So enemy head only showing. Bang right between eyes. Damage just a few points. WTH?

    They used to say that was because you hit a hand or something, but they were supposed to have fixed that so you get damage for the larger of the multipliers.

    But I've definently noticed that one.

    If it's not a sniper rifle chances are you're going to need more then one headshot to kill someone...

    I'm going with poor aim, because without video to assess that's frankly the most likely cause

    A head shot is a head shot when it hits me.

    what huh? m1911 has min damage of less than 20... so why do I constantly get killed by one pistol shot?

    I apologise for actually knowing some stuff such as damage models that enables me to conclude that two headshots aren't always a kill using an m1911. in fact the critical range were this starts to happen is rather small.
    I guess I'll have to forget the facts and just argue based on my feelings. would you appreciate that?

    also you don't get one shot... maybe it feels like you do due to poor hit indication or damage stacking but your are not actually getting one-shot (unless you are on low health or getting headshoted in cqb with a revolver of course)

    There's no point Berg as they just want to moan. I even tried to suggest that they record video so they have something to back up their claims and their first response was "don't know how but I know what I see" and when I pointed out that they'd been told how to use the DVR in the past, and re-supplied the Sony FAQ link, their response changed to "can't be bothered".

    a headshot is a headshot when it kills. at least that's been my experience. it may have changed in recent updates but AFAIK assignments only count headshot that kill

    OK, so I know this is only a game and not real life, but shouldn't being shot in the face/head kill you instantly?
    Where "in the real world" would that not be the case? Where or what is the logic in it NOT doing so.
    On the crosshair feedback the colour changes when a headshot is made, hence a positive headshot is recorded
    yet, the enemy does not always 'die' but takes some 'damage' - ludicrous IMO.
    Understandably, a body-shot may hit 'armour' or not directlty kill someone, but when you shoot someone
    IN THE FACE they should 'die', right? Or am I on a different planet to anyone else?
