    CA spectator cam

    Something is wrong with spectator free cam, the one for dead players.
    Seems like it tries to keep distance from walls, but it's bugged. It's possible to look inside brushes on roofs, vertical angle is limited (can't look straight down), and the forced distance doesn't work well in tight corridors.

    Also when spectating last teammate and he dies:
    1 the camera changes from that player pov to his death cam
    2 it changes to free cam for a second
    3 changes to round countdown self-cam.

    #2 - is unnecessary and confusing.

    It always did that. (and since it's not really a big problem it's not going to be changed)

    Also when spectating last teammate and he dies:

    2 it changes to free cam for a second
    3 changes to round countdown self-cam.

    Probably not going to be changed either. There's a delay between when the player dies and when the round is considered ended so it freecams during this time.

    I noticed it after the last update, on campgrounds-intel (R). At first I thought it's a bug on the map - bad intermission camera position, but it's just how free-cam works.

    There are more weird effects sometimes, not only the freecam but also double spawn, then 1-2 seconds of round countdown are lost.
