The Rocket Launcher Seems way too fast
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Anytime you are firing rockets from the launcher no matter how far away the target is, the rocket seems to almost be instant. So if the target was 1/2 mile away, the rocket gets there the same time it would a target 100 yards away. There should be some sort of delay to make it look more life like.

Well, some AT ammunition is indeed very fast. You need to take this into account. As an example RPG-7's V round has a muzzel velocity of about 110m/s RPG-29 has twice as much and both of them are actually granades, not even rockets. With an average engagement distance as of now it would take less then 2 seconds to hit target.

This is not COD or BF where rockets travel at 20-30 m/s. In real life a crummy RPG7 goes from around 115 m/s at launch to almost 300m/s (+1000 kph) while a javelin reaches over mach 1.7 in flight (+2000 kph).

Closing due to lack of activity for over 5 months. If this issue/request is still valid in the latest dev build, please create a new ticket or ask for this one to be re-opened.
