    :respect:

    Finally fixing some of the core game issues that have been driving me nuts.
    Especially the Reload bug i have been killed so many times in a firefight by opening up on someone who appeared to be reloading only to be shot in the face and the spawn menu thing.

    Also the AA vs inf and armor fix is nice as long as it effects parachuting inf as well, 25~30mm rounds will shred anything pretty quickly at 3600 RPM.

    Never noticed the reload animation one myself...for which I am glad. Cool that it's fixed, for sure.

    As far as I know, any "front knife" is just possible by coming in at a angle, then they most likely turn as you are locking on and flying at them, and bam there's your front knife. They will scream "WTF!", but just so happens you locked from the side and they turned to make the illusion complete.

    Also if you sprint past them with your knife out and watch it raise up, then spin around and slam on swing as you are flying like tarzan through the air past them, it will appear as a front knife too since oyu had fired the lock as you were gliding past them, but turned on your way past, the lock still goes through.

    I changed the video in the post, the guy made one, then updated it with more positions, so if you watched the 1st one, then the 2nd shows them all (at least I think). I found this video that says there is a front knife (the text and blurred crap makes my eyes go crazy).



    But as you can see, every single time he knifes the guy, the guy is turned sideways then faces forward. It's impossible to lock on to a guy just straight facing you. Has to be a side lock then them turning towards you after you have locked.

    Told me what? That it was possible? Oh I knew that after having been stabbed in the face a couple times (once I was standing and shooting at the knifer running right at me; not turning at all I am fairly certain). I could just never do it myself even by dumb luck, which apparently finally happened yesterday.

    I hear what you are saying Kurgan and that sure does seem to be the case from my own attempts but it did happen to me by our "best buddy" (see above)...though maybe hacks involved idfk.

    You can side knife people from pretty far forward, I'd say almost a 35 - 45 degree angle from facing straight forward. I've done it to people as well, it just appears like a face knife to the reciever, sprint, leap, grab, knife. On their screen they are on your shoulder, on your screen (latency) they are right in front of you. simply because they are booking it, it just happens. Me and Ufgy spent a day testing it after we watcher Orhan do it to some guy at B on Grand Bazar. It's the same trick as coming from behind and spinning in the air, just all latency and locking on from the side.

    Also that reload timer that you mentioned earlier. I think almost all of them were only adjusted by 0.1 seconds. So very hard to notice, though I think a few might have recieved a bit larger changes.

    I watched it on my Wife's iPad while I was taking a dump. It was awesome - the trailer, not the dump. Well, the dump wasn't bad, either.

    I'd probably feel compelled to take a shit if I was holding an iPad as well.

    Hater. You're just fueling Phenom's youthful misguided fire.

    Use the M416, I felt it was an overall better weapon before the patch, and now I think it cemented that. Or the G3, slow RoF, but high damage per bullet = about same TTK as m16a3, but better long range.

    Theres not a chance it was 5 shots, even at the longest drop off range for the REX. The REX didn't change at all in damage and actually got a buff with a higher rate of fire and faster reload time. At max range the REX does 28 damage, thats 4 shots to kill (if your trying to snipe with it). Out to about 18m it does 50 damage (2 shot kill). You either hit people behind this guy, or just thought you saw hit markers in the heat of the moment. Also all of those damage numbers are keeping in mind thats in Normal, HC long distance it's probably a 3 shot kill.

    They didn't nerf the Rex. I just got done with a round where I 1 shot killed a guy in HC.

    I was trolled when I played that map so much on TDM. It is easy to get kills though for unlocks.
    Exactly why I did it:rockout:
