I've been playing this game for a couple of weeks, and I was wondering if some of you veterans can help me out. I have the blood mod installed, and I often find that I can hit an opposing player several (3-4) times without them dying (I see that I'm hitting him because of the blood mod). They turn around and pop me once or twice and I'm dead. Same thing has happened with tanks. I can put 3 rounds into an opponent's tank. He fires one round and I'm dead. Someone told me that it's probably because of lag, so I set my video down to 1024x768x16 colors, turned down all of the graphics options, etc. I have a 1.6G machine, 256M RAM, GeForce2, and cable modem connection. Any ideas? I've never seen anything like this playing OFP. Thanks!

Well, If you shoot someone in the head, then it's going to take less shots to kill them than if you hit them in the arm. Also, it you hit a tank in the back, it will take less shots to blow it up than if you hit it in the side, or front. Hope that helped.

Yes, it was an anti-tank gun.

Here's another example. Last night I spawn as a GI anti-tank guy. I run around and find a German tank in the Bulge scenario. I run up to it's rear, and put all 4 bazooka rounds into it from point blank range. It doesn't die. Later in the same game, I spawn as a German, and climb into the same type of tank. A GI comes up to me with a bazooka, fires one round at the FRONT of my tank, which should be more heavily armored, and I'm dead. What gives??
