Shooting sound

  • This is the first weapon introduced with reflecting projectiles, though it was first introduced in Half-Life by Tau Cannon. (Note that Counter-Strike Online uses Half-Life's engine GoldSrc)
  • The Needler has the lowest fire rate of all submachine guns so far.
  • Oddly, the Taiwan/Hong Kong and Singapore/Malaysia regions use the Crossbow's firing sound instead.
