explosion shake

Hoping for some advice. As a sniper i rely on nice steady accurate shots. This can get a little difficult to do when a load of grenades are going off underneath the sniper area. Makes the screen shake something hideous. Is there a cfg setting to minimise this or get rid of completely?

Seems a little unfair that if a war is going on underneath the sniper deck, it makes sniping that much harder. Anyone know?

i think hes right if the rockets/nades are going off right on the ceiling as they will sometimes it can shake your screen being on the other side of the floor imo but i dont play sniper so dont really notice it

does the detpack make the whole map shake or a radius area?

cuz you can move as far as you can away from where the detpacks are going off, i think, on maps like ff_well by getting on the roof.

or something.

That happens in the small curvy sniper hideouts as well? Surely those grenades down below shouldn't bother you if you get on the very top roof.

I think this is actually a bug. I got one of those 45 second shakes while guarding flag on well (enemy water was detted). Only happened to me once as of yet.

I was gonna make a new thread and found this one.

I wanted to know if you could turn off the shaking screen from explosions too. As a demoman the pipes make it happen and it's disorienting...I know it's for excitement and realism, but it throws me off

Pipes do it? That's... that shouldn't be happening.

not as big as the detpack shake, but there is a very tiny shake when you have rockets going off right near you.

I'm not sure what that did but it didn't change, thanks though

I think I noticed it in a large game, and with more explosions it has a greater effect. When I just noticed it by myself it was very small.

it can't happen while jumping, so if it gets bad I could do that until it settles down while piping

honestly what would you expect in a WAR? There should be rumbling and explosions below you if there is rumbling and explosions going on below you...

The same thing IMO...from what I understand he is asking how he can stop the shaking from explosions so he can snipe easier...but I would think that would / should be part of the game, no?

Aside from the detpack (which adds to its epicness) I don't think any explosions should shake the screen.

But usually if you hear a slash followed by a grunt, or the sound of the Heavies AC winding up, you'd get shivers, but it's not a shake, off topic.
