    There only one thing i do not like about Infiltration. That is no crosshairs without zoom. In real life you know exactly where your shooting without scope. thats why they train the army. Just had to say somthing. don't take it the wrong way :) :redeemer:

    Press your secondary fire/aim button.

    And lo, he was shown the light that is...infiltration.

    I think he's trying to say that IRL the army trains you to aim only with a scope. Or something like that at least....

    But we all know that in real life, you have this crosshair floating in front of your face that shows you where your bullets are going.

    A scope without those pesky obtrusive crosshairs would RULE!!! :D

    Anyway...

    Uh... no, most of the time it's pretty damn hard in game or in real life to tell where the hell your bullet will hit without at least looking down the barrel... that's part of the reason why most of the older FPSs (Doom, Wolfenstein, Rise of the Triad Quake 1) that don't normally use crosshairs (ps if you actually need the crosshairs in Quake 1 you really, really suck :p) have the gun going down the middle of your view...

    EDIT: Come to think of it, why don't most scopes have only a single notched line going down from the middle of the view and get rid of the mostly superfluous lines on the top and sides?

    Yet another apparent example of an individual who tried Infiltration without reading the manual. Personally, I find anyone who doesn't look at the 'control' area with the key bindings a little odd...which this individual must have done, otherwise he would have noticed that Alt-Right Mouse does SOMETHING. That, or he's a troll.....either way, he'll learn or he will leave, either way, the community is saved!

    What i mean is that the army trains men not to always use scopes. they are trained to shoot & hit without scopes. I mean you should be able to have crosshairs without looking threw scope. Even counterstrike (the most popular game) has crosshairs but they don't shoot straight to where the crosshair is.

    Actually in real life's technology today there are little computer helmets they have that go straight in front of your right eye and they have a little dot right where he is aiming. this is in 2001's techonlogy :D

    1) Learn the difference between IRON SIGHTS (the funny-looking little things you see above the barrels on many guns) and SCOPES (a big funny-looking thing above the barrel shaped like a long funnel or hourglass, sometimes just a cylinder)

    2) Speak not of CS.

    3) The shiny nifty computer gadgets have not been sufficiently tested in the field for either the INF team to model correctly or to be used widely by the military.

    4) If you're still stuck try playing StrikeForce or Night's Edge... they both have aiming systems in some ways similar to INF's, but also retain the older FPS-like elements so you can more easily understand by analogy how INF's aiming system would work without having to deal with zillions of other new things at once...

    If you mean you should be able to have a scope on your rifle and use aimmode without actualy looking through the scope, but e.g. over it, then - and only then - I agree.

    My issues with you are as follows:
    • Which army teaches their soldiers to fire without aiming?
    • Why would that create a crosshairs for their soldiers. Is there some kind of hypnosis or ocular surgery that creates it for them?
    • Have you even tried aiming with INF. You'll notice that pressing the alternate fire/aim/mouse 2 button will align the weapon with your cheek so that you are looking though the "iron" sights of the weapon. This is the way that real soldiers aim their weapon, and is something that CS has never attempted to show.
    • Are you aware that you have misspelled psycho, pshyco?

    I believe that with the right amount of medical treatment, we can save your son ma'am. However, the long term CS-use has rendered him into a near vegetative state. Assuming we can control the drooling, you may have to accept the fact that the best he can hope for in life is to be President.
