    Minor bug: Bio-Rifle Head Shot!

    For some reason, it's possible to get head shots with the bio-rifle under fluky circumstances. I think I've figured it out, but I'm not sure if this happens every time, or just once every so often.

    Imagine three players. A, B and C.

    A lands some goop onto B.
    C head-shot's B with a sniper rifle while A's goop is still in place.

    A gets credited with the kill, and the announcer calls head-shot on their machine, even though they've never wielded a sniper-rifle during this whole incident.

      Well, I wouldn't be surprised if swallowing some goo made your head explode all on it's own, never mind the sniper's headshot...

        You see, the bullet of Person C never reached person B; it instead exploded the goo around person B's head, thus it was actually a goop kill, and thus person A got the kill AND the bio explosion on the head which caused the headshot.

            On a semi-unrelated note, I actually wish we could get headshots with any weapon. Maybe not for quite as much of a damage bonus, but at least some. I mean, is a rocket to the face really that much less grievous than a sniper bullet?

              However, it might cause the shock rifle experts to become seriously overpowered, if they could get headshots with the shock beam.

                If that were the case, person C should get the goop kill and that's it. There's no headshot since the bullet never reaches the head, and C instigates the kill so it should be C's kill. Same as when you take someone out with a vehicle explosion.

                    If you shoot at a blob of Bio goop it detonates, it "makes sense" for player A to get the kill. Lol, it is kinda weird..

                    I like it though, prevents them from getting your kill.
                    If that were the case, person C should get the goop kill and that's it.
                    Player A was there 'first'. Thats it.

                      I don't mean all headshots should do massive damage, just more than regular shots. Maybe a bonus that'd vary with weapon, depending on balance issues.
