I do actually agree. 30 rounders shouldn't come until you start leveling up a bit. Currently 10 rounders have literally no purpose.

I think it'd be cool if the USGI 20-rounders were the low-level 5.56 mag.

Will this sub finally go mask off and admit it's not about anti-consumption anymore? Rightoids ruin everything.

He was getting harassed by a dumbfuck mafioso and his producer buddy to act in their awful film. What do you expect?

Har har. Yes, pain meds shouldn't be as effective as they are now. I wouldn't even mind it too much if they weren't in the game due to surgery kits being a thing, or making it so blacked limbs have a bigger penalty while in that state (eg. drastically reduced move speed unless sprinting).

Personally for me I've found that I get too panicky and try to engage before I've really got my aim steady. Don't shoot for half a second longer, it should help you immensely.

Yep. Frankly I don't know what people were expecting hearing about a hardcore and realistic game and then getting mad when BSG keeps fleshing that out.

But this isn reality.

It's meant to simulate it further than other FPSes.

Helmets would indeed be basically useless. Dick helmet would be just as aeffective as an altyn against rifle ammo aka worthless.

You could drop prices, change durability of stuff, and an Altyn will still protect against more than a helmet from the Vietnam era.

A lot things have much more impact in order to create some kind of gear progression.

At best, most of those impacts should be 'standardised' into tiers that balance stuff like foregrips around +ergo or +recoil. I honestly wouldn't mind a lot of stuff just being for cosmetic variety, or upped durability when they bring in full gun durability, etcetera.

Obviously we cant have that in game as modding would become pointless.

  1. no it isn't, otherwise you would see the military using full-auto a LOT more on their M4s outside of ammo wastage concerns.

  2. yes, you could. There can still be stuff that impacts what you would use. Muzzle brakes can have recoil improvements, grips can have ergonomic improvements, different barrels can have better durability and muzzle velocity, etcetera.

There's nothing compelling about having hitboxes for plate carriers versus just doing what they already do with thorax vs stomach. It doesn't add anything to the game, other than RNG with where you get shot from a shotgun pellet for example.

It makes calibres with less penetration more usable as people can't tank 15 shots to their entire thorax with a small plate carrier anymore, and it also makes the bigger, heavier armours eg. IOTV full protection kits more appealing as you can load more of that space up with some ceramic plates and be better protected against side and back shots.

Armor is SUPPOSED to do something in the game

It still would. You could still very easily protect your vitals for more than a few shots (armour is meant to take multiple rifle shots).

Trying to nullify that and add RNG elements that make armor less effective is not compelling gameplay. And more importantly its not fun. At the end of the day its a game, and it still needs to be fun.

How the fuck is it RNG? Because bullet spread exists and you might get hit in a weak spot 1/50 times? You can literally counteract it with more plates at the tradeoff of speed. It adds more depth to loadout customisation.

And ultimately, saying it's 'not fun' is a pointless argument. It might not be fun to you, but surprise, to a lot of other people it is! I can't wait for it, personally, and I'm going to enjoy finding the right setup that works best for me. A lot of other people who bought into it for the realistic elements will feel the same way, and it's BSG themselves who started developing it, they clearly find it fun and want it in the game.

I mean, what do you want me to say? Also going 'the game is striving for realism but currently isn't because a lot of its systems are unfinished, so we should keep going with unrealistic stuff because I personally don't find it fun' is a dumb argument.

You okay there?

COMMENT 1d ago

Oh, right. That's why med animations, face hitboxes and other such things were added. Because those aren't realistic, right?

Yes, there are silly handload rounds in the game that should honestly be removed or made much worse than they currently are. That's about it.

COMMENT 1d ago

He was surprised and it would be a natural response to just sort of... drop. That's not the same as being prepared for combat and getting shot in a plate carrier. We have videos also demonstrating that you're not going to fall over from getting hit from .308.

COMMENT 1d ago

No it wouldn't. You can still ricochet bullets, you can mount things to them and they protect from shrapnel, birdshot (and maybe buckshot? not sure) and pistol rounds. They could be made a bit cheaper to compensate, but helmets aren't useless in reality, otherwise we wouldn't have numerous militaries wearing them.

The flesh damage is probably exaggerated because the fragmentation system is broken on low-pen rounds.

COMMENT 1d ago

What they could do is add additional hitboxes that only affect a multiplier of how much damage is done to the body part. eg. it's 3x where your heart would be but 0.5x in the shoulders and 1x in the upper chest.
