View Full Version : First Shot Inaccuracy

I have been messing around with the bolt actions and it seems to whenever i try to fire it from cover the first and sometimes second shot never seems to hit. Is there some mechanic I am missing or are the servers just messing with me?

I've noticed the same thing. There appears to be a bit of scope sway and decreased accuracy for a moment or two when you first pop out from cover, and then your aim steadies and your shots are on target. It appears to be a means of nerfing pop-and-shoot instant kills with a sniper rifle...

I'm assuming this is why your weapon's maneuverability rating plays a large factor in how quickly your accuracy reaches max when aiming after moving or emerging from cover. Sniper rifles have pretty poor maneuverability, so, naturally, they take a lot longer to steady than an SMG or AR.
