I’m not sure if anyone else has ran into this issue, but I sure as hell run into this a lot and I’d like to get to the bottom of this @Macman or @SlabOMeat. Whenever I play Val, I am constantly getting this feeling like my shots are missing when they shouldn’t be. Very few of you have seen my 258 tranq duration (pre-tranq buff) video but I sure as hell know how to shoot even with this game’s really ludicrous mouse settings/zoom sensitivity options. Also want to note that Val still isn’t viable against a serious monster.
To get to the point… I’m missing tranq shots that I swear should be landing when I’m scoped. Here is a quick video featuring the said problem.
Even when you slow it down… It’s hard to tell if I missed or not. Well, I decided to use VLC’s frame by frame feature, and noticed that my first shot missed (even with the recoil).
However, the second shot I take…
I didn’t move my mouse in such an erratic motion to warrant my reticle being that far off when I clicked. Even such, it looks like the center is still covering over a tendril over the monster’s head. I could be wrong on that… but why would there be such an erratic recoil feature like this especially when I’m not even quickly firing. These are also suppose to be extremely professional/famous hunters so why can’t we control a simple tranq-firing gun from recoiling out of control, if that is the case.
After firing, my reticle returns to the exact spot it was before. With minor mouse movement. I even get out of ironsights because I figured I landed it, but I didn’t switch weapons because I’ve ran into this issue many times before and would screw myself with the long reload time of the tranq gun because somehow it missed. Quickly realizing my shots didn’t register… I take my third and final shot.

Again, minimal mouse movement to not warrant this supposed reticle movement. As you can see in the image… my reticle has gone off to fucking Narnia. Yet somehow, this one lands. Unfortunately the image isn’t too great (720p stretched to 1080p monitor) so I either suspect that my reticle is aiming at some part of the Kraken’s wings… or it registered my shot from where I was aiming from the frame before.
So what’s going on here… TRS? Is there some registration(Goliath missing…) problems in the game or is there an annoying/dumb recoil feature that we are never informed of since it happens so quickly that we don’t notice our shit is bouncing like some kid’s party castle.
