Possible Bug: "Long Range downs" not working.

17 replies 1478 views Edited Jul 2, 2013

I have shot people from near start to end of map with both Hunting Rifle and Military Sniper Rifle and the downs are not counting. Doing it with the bow doesnt seem to work either, but the bow range is very small in comparison.

Anyone managed to get a down count? If yes, how?

Thanks!

I haven't done it as a mission, but I have seen "Long range down" and a parts bonus.

Now, that was before 1.02... so make of that what you will.

I'll pay cost attention this week. My main weapon is the HR, so I do get a lot of long range downs.

I think it works. Just got one this morning. In Checkpoint from a room with two windows, shooting a sniper with my revolver on the second floor on the building across. Not even that far away.

Apparently killing someone near the truck with a health kit in it on Lakeside in the house at the far end isn't "Long Range"

Don't bother with the Long Ranger downs.  In a year, forumers will complain how difficult it is to get them and then ND will decrease the distance in a patch which will water down all your previous accomplishments.

You need to be at least 3/4 the distance of the map for it to count as long range. It's ludicrous. If you're in the center truck on Lakeside and shooting someone on the Balcony it's not far enough.

Probably the hardest challenge to complete that I've seen.
