    Improving your DM skills - Guide I wrote

    Here is a short guide I wrote. I'm not claiming it's perfect, but hopefully it will help a few people who are looking for help.

    AFAIK, there's no headshot bonus for the enforcer, so it would be wiser to aim for a bigger part of their body (for DM players, the biggest part is usually their ego )

    Edit: Further down there's a general hint to "aim for the head". AFAIK, only the sniper rifle makes a difference where you hit. So why aim for what's harder to hit?

      hmm, from what i remember, the enforcer also makes a difference between head and body. not to sure about that though. the rest of the weapons don't make any difference so just aim for what you can hit better.

        I just tested the enforcer head-shot against a bot. It took 5 hits in the torso to kill it and 5 hits in the head. So it doesn't appear to make any real difference (if any at all).

          hmm, most likely no difference at all. good to clear that out

          so, except when you have a sniper, aim for what you can hit better

            Only the sniper has a head shot bonus. Sniper damage to body is "only" 70, but sniper head shot deals 150 damage. oouch!

              So would it be possible to surivive a head shot with 199 health?

                It's 140 to the head. Double the 70

                        According to the Official Strategy Guide it's 150 damage. Maybe someone should test it to see if the guide is wrong. I have not found any other errors in it, but it was published in 2007 at the same time the game made it to the shelves.
