Hey guys, so I heard about the planned rework to NWAF....I am so hyped about this, I really hope it will become more open and simplified, similar to the old 0.62 airfield.
The thing that made the 0.62 airfield so creepy and tense was the "sniper threat" that always lurked, even over long range
However, in dayz right now the damage drop off on sniper rifles is very very extreme. For example, a winchester shot at 400m vs somebody with a plate carrier will deal around 30 damage (for anybody reading who doesn't know, the player has 100 health) ....this means that in order to kill somebody at 400m you have to hit them 4 times, in the chest....if you land any arm shots etc this number will become even higher. This basically makes sniping at range in dayz very useless and underwhelming
I think it would be a shame to rework NWAF and not rework sniper damages. As it stands right now, the feeling of a "sniper threat" isnt very high when you know it will take somebody 4 shots to kill you from a distance
Very much looking forward to the new NWAF design, thanks for reading <3
