lol that's such an unbalance if every gun downed in 1 HS
Sorry, I thought y'all had a little-known thing called common sense. ANY weapon should down in a single head shot depending on its effective range.Feel better now?
That still doesn't make sense. It would make the weapons power completely irrelevant. All you'd have to do is pop on the (free) 9MM and spray for the head.
Also, shorty definitely SHOULDN'T be one-hit down on a headshot. Its damage cone is massive. All pretty much all you'd have to do is have their head on your screen and you could down them in one shot. This, from a 1 point secondary weapon would be ridiculous.
Okay, so nobody else brought their common sense to the table. Here, give me your hand and I'll try to walk you through this...
The effective range of any shot-type weapon, be it a shorty or the shot gun, should not be very far from the weapon itself; as the shot spreads, the damage effect lessens. Those same real-world physics should be applied to these weapons, so that a shorty blast to the head from, say, 10 feet would be lethal, whereas the same shot from 30 feet would just p!$$ somebody off. BTW, spraying with the 9MM wouldn't be too smart, because unless you're actually aiming, you might not even hit a body, much less a head.
even if a shot to the head is considered 100% lethal in real-life, you gotta understand that this is a game and certain realism IRL won't fit in this game or any MP game for that matter. You survive lethal gunshots and whatever else can hurt you in ridiculous ways not because the game is trying to stray away from real life but because of balance. Even military shooters who try the realistic approach in a way have to stretch rules in some department because in a balance standpoint I doubt a game wouldn't be too much fun if it were just like real life in every way.
I know what you're talking about with range HS's, I played a MP where this were the case and it worked in that MP due to the variety of guns, how health worked, etc. but in this slow paced game where it isn't to difficult to land a headshot with any gun and faster RoF guns are more forgiving at landing a Headshot it will make half the guns useless.
I would literally just run up and headshot people with it constantly...and within a day you would realize why it was a bad idea when the rest of the people reverted to stealth rushes on your boxes and headshot u.
Perhaps the shorty should be a purchased weapon, then. Of course, I also think that the cost for purchased weapons is ridiculously low, but who really sees THAT changing, either...
why would a shorty be a purchaseable if you have the shotgun right there?
