Shooting an Enemy in the Face Should be an Instant Down: Helmets need a tweek

12 replies 302 views Edited Jul 2, 2013

Ok I'll keep this short...I am tired of landing shots directly to an enemies face only to see his helmet blast off. I don't understand how a helmet somehow protects the front of your face from a bullet...it's stupid and needs to be fixed. Thoughts? Am I the only one annoyed by this?

Shoot him in the neck.

You can also shoot a man in the stomach and he keeps going, and doesn't writhe in pain on the ground.

 

You can shoot him in the foot, knee or hip, and he can still sprint over and brain you with a pointed stick.

 

You can hit a man on the head as hard as you can swing with a 2x4 and he can still, calmly, shoot you in the face with a hunting rifle and down you.

 

You can wrap a man's arm in alcohol and cloth and heal him from near death...

 

...ok, these you don't have an issue with...

 

It's a game!

Shoot the legs, armor doesn't cover their legs. It wont break their armor but you'll down them normally as if you were shooting at them while they aren't wearing armor.

 

I would say lame it out like Dead Space and shoot the limbs, but that doesn't apply here as armor covers the arms, I think....correct me if I'm wrong Smiley Frustrated

Um...yeah I believe that was the point of his post. Also the helmets are intenional, they don't need to be fixed, it's not like everyone spawns with them. 

 

This is all coming from someone who uses the hunting rifle, trust me, the helmets are balanced.

Itz fine the way it is. They're right shoot em in the legs but my advice to you is get good, then get a group of ppl who r good to party with you, then utilize them.

My personal opinion, I like to take out ppls armor from long distances cuz they'll have wasted 500 parts. Also, I really don't mind and in fact almost prefer it when my team finishes what I started. Unless of course, if I have a mission about executions.
