The new update: AWP bug

    Howdy ho.

    The new update Valve brought us yesterday has made a lot of improvements, and with good, there is bad to come.
    This time, the zoom-in time they've reduced on the AWP seems to have created a new glitch which allows players to shoot with the AWP like 4 times in 1 second. All they have to do is quickly switch to another wep or knife and switch back to AWP and fire. There is no delay in bringing up the AWP into your hands, which allows this to happen. I've created a demo, for those who'd like to see it in action.


    Shooting while zoomed in is also pretty quick, but with no scope it's kind of inaccurate. Take a look at it or try it while you're in game.
    Regards, Slish.

    Im auctually in the game your in, and i've noticed that its almost like a pistol and wow, just wow. Anyways to fix this?

    It's up to Valve to fix it, my intention with this thread is to alert people that this is regarding the new update, and has nothing to do with the server or such. Also if admins see this happen, they wouldn't think it's a hacker.

    I'm 110% happier now since I get to shoot faster with the awp :smile: But then there's time where it won't shoot for a few seconds when you do it. So we just have to sit here and wait for Valve to fix it.

    There's always an option to restrict it until the bug is fixed >.>

    There isn't much anyone can do except wait for Valve to fix it.. But it was a great idea to make sure everyone knew what was going on.

    I've disabled the AWP on ZM/ZE servers for the time being

    it would be bad if admins also took advantage of this, and used it as well.

    Because that would be a bad thing to do.

    I hope they fix it SOON! I miss the AWPS!!!!!!

    We just updated but didn't take a look at the changelog yet.

    CSS is updating right now. (~4:25 PM PST). I don't know if it's the fix to the AWP bug, but I suspect it is.

    Mhmm it doesn't seems like a css problem. The awp is totally fine on another server. weird
