chest damage and slugs

Recommended Posts

i know that in this game armor isnt the most common thing , but that doesnt explain why rifle calibers arent 1 shoot kill to the chest,

i am okay that you can survive 1   9mm to the chest, but i think this not the case, or  scavs guns deal less dmg , because i was playing and one time a scav put 2 pmm bullets to my chest and i survived and killed him , but i felt bad ( irl you dont survive 2 direct hits with 9mm to the chest) and other time a scav shoot me with an aks at close range and my chest even after the direct impact had 29hp left

i know that in this game armor isnt the  most common thing , but we can all agree that in cqb with a clean line of sight we should kill the enemies with max 2 bullets to the chest (low caliber pistols,SMGs and maybe some PDWs) and with 1 shoot (ARs, carbines,DMRs, snipers,slugs)

and also about the slugs , they are underpowered and need more than 1 shoot to kill at close range to the chest even without armor or they can be good at CQB but bad at medium ranges i am not sure , but they are weak and need a buff or rework

Depends on what drugs the target is taking, and where the bullet hits. Normally if you get hit by a bullet the trauma incapacitates you, but some people keep running after one or two hits on adrenaline. And then bleed out. No game will probably ever simulate real life 100%, but you have to take into account the multiple factors here. Hell there are stories of people with pocket watches or cellphones who survived with no injuries because the watch/phone took the hit. 

As for body armor, an AR500 plate stops 9mm without breaking a sweat.

Well Tarkov uses many rounds so really u need to know the 9mm round he was using. I would suspect u would find it wasnt a hollowpoint. hollowpoints are great and lethal to soft targets but dont do much against decent armor. FMJ rounds will punch thru some armor but they dont deliver all the energy to the target much more likely that the fmj round puts a small whole thru the target and keep traveling now this will only be lethal if it hits the correct spot on the target and there are plenty of chest area that are harmless. As a matter of fact ive thought about if i ever got shot i would want a high velocity fmj rifle round preferably in my right upper chest inside and below the shoulder joint and not hitting the clavicle... lol weird think to ponder on but that would be a flesh wound most likely and far from lethal.

Pistols suck at stopping people in real life. You can fatally wound someone and have them stay on their feet long enough to kill you right back. Unless the devs want to model internal organs and arteries you're getting an approximation of damage anyway, and if they DID model internal organs and arteries it wouldn't be unheard of for an operator to take a round through the heart and keep fighting for 10-15 seconds minimum. Guns aren't magic wands that instantly incapacitate their targets. If you want an instant stop shoot them in the face, preferably repeatedly just in case the first few hit helmet, visor, etc.
