Two more things to note:

  1. Ping - joining servers with as low ping as possible (up to 50-60). Everyone in server having the same. Not noticing anything wrong ping.
  2. FPS - 50-60 fps always (during whole game and freezes).

Hi,

not sure if it was posted. Tried searching but did not found anything good. So, sorry if it should not belong here.

Current problem for me: randomly game freezes in game (coop mode at least). It freezes, you can walk around, shoot and so on, but after few seconds you will be teleported to some location or you will be killed during that freeze. Only way to notice that something is wrong, is that bots might be going in straight line, you can't shoot them down and they don't react to anything. And when everything unfreezes into some mess (you getting swarmed, getting killed and so on).

Does anyone has same problem? Maybe it is know issue and fix is known? Or i hope it will be fixed later on.

Glad you have created this post. I have same issues. Did not play the game for 2-3 weeks and came back to teleportation game.

I have noticed it also and thought that i might be wrong about it :D. But i believe there would be no big difference, because most things are penetrable. So maybe you would lose 1-2 shots. But it still would be cool feature.

You can override you preset. Lets say you have preset "L1", you can select all your loadout and then press "save preset" and enter "L1". You will be receive message saying that this name for preset already exists and it will be deleted. Click "yes" or "ok' (i don't remember) and your new preset will be saved on same name "L1". I have changed my presets many times like this. it was month ago 😃

Well, there was a topic about about armor, but it was reversed - armor is too strong. So, i think it is just personal opinion. I think it is nice that armor is not something that boosts you way over the top. Now you don't die instantly (at least from low caliber guns). That is all it should do. If you want your way, would you be happy to lay down for some time on ground after being hit with AK (in real life from pain or being unconscious)?

Well, this post starts to seem more like "missing teamwork in coop" for me (sorry if i am totally wrong). I am not saying that all your suggestions are bad. Actually, I am really impressed, how much good suggestions you have given.

From my personal experience, teamwork needs communication. When I am playing I rarely hear people communicating via radio. Maybe in other regions this is not a problem? Everyone knows the objective and everyone seems to work on it on their own (maybe considering others a bit). I really appreciate then someone takes initiative and talks, gives commands and tells what he is going to do. All this talk makes game somewhat more fun and produces more teamwork.

So my point, maybe teamwork can be achieved without changing the game.

Of course, there is some considerations/problems about talking via radio - bad mic, having to talk silently or can't talk at all, because other family members are sleeping, etc...

what do you think about this? Maybe you have some suggestions for silent players to tell what are they trying to do and how can they contribute to teamwork?

P.S. Sorry if this does not belong here. Feel free to redirect me 🙂

@MarksmanMax Thanks for reply and info!

VSS Vintorez is considered a special sniper rifle. I thought it would be nice addition to Insurgents sniper because it could be more versatile in urban area. Also, Security sniper has 3 primary weapons (M16, M14 , M24 ) but Insurgents sniper has only 2 options (SVD, Mosin).

I have tried to do long range shots but i did not notice bullet drop or travel time. I have missed many shots when i tried to compensate for bullet drop and travel time. So now most of time i shot to body and it seem to hit where i am aiming. Leading ahead of player module? i am not sure... maybe 1-3 pixels 😃

Why is M24 so bad (I will try to look it up on your post)? Regarding M14 - totaly agree that it is great weapon!

I agree that you can find spots for snipers, but i often find myself switching and going for shorter ranges even on Canyon. Maybe i haven't found every spot in these maps 🙂

PSO-1 is best on SVD. I run it on SVD also. High five! 😃

Hi,

Sorry if this topic already exists (if so, feel free to delete it).
In my opinion bolt action sniper rifles does not have any advantages right now (only 7x scope which is available for sniper class).
I have tried to find some longer ranges (that is quite hard) and snipe with m24/mosin with 7x scope. It was really unsatisfying when you hit body shot and it does not kill an enemy. Maybe i have hit only his arm? Let me now if bullets can go straight through arm and still do damage to body. If that is not the case and here I am wrong about body shots, when also let me know.

Another topic i would like to address here would be how sniper class could be improved:

  1. I think it would be nice to see some more open area map(s) where without 4x and 7x would be a lot harder to play. Maybe even bullet drop or time travel would be seen?
  2. Sniper class for Insurgents could have one more primary gun (I believe). My suggestion would be VSS Vintorez.

What you think about all of this?
