Anyone know what Bloom does?
Any info on what this stat does?
It's how big your weapon reticle gets while firing. Longer you hold the trigger down the bigger the bloom gets. Reducing the amount of bloom (such as x0.95 is a 5% reduction in bloom) will make your shots closer to middle.
I'm assuming that the Bloom stat determines how fast your crosshairs expand when you hold the trigger down.
It's supposed to simulate Recoil.
I'm not sure and would love a better definition. My assumption was that it applies to shotguns and a lower bloom number is good, because it means your shots will land in a tighter spread and be more likely to have all of them hit the enemies body.
