Now what exactly is the point in linking definitions
One thing that has always made me curious, is when people fire a few rounds (sometimes a full clip) into the air at the beginning of a match? Is it because they think it'll unlock some glitch? Is it because they legit want the other team to know where they are? Is it because they're just annoying? Please, does anybody have an answer to this?
Multiple reasons but many do it to test the rapid fire, some to allow detection of position.
I fire shots in the air when nothing is happening (mid game) I call it the "the two shot technique" which is meant to bring attention to the player.
I saw a vid on Youtube about it, it pointed out that you can in a way test your connection to the host by firing a few shots and comparing that to how fast the bullet counter is refreshed. Obviously it's not something accurate, but i tested it and noticed that in real laggy matches there could be up to a one second delay with the bullet count dropping when shooting single shots in a slow pace. So basically you could get a rough estimate on how bad your connection will be by shooting a few rounds at the beginning.
