The 3 cat spam is officially removed. Doing this spam will be no longer possible.

Three Category Spamming or as known for short Three Cat Spam or Quick Switching is where a player quickly fire their one-shot weapons and then quickly switches to 2 other one-shot weapons. The weapons used are usually wallbreak weapons, and the three categories are sniper, special, and backup. This practice is also paired with spamming one-shot heavy weapons such as the Christmas Ultimatum, using high mobile melees s, and primaries such as the Black Mamba as a backup. The player also may Rocket Jump while doing this. This practice is often considered "no skill" as it can easily kill players that are playing normally with their primary weapons.
