First things first, yes, I do miss at times and yes in the heat of the moment I'll think he sponged and get mad. However I'm aware that in my frustration I claim stupid things but after an hour or two OFF this game I'll come to my senses and acknowledge my inperfection that comes with the territory of being a human being.
To business: Has anyone ever notice that the pellets from the gnasher "disappear" sometimes? I was playing after not playing for months because I cant stand inconsistencies and seems like this game just get worse. I was point blanking and seeing like a little smudge of blood appear and thinking wtf....isn't there suppose to be about 8 pellets in a gnasher blast? And then he'll one shot me and die instantly. I can't get gibs anymore, everything takes at least two shots no matter what the range but on average it will take somewhere between 4-6 shots.
Sometimes I'll put 4 shots into someone thinking, "finally you bullet proof moron" and the kill feed will say something ridiculous like 20-40 percent and I'm thinking WHAAAA????
I notice other things too, sometimes the shot doesn't appear at all, the shot will appear behind an intended target or if i miss I see blood pop out of the air behind a target. And if feels lately its next to impossible to shoot someone when they're down, blood pops up but I'll pump an extra 2-3 shots into someone while their down and trying to revive someone is now almost a nightmare.
I don't know anymore, I don't think it has anything to do with my connection. I have open NAT, my dude doesnt stutter and I dont rubberband. I cant say the same for my opponents though. I wish I knew what server I was connecting too and how much that network smoothing hides the amount of packet loss that's probably occurring.
Sorry for the long post....hopefully someone may have an explanation.
