The hitboxes are the actual boxes that represent certain parts of the body, ie head, arms, legs, torso, etc. The head hitbox used to be very small, and it was extremely difficult (if not nearly inmpossible) to get a headshot. I would maybe see one or two headshots every other couple of rounds. These days, I get banned all of the time because people think I'm cheating because I'm getting headshots about 80% of the time. It's because I aim for the head, I'm used to the old hitbox where it was nearly impossible to get a headshot, so you had to aim a lot more accurately.
Also, the recoil of the guns used to be impossible to handle. With the AK, you would actually have to aim at their knees, start shooting, and the recoil would bring you up to their torso for a kill. The Colt used to have a scope, and you used to have crosshairs even when zoomed in with AWP or Scout. The P90 used to be one of the best guns, along with the Mac10 in Close Quarter Combat. Now those two guns absolutely suck. Also, the automatic shot gun paired with a deagle used to piss a lot of people off as well. It was spray and pray, with some lethal backup.
I know what you mean about shooting through the walls. There are some great spots on Assault, Italy, etc. where these can be exploited. I could show you a lot of tricks and exploits on maps, like Militia.
There is a guy out there that agrees with me (and a lot of other people) about the beta versions being far superior, and he has even set up his own server only rotating a beta version of the game for people who are interested in playing it how it used to be.
Counter-Strike used to be one of the best first person shooters, if not the best, a long time ago, and it is a shame that so many changes have been made to bring it to where it is today. Just ask anybody in the myg0t clan.
