I dont know about other people but I didn't see any gore after 1.5 patch!
The game is more realistic with blood and dismemberment.
The footsteps are louder and shots are a little low too.
Those were not good changes!
I still see gore and dismemberment unchanged since 1.5, check your settings.
None of these Have been changed, Check the patch notes, Dismemberment still works fine, Check your settings.
