There's a one thing bothering me for a while. Shooting while moving should be not as easy as standing.

Actually, it is. When we're talking of distances of less than 10 meters, anyone can run and gun someone down at that range without the use of sights R/L. Actually its more difficult in RO than IRL.

I love it when you get the blank stg bullets when you hipshoot.

You don't. I thought so too in the mod- the problem is the STG has a different aimpoint than the other guns when hipped. You're just missing..

I don't know man, I emptied a whole magazine at a guy, I even moved my barrel around to hit every possible angle and I didn't even nip him. And sometimes I take one shot and I hit a guy in the head...:rolleyes:

The only difference will be that the gun is jostling about, your body is still aware of itself spacially, you can compensate for movement its just going to be harder since your gun is right above, if not being hit, by your moving hip.

Ok my post got sensored. I don't bother posting all the things I said. The thing is that moving while gunning is absolutely absurd. You can make complete change of direction without any delays or change of accuracy. There's no way that in any war people were dancing around each other and spraying.

I really don't think so, and I shoot fairly often.

Throw out everything you have seen from Hollywood.

Look at how all entry/Swat/HRT type teams practice. They are all looking over their sights. Even if a perfect sight picture is not maintained they are at least looking over the weapon at the target. They are not firing from the hip.

Firing while moving is a learned techniwue and not particularly easy. Ideally you will be doing the "Groucho Marx" duck walk where every step rolls from the back to the front of your foot. The goal is to keep your upper torso as steady as possibly while maintainging a constant walking speed. Shots are typically taken at the impact of either the left or right heel.

10 meters is not as easy as one thinks. Try holding a weapon at your hip at the range next time and trying to hit a man sized target at 10 meters. You may be surprised how hard it is without sights and that is standing still.

Second that. I dare anyone to try this.

shooting my rifle from the hip at a target 25 yrds away i was actually very very surprised at how accurate i could be especially after i had shot a couple rounds to give me a feeling for where the rifle was pointing. Now if this was the rifle i had literally slept with for several years etc.... i have a feeling i would be a pretty darn good shot even from the hip... to the point where id never need to shoot a couple rounds to get my bearings.

If anything its harder in ROOST to aim accuratly from the hip.

What I've said is based on previous shooting experience.

The recoil on the SMG's, especially the Russian SMG's is also WAY exaggerated. R/L you could walk your fire onto the target when still or even moving, but in ROOST its not possible because even a burst of 5 bullets will throw the PPSH bullets like half the way off your screen. At short ranges, of course.

Heck I took one of my son's airsoft pistols. With a nice carefull aim I can make a 4in grouping at 9-10 meters. Shoot from the hip and I'm luck to hit the garage...

Did you all run at the same time?? Hipshooting isn't the issue, running at the same time is.

Do it like they taught to soldiers. Put the stock against your hip or in armpit so that the muzzle is aligned with your eyes. If you want to point the weapon in other direction turn the whole body. Should give pretty accurate results. Hipshooting in roost is completely wrong because the weapon is at your side not in front.

When you got hold of that try to run at the same time, all kinds of directions and if you got semiauto rifle, then of course try to shoot as rapidly you can. Then tell results how you managed.
