Are the bullets in SC 2.5 still hit-scan? Cause in the video it looked like it wasn`t.

BTW MADWHACK is awesome(sp) :D

Hitscan means that there is no visible projectile and the target takes damage as soon as you fire.

They're still hit-scan... Half-Life just has a clever tracer effect... the tracers actually do move from the gun to their target, though the shot itself lands instantly. It's actually always been that way, but it's hard to notice.

By the way, try starting a single-player game (not of SvenCo-op, it has to be real single-player), and type:
host_framerate 0.01
(depending on the speed of your computer, you may need to use a higher or lower value... e.g. 0.05 or 0.001).
