I was playing a custom map with bots called Mormrange, and practicing sniping, from +100 to +200 meters away, shooting at infantry. Now, when you fight bots, or play on servers, there is a bug for SMG's, where they have zero recoil. I use a ppsh, go +100/150 meters away, and start firing at those tiny dots, (infantry) and I took out 3 guys with one clip! (71 ammo.) Now, +100/150 meters is pretty far, so can you imagine the true power and fury of SMG's in servers?

Amazing how I make a thread about PPSH sniping, then you guys talk about bots, and how horrible RO's multiplayer is. It seems that you guys want to keep the No recoil bug for SMGs, a secret.

On laggy servers, or when you are fighting bots, SMGs have NO RECOIL, so the gun is stiff like a rock. You can shoot an entire clip without the gun moving or swaying. People exploit this, and use it to there advantage, espeically in long ranges.

Look at this video for proof:http://youtube.com/watch?v=QsQ--MQyBo0. The first time the guy is shooting his gun, there is no recoil, which is the bug. After he reloads and shoots, thats the guns, Real recoil.

Wrong!

Even in online play, the bug exists. I managed to snipe a person hundreds of meters away with an SMG in Arad with ease, and with 71 rounds, the thing unleashes hell right out of the barrel!

To burst your bubble.. that bug only happens in practice mode ... :p

No, it happens when framerate drops really low. The recoil for the SMG is dropped and you get an ubergun. For all those playing with older systems who get crappy framerates...the no recoil with low framerate is the only thing that makes the game actually playable LOL
