Pro 198 dmg bodyshot from spawn?

Really? Why does the stupid machina do so much damage for bodyshots? It's such a bad balance idea and encourages noobs to sit in spawn away from any danger and go for bodyshots.

The tracer round is not enough of a downside, the +15% dmg needs to only be applied to headshots and give it a -15% dmg to bodyshots.

You probably a pyro. Well, your fault for not playing a real class, mate. Like Soldier or Shotgun Heavy.


And Machina max damage is 173, blame damagespread.

Machina fullbodyshotters from inside the spawn - I call them The lowest form of life known to man. But it is "legit" strategy, like f.e. camping spawn doors with stickies. Just let them get out of their spawn and then paint the walls with them.

Idle curiosity, but would anyone be in favor of ditching the +15% damage bonus and full charge penetration for always having penetrating shots on Headshots?

I might actually use the machina then.

machina does too much damage, no reason for 518 damage headshots, the 15% damage is excessive so would be better reduced with no penantly for the sake of fairness, 198 bodyshots = too much

Ditto. Sounds better than what we have now.

Too...much...damage?

because of 518 damage headshots?

You DO realize that NOTHING IN THIS GAME has more than 450 HP, right?

198 bodyshots ARE too much, but the headshots are irrelevant.

It's possible to survive a 518 damage hit without being invulnerable -- off hand, there are at least three ways (dead ringer, fists of steel, and phlogiston).

Three things specifically designed to make you survive ANYTHING, and all of which disable your attack power while in use.
