The Galil is a moderately powerful assault rifle available exclusively to the Terrorists. The only major disadvantages are its inaccuracy over long ranges and high recoil. It is also unusually heavy for an assault rifle. For those reasons, the Galil is uncommon, usually being replaced with the AK-47 after several rounds. Furthermore, this weapon is one of the hardest rifles to master, the second hardest weapon is the FAMAS, the counterpart of the Galil.
The Galil is very heavy weapon. While wielded, the player's movement speed is 210 units per second (default speed is 250), meaning they suffer heavy speed reduction. The Galil is one of the few weapons that is unable to shoot underwater.
Spray at full auto when at close range while strafing to left or right. Aim for the chest as the recoil will increase and hit your enemy's head.
For medium range, stay stationary, aim for head and shoot burst of two shots which makes it more likely to land a headshot
For long range, crouch an aim for whatever you think you can hit, normally a torso shot.
Switch to a sidearm when you want to run faster due to the Galil's high movement speed penalty.
This weapon can be deadly at close range if the user is well experienced in wielding the IDF Defender. The rifle can kill enemies with a headshot at the first bullet fired but the user may need to wait until the recoil has become less severe otherwise, the inaccuracy will make the user an easy target for counter-attack. Sometimes, the best ways to compensate this is to either retreat and wait or strafe and keep firing.
To some players in the Counter-Strike community, the Galil is sometimes treated as a submachine gun only its power per bullet is stronger and considerably less accurate. This is because of the terrible inaccuracy involved with the weapon. Only use full auto when you are very close, its high rate of fire is difficult for most other weapons to match, but at the longer distances, you will most likely waste your ammo.
Ths Galil can be useful at the beginning of a match if you don't have sufficient money for the AK-47. It's almost as close to the AK-47's statistics and this weapon can still outclass opponents who using submachine guns.
Depending on the latency, the Galil may be a more suitable rifle to wield than the AK-47. If your lag is high, firing the AK-47 may be too risky as you could miss your targets. In comparison, the Galil has lower recoil and is more reliable as all of its bullets has a higher chance in hitting opponents.
Use low recoil weapons against its users as long range.
Use more powerful weapons, or ones with greater ranged abilities.
If the user is unaware or occupied, a submachine gun can be a good choice due to the high fire rate.
Remember, the user of this has a high firing rate, so try to make them waste their magazine by dodging. Also, this weapon is hard to control while firing at full-auto so keep your distance and its user will have a hard time hitting you.
Galil users will also be slowed down somewhat, so they may be easier targets.
