It's the thing where you walk over a new weapon and it automatically
switches to it if it's more powerful. I looked for some kind of toggle in
the cfg file, but didn't see anything. Please tell me there's a way to
disable this!

can't remember what the actual command is but in cs.source there's a tick
box in the config page - surely dm2 has similar.

If it does, I can't find it.

Only thing I see is under Options>Keyboard (tab)>Advanced, and it's "fast
weapons switch." I don't think this is the same thing, as this is
disabled...I believe "fast weapons switch" is when you press a number button
and the weapon you selected automaticaly comes up.

you are correct about fast switch but the option i referred to is on the
multiplayer game page, advanced button [cs.s].
after checking my config.cfg the most likely candidate is - cl_autowepswitch
"0" to prevent switching to the newly acquired weapon.
