So i just spent an hour running to elektro on a hardcore server, when i get there i go into the fire station and walk up the stairs, when i got to the top floor i saw some gear and walked over to it... Black screen "You are dead"
- Legacy ID
Go to top floor of fire-station
This has happened multiple times and i am getting really frustrated loosing my gear this way.
yeah, it's terrible. it's called headshot. for less realistic deaths play COD. have you seen that last Tom Cruise movie where he dies a million times, often very surprisingly? yeah, death can occur so quick leaving you clueless.
also it's not random. you are exposed like a mazafaka up there. no wonder you keep getting sniped.
the only thing you can do is be smart about where you move (think about your exposure - ask yourself "am I going to be a snipers breakfast if I move there?") and be very, very, VERY healthy before you are attacked. eat a lot, drink a lot. always. even when it says you are energized and hydrated in bright green. also study how the health system works. there's a few youtube videos out there made by a german guy called Merino who explains how it works in a bunch of videos. here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9YSGX22B6Z3k9-hJzJcz4w/videos
There is a strange point of never hearing any shots when this happens. No bullets hitting or no shots fired after towards your friends. No shooting sounds heard at the time of this kind of death. I've experienced this three times, two times on very low populated servers.
I'm not saying it can't be sniper, just saying it could be also a bug
