That was actually pretty insightful, I never used the deagles until I read that guide.


I still suck with them. :D

Your guide is assuming your playing normal mode. I play realistic and i got a tip: "AIM FOR THE HEAD" (1 shot kill in the head)
I got a better tip, dont use DE. they got a eat rate at about 75%.

*Off-topic* Can someone please explain what "eat", "eat rate" and "eater" mean because I've seen a lot of people use these but I'm not sure what it means.. Thanks  :)

*On-topic* Question: which path is generally the best for deagles? (high, low, mid, main?)

Eat, being hit by a bullet which does no damage is eating.

Apparently it works for every path.
But if you're like STM how you like aerial battles then obviously you'd go high path. 
If the low path is like a flat horizontal tunnel, then... not too sure.. autos OR barrets with longer range may fill you with lead before you get fire your guns right if the ceiling is low.
But that's just my preference xD

Good guide, I'm realy good with the socom, but it doesn't have the punch to be a primary.  So i'm gonna have to practice with the D Eagles.

Yeah I love overshooting too.. I'm just used to it
So it's better to aim and shoot slow then practise getting faster...
Or to shoot fast and practise getting your aim right?

Shot slow and aim first, if you get amazing aim slow you'll be able to speed it up in no time.

Well-done guide thar, Rai. I'm not much of a DEagler myself, but I can say your suggestions helped me suck slightly less with 'em. Meh, I still prefer my 82, thank you.
To sum up my point: We had a multipage debate about toilet padding. (Putting TP in the water so you don't get splashed.)
And we still don't know if dead guys can keep a stiffy.

imo you shouldn't complain about such thing because if you're practising with a gun you are allowed to use other guns if you feel for it.
