That is baseicly every weapon in Clear Sky. In SoC you could drop a guy with 6-8 AK round, but in CS you have to empty an entire clip into an enime before the even start bleeding. What the hell is up with that. I installed the ballistic mod that supposeadly increases the power of weapons to a realistic level, but it doesnt do :moon:.
on stalker difficulty i've found it to be annoying yes but you can probably drop about 3/4 bandits from about 150 meters without upgrades (if you use iron sight) and when you upgrade the ak completely with a scope and the weapon upgrades (no game mods) its almost one shot kills if you choose the accuracy upgrades over rate of fire and shoot for the head. my ak is about as accurate as a vinitar now and the bullets go flatter in air. best tip i can give you is use automatic fire, aim for their chest and let the gun travel upwards with recoil until it hits their head. that usually drops em quick in close range but iron sights your best bet
I agree with Wudustan.. I've almost completed the game in STALKER difficulty all the way, and all it really demands is some accuracy (with and without weapon upgrades).. also bearing the weapon's handicap, recoil and bullet gravity in mind. I usually press '0' to switch to single-burst, semi-automatic or full-automatic.. pretty nifty if your weapon recoils like an upset horse ;)
