Re: The ammo count NEEDS to be removed from the HUD!

Apr 7, 2013
I guess, but to me, checking for ammo in an animation would only work with a revolver. I don't know how that would work with other weapons....

^ You would take the magazine out and count how many bullets you have left

You're gonna take out every single bullet (individually animated) with an automatic rifle? seems a bit redundant and inconvenient don't you think?

Condemened (Not sure this is spelled right) did this quite well. Check it out.  

 

 

Having an icon in your face  YOU HAVE 4 BULLETS LEFT is less tense than checking on your own admist a gunfight, or realizing you have no ammo when your about to dome a survivor. 

 

Now I hear you, not everyone wants to check their ammo every so often, cause it's a hassle. Hence the toggle. Beautiful little thing, goes on and off.   

 

But this may not even happen because ND could alreadly be done with the game, they could just be polishing. Regardless, this feature would make the game alot better, for me at least.


Joel: That's alright. I believe him.

You don't need to take out each bullet

 

This is a P-mag:

 

 

 

The white part is transparent and it helps gauge how many bullets you have

 

There's this Glock Mag:

 

 

Each of thos holes would have a bullet seen through if the mag was full

 

 

 

And then theres this 1911 magazine, which has holes and markings for each bullet:

 

 

 

Case in point, you don't need to take out each individual bullet, so having an animation in which Joel takes out the magazine isn't that infeasible. If the guns he uses don't have these type of magazines, he can weigh the mag to estimate how many bullets he has left.

That sounds SO overly complicated, and the odds of finding that kind of equipment 20 years after an outbreak that has destroyed many military bases considering the quarantine zone in boston is one of the last, odds are slim. And taking out a magazine and individually counting each hole to see if there is a bullet through seems JUST as IF NOT THE SAME as taking out each bullet.

These magazines are common. And an experienced killer would know how to count bullets in a mag

Are players who sit in front of the tv playing video games an experienced killer? Does being an experienced killer make a difference with you're ability to count? Are we all marines sir!?!? My point is it would be annoying to count you're ammo while one-hit-kill monsters are running at you. If there is a toggle for this, than that's cool, but if it were shipped with this (which I highly doubt) than that would be dumb.
