i'm not sure i ever tried it in 0.5, but goofin off by myself i realized that you can shoot a pfaust straight up in the air, just to have it come striaght back down and blow your @ss up. kinda cool. in 0.5 i would have thought, even if the faust came back down, it would just dissapear because it would have travelled past it's range. which leads me to my question.... have the ranges been increased on the piat, pfaust 100, and bazooka, or any of the three?? if you haven't killed yourself with a raining panzerfaust, you haven't lived :smokin:

well the bazooka and the panzerfaust get their power from the fire part at the back of the shell...when that runs out it goes very slow. pretty much you can hit anything if you are in a good distance were the fire will keep on going.

Um, no. HEAT is independant of velocity.

these aren't really shells, a bazooka is more like a rocket because it is self propelled, just like you said. but they shouldn't just go slow when they run out of juice. they are fairly aerodynamic, so their drag shouldn't be too bad. that should make their decceleration due to wind resistance fairly low. i don't know the max speeds of these rockets, but i do know that the muzzle velocity on an M72 LAW is 324 MPH. so the much weaker bazooka if it's even half that is still going to have a large amount of energy at the end of the propellant burn to dissapate into the wind, so it shouldn't just die in an instant.

They go the same speed as they do with rocket power. If your good, you can incerase the range of at weapons by about 3 times, just by lobbing the projectile.

makes perfect sense. arch em and they stay in the air longer, therefore increasing their range. it will be interesting to see if people get good at long range with a faust100. i'd personally rather try to expak 'em

faust 100 goes hella far. Just as far as a zook. Your thinking of the pathetic faust 30, where you can spit further.

what about the faust 60? I always wondered why I didn't saw that one but in CoD (that's actually the only faust they have in that game).
