Find your preferred damage-batching interval

Damage batching is when your HUD displays multiple damage numbers as being added together. This is enabled with "hud_combattext_batching 1".

hud_combattext_batching_window lets you tweak the maximum interval at which multiple hits are added together.

I personally use 0.62 as it can otherwise be unclear if scattergun/shotgun shots batch together, due to the polarizing damage of spread weapons. Being below the threshold of 0.625 ensures the consistency of scattergun/shotgun shots never batching.

Keep note that sometimes you'll chain damage batches on weapons with a slower rate-of-fire than your batching interval. This may incidentally occur through weapon switching, fire/bleed, or projectile travel time (think sync-rockets)

Here's a fire speed list so you can decide what weapons to account for:
0.1 minigun/smg/syringe gun
0.12 tomislav
0.1445 pretty boy's pocket pistol
0.15 pistol
0.17 winger
0.28 air strike RJ
0.3 hothand (between the two hits)
0.315 force-a-nature/soda popper
0.36 shortstop
0.48 eviction notice
0.5 weapon switch, scout melee/revolver/short circuit secondary fire
0.531 family business
0.6 grenade launcher/stickybomb launcher
0.625 scattergun/shotgun
0.68 jag
0.696 ambassador/enforcer
0.8 rocket/pomson/melee (except scout)
0.88 solemn vow
0.96 market gardener/ullapool caber/killing gloves/ubersaw
1.5 sniper
1.6 crossbow
1.94 huntsman
[maximum batching window] 2.0 flaregun

What value do you guys use?

Good point, that didn't even occur to me.

Either valve neglected to list that downside, or the "attack interval" value on the wiki is inaccurate.
