Yes. Not severe, but it is there.

No, it's "realistic" bulletdrop.

Re: bulletdrop


In real life there isn't really bullet drop until like 200 meters away or more. Will people be sniping from that far?

Re: bulletdrop


A 5.56x45 NATO round fired from an M16 drops around a foot at 200m and around 25" at 300m. I'd say PS bullet drop is a bit exaggerated based on that. But, it has to be scaled since the ranges that most combat will happen in is a lot closer than that would happen in real gun fights.

So yes, there is scaled realistic bullet drop in PS2.

(Someone correct me if I’m wrong here)

But I THINK only the Vanu weapons won’t have bullet drop. I’m sure that was mentioned at E3.

Normally no bullet drop for Vanu weapons since they don't use bullet. But as a counter part they will be less powerful when the distance is bigger : they are light based, and light fades away after a while.

Correct - I mentioned this in another thread but Higby demoed the bullet drop for Jennyboo and I when were in SD by using debug tools. So it's definitely there and kicking

If we're going with real life, it would depend on the rifle and ammunition. If we're thinking, like, an AR-15 its gonna go up aft 150m then start dropping.

In real life, a bullet fired with the barrel parallel to the ground (tangent actually) will start dropping ALMOST immediately. There are subtle dynamics, but in essence the bullet immediately begins to fall.

In a normal situation, you're going to be sighting something through some sort of optic or iron sight. In this case, there is a slight up-tilt on the barrel when compared with the sight line which results in a point at which the bullet will rise ABOVE the sight line about 5-10cm and then fall back through the sight line again. On a rifle (mach 1.5-2.0) this drop will start around 300m or so. It really depends upon where the sights are aligned.

When fired parallel to the ground a bullet fired drops just as fast as a bullet simply dropped to the ground at the same height and same time. Mythbusters ftw

Physics 101 for the win. This is all stuff some simple Newtonian physics would cover, and probably even see used in textbook examples!
