Noob guns are usually called that way, because they're hardly used in e-sports matches and getting killed by it makes people look bad (which actually isn't true at all, they're just mad). The Counter-Strike community can be very toxic when it comes to weapon choice (equal to the MP7 in previous CoD titles), because they're pretty easy to use in public games. ...

I can't speak too much past what others have said on what specifically are seen as "noob guns" in CS:GO, but one thing I haven't seen mentioned yet that I think factors into what eventually get called as such are their skill floors and ceilings. In other words, how effective is a weapon when you first pick it up versus after you've used it for tens, hundreds,...

As an avid CS:GO player I can attest that besides gaining movement speed, there are very few situations when player benefits from random switching to knife/nade/pistol. Most importantly, you limit your reaction time in a game where fractions of second determine the winner. To understand the human nature of this behavior consider a typical round in CS:GO ...

The only advantage of having a knife out is the movement speed. The knife and the bomb have the highest speed values (250 units per second), so you run faster with one of these in your hands. Compared to an AWP (200 u/s) running around while holding the knife is 25% faster. Constantly switching weapons bears no real advantage. Most people probably do it for ...

Although the submitted answer by dly is quite on point... The problem with the "noob weapons" comes from older CS games where the (Terrorists in particular) auto-sniper was very frowned upon as it was very easy to hit shots with, had incredible damage output and was generally less-skill per kill. Also the no-scope accuracy while jumping ruining crouching ...

Adding to the other answers, I want to provide a more general view of the problem, which I find is very well described by David Sirlin in his book "Playing to Win". I'll try to find a balance between a link-only answer and just copy-pasting his stuff. What is so bad about "noob guns"? So let's say a "noob gun" is a weapon mainly ...

Steam would tend to revert back the hidden score points determining a rank, when a hacker is caught. This is so, because many people used to pay a hacker, or play with a friend with hack, to rank themselves up. There has been instances of 4 legit (no hacks) people playing together with a hacker (and paying them) to rank up. So, for quite some time now, If ...

A B rush needs to be well timed and executed. Also you need some smokes and flashes. If you don't have them you're doomed anyway. This strategy is just as effective as the players doing it are skilled. Stupid players will do it in a stupid way and likely fail. Good players are able to do it properly. A successful B rush requires some aim and quick thinking. ...

This answer is only based on my finds on google. I have never played the game. Any info can be long outdated without my knowledge.

But you also want to be quick with shooting once you see an enemy, that is one reason ...

Some people claim it offers a better field of view or gives you an advantage. But mostly it's just down to personal preference. In some cases, players may prefer playing in 4:3 because that's how they played earlier iterations of the Counter-Strike series (such as 1.6). FOV is not bigger, though. As noted by Decency in their comment, 16:9 offers you a wider ...

The idea behind playing for picks is to play safe and stay alive whilst attempting to inflict some damage on the opposing team. Inflicting damage on the opposing team, would be killing a player or 2, which means they would need to buy in the next round, thus affecting their team economy. If the opposing team's overall economy is low, it means they may only ...

All the weapons in CS:GO have a static spray pattern. If you hold down the button and empty a clip the bullets will always come out in the same patterns. How this differs from other games is that it is -not- going to move your whole screen so all you have to do is keep the cross-hair on your target. This is why many people refer to CS:GO as a skill based FPS,...
