    Bullet Drop

    Does Defiance include Bullet Drop? I'm Specifically curious about sniper weapons, or is strictly laser line targeting?

    While playing the beta I did not notice any decay on my shots. I didn't really use any of the snipers but when it came to the lmg and assault rifles it was pretty laser/cone of fire/ recoil based

    Not that I noticed, they could argue that the EGO automatically accounts for any shot decay. They do have bullet spread and it seems shots from the sniper rifle don't always connect with the head.

    Is it better to out-monster the monster or to be quietly devoured?

    laser straight targeting. Specially sicne there is aim assist aswell - the curve wouldnt make much sense.

    So as long as u got the target in the + and lag doesnt change anything.. thats where the bullet goes.

    I have, in fact, extensively used "sniper" rifles and didn't notice any particular effects. I mean no bullet dropping nor wind affecting the bullet trajectory.

    Only in really long shots, I don't think that in the Beta I saw anything pass 200 yards

    true, but even at 200 yards the drop( depending on weapon) could be the difference between a head shot or not
