View Full Version : M9 is way to accurate!!

I'm sick of getting sniped by bots w/ the M9. it seems like they can't miss at long ranges. The M9 is unrealisticly accurate for a handgun. Personally I know 3 handguns(.22, 9mm, and a .45) and its nearly impossible to hit a head size target at more then 25 yards. Maybe I'm just a bad shot, but I think the M9 should be made less accurate. I'm usually able to take a bot out with a head shot at ranges of more that 100 yards. that's just not right!

This is a beta /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The team is working out realistic ballistics. We've hired an expert for this. /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

do you know if your going to use a projectiles based system as serpentine did, or a accuracy multiplyer with a range damage system as used in RB6?

Serp's seemed somewhat exagerated, and i didn't like being able to see my rounds, but it "felt" like it was going in the right direction.

RB6's on the other hand is much simpler, and might be less of a strain on cpu as well. But it wouldn't be very realistic in terms of sniping..

It's already a projectile based system, IIRC. The projectiles are just so fast, you can't see them or notice the need to lead the shot on the small maps (because it's realistic).

yeah- we had to slow down the projectiles because we fed in the math for accurate, realistic ballistics and it was still like instant hit. To slow them down much more would be pretty unrealistic- which IMO was like with Serp. though they did start it all.

Say, speaking of the M9, will it be made a tad more powerful? It seems to take like 8 headshots before a bot dies /infopop/emoticons\icon_redface.gif

8?? You need 8 HEATshots??
Wow, am I lucky my bots are not that good - usually its five to eight shots in the belly, or one/two in their face and they fall down screaming..
Maybe you should try to improve your marksmanship? Or don't you play Hardcore mode? Just tell us your settings, and perhaps we'll make you an M9-Serial-Headshooter..

That will be changed too. With the Loadout menu all weapons will have real damage.
We had to make it low power because all weapons could be picked up. You shouldn't be able to find the best guns everywhere. The less fatal ones can lie here and there.

Vulpine, it's definitely not impossible to hit someone in the head from 25 yards, or even 50 yards out. This is an article on my father from about 6 years ago:
