Sniper Elite 4



Hit Indicater

Posted 3 years ago

 Okay, so another one my favourite franchise's has been tainted by what I think, is without doubt the most annoying feature of modern gaming, hit indicaters, the X that flashes when you shoot someone, I detest them. I understand there useful for multiplayer, but why is every single dev determined to implement them into single player content?. Hitman, Just Cause 3 to name a few, even old games like Call of Juarez have had patches that add them, with no option to switch them off, are gamers request them?. Doesn't anybody in the whole team think, wait a min, maybe some won't like hit markers, lets put a toggle to disable them in the menu, a simple solution. I know some will be saying its not that big a deal, but it is to me and I know im not alone, it ruins any kind of immersion and im hypersensitivie to anything that flashes onscreen. The best way to describe it to people who don't get it is to use movies as an example. Imagine the director decided to go back to all your fav fims and put a X marker onscreen everytime someone got shot to indicate a hit, you think it was lame and annoying right, well its exact same thing for me in videogames. I just find them completely unnecessary and highly distracting. Sorry about the long post but this is a big issue for me as its ruining my enjoyment of what I think is a fantastic game. A simple on\off toggle in the video settings, thats all it takes, please consider this in future content, cheers.

 Yep. Some many of these UI handicaps that are in every game actually hinder a lot of good gameplay tension that could be there. 

I get that in games like COD or Halo or something like that the idea is non stop action and instant gratification. But in a tactical military shooter, NOT KNOWING is a huge part of the suspense that makes it interesting. In a true sniper game, the only things we should know are what we can see with our eyes and ears.

 Same for the bullet trails, scope glint, aim assist (that has no place in PVP period, if you can't snipe stick to cadet single player).
