[Dev] All weapons got nerfed?
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I opened up ArmA 3 following the latest Dev Update (on 11/30/2013, US Standard Calendar). This is not tested in the updates to come out within a week before that date.

For whatever reason, all of the primary infantry weapons (MX rifles, Mk18, Katiba Family, and the F2000s... whatever their in-game name is) all do about as much damage as the 9mm pistols. For test purposes, I've fired a Mk18 (7.62 mind you) into a teammate's face at point blank; took 4 rounds to kill him. When this first happened, I assumed working helmets were finally added to the game; I spawned in a civilian (no helmet) and had the same results with the Mk18.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Shoot someone
  2. Be disappointed
Additional Information

Headshots, body shots, arms, legs, feet, hands, against infantry in and out of armor/vests/uniforms/helmets/backpacks, take considerably more shots to kill with every assault rifle in the game, by default. Similar results with addon weapons; addons that once killed in 2-3 shots to the chest now take 5-7, etc.

I believe the current armor system is still WIP and things are constantly changing and getting better.

@ProGamer I hope they fix it soon, or at least revert to pre-update config and don't change it again until there's a better working model, or at least some documentation.

Confirmed, headshots(to the face, not helmet) doesn't kill in one shot, with the standard assualt rifles, enemies or friendlies, doesn't matter. I even shot an enemy 3 times in the head(helmet) before he died with the mxm marksman rifle.

@TTc30 Thanks for confirming. :)

Jeah Headshots dont kill....

So bad

Dupe of #16542. The new damage system probably shouldn't have made it to 1.08.
