On phone so not searching forums. I get headshots, floating damage registers 5500+ damage, health and shields of mob do not move, known issue?

For the time being - please remove the gunslinger perk and it should fix your sniper rifle damage.

I don't think it's simply the Gunslinger perk. Heard of too many people having the problem without that perk.

Never used the gunslinger perk just noticed it past 12 hours. Will ask friends to try though.

Regardless of perks I use I notice it on the Bolt Actions. I only have the issue on unaware enemies from behind though, if the enemy is facing my direction or to the side, the crits work fine.

This would explain much.

My crit works fine also, damage registers, mob unaffected. I am not sure if weap type matters as I am only using the bolt action for the 5k kills for the combat pursuit. I will test more tonight.

Happened way before I got Gunslinger, and way before I leveled any sniper weapons.
DM roadblock troops at Bug/Chugg, facing me and doing their best to erase me. I get knockback on them, roll big numbers, and the shield/health bars stay pegged at 100%.

I have to kill 'em with a scoped SAW or repeater.

Lately I just wipe 'em out with my syphon flare gun instead.

Removing the perk did indeed work for me, thanks again.

I'm using my fully modded plague bringer bolt action and I don't have the gunslinger perk equipped. Massive crits, that were kill shots yesterday are doing nothing today. but when I switch out to an un-modded bolt action, I'm fine and dropping anything that moves.

Gunslinger is only part of the problem. Still happens without it. So what are those people supposed to do?
