There’s really no point in not using the KP 31. Except for the cool factor other guns are too rare and expensive for how much they benefit you, not much. Scopes are cool but barely increase your ability to deal damage as they only give you like 3x mag in the best of circumstances. What’s the point in trying to take a scoped weapon when you could honestly snipe just as effectively with the cheap starter gun. Until you get plans for a weapon ammo is extremely rare, and it’s not like having rare ammo increases your Killing ability as all weapons take about the same shots to kill. I like the headshot is an instakill, but when you’re using the starter shotgun (useless) you literally have to hit a headshot every encounter or you’re screwed (it takes three shots to kill but you’re using an over/under lmao and the reload is long as fuck) it’s literally pointless not to use the KP31 because even if you do bring out a scoped weapon the weather is rarely ever clear enough for you to make it useful. So you end up at the mercy of everyone else using their KP31’s at close range and spraying you down with their 72 round magazine. Bad enough that several weapons in game are just straight up useless (SKS with a fire rate worse than the Mosin but you still have a 6 shots to kill?). It seems like the game wants to punish you for doing well or playing smart at every turn (terrible exit locations some are impossible to reach or even find the entrance too, and when you do make it you have so little cover from campers it’s not even worth it). Especially with the 3 kill mark, the permanent mark on players who snatched the airdrop, the airdrop circle etc. the meta of the game is to just camp and with visibility being almost always terrible, scopes being worthless, no bino etc. what’s an agressive player supposed to do other than get continually ambushed until he’s back to, guess what, using the KP31 and dinking other players as soon as they try exit. Some of my best games have been with the KP31 and under 800 m traveled. I mean the airdrop location is obvious from the beginning of the match (why not make it only appear after the airdrop has actually landed or to attentive players who are watching for the plane and the parachute) so from there you locate the obvious exit points and just camp. I get that everything on the maps is static and that the maps are all hand designed, they really are good maps I enjoy playing on them, but there should be several different exit configurations and they should rotate between maps so you never get the same exit setups between encounters, airdrops shouldn’t been known until it touches the ground or until you see, hear the plane or the parachute, players who get the airdrop should be marked either for a limited time or the time between their icon appearing on the map should be drastically increased. Or another option would be that players who get the airdrop don’t appear on the map unless they’re spotted by an enemy player, giving players a stealthy option as well. Exits shouldn’t be biased towards campers, if you give players terrain to camp behind you should give players trying to exit plenty of terrain to hide behind as well, scopes need to be have an increase in magnification, other modifications such as grips, bipeds etc. should increase the stability of the weapon platform. I have the HBAR but the gun sways so bad that the bipod actually clips into the ground lol. I should be able to actually use the bipod to stabilize my gun, and I should be able to bipod on ledges or on window seals. Modifying your weapons with your own accessories and decals or paint jobs should be added as well. Damage outputs for all guns should be increased, shotguns should be deadly in close quarters, 1-2 shot kills, snipers should be 2-3 shot kills at range, everything else should be 4-5 shots to kill. Either that or just accurately portray gun shot wounds in game (personal favorite). I.E. non-fatal gunshots lead to bleeding that you must stem with bandages (hey guess that makes them useful now) fatal gunshots could be an instant or near instant kill. I mean ya that would make the game much more difficult but it would also make the game much more rewarding. Having to actually be careful and take your time checking your corners and watching those vantage points. Slowing down the game experience IS NOT a bad thing, if I wanted to play PUBG I’d just play PUBG if I wanted a fast run and gun under 10 min matches I’d play COD or battlefield. For a game that claims to be a Escape from Tarkov and PUBG baby it’s slacking on the hardcore aspects. I can count on one hand the number of satisfying shootouts that I’ve had. When you die you shouldn’t be mad at the game for screwing you over you should be mad at yourself for not playing well enough. This is something PUBG managed to get down, there’s not much in the game that you can actually point at and say “this is an exploitative or biased feature,” there’s much you can point at in Vigor.
