The only players who take use of this extreme headshot damage are hackers and very experienced players. This extreme damage also forces all players to use Nanoweave armor. You don't have this, you stand no chance. A recent example: I've been killed by a Heavy assault using the NS-45 Pilot in less than a second, from full HP while in motion. I tried to be creative, picked a different suit slot, played engineer....but in reality I'm a dumb ***. If you don't pick nonoweave (also heavy assault) and aim at head you lost - this is not very engaging. You can't even counter this. Basically the whole game is about running around, taking points and shooting ppl in the head with little or no strategy....the only strategy is "ok guys lets redeploy to this base".
