It was a rage quit moment I'll admit, but this game at times is so damn inconsistent that I don't learn anything at all from it. M4, Resort on Shoreline, just trying to get a task done and of course, hur hur, a 2 man team rocks up. They know I'm there, no way out of my room, I have M995 ammo and a 60 round mag. They nade a few times, I survive.
I hear him push. I walk to the door and out beacuse fuck it, I'm dead anyway.
He's looking away from me, I practically shove my M4 in to his chest at borderline point blank and hold the trigger. He turns and zap, face shots me. In the brief moment, I see he's wearing UNTAR. I'm close enough that no way could I have missed any of my shots. M995 vs fucking UNTAR, and I died. I gave up. I'm done, uninstalled. This shit makes no sense to me any more.
With other games, I can grab a new gun and learn it. Another gun, learn it. Another and another, you find a favourite sure, but the results are the same each time.
In this game, I don't if the armor is still broken or what, but it doesn't matter what I do, what I use, what I mod – I die, and they don't. I spend 70-80% of my raids avoiding fighting completely, beacuse the fear I have is a lack of knowledge due to never knowing if my kills are luck or skill.
Every time I fire at someone I fire in to the sky basically, while they can turn and I die to the first round they fire of a burst almost every time, like everyone somehow has lazers instead of guns, knows exactly where to aim etc.
I can't win. It's not even vaguely fun anymore. Level 3 or 4 faceshield, level 4 or 5 armor, death to jaw or eyes as-near-as-makes-no-difference every time. Every fucking time. Is everyone using head aimbots or something?
Peakers advantage makes no difference for me. Lean or strafe out, open fire, hit him a few times with the best ammo in the game, I get one-tapped. Face again. And again, and again, and again.
I just stay away from major loot areas because why wouldn't I? I'm gonna die to every PMC I see.
I can't be bothered any more.
I don't feel like I've gotten better. Battlefield, CoD? I'm top of the board or near it every time. This game? I'll win maybe 1 in every 10 fights, and not even kidding. Nothing I do works. Scope, no scope, best ammo, worst ammo, meta, not meta, slow, fast, I die in almost every fight. I feel like I have zero control.
Watching streamers, I do the same they do and die every time.
AKs are the shittest guns in the game for me. I mod for low recoil and it's like the gun just jumps 10ft above where I'm aiming. Recoil skill isn't even double figures at level 30.
I just don't know what to do to get better.
Go slow? Why?
All the loot will be gone and I need another fucking graphics cards, or a ledex because huh huh, tasks and hideout are locked behind those things of course and no I can't make cards yet.
I see no improvement of my skill and understanding of this game after on and off with it for 2 years.
I saw a video the other day from Pestily saying unless you're wearing level 5 armor, don't bother wasting your money. You're more likely to live NOT wearing armor and getting hit in the chest than you are wearing it.
Everytime I die, everytime, I learn nothing. Other than "was he hacking?". Because no kill cam, no indication of where he was etc. There's no feedback and without that, you can't grow.
What's the point in filming myself when most deaths are from unknown directions and campers?
Everyone always seems to know exactly where I am, I never get any luck, I never EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER find a sea of bodies with gear like streamers do, EVER and that pisses me off. I go in to every fight with fingers crossed it works this time but nope.
I can't do this any more.
