When I'm shooting rapidly, I can see that the beams hit the enemy but nothing happens. They don't get hurt, not even 0 damage is displayed. I don't know if the game is designed to do so or if this is a bug, so could you tell me what's the matter. Thanks (and sorry my bad english)
Was this during a city siege? I've notied that in some siege scenes it's almost impossible to get a registered hit due to the placing of some individuals so you have to melee them
the problem is with clipping and projectile speeds. sometimes if the enemy is too close and the muzzle of your weapon protrudes out the back of his head or other area, the game won't register it as a hit, since the bullet didn't actually hit the target, but left the muzzle of the weapon while it was on the other side of the target.
other times i have noticed that sometimes when the game is a little laggy the projectile will travel so fast that it simply passes through the target before before the game has time to register the hit. in this case, simply zoom in while aiming, and if that doesn't work, move a few feet to right or left and try again.
the second case is in my experience, more common in mods that alter the speeds of projectiles, or add guns to the game.
