Props to you for showing me that site. I just wasted the last hour and a half of my life watching those videos.

Very cool video, but it in no way represents a WWII M2. The M82A1 does have less MV then the M2HB (830 for the M82 and 930 for the M2) the ammo is what counts. The video I believe is using much better ammo then what was in WWII. I dont think AP rounds in WWII had tungsten penetrators like what was in that video.

Cool.

But that gun has twice the MV the M2 does.

The people from DICE (BF2) should see this - anybody in Bf2 takes 2 hits from a Cal50 Sniper, before he goes down. Big time LOL

From my quick google search, the M2 had about 100FPS more MV then the M82. Maybe your thinking of SLAP ammo thats just like SABOT ammo. A 7.62MM projectile housed in a .50 cal shuttle thats ejected once it leaves the muzzle, greatly increasing its MV and penetration power. The rounds in the video are NOT SLAP rounds snice you can see there jackets peeled back in the safe, but the tungsten core went through, and out the other side.

Anywhere in the center body mass should be a 1 shot 1 kill hit with the .50 cal, no exceptions. I have shot people point blank in the head and they can and will survive. Some servers somehow tweak the settings and I have found some servers that have upped the power of the .50 cal and I was dropping target easy.

Neat holes... wouldn't necessarily translate into structural failure though even if it was the same gun and ammo, eh?

A neat hole through the engine block is fatel for inline engines. Also pilots dont do so well with a 1/2" neat hole through them. 2 neat holes through the radiator will drain coolent rather quickly.

bf2 isnt about realism, thats to balance out sniper rifles, u think sniper rifles are hard to hit with(i dont) in the game but every other weapon stuggles to hit ppl point blank, like in ofp the all powerful weapon was the sniper rifle.

There are more then 1 ways to balance guns then damage. Reload and clip size for one, and also walk/run speed for another.
