I think the deagle should be what we think it is. That gun that you shoot one shot from and hope to get that clean snipe from across the map... It should have less drop off, slightly more accuracy (like 5-10 meters more) and have the same damage, because even if you think you'll two shot someone with it you still need to hit chest then head/stomach. so you have to be at least slightly accurate when missing the head to be able to two shot iirc. Either way I think it should reward players for aiming more rather than less considering it is .50

    DarrkDuckyDarrkDuckyUukausi sitten
  • The deagle to me has always been a gun that rewards accuracy and reaction time and has also been a way to win eco rounds against rifles, but when you can't rely on that it ruins the gun and makes the game just frustrating.

  • Woody wasn't complaining about the accuracy of the Deagle, they mentioned the reliability of it. Two very different factors, and an issue that simply doesn't occur (anywhere near as often) with any other gun. Anyone who uses the Deagle, even against offline bots can see that bullets are prone to simply ignoring heads and travelling through them like it's nothing. It is undoubtedly a broken weapon and I think Woody has suggested some reasonable changes, not for previous CS titles' sakes, but in the interest of players of this game.

  • My 'problem' with deagle in csgo, if you can call it that, is that I remember making the cleanest HS in the history of 1.6 while running and stopping (to an almost standstill position) at the end of the long a all the way up to a guy located at the top of the hill of the bombsite A. That must've been like a 1.5 up to twice the distance showcased in the 'accuracy' segment of this video. Deagle in 1.6 was pretty darn accurate and definitely lived up to its designed purpose of slanging those moist and exquisite, long-distance headshots.

  • The deagle's accuracy is fine. I never expected to hit long range shots with it, but it is nice surprise when I do. I like slothsquadrons' modded changes. I think the problem is everyone expects weapons to hit headshots whenever they are aiming at the head. When that doesn't happen, they assume it is a crappy weapon or player. In particular, people buy a deagle to make headshots so it gets noticed more when it misses. The real problem with the deagle is the close range body shot damage. For $700 you can spam and 2-tap at close range instead of buying a mag-7. I feel like the average m4 or ak body spray up close kills slower than a $700 deagle.

  • Sloth's balance idea is kinda what I had in mind too. When I play deagle it's mostly in eco rounds or combined with a Shotgun/SMG so I get some ranged damage. However it makes no sense that the damage drop-off is this bad. It's not unlikely to only deal 20 damage on cache or inferno mid into the chest.
