It's just too bad that the game makers can't see it that way, because body shots do not kill your opponent, unless they are badly hurt already, to me that's just WEAK!
I'm all for "Headshots" but I have shot people in the head, at close range with time to spare to aim, and of course they lived to turn around and shoot me.
So when they get the damage & hit box correct (cause I'm tired of dying around corners), but more importantly when they get the "Checking for Hacking" issues solved, call me, I might be more than just a little interested...
Those aren't complaints they are legitimate issues with The Battlefield Series, especially Bad Company 2....
I'll admit the hit boxes were pretty atrocious in BF2 and BC2. However, I haven't witnessed really any hacking whatsoever. I'm surprised this is even a complaint. I also agree with the sniper rule. If I shot someone with a .50 cal, even in the leg, that's most likely a pretty lethal injury (leg blown off). That being said, everyone would use snipers if they were that easy to kill with.
Does it suck that someone can just spray'n'pray a LMG in a shorter amount of time then it takes you to fire a sniper round, and lets say two M9 bullets? Absolutely, but that is just how the game is made.
IF there was to be a one hit kill sniper rifle, I'd say let it be a level 50 unlock, or reach 1 millions points with recon or something.
