Real talk though, animals are kind of OP

#1WebstedgePosted 2/9/2013 7:35:08 AM
I have a $3000 SMG. Clearly it cost that much because it is a quality weapon, with bullets that do a ton of damage.

So why is it that when I empty a full clip of it into a charging tiger, not only is it still alive, but able to charge at me with exactly as much speed as if it was fully healthy? But one or two bullets will kill a man, dead? Something seems off.

the tiger is heavier, faster, far more muscular and also stupider (takes longer to realise its dead)

who cares how stupid it is, bullets can pierce through metal objects, if it shreds through its internal organs shouldn't it be dead instantly

No. large animals take longer for their nerves electronic signals to travel across their body to the brain.

kinda like how theres a delay in you shouting to someone 100yards away and them hearing it. granted its a miniscule delay but its enough when an animal is moving at speed.

thats the other point. say a car is moving at 30mph and the front wheels detach somehow. its gonna keep going for a good 50 feet.

same for an animal theres a lot of inertia involved when a bear is running.

You can one shot a bear with a .22 irl if you are an amazing shot with stupid amounts of luck. On the other hand....you could dump a full .45 clip into it with zero skill and get mauled to death. Try head shotting that tiger or bear next time instead of spraying a whole clip into it. Are they o.p? Yes. Does it take a clip? No.

okay, guess that's legit

still, they shouldn't continue going on forever unless you shoot them again

The difference between a hollow tip and a full metal jacket makes a difference also. If the bullet passes through the organs/muscle it will possibly slow it down but it wont die til it bleeds to death (unless of course you sever the spinal cord or.hit the brain/heart. The real damage comes from hollow points which mushroom out and stop inside the body ,, transferring the momentum and force to the body which is the real killer. This would explain why the animals dont die instantly.

I've hit bears, boars, tigers, and buffaloes with my vehicle, head on sometimes at TOP speed... they just keep running. But have been the victim of stupid civilian drivers many times! Yet I'm not allowed to kill them huh...

As for the nerve thing someone else posted... lol, was that serious? When something is dead, it's dead. The remaining nerve signals would just cause the body to twitch and convulse (if anything), not continue to maul something as if nothing happened. Especially when shooting a charging tiger in the head!

Forget larger animals, if you cut the head off a chicken it'll run around for a bit before it dies.

They do maybe take a few more bullets than they would IRL but it's not that fantastical.
