Default Shotgun nerf/Bodyarmor ballistics/7.62 headshots etc

General thread for feedback of new ballistics, since I still see a LOT of chatter about em ingame.
Well I experienced primarily the 762 headshots and bodyarmor ballistics.

2 shots to body for 762, 3 with 556..

Headshots make you go dead-dead instantly with 762.

I like it, it makes things more realistic although didn't change the playstyle too drastically.


I heard lots of complaining about the shotgun being crap any further than 0.5m(which they stated took a two shot kill already) from a couple of people. I didn't experience this because I nearly never had hands on a shotgun, but a peculiar situation gave me a M1014 and.. this happened.

Well shotguns are indeed shit, but you shooting the enemy in his toes isn't really helping a lot

Have you tried not shooting the ground?
This isn't CS, there are no spray patterns.

How deep can we dig with shotguns

Escape from Tarkov has taught me to shoot toes with shotgun if they have body armor

You literally just missed every single shot lol, not an issue of the damage model.

(unrelated) Shotgun is probably the least reliable weapon on high ping.. I don't even bother, no matter how much or how little damage it does. I'm aware blood is client side before you post.

Shotguns have pretty tight spread, it's hard to tell but you might really just have to aim at your target.

Shotguns need buff not nerf if you actually use them like i do a lot you will fast realise its luck based game with them even when you really really close (under 1 fricking meter) i had situations where i was like right next to a enemy i shot he didnt die he turned around and shot me , specially with chinese shogtun like i think have curse with it

Stats-wise shotguns are in a very good spot right now, not too good and not too bad. This thread was posted before they reverted the damage model changes when shotguns truly were completely fucked.

The unreliability of shotguns is caused by BF2's dodgy hitreg and is further exacerbated by how shit most servers run, join a server with good hardware and shotguns feel good, join a poopy one and you get this.
