Slr vs level helmet and level 3 vest

Recommended Posts

Hey all, mediocre player here trying to get good. I was in a top 8 or so situation and just equipped a level 3 helmet and level 3 vest. I had full health and a painkiller in my veins ;). I moved up in the circle and took position behind a rock. I went prone and look around me and didn’t see anything. Next thing I know I got 2 pieced with a slr while I was prone and it said headshot. Considering all this how could it be a 2 shot kill? By the most upsurd luck in the world they avoided a level 3 helmet and vest? I have it uploaded to Xbox live, how can I share?

It's just the game at this point un time. I've been 1 tapped in the head with sks and died full health no damage to helmet. Work in progress I suppose.

Shot in the face maybe? 

And no helmet stops the damage they just lessen it. I think a level 3 reduces the damage by 50% if 1 bullet downs you without a helmet then it should be 2 headshots with the helmet

According to https://pubg.gamepedia.com/Weapon_Stats_for_PLAYERUNKNOWN's_BATTLEGROUNDS the SLR does 61.3 damage to a player being headshot wearing a lvl 3 helmet. Being headshot twice = death.

^^ This is the very unfortunate state of this game and hopefully they are serious about fixing it! It would be great if you could rely on the game to do what it is supposed to do...

This does not seem accurate considering it shows that the cross bow is a one hit kill if the player has on all lvl. 3 gear...

I thought the crossbow always did one shot on the head, no matter the helmet?

Really, why would that be the case? Pretty sure a arrow would not go through a lvl. 3, looks like a ballistic helm!

1 shot

The crossbow is a short to medium ranged weapon. It does very high damage, with a shot to the torso capable of killing an unarmored enemy in one shot and headshots being instant kills, even through Spetsnaz helmets.

I’d say your first mistake was going prone. 

 

Shhhh don’t tell everyone lol. Too many easy kills against all the prone goers.

Most people don't know this because they never use it, i love the weapon, It's amazing to headshot people with it.

id recommend using a 3x or 4x and aim just a smidge low, ive got a squad wipe at water treatment before with a crossbow, people dont know what to due when they cant pin where the shots are coming from. knocked the first guy than his buddy went to revive, repeat, rinse, walk away.

Interesting. I need to spend some time playing with the crossbow. I've killed a few people with it shortly after landing but CQC, then I drop it for something else. Thanks for the info

I’ve messed with it a few times, got a nice 60-75m shot on a guy running across a field one day. I will say it was a lucky shot for sure. 

 

Plenty of kills with it up close though
