Ballistics overhaul

  • Projectiles fired from firearms are now affected by air drag. This means that projectiles will now lose velocity over time leading to greater bullet drop and longer travel time

  • Hit areas have been modified
    – Neck is now protected by the helmet
    – Damage to the chest area is increased
  • Base damage is now modified by weapon class
    – The actual damage is now taking into account following multipliers
    — Base damage stat of the weapon
    — Distance traveled by the projectile (damage decreases over distance)
    — Hit area damage multiplier
    — Weapon class multiplier
  • Fixed the excessive aim-punch while leaning in ADS mode
  • Removed the blurring effect of the weapon and objects close to camera that appeared in non-ADS mode
