Do you know of any time when the game is [not] counting the bullets you fire or registering any hits or misses? Would the time when there is this "Waiting for players" message be suitable? The reason I ask these questions is that, as mentioned in the main question in the title, I want to be able to just change weapons, test them out with different setups, suicide the kit character, switch to a different kit or weapon, test again, and rinse and repeat. My best guess is the "Waiting for players" screen, but I'm not 100% sure that firing bullets in the air during that time really doesn't count; I hope so. Can anyone confirm this or give me a different tip to test weapons? Many thanks for anyone taking the time to offer tips or information.
You can play on unranked servers. On unranked servers
You should be able to test any weapon there.
