Alright folks, today we bring you the lucky number 13. For this 13th edition of Q&A we asked a select group of players in the community about their thoughts the playermodels they use. What were their answers? Find out below!
<jawer> I was using Iron Snouts for a very long time now and never thought about changing something about that. They used to be green in single games and blue for teammates + red for enemies like the default settings with the exception of full added brightness and forced playermodels for everyone, so i see only snouts. I changed to light yellow upper and red legs some months ago and i like it that way. I also fixed teamskins so i have no more differences in teammodes and duels. To the question why i use the Iron Snout, I’d say that it’s just a habit i don’t want to give up on. I think the inky model is irritating your aim with all the details, e.g. you’re not able to kill someone when you hit their wings as far as i know so i wouldn’t encourage anybody to pick that but everybody should know best for her/himself.
<neon> Well, i am using ironsnout in a glowing red (teammates ironsnout /glowing blue), because i can see enemies fast on every map (no map has glowing red textures) and idk i always used the ironsnout, i am used to play with it. I used to play some time with the ogro playermodel aswell, but lets be honest ogro is just to small to aim good on it. I would never use a color which isnt glowing or has neoncolours, its just way better for fast realizing the enemie and yeah, did i missed something?
<Markku> I prefer the Neon Yellow ironsnout, since (in my opinion) it’s the easiest playermodel to see in almost every map and I feel like it has the better hitbox. I’d discourage the green coloured one ’cause it gets too easily confused with map’s textures.
<Viper> Right now I’m using Ironsnout, the default one (overbright option on). Before I used the custom skin from ogros.org, default colours: red for enemy, blue for bruhs. I haven’t used any other colours, so can’t really give advice on that, but I do absolutely recommend to use the option “always use team skins”: a lot easier to see your enemies in non-team-modes.
<Redon> snout is love, snout is life
Well it appears that the ironsnout is the unanimous choice. There are so many custom skins for the snout, perhaps there should be custom skins for other models. Drop a comment about your playermodel stories below!
