Well, minigun is actually quite an amazing weapon if you can use it, but in a general game with two rather skilled players, chances are the minigun is at a big disadvantage.

Back to topic about DEs,

Desert Eagles are one of the best weapons in the game, it is just the bullet speed that is a bit tricky to master and once you get the aim and arcing right, it is extremely powerful. It is better in a more open area or if you're not obstructed by the ceiling.

I used to like Deagles, but then they started sucking.

Not really. Sure, in 1.2.1 it was 1337, but so was almost everything else. Then 1.3, every weapon including DEs themselves were nerfed.

Now the DEs are getting more and more buffs, no nerfs in ANY area ever since the next version after 1.3. In 1.5, it would most probably gonna get +2 damage and -4 reload buffs.

Not everything is getting buffed... Ruger, Aug and maybe Knife are most probably getting nerfed (whether major or minor). The rest are probably getting buffs or remain the same.

Knife? What is there to nerf?

Back on topic, how do you deal with barret campers with deagles? They are quite fun to try but I always end up dying, or dodging their bullet.  Then they run away back into base where there's 4 other people who just spawned. Hmmmmm...
Knife seems to work quite well if you're quick

I'm not really a pub player, but in gathers/fcws the alt route has Barretters in it. Many people (Rugertards) disagree with my way of defeating them but it works. I rush them, NEVER get in a range battle with a Barrett you will get molested. Best thing to do is charge them and don't stop moving, and of course rape the arc like you just dropped the soap.

The Arc is what make the Deagles unique (its the extreme bullet curve) it allows for amazingly angled shots.

all the talk about  compliments to rai-dei, then suddenly a freakin minigun conersation?

-off- minigun can be a true killer, i was able to do serial kill and multikill x2 in 5 seconds

-on- great guide, great weapon, now i gotta try to use it. btw, it really is a heck of a killer in real mod. 2 shot on torso=death  1 shot to head= death.

So in other words, use the bullet arc to keep your target, while constantly moving out of their line of fire?  That makes sense, since in a ruger vs ruger battle, you'd have to be aiming directly down your opponent's line.  Now I can see how the deagles here give you a decided advantage.

I need to apply this to my m79 usage, thanks!

Yeah recently there were 2 barret snipers in the low route - I really wanted to try and beat them;
I charged 1, and since it was a narrow tunnel I figured they could hardly miss (as I figured out several lives before).
I wormed in mid air, he missed and I managed to get a shot into him and again while flying over his head and yet again when on the other side of him.

But alas, the other one killed me.

So: should I have kept up my charge and somehow pinned his face with my knife? Or continue my charge and keep firing?
Cause one barreter is quite okay, but more than that.. gets hard.  I know a sensible solution would be to take the high route, but... I don't like to let them win ;D

Since I don't really know where they were, I'd try to take out the one who didn't miss because he has a shot left.  As for the other just kill him after you kill the one since he is already weak.

I havent tried this, but maybe it is posible to it one barreter , then aim for the other one and hit, then go back to the other one... etc... so that they get binked, unable to shoot. But of course this would require perfect timing. OR, you could just nadespam lawl

Nadespam one and kill the other xD
Bink doesn't work extremely well in narrow tunnels but it's still worth a try

For some reason, I practise using deagles like every day yet I never get better. But one day I can just pick up an AK or something and own... Aiming is just really hard with eagles for me, but AK (and most other automatics), you just... spray... and kill people. I'm also OK with 1-hits and the other semi's - just I suck at deags.. any suggestions why? o.o

pewpew you are like me, i don't feel like getting better at times, and i'm using ak. The ak has much easyer aim than the deagles so all you have to do is following this guide and play. Remember not spray and pray with the Deagles, shot slow.

They key is to shoot SLOW, as if they were actually the Ruger. Start slow. If you can get better at aiming a little by little, then good for you, that means you're getting the bullet speed. Also, DEs are not longed-ranged weapons, try getting mid-range with them instead.

Ya, it's pretty understandable why DEs are so hard to use, its just the bullet speed which ultimately makes the bullet curve awkwardly. Also, at long range, the bullets would begin to spread out.
