STALKER has one of the best ballistics in a video game, tell me what other video game has bullets actually ricochet at an angle ?

One of my favourite shooters is a game called War Thunder. In that game, bullets (or shells, considering oftentimes you're firing from a tank) have actual travel time, curve with gravity, are blown by wind (though wind is normally disabled in multiplayer maps), and have slight innate inaccuracy. All of which are taken from historical sources detailing the shell's muzzle velocity, effective range, etc. Pretty standard for sim sshooters, _but..._ Shells also have an armour penetration value. Upon hitting an enemy tank, the game identifies the enemy tank's armour type (cast steel, rolled steel, wood, etc), the angle of impact, the type of shell (solid, balistic capped, composite, sabot, hollow charge, etc), and calculates speed and mass to return a value of whether or not the shell penetrated that tank's armour, all the data again taken from historical sources. And once the shell is _inside_ the enemy tank, the game _again_ calculates what the shell would do. For example, a solid penetrator such as those common on British cannons will often penetrate, cause many steel fragments to enter the inside of the tank due to kinetic energy (each of the hundreds of fragments being raycasted and capable of doing damage to crew and tank interior), and then the shot might just pop out the other side. However, an armour-piercing high explosive shell such as those common on German and Russian vehicles, might enter and cause fragmentation, and _explode_ within the tank, causing immense damage. Meanwhile a thin, high-density sabot such as those common on modern-day vehicles will often simply penetrate, hit whatever it hits inside the tank, and pop out, with little fragmentation. Put short, that game does projectile simulation to an extreme which I've never seen before or since in any other game.

So can Ray casting be in any game not just a shooter or is it the most effective in shooters only?

A realistic game might be about creating more realistic situations rather than having perfect physics behind it. CS:GO has a way of simulating weather conditions : it just makes the line that the bullet will follow be randomly angled away from the line you aim at. then if in real life in a certain situation you would have a 1/3 chance to headshot somebody because of the impredictability of the weather, of the shaking of your hands, and other unknown factors, the situation does not change if you just make it so that you have a 1/3 chance to hit a headshot in the same conditions. meaning the choices you make influence the situation realisticly, making gameplay realistic. (but in cs:go competitive gameplay, and not realistic gameplay, is the point)

The bullet spray in FarCry5 is totally ridiculous lol.. Incredible game overall, but those bullet physics are waaaay f*cked.

I never really cared about games with gun physics unless it’s Battlefield or a super realistic simulator you would find on a PC where Bullet deviation, drop, and travel has affect in the game

Nothing stop us to make a raycast to curve in space to account for gravity and wind.

Ariël Truter (6 months ago)
I prefer new shooters becuase it gives it a more thrilling aspect like say if you hit somebody from across the map in a old shooter where it acts like a laser beam its not nearly as exiting as when you land a shot in modern games that calulates the bullets tegectory

Goldeneye multiplayer was awesome back in the day. Glad I didn’t grow up with online multiplayer. Online gaming’s a helluva drug.

So. We keep using raycast but with new calculations or is it a totally diferent method ... I didn`t get the final idea of that. Very nice video

Well, tomorrow is today. Escape from Tarkov uses real, full bullet physics rendering the bullet. So everything is taken into account. When the full dynamic weather system is implemented, or rather, added back in it will make some people rage. (It's still in Closed Beta)

that was one of the things i liked about the stalker series, you had bullet drop and lower powered rounds would more easily bounce off lesser armor angles and was realistic enough that it was easier to play on the hardest difficulty because noone was a bullet sponge, the bullets did realistic damage

mohammed sadam (1 year ago)
U should check World of tanks its good for this discussion spically that it have many verities like penetration which can drop down by distance and so many things in my opinion thats the most game i have seen pays much attention to that stuff #no_cap_kill_all

I learned something. Thank you. it would be nice to see several of modern game titles that use which type of bullet process. Maybe in another video??
iBrrayts HD (1 year ago)
2:45 im not being rude or anything but you sayed that weather cannot stop a bullet from a kill and when u pull trigger the person you're aiming at is dead and cannot dodge bullets.. But how about in battlefield when ur shooting at long range it's like in real life bullets do not go straight but they go left or right so you need to shoot at perfect time to get that kill. Love ur channel √
in real life i think if u r shooting in direction North to South for example then ur bullet should be going slightly left becouse the whole damn planet is rotating towards East. I'm talking about long sniper shota of course.
