    How bout lobbing grenades or whatnot across the map in a multiplayer game hoping that you'll get the first kill and be able to brag to all your friends that you randomly threw a grenade and killed someone

    That was standard strategy in Shipment (COD4).

    Hows reloading after every shot/kill a bad Habit, Its saved me more times then I can count when I know if I wouldn't of reloaded I would of ran out of ammo in the clip might firefight and lost. I mean yeah if your gona grab a gun with a huge clip/ reload time then of course its dumb but if your playing CoD get the game speed reloading.

    Clip every firefight not might, you're, you're ugh wish I could edit

    I just start running around corners firing my guns because I thought someone was there. Turns out it was my Turtle Beaches playing tricks on me...

    "Trying to shoot allies even when the game doesn't let you" This so many times over. "Not realizing that enemies will respawn infinitely" Yup, I expect to hunker down and kill X enemies before moving on. This messed me up in Black Ops a couple times.

    I used to regularly collect but never use powerful weapons such as rocket launchers. In Fallout 3 I wouldn't stray from my Terrible Shotgun, Xuanlong Rifle, Nighthawk, Backwater Rifle combination (replace them with weaker weapons the earlier in the game you are) so never used any of the projectiles, and only ever used normal grenades, never the Nuka variety. Playing Borderlands 2 now, and I'm making an effort to use the correct weapon for the situation so I will at least equip a rocker launcher before heading into a number of Goliaths, but alas, it will be a last resort only after my shotgun, assault rifle and SMG have run out of bullets, or if I'm in need of an urgent Second Wind.

    Playing an Anarchist Mechromancer will break you of the first habit, that I am so guilty of, pretty quickly.

    I'm sad to say that I've done ALL of these. Except the kill streak over ealousness, for I don't play COD or online shooters in general.

    Here's another: Always, ALWAYS aiming down sights. (This only counts in games that allow you to aim down sights) When taking down a target at a reasonable distance, using the gun's sights is infinetely more efficient and accurate than simply spraying from the hip until he stops moving. But why, brain, must you remind me to "aim down sights for accuracy" when I'm holding a shotgun, and my target is literally within arm's reach of me?

    Lol this is definitely true

    I developed a habit of panick knifing in shooters.... For some reason instead of just hip firing an enemy thats close ill rush towards them trying to knife... Even own teamates I'll occasionally panick knife

    Reloading after every shot. I hate myself when I do this. Especially with some sort of LMG or power weapon that I know takes forever to reload, but in the middle of a fire fight, I kill one or 2 dudes and hit reload every time, even if the box magazine still has another 80 rounds in it.

    ^ this worst is when you get killed when doing the gratiuitous-reload-R-pressing and you know you shouldn't have

    Great read! I relate to most of these except the tutorial thing (I don't mind learning a game properly before playing), cocky before killstreak (because I don't play games that actually reward killstreaks other than extra XP) and the mirror thing (I honestly don't do that, don't know why).
