Re: Shorty: Should a headshot be a 1 hit down?

You can get headshots with the shorty

However it does not apply the same x1.4 or x1.5 damage multiplier that all other weapons have

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.


Yes.  Common sense dictates that sidearms should outperform long guns.  Sorry I didn't realise that before.  Also, saying that it's ok for every weapon to be a OHKO on headshot, because you can still miss, is probably the most retarded thing I've ever heard.

I think so, for costing 1 loadout point. If this is too strong, then make it 2 loadouts points.

 

Thoughts?


 

 

Thank god you are not a game developer! This is hands down probably one of the worst suggestions I've ever seen for this game. Do you honestly not see any problems that may arise if ND were to do this? At this point I'm not sure if your trolling or just mentally challenged...

Wow, does it hurt being that stupid? How do you even use a computer, being that dumb? Not once did I say that "sidearms should outperform long guns", so jam that back up your rectal region where you got it from. Also, this "saying that it's ok for every weapon to be a OHKO on headshot, because you can still miss"... a headshot from ANY weapon from 10 feet would take you down. You moron. *smh* Go slap your parents for raising an ignoramous, and stop creating alt accounts to kudo yourself.

lol do you want the game to purposely be broken?

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog. As a longtime fan of the studio, it’s an absolute dream come true to work alongside the developers here and immerse myself in our amazing player community. It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe

Haha, you're hilarious buddy.  I'm just gonna stop even bothering to reply, since you're clearly too d*mn dumb to understand...well, anything really.  I'm not sure why you pretend you do.

 

Disregarding this dumbsh*t and getting back to the actual topic, I'll say that no, no it shouldn't.  It already does massive damage within its effective range, and its large cone-shaped area of effect means it's extremely easy to hit anybody within that range.  It's also capable of hitting multiple targets for full damage with one blast.  It doesn't really need to be any stronger than it already is.

Thanks, I was having trouble sleeping. Your stupidity and apparent lack of actual knowledge, of any sort, have officially bored me. Please seek medical attention, maybe they'll invent the brain transplant just for you, then you'll be able to form coherent thought. Enough with your insensate prattle. Begone, lackey.

when the entire post is directed at insulting the other, you know they ran out of argument, hilarious.
