Basic key points[]

Weapons[]

  • Recoil can change with switching firing modes and between only prone and stand stances.
  • Sway change with switching between all stances.

Armor[]

  • Armor items apply their effects on the whole body parts and don’t have their own hitboxes.
  • Clothing equipment can randomly select items from its inventory, to apply incoming damage to them, and lower the hit effects based on the items’ health/properties[specify].

Damage[]

  • Player’s character has 100 shock health points, after this number goes below 26, the character becomes unconscious until the value regenerates to above 50.
  • Damage are not differing based on amount of penetrated character’s model volume, difference from projectile’s speed config values, either the range.[detail needed]
  • Damage are differing based on previously penetrated objects.
  • Hitting different body parts will differ the damage values to apply, the HP damage is applied even if no organ hitboxes are hit.
  • Penetrating hitboxes of a character may cause additional effects.

Notes[]

[CfgAmmo \ .. \ hit] : has no effect on character damage, either penetration ;

[CfgAmmo \ .. \ weight] : defines size of visual impact effects, has no effect on ballistics ;

The testing was limited, so the info is not guaranteed completely corrects, but more likely are.
