Why animation of using molotov/pipe bombs looks so choppy?
The game runs great overall, but when you throw molotov coctail or pipe bomb it looks like it's freezing in it's flight for a moment. At first i thought it was just my installation/settings/driver issue, but i searched on youtube and looks like it's just how they made it to be.

Well, look at CS:GO, same engine and very smooth animation for molotov, without choking or stuttering.
