THe 50 cal is not accurate to true military standards a all (honestly a few of the guns are not). With 11 years in the Armed Forces I can tell you you can not fire that gun at close range with out bruising yourself and missign the target. You need to R Brace it and have at least a 100 feet for an accurate hit.
Now it does throw off game play. Those with out Skill tend to pick it up as a weapon of choice, They want to blast through people. Hate to break it to you, but in real combat you would be mince meat and going home for a proper Military Burial.
They do plan to patch it so gamers will be forced to rely n soem real skill. Better practice with multiple guns.
One shot in the head, you know they're dead!
I have found that it takes several shots to kill if it's not a shot in the head. As a result I have been playing better cuz I always aim for a head shot now.
I think they should leave the accuracy alone.

Yeah I am sure it's because I suck that I have to shoot more accuratley. (sorry, just being a smart ***
Actually, your probably right, I use the M16A2, and it's not that great if I am right in front of someone, I have to play a little differently, sneeking around more instead of running around. I did use another gun, quite powerfull, dont remember which one, and it did just as you described, the guy flew into the wall when I shot, and it didn't matter what I was aiming at. But, i dont play as well that way, especailly in this game. (as opposed to ghost recon, where I would always play that way.)
So... I guess it depends on the gun, and your playing style.

I don't think that it's the accuracy of the weapons as much as a problem with the amount of damage inflicted. Too many times have I had people right in front of me with out them seeing me and after putting 6-7 rounds in his chest or back he turns and runs to fight another day. Since when is having to aim for the head reallistic I spent 4yrs in the 82nd Airborne and had some training with Special Forces guys, they teach you to aim center mass. They need to adjust the damage of the weapons except for the .50cal.
I can pick off people very, very easy from long distance with the l85, m16, g3a3, and aug. But when it comes to close quarters it takes 4 mags to kill someone. I think that lag has something to do with why the game is like this. I was playing in a game that seemed to have barely any lag and i run up behind the host(im very sneaky like that lol) and i take out desert eagle, I empty the clip on his back literally point blank, and i fire off all 8 rounds(1 in chamber, 7 clip) and the guy doesnt move, i see blood, but he doesnt move or die, then i reload, HE RUNS AWAY! THen a teammate comes around and kills him.
That is what they need to fix.
I heard somebody complaining about this game lagging and im starting to believe it.

I've noticed that too, being easier to pick off guys from a distance. I emptied an entire mag from as AK47 into a guy from like 15ft and he didn't die, I was firing short controlled bursts the guy couldn't figure out where I was shooting from. He ran out of the room while I was reloading. Then I'm all the way down the end of a long hall at laest 100ft and kill a guy with one 3-5 round burst.
i find the guns' accuracy to be quite realistic. if you aim well, it don't take alot. like, in one level i got one killer hiding spot, and picked each guy off with either 1 shot to the head or 2-3 shots to the chest. its realistic, if you hit a guy in the foot he ain't gon die, same with limbs, shoulder, etc.

Aside from the .50 cal issue, I feel it is way to early to be whining about stuff like the aiming. I have also seen crazy stuff like 2 guys going through about 3 clips each at point blank range and not hitting anything, but I chalk it up to a lack of skill/time with the game. Get better, practice, play and see what you have to say after another week or so.
i've had lots of practice - and the aiming is just fine
it takes a while to get used to, that's all
tonight i played with 11 other friends in team survival
we started at the top of the primary weapons list and everyone used the same gun, w/ no secondaries
we played a game with each gun, primary and secondary, everyone using the same thing -
it took a while, but i can tell you that the aiming is fine - shoot 'em in the face and you'll kill 'em dead with any gun - even those "crappy" ones no one uses - everything's lethal
