Got a great new idea for the game?

So it's COD again? Though I don't need such useless feature. Headshots FTW!

Hearing the ding could be a little hard

Nope as a matter of fact. The point is with all the commotion it would be totally useless.

IMO it would be nice, but it just takes away from the confusion of war. Every time we get something that "makes the game easier" we loose some of the realism. I wouldn't be opposed to a miniature "hitfeed" for you only under the minimap however. IMO it should be disabled by the server, and not the player.

If you miss this will still make you miss. It's not homing bullets, it just tells you when you do hit.

Kind of like the killfeed for semi users...

I don't understand why anyone would think this makes the game easier. It doesn't. It just makes the game less confusing. I'm pretty sure most FPS games have a system like this, why Ben chose to omit one is beyond me.

DUH :l I know that. But it makes me rage when it looks like I clearly hit him but it was a miss.

Exact point of this thread. Thought Ben should get someone telling him about it.

I think the real question is why are you shooting to wound instead of shooting to kill @[email protected]

It's called human error.

For those of us unfamiliar with the concept of error, it would also be ever so useful in situations where one might be shooting for exposed legs or taking blind shots at towers. Both scenarios host issues only present in-game due to limitations like fog and disappearing bodies. The inclusion of hit markers wouldn't cause AoS to be any less war-like.

I am much more in favor of hitsounds. High-pitch ding for a headshot, low-pitch for a bodyshot. Visual cues mess with your sight picture and add clutter to your field of view.

I am sceptical. Are hits beyond fog possible?
