Sound info in Cs 1.6 ~ Sound Tips in Cs,Cz

The proper and intelligent use of sounds in-game proves to be a powerful weapons for any player.Here are some of the general info and suggestions for taking the mximum benefit out of the sounds :

1. The scoping of an awp, switching of weapons, breaking of ducts and windows, reloading, putting a silencer in colt/usp and footsteps are the common sounds that are used to predict the position of the opponents.

2. Chucking a hand grenade over some particular walls yeilds an "uff" sound if anyone's camping there. For eg. the nade over the walls of whitehalls in de_train, the nade over the walls of the tunnel in bombsite B in de_dust2 and the nade over the roof and walls in the hallway in de_inferno.

3. The chucking of a smoke grenade makes a similar sound to that of a flash grenade. The breaking of lights at the ramp in de_nuke make a sound identical to breaking the ducts.These anomalies could be put to maximum use in clutch situations for outwtting your opponents.

4. Walking by the edge of steel textures (like the ramp in de_nuke, top of trains in de_train) doesn't make the typical sound of walking on steel.

5. Turning on the flashlight as soon as pressing the "use" button doesnt make the sound of defusing, instead it just makes the sound of turning on the flashlight. Similar effects can be obtained by firing any loud gun like an awp or cv47. Also continuously pressing the use button at the start of defusing doesnt make the typical defusing sound. This technique is known as the Silent Defuse Technique.

6. There are some map specific sounds that also give away the position once they are crossed over.
