    Note: if this was the original UT, Plumb would be correct. Headshot was an automatic frag in the original.

      No, the ut sniper rifle did 150 headshot damage...not an instant kill.

        Lets put it this way, if you hit someone with the LG and their head lights up on fire but they dont die, pull out the mini and chase their *** down.

          Followed by shouts of "Noob!" "Mini-*****!" along with statements about your mother
          Which is then followed by the screamer getting killed once more(preferably with the shieldgun for further insult)

            Are you sure on that? I never played the original competitively, so it's entirely possible (even probable) that I could be wrong... but for some reason, I strongly recall someone confirming that it was an automatic kill.

              thx for clarifying :up:

                Yes I'm sure. I played it for 5 years Plus I looked it up before I posted.

                    since it hit detection where the system then detects if you hit the headbone, so its kinda an after check after the hit if you actually hit one of the bones thats a part of the head.

                    not true actually. the whole problem with headshots in UT2k4 is that there is no "headbone" like there should be in the models. instead it is determined by the "neckbone" which is in constant movement. hence why a lot of the time, you can shoot the exact same area of a model twice with LG, and get a headshot only once. it's pretty goofy.

                      I find its alot easier to get headshots in with the Sniper Rifle. The Lighting Gun takes too long to recharge, IMO. Plus, the Lighting Gun won't be in the next UT, so its better to start warming up to the Sniper Rifle.

                      In addition, there is a gametype you may want to check out called Pro Sniper, which forces you to land a headshot to get a kill. No other shots mater. That will probably help.

                        I dedicate my 300th post to this thread . Nice find, I think its easier to get headshots offline reather than online, but thats just me playing with masterful bots :P.

                        The easiest EVER headshots were in the original UT days. I still gotta photo of me camping in deck-16 with 50-4 (kills/deaths) somewhere on my webhost. Ill go find it :up: .

                        EDIT: I must of deleted it :down: .
