Better recoil compensation system
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Weapon attachments should decrease the recoil (suppressors, grenade launchers, etc.). This would probably affect the smaller weapons more than larger rifles. Maybe add recoil compensators as a new attachment?

A lazer does not decrease recoil in real life... And neither do sights...

Well, there is some point to it. Weapon attachments add mass, thereby reducing *felt* recoil and amount of aim drift. However, this also means the weapon is harder to handle.
But - for 200g laser sight compared to 5kg rifle this is negligible. Unless you're talking about Beta-C mags...

Exactly. In some cases, suppressors on sidearms can reduce recoil (I think). A fully-kitted-up weapon should have some recoil reduction.

Yeah, I was not even talking about foregrips/recoil compensators. Although, the ticket description needs to be clarified a lot.

Good propose, silencer, GL launcher, handgrip, flashlight decrease recoil!

Confirmed by real life
