Two Finnish guys may have discovered the cause of the well known “hitbox bug” in CS 1.5. In four small videoclips, alfa and mjp proves that having Metamod enabled on the server totally messes up the hitboxes. For instance, you will get headshot if you aim for the stomach, and miss if you aim for the head. That goes for both standing and crouching opponents.

Check out the videos for yourself at their site: Metamod and CS hitboxes

Metamod is required to run WWCL and HLGuard, and is therefore installed on almost all CS servers worldwide. Let’s hope there soon will be an update for this, so CS once again will be a little more acceptable playing.
