How sniping headshots should work.

    Under a 100 yards - all bolt action do one shot kills

    Under 175 yards - the middle grade bolt actions do one shot kills

    Under 250 - the slowest firing bolt actions do one shot kills

    Damage and damage drop off should be adjust so that this is the way it works against full nano armor.

    There only two damage levels for bolt actions. tbh I don't mind if full Nanoweave stops headshots, it's just that the damage drop-off for the rifles is too harsh at the moment. Instead of 550 damage at 100m it should be say 600 damage at 200m. That way you'd still be one-shotting NW5 users (requires 625 damage) out to say 140 or 180m depending on damage level.

    I don't think suppressors should effect damage scaling either, they already have enough of a disadvantage due to reduced velocity / increased drop.

    I'm sure suppressors don't reduce damage at all, just velocity. I do agree with you on the damage drop off.

    they reduce damage in a way - they move the min dmg point 25m closer, thus the rifle loses its damage as a function of distance faster. That makes base OHK thresholds against NW levels get reduced by about 20m.
