My clanmate and I were having a discussion on whether or not this kill was skill, or luck.
If you pause the video, you can see that it's the first shot that kills the enemy.

So, luck, or skill?

And you might notice how long it takes for the kill to register...

He definitely aimed in the right spot. Twitch reflexes are normally attributed to learned muscle motions over time. Just like any athlete learn a motion quickly to the point where they can execute it without consciously thinking about it.

Just because he didint consciously sit and aim doesn't mean it isn't a skillful shot. I'd say its skill unless hes abysmally inaccurate most of the time.

Quick reaction and you scoped to the correct spot. I think it's those moments where you just react without any time to plan or think about it that lead you to find out just how good your aim really is (or isn't).

Yea, that's what I was thinking.
When I was editing this video, I noticed that after a round(when the scoreboard shows up), I always move my mouse over to the exact spot over where the "Confirm" button is, subconsciously.
I think that's what's happening here.

Yea, ironically enough, I was banned from a server the match before this one for using my pistol like this. :lol:

1 shot = 1 hs kill = luck
5 shot = 1 hs kill = skill
10 shot = death = inexperienced player or bad day

lol

Depends, if I made that kill I'd say luck but depending on how good you are that could change.
