Hey guys. I was doing some testing. We all know wallstrafing, looking at a certain angle into the wall and gaining a speedboost from it for some reason. I decided to test and find the optimal angle for it. I’ve no idea why, but this angle is 53 degrees. Face into the wall, 53 degrees (You can test this by using cl_showpos 1), and you’ll find that you run exactly 50% faster. 320 running speed becomes 480. Very useful ^_^.
This applies to ep1, ep2 and hls. Most probably hl2 also, along with any mods for these games.
