They are magazines, not clips. Also, from GDC footage it looked like it goes the ammo pool-way which is IMO good for PS2. The game is not realistic in most other fashions either, why make the reload system be? It would annoy most people who arnt milsim freaks.

Don't get me wrong I am a huge half-life fan, but I hope we don't follow them too closely or every time we start running our flashlight will run out of battery

The real question in: how much of a magazine will it take to score a kill? half?

If damage is relatively realistic then we can have magazines and not just a reload pool.

If damage is like a feather cannon, then i see no reason to have reloads at all, that guy was annoying... I mean we might as well all have belt fed guns.

Re: How will clips be handeled


btw, he may not know it was an old thread. If you google/search things related to PS1/2 then you sometimes get these threads in the results and at first glance it could easily seem to be from PS2. I made the same mistake quite a few months ago on another site.

Haha, yeah. Clips just partially encase bullets to insert them into a gun, and is ejected after the last shot is fired. think M1 Garand. Magazines is the term we should be using.

This was answered by Higby a while ago, it will be a pool, you will not lose rounds for reloading mid-clip/mag.

Depending on how they setup the guns, there could be both clips and magazines

Fair enough, but I didn't know his flashlight and sprint enhancer ran off the same energy as BREATHING. Keep that flashlight on for a bit then go jump in a pool and let me know how long that lasts
