Would it be possible for a slower death to occur when you get shot?
Instead of the instant black screen ‘you are dead’ we should see our character fall to the floor, and slowly fade away.
This wouldn’t have to take any longer than the current 15 seconds respawn counter. Currently, when the countdown reaches 0, the camera glitches to our eye POV for a split-second. If this already happening accidentally, then surely it’s possible for you to let us see for the whole 15 seconds?
Make it obscured with red filters, blackness fading in and out, with the ability to look around.
Instant black can be cool, but it’s far too anti-climactic for it to happen ALL the time.
Headshots SHOULD still be instant. The impact of an instant death would actually be increased if it didn’t happen all the time.
