I never understood why my PMC decides to angle his head at a 45-degree angle the second he shoots a higher recoil gun, it's like he gets possessed or something lol

ID: hr8hpqo

It just hits him in the right spot and he can't help but feel a bit of pleasure from it

Combat hardened PMCs shoot battle rifles with the chick lean stance for whatever reason.

ID: hr96lym

That's if you don't starve to death 5 minutes into the raid.

ID: hr8rvg6

Chick lean, damn they even have a word for it lol

You guys don't have an epilepsy seizure when full autoing rifles?

ID: hr83zoi

Now that you say that I wonder if it's ever happened to somebody.

Probably has.

ID: hr8atkk

Can't join the shooting part of the army with epilepsy. They probably learned that the hard way

You mean the quest on factory when you have to place toolsets on the red and blue flashing lights causing people to seize out.

Standing with 7.62 nato rifle, this is not far of base. The only difference is the barrel would be higher than your head. Fals can full auto. Doesn’t mean you should outside a prone braced position. See it’s use in the Falklands war.

Didn’t they remove camera recoil in 12.10 or something? I hate that the gun’s recoil isn’t the main issue, it’s your PMC’s neck snapping at a 45 degree angle

ID: hr9bcbg

There was an easily replicated bug that removed camera recoil, everyone liked it, so BSG toned down camera recoil across the board.

ID: hr9rkl1

there was another incident where they patched the game and accidentally every gun had no visual recoil, everyone liked it, then BSG patched it a couple of hours later

ID: hr9k9py

What was the bug back then? I played this games since alpha on and off, never noticed...

Remember when they toned down visual recoil by a fucking lot and most people said it was the best tarkov ever felt to shoot in? See how they just completely go back on this shit?

ID: hr8xtxp

Yeah I'm not sure why either, I understand if your head jerks because you were shot by somebody and going through shock, however most people keep their eyes forward when shooting a gun so its odd why you would look up left and right during recoil

Bobble head PMCs

7 : Anonymous2022/01/04 13:57 ID: hr7op04

I could understand that kind of recoil if you’re a little kid holding a gun for the first time, but these are trained mercenary’s right? I would think the recoil would be more controlled. Lol

ID: hr7wvp0

The real kicker is, the rifle isn't even recoiling that much, it's just the bobble head PMC that can't keep his neck straight. The barrel actually rocks back downward, the way it would in real life, but you can barely tell bc Bobby Bobblehead is looking at his light bulbs.

ID: hr81gg3

Oh no it still recoils a shit load when I start firing I compensate by looking at the floor about 3 meters Infront of me to keep the irons in the same spot as when I started

ID: hr8mksl

Not only that, but eyes move independently of your head. I know, crazy concept. Most people will have their eyes locked on the target even when their head moves.

ID: hr84jlm

I think I heard BSG is going to redone how recoil works in this game.

I am a novice still at Shooting my ar probably scarcely 1000 rounds through, there definitely a degree of snappiness and a little visual distortion of your surroundings when you rapidly fire but idk how they'd represent that without making it super easy to full auto all the time.

ID: hr8ibyw

You would think, but never forget: your PMC has to examine toilet paper (among many other items) to know what it is lol.

ID: hr9ccjy

A trained soldier will be able to keep their eyes on target. But controlling a short stroke .308 rifle on full auto from a standing position will never be controllable outside the most experienced, familiar with the weapon, soldiers. Not to mention raw strength and poise.

This is hilarious

9 : Anonymous2022/01/04 14:09 ID: hr7q8ap

for people trying to use mods or skill level as an excuse please tell me how its even remotely close recoil to this

Also PSA in the video I am compensating for the recoil when I start firing I bring the irons down to about 3m Infront of me on the floor. If I do not compensate at all the gun will aim about 1.5m above that first target without any mouse input

"just like that"

ID: hr8306b

now i would like a Patrick USEC character ingame.

ID: hr7wtvs

I've shot a full-auto Israeli FAL and this is exactly my experience. From my very first mag I was able to control the rifle in bursts. I dumped a mag at the very end of my time with the rifle and it was relatively easy to stay on the 50m silhouette. Obviously, there's a lot of impulse because it's a big round but muzzle climb/bounce was minimal.

10 : Anonymous2022/01/04 14:58 ID: hr7wr2i

yeah even meta fals still kinda suck );

11 : Anonymous2022/01/04 16:46 ID: hr8crve

Try the VSS Vintorez its like shoulder firing a BTR’s 30mm cannon. Completely unusable even in semi automatic

12 : Anonymous2022/01/04 16:54 ID: hr8dxie

Thank God our trained pmc's have experience with shooting and handling firearms...

13 : Anonymous2022/01/04 17:05 ID: hr8fj9k

The VAL/VSS is in a pretty dire state as well ... It now has more recoil than a DMR, even in single shot lmao

14 : Anonymous2022/01/04 16:14 ID: hr87wd3

Absolutely no neck muscles

15 : Anonymous2022/01/04 14:52 ID: hr7vtuc

What's crazy is they fixed the camera recoil last wipe or the one before it and it was one of the best changes ever. It's basically reverted now and looks like shit again on most guns.

ID: hr8cuyv

I think it was a bug, but it did feel really good. I hoped they were going to keep it, but alas.

ID: hr8wy1t

The ONE bug we all hoped Nikita wouldn't fix, but also the ONE bug that Nikita fixed at record fucking time, and the ONE bug that actually remains fixed over subsequent patches. Fuck me

ID: hr8i9dh

That looks so good

ID: hr8tapm

It felt so damn good. Felt like you control over where the gun fired.

ID: hr9a0gx

OMG I literally get a wave of relief rewatching this video.

Only to be met with harsh reality later.

16 : Anonymous2022/01/04 15:36 ID: hr828tc

They added camera recoil back for apparently no reason and it's just dumb

ID: hr8ewfz

what even is "camera recoil" your pmc leaning his head back? His eyes just rolling back into his skull?

Making a funny face while you shoot? i really don't get it.

press the B button and it becomes a great gun

semi-auto gang rise up

Doubt the FAL is ever coming back, nikita seems pretty pressed on the general opinion of reddit these days and the overwhelming group thought before this wipe was recoil needs to be nerfed and more like pubg. While i dont agree with that, and the FAL in tarkov has a special place in my heart as one of my favorites in any game, it was honestly broken and OP and needed to be balanced especially in the m62 days.

Reddit didn’t like to talk about the fact that only a handful of platforms fully modded with meta parts were laser beams, but now we got more recoil across the board anyway.

ID: hr8f8hd

i miss the m80 days when the FAL had 0 recoil and 1 shot in the chest. Complete broken and needed to be fixed though

19 : Anonymous2022/01/04 15:50 ID: hr84bg6

The FAL is pretty well done, the thing that tips it over is the atrocious head movement

20 : Anonymous2022/01/04 16:30 ID: hr8aaa7

If they want the fucking gun to be balanced okay increase the recoil then.

Doesn't mean make the weapon completely unusable because of shitty camera kick.

If this is their solution to fixing meta weapons do the same shit to m4. But they wont since you can lower the recoil for the damn thing easily.
