CS:GO AK and M4 Tweaks

Neejrow

Counter Strike Global Offensive has had some significant weapon tweaks in the latest update, which might effect the way people aim and shoot.

I'm sure our resident CS:GO players from Team Remorse might have some things to say about this!

Below is the blog from the developers at counter-strike.net which goes in to detail about the changes.

Second Shot

Today we’re shipping a new accuracy recovery method and new recovery rates for the AK-47, M4A1-S, and M4A4.

Accuracy Recovery Rate

Accuracy recovery rate determines how quickly the accuracy of a weapon returns to its baseline value after firing. It was previously expressed as a fixed value, but is now split into initial and final values.

Now shorter firing sequences can be designed to recover accuracy faster than longer ones, and the recovery rate for tapping/bursting/spraying can be tuned independently.

Goals

The goal is to allow players to develop and express their skill using a variety of methods of firing a weapon, by increasing the effectiveness of tapping/bursting relative to that of spraying.

Previously we shipped an update to the AK-47, M4A1-S, and M4A4 accuracy recovery rates with that goal in mind, but due to limitations of the system, the solution we employed had a downside which was a smaller but still noticeable detrimental effect on tapping and bursting. We reverted that change and went back to the drawing board, still with the same goal but without those trade-offs. Ultimately that led us to this new way of handling recovery rate.

AK-47, M4A1-S, M4A4

To start, we’re shipping new values for the AK-47, M4A1-S, and M4A4.

These three weapons are now slightly more accurate while tapping/bursting than before. Individual bullets can be fired more quickly without sacrificing accuracy, and accuracy recovers more rapidly after short firing sequences. Spraying is still advantageous in many engagements, but has the trade-offs of slightly worse accuracy towards the end of the spray and slightly slower recovery afterward.

Here are examples of how inaccuracy accumulates with the AK-47 before and after today’s change:

Next Steps

Today’s values are just a start, as we’ll continue to measure and tune them over time. One of the best ways to give us feedback about these new values is to play the game so we can gather accurate usage statistics, so hop into a game and try them out!

User Feedback


I think this change will have the greatest impact on crouch sprayers and people who's play style revolves around having accurate spray control but the side affect will be rapid ADAD strafing returns and IMO will be a detriment to the game.

These changes may draw me back. Tap headshots for days and adad no homo body sprays.

After playing with it for a bit I feel like it hasn't made too much of a difference but it might take a little bit of time for people to develop different styles and change past habits
