RNG recoil#9026

Make RNG recoil a thing again. As it stands right now everybody runs around using AK spraying laser beams at everything they see because they’ve got the recoil pattern down to muscle memory or scripts. What’s even the point of having recoil if it can learned to the point of not existing anymore? By having RNG recoil players will actually have to aim each shot instead of just spraying people 200 meters away with perfect grouping. I think this would vastly improve PVP mechanics and break the AK meta.

Completely agree. Some will disagree because they doesn’t want to lose it’s memorized spray pattern (which they easy kill from far far away)

I use macro! Facepunch, you want me (and all the scripters) to stop?
Make it Random recoil. Macro will turn to be useless for everyone.

And PvP will turn to be who have better tatics. Ohhh i’m gonna be soo much happy to see that the Helicopter will be alot more harder to take it down. So far it’s too easy and it leave too much “good” loot for the winner(s).

I wonder if there is a middle ground. Off the top of my head maybe something like first 6 shots stay the same, but the last 24 are RNG. That way we can still be accurate (and confident) with long range bursts but also get the benefits mentioned.

@Jay Fish It wouldn’t solve it because people would do sequence spraying shooting for the only X shoots. It’s easy to memorize the speed of each weapon and for how long a have to hold the mouse button to shoot only the amount of bullets that still in the pattern.
;p

@Plínio José Good point, they would just script the first 6 then.

This extremely affects players who have put in the time and effort to learn gun recoil patterns. It would stop scripting but would lower the skill gap in weapon control.

Why should there be a huge skill gap? This isn’t some generic FPS where the fight only lasts a few minutes and then everybody starts on a level playing field again. This is Rust where the fight lasts an entire month. People shouldn’t have to spend every waking hour memorizing recoil just to have a good time.

I wouldn’t like to Rust become the construction of “Fortnite” as defensive tatics. But if FP give us more items to deploy, more modular crafting; Then it will be alot better.

@Emmett Penney, i agree with @Jesseman1997.
