Ive been playing BF3 for most of the day today (starting from last night...been a long shift) even though I have a love hate relationship with it.
but one thing that pisses me off to no end is hit detection. I can snipe with a M40A5 at a guy at one of the windows from RU spawn in metro and i get a hit marker and bloodsplatters but it doesnt kill him, he turns around and sprays me with an LMG, SMG or G18C (full auto glock) and I die instantly - this is in hardcore mode mind you and the shot hit his chest.
second thing is - guys who wade into a group of 5 enemies that are scattered around a small spot and he rapes every single one of them with a PkP pecheneg before a random guy from across where the group was holding out kill him with a sniper rifle or assault rifle. BUT BUT BUT, when i use the same gun and wade into the same group of enemies i get torn to shit each and every time i try.
Why is it that in the hands of the enemies their guns seem to do 800% more damage compared to me when i used the same guns???
Its not the first or the second time ive tried something like that.
Then comes the problem i have with shotguns. aparantly eveything is more powerful the a shotgun at close range. I get off 2 shots pointblank into an enemies torso and he just kills me with one shot from his SMG or rifle. and the same problem happends when im using flechette rounds.
Hit detection is so full of fucking shit in this game. In the beta - bullets used to fly around corners. this problem still exists. and im getting sick of it.
I know I know...some of you guys will probably say "suck less" and fair play to you. I might not be a pro league FPs player, but at the same time im not some mindless lemming thats totally void of tactics and teamwork. Im no newcomer to fps games and ive spent a lot of time since i was young teen playing these games and now im 26 (or 27 - I forget)
anyway...part of the problem could be because hit detection is done CLIENTSIDE instead of serverside like the previous game.
It just annoys me to no end when I feel like my gun is made by fisherprice.
