What do you mean by cloud of smoke? Be a little bit more specific.

when a bullet hits the wall the little chunks that fall out of it, i used to be able to see those but not anymore

Look through the options a bit. It's probably in there under particle effects.

not sure if its a console command or if its in the files cause its not in options man
perhaps youre graphic settings are too low?

Under Advanced Options, look for Multiplayer Decal Limit. Pretty sure that controls how many bullet impacts that you can see on screen so if it's set to 0 that'd probably be why.
