What happen to the times when you aim at your opponent, squeeze the trigger and seeing them fall marvelously after being struck in the head by a single shot. Forget about the lack of realism where one wears no armour or throws grenades like candy. Talk about the issues where if I choose to use a pistol ( possessing with matching aiming skill)and am confident enough (like Jack Bauer) to take out a troop of guys with nothing but my pistol, I could do so. But facing the facts of the lack of realism with the head shot, no one can be confident enough - and at the last point where you are out of ammo- see the purpose of a pistol as secondary weapon is now becoming obsolete. Why oh why have we resorted to such inadequate joy play. I want realism.

...buy a realistic game. If you want Vegas to be more realistic, get to the end of the line

Well I don't know what game you're playing. Headshots are the ONLY thing that register in this game realistically. I don't have a problem squeezing the trigger and seeing them fall marvelously after being struck in the head by a single shot. It always works. Now bodyshots are another story.
However, I agree with you on the grenades and armorless people running around like total idiots.
I doubt this game or any game for that matter would be very much fun if it were totally realistic.

pistols work great when you are hanging on a rope... i can routinely shoot people in the head from across streets if I'm on a rope.

Damage for pistols is increased when you're hanging on a rope. It's a one shot one kill anywhere on the body while you're hanging from a rope.
I like to sit on the ropes and shoot across the map on kill house.

well head shots are an automatic kill no matter what rank you are. now the damage to the body differs depending on your rank (Not sure if thats true but it seems like it). But if it doesnt it should take 3-4 body shots on some one to kill them. Snipers are 1 shot kill anywhere on body i think.

You seriously think rank affects the damage your body shots inflict. Wow, rank means absolutely nothing in this game. It just represents the amount of time you've spent in playing it.

also people who have a higher rank could have a better shot because they have spent more time playing the game.

I agree, rank means nothing (there are loads of people who have glitched their rank up) but a great shot probably means the gamer has spent more hours playing the game (or is a natural 'beast' lol).

Ok proved me wrong as you see in the parenthesis up at my post i had no idea.

i just miss the AR's being accurate. instead of this 1 shot being 2 feet off target. nothing i love more then sitting on a corner peak out and single shot 3 shots at someones head with them standing still and see my shots land all around them on the wall about a foot off where my redical was at.

I agree ravenfire. I hate everything after the patch. I loved the way every gun worked before the patch. I used to be able to use the Ak-47 now it's total ****.
Also are you standing still while you're firing or are you moving. Just wandering because the AR's are pretty accurate when you're standing still. At least for me.

**** i was talking about the old rainbows. not post patch i love what the patch did. i hated it prior. it was nothing but a spray and prey fest. not its only a semi sprey and prey fest.. some servers seem like the patch never effected them and others its like the patch was supercharged. i like staying in those ones where its seems the best.
and i said sitting a corner peaking meaning im posted up.. stoped. not running. happened twice today on kill house. i was posted up second level shooting 2 guys lined up with a 6c (my best gun) and neither drooped. used an entire mag only for them to turn around while i was reloading and spray the **** out of me and kill me with an mp7 (hate that damn gun).
