Never heard of it. What have you been smoking TC? What a weird concept.

Damage over distance. Say a shotgun does 500 damage. Well it's only 500 damage up to 3 meters. After that distance damage "falls off" to 300 damage. Further 200 etc
Not actual distance or damage but you get the idea.

Was totally kidding! Not sure about tc, but I did think they meant fall damage as in, falling off a cliff and not taking damage or well.. dying. But thanks!

A good way to test the damage fall scale is to get a smg go to an arkfall, and start unloading from far away into the crystal. As you fire start walking closer and you can see your damage scale up. Oh also go into settings and turn on your damage indicator

I was wondering what Fall of Damage means as well. It makes sense that certain weapons do more damage from closer than far.

I have definitely noticed that the Shotguns absolutely enemies from up close while seem to do very little damage from a distance.
