Range/Accuracy and Infantry

Postby Kasrkin229 » Wed 11 Feb 2015 07:43

Hey, just had kinda of a quick question and i haven't been able to find any information on the matter.


I know that with tanks, the closer the target is to the shooter the higher accuracy the shooter has by X percentage.


Now the question i'm thinking, does the same thing affect Infantry with their Rifles, AT weapons and MG's ?

Yes.
If there's two kinds of players, those that like challenges and those that want a fair game, pubstomps should make everyone happy.

Alright,

Was just wondering because it seems that even at point blank range with AT-4's on Hardened Shock troops (not panicked or anything) Miss far more often than they should.

CTH is displayed as a percentage at the bottom of the screen in real time.

I've never actually see the % chance to hit displayed. Am i missing something? 800+ hours in wargame and i've never heard of that,

Well the thing is the accuracy bonus is a percentage based on the base accuracy of your weapon. The AT4 is not that accurate to start out, and it only have 4 range increments (it's impossible to shoot at 0 meters), while tank guns at point blank have 9-11 range increments of accuracy improvement.

Going by the spreadsheet, AT4 at <100 meters with a hardened shooter should have an accuracy of something like 60%. But if your men are shooting from 100 meters, they've probably already been engaged and worried.

Pay attention to the CTH when using ATGMs and you'll rage harder than XCOM sometimes.
