      I saw that on /msg/ so you're not a tourist, you get a pass
      That said, the old bolt action isn't worth much in many such games unless you're some sort of god of aiming and map reading, and from owning a few I know that's realistic

        If the game has at least semi-realistic ballistics, then ol' bolties tend to be hard-hitters, which makes them incredibly satisfying to use.

        Modded STALKER comes to mind.

          >bolt action is a one shot kill
          It's not a realistic trope at all. Devs want to balance the difficulty of the single shot slow firing weapon to reward skilful play, that's it.

            Getting shot in the head with 7.62 AP is gonna kill you dead pretty well.

              Hah, joke's on you I keep my head half empty to avoid that.
              Seriously though, so will a 5.56 to the head

                And it does in STALKER

                Unless the dude's wearing a helmet, in which case they tend to ricochet off unless you score a direct hit. Which is why 7.62 AP is preferable.

            If we're keeping it vidya, I feel like RS2 did it well. You really need to magdump into people if you don't hit vitals

              I didn't say it was a bad thing. It makes sense from a dev's perspective.
              Do you really go around being senselessly angry at people for things you imagine they said? It must be exhausting.

                No I didn't, that's you reading things into it. The guy was saying it was a realism thing, whereas in fact it's about gameplay. In fact I thought that balancing risk, difficulty and reward is a sign of good design, or at least thoughtful design.

            It is yoy don't walk away from those old .30 like 8mm mauser, 303, 30-06 etc if they hit a limb the amputate it, if they hit your torso, you're going to die unless you are incredibly lucky. Ask anyoe who hunts deer with them

              How do you guys function when you fail at language comprehension so badly?
              The unrealistic part is that a .556 is not a one shot kill across most of the torso/head or that there's something mystical about the bolt action itself that generates more damage.

                Every gun owner figures out at some point in their lives that secretly, the liberals were right all along and gun owners are on aggregate stupider than the rest of the population by a full quartile.

            >difficulty of the single shot
            But the single shot is easier. All you need is one (1) hit and that's it. No need to control recoil, no need to worry about how the enemy reacts after they're first hit. You just get a guaranteed kill if you manage to land a hit on someone.
            Anywhere except CQC close enough to count nose hairs, the single shot is superior.

          A 308 fired from a bolt action does not hit any harder or softer than a 308 fired from an automatic rife

            308 bolties are way more common in games than battle rifles are

                Pretty much any game? Rising Storm 2, Insurgency Sandstorm, your choice of WW2 game. The only game I can think of that only has bolt actions with the occasional straight pull and lever action is Tannenberg.

    I love using the lever actions. There's a lever gun in COD that's chambered in 45-70 Govt and it inexplicably hits harder than a rifle caliber battle rifle. It's great.

      With modern ammo you can make it hit harder but generally I guess it's just balancing

          If you're gonna get a 45-70 I'd highly recommend getting into handloading if you aren't already. It's an excellent cartridge to mess around with loadings. You'll be able to get the most out of it power-wise and be able to make some lower-recoil plinking rounds to have fun with. A lot of 45-70 factory ammo is geared toward hunting and it can be a real shoulder rocker
