After holding down the fire button and depleting a clip, the gun will not automatically reload until the fire button is released.

Is this behavior by design, or is it a problem with my setup? MOUSE1 is bound to the "Fire" action, and Raw Mouse Input is disabled.

  • Just because other games do it, it doesn't mean all other games have the same mechanic.

    Are you implying that this behavior is by design? If so, consider posting an answer instead of downvoting the question and leaving a derogatory comment. Oct 6 '12 at 18:23

    Pretty sure it's supposed to be like that; most games do that so you don't just hold down the fire key.

  • @fbueckert I don't think TF2, L4D* or HL* work like this to be fair.

All iterations of the counter-strike games have functioned this way since the initial release.

Simply because other games use a different mechanic does not imply that all games do.

In Counter-Strike, the time you choose to reload your gun is a very strategic one, having it "auto-reload" takes away this mechanic.
