[Approved] Fixed Weapon Spreads

[Approved] Fixed Weapon Spreads

Postby Johnny Wise » August 3rd, 2016, 3:49 am

Dulzuro and I decided to pitch this idea. Since Doc will never allow for random crits to be turned off, we at least hoped that random weapon spread could be turned off, as we no longer need to be concerned about staying on quickplay. Fixed weapon spreads promote good aim, and may help to alleviate some of the poor hit registration issues that people always complain about.

My only concern is that it might hurt server population. No crits servers (as much as I hate this) tend to not be populated much, the same might happen here. In lieu of the latest update I'm not sure

The reason that no crits servers tend not to be populated is that most of them just don't get the word out that they exist. To my knowledge, only the more prominent ones, like Star_'s and LSRainbow's servers are advertised, and none of them were available on quickplay while that existed, so it is hard to get a player base unless you knew someone who played competitive. I think fixed weapon spreads are a subtle enough change where most people won't notice it, and it's beneficial to players of all experience levels.

I never really bothered with this, what exactly does it mean? Weapons with Spread always fire in a fixed pattern or something? :o

I believe he means such weapons as spy pistol, the regular spam pistol... SMG... Any weapon besides heavy (I think) with a spread.

Unless he's referring to something really broken.

No, like, what makes it fixed? Do the bullets always follow a certain pattern? I know what it would affect, but I don't know what that effect *is*. :o

Using shotgun as an example
It would fire in a 3x3 pattern, and always fire like that

I'm fairly certain that less people know what spread does than those who don't. Based on what I've found in the past, damage spread is +/-10% and weapon spread only effects shotguns, scatters and shortstop.

Either way I'll go ahead and set both on Dustbowl for the next restart.
