Few questions on sniping:

  1. Is there any reason to use anything but the cheapest available suppressor for a bolt action 762x51? I understand the benefit of a PRS vs WAVEQD for say an MDR or RSASS, but for sniping is it all same-same?

  2. Is there a difference between the basic ring mounts? Apart from the ability to mount a RDS/range finder on some, is there any difference between say the Nightforce 30mm rings and the Lobaev 30mm rings?

Thanks.

yes, sound supression is different over different supressors such as audible range in the game and muzzle velocity can increase therefore requiring less lead on a target.

2) yes, height over bore = different POI

Just another Shoreline rant. I've died 5 times in a row now within 5 minutes every time. Spawns are one big clusterfuck and if you kill whoever you spawn up the ass the battle will just attract the nearest thirsty stack.

Easily threw out 1m of gear trying to get in and do the nostalgia task and I haven't even reached resort yet. I'm so sick of playing Customs or Woods to rack up enough money to kit up for Shoreline only to die upon arrival.

Fuck this map design. Rant over.

I've never really had this issue? Have you tried running at night or just straight up avoiding people

Cheaters don't get banned fast enough, if at all, so more and more people are doing it.

Has anyone seen the new flash ‘hacks’? Maybe they aren’t new. Was playing with a buddy on lighthouse and we were approached by two dudes in the rogue camp who aggressively pushed us inside of the buildings. As soon as they peeked my buddy got flashed like 100 times. Same thing happened to me. Health menu showed I was stunned for 6200 seconds and my buddy just said ‘stunned’. There were like a 100 red blobs on our screens. They voiped us for a bit, wanted our gear, and dipped out. They were ‘testing’. My screen stayed black for the rest of the raid after the flash wore off. Had no way to report except to report his voip. Have medal clips but didnt know if posting links was okay

Today I spawned at RUAF on Woods and Shturman immedietly started shooting at me from Sawmill. That was a bit much.

Logging in to the website or the launcher? I've heard that right-click Run As Administrator on the launcher and then trying to log in allows it to kick out a verification email.

To the scav who helped out and showed me his secret loot spots on Lighthouse, thank you. You've easily added another 100k roubles onto what I normally make there and I'm finding quest items.

First raid of the day ran into a hacker that flash banged my friend and I for 1000 seconds. EOD account too. Great game. Thanks BSG

It’s impossible to stomp out cheaters for good.

Changing IP and emails makes it pretty much impossible.

Only perfect solution would be giving up your own personal privacy by allowing EFT to check what other programs your computer is running.

They've already got your money. And after letting the cheaters hack for a while they'll get banned and BSG will get paid again when the cheaters buy a new account.

Saw Shturman for the first time in a "New" place today. He was prone in a ditch right next to Marked Circle. Not sure if he spawned over there somehow? or maybe he fell back to there because he was being shot at? But both his guards were at sawmill per usual. Pretty disappointed that his AK now only has 5.45PS in it rather than the traditional Igolnik.

Weird shit.

How often do you get the glass hall spawn in factory? Most trash spawn in the game, you have nearly no cover and people from forklifts are on you in seconds. It feels like I get it almost every time I play factory.

Sprint away from forklifts in the direction of Gate 3. No one in forklifts can stop you.

Is lighthouse giga heavy for anyone else's computer from time to time? I have a decent rig, rtx 3060, ryzen 5 3600 etc, but sometimes when I go as pmc into lighthouse everything Freezes and lags out to wazoo.

Cpu and ram both clock to 100% and takes like 10 min of super laggy ganeplay to fix

two things fixed it for me : textures to medium and if that doesnt work try looking up how to change the pagefile size on windows.

What happens is that my pc was running out of memory when loading lighthouse bcause its not well optimized (especially for amd it feels like) and basically it bottlenecks everything and creating bigger pagefile is a diy fix instead of buying more ram
