I bought Bloody Good Time over the weekend, and unusually, I had a few goes of the SP (i.e bots) game before having a crack at the MP game.

In certain rounds, some players are infected with a virus, and they have to pass it on to a healthy player (and flee). As you are infected, you drain away your stars (score).

There was no problem in the SP game, but when I graduated to playing on the internets, I found it can be difficult to pass on the infection to other players. In SP, a quick bump is sufficient, but it's a real pain in MP, multiple hits are usually required. Even when I do successfully pass on the infection, I'm not expecting it to, therefore I often hang around for a split second longer and get the infection back.

3 or 4 games on different servers, and results have been equally patchy - it's killing my scores!

FYI: I have a respectable ADSL connection, and a relatively high-end PC, so I don't think it is a technical issue.

Is there particular technique that I could use to increase the chances of passing on the infection? Does anyone else experience similar issues?

I wonder if this is a hitbox vs model issue? – rlb.usa Nov 8 '10 at 18:50
Your body has to touch theirs AFAIK - I know that the hitbox doesn't always match the model (headshots on BF2, anyone?) but we are talking of entire body to entire body. :) – CJM Nov 10 '10 at 12:48
