@marksmanmax Well they should fix it then... Making animation mags the ones that are droped on the ground, or making the mag-spawn less obvious.
I mean... The makarov mag isn't even the right mag model. It looks more like a .45 ACP mag than a 9x18mm mag.
@marksmanmax Yeah. That's another debate, lol. I too think that using a bolt-action rifle is too expensive and too slow, especially compared to semi-auto marksman rifles... The SVD is a pure one-shot killing beast, can have a 15 rounds mag... There is simply no reason to use a bolt-action in this game, atm.
Reloading is extremely slow. Loading even one bullet takes about 5 seconds, which is insanity. However, reloading when the gun is empty skips an animation that greatly lengthens the reload time. Personally, I think that animation just shouldn't exist at all.
This animation is perfectly logical. When the gun is empty, you eject the shell and reload. As simple as that. When the gun is not empty, you put your fingers in the chamber to avoid ejecting a non-fired shell. Each time you cycle the bolt, a shell is ejected, so it's perfectly normal and realistic to prevent that from happening.
It was not the case some time ago, and it was driving me mad seeing such poor animations. Like... You fire 4 times, you want to reload, eject the fifth cartridge and put 4 back, and voilà ! You magically have 5 shots again ! Wonderful round-generating rifle.
Still totally agree as for the rest of the critic.
Soooo, I checked it. Yeah, all weapons drop a second mag that has the purpose of staying on the groud. The animation "cheats" by ejecting a fake non-physical mag, and a physical mag just spawns mid-air in front of you just drop on the floor. That's pretty ugly... Try it at the range. It shows best with the makarov, imo...
@marksmanmax When you make a minigame out of TKing, some people will want to play, that's all I'm saying. Being a traitor can be fun if you manage to survive. You can even manage to make somebody kill you just after the time limit so he will have one TK and become the traitor himself. Plus, it's more complicated than a "do you forgive" system.
In addition to that, your system requires people to have a functioning mic and to speak English to work, which is far from ideal especially when it comes to UE servers on which people from various nationalities come to play.
