Does Far Cry 3 incorporate bullet drop phenomenon ?

I always aim a bit higher in very long distance sniping, but don't always get a shot. I'm not sure but I don't think bullet drop is present or maybe very little ? How high am I supposed to aim at 200m+ away ?

As far as I am aware the only weapons that are effected by gravity are the bow-and-arrow (plus special arrows) and the projectiles (Molotovs and Grenades) - at least in Xbox version.

In fact, it has been discussed on FC3 forums that the bullets actually disappear after 250 meters anyway, long before bullet drop would occur.

I have been curious about gravity in FC3 myself, but testing with the sniper rifle from quite a distance I can still get headshots by aiming directly at the head, and miss if I aim higher (although it could be that I'm a bad shot too).

Also, I have never noticed any difference in accuracy in different weather conditions, or between day and night (not that I would expect it their either).

It's pretty much just a case of pointing at who you want to kill and pressing the trigger, and you hit them.

Ps3 doesn't have any sign of bullet drop, but maybe on pc. Btw If your using a high power scope ignore the lines used to calculate bullet drop. Personally I think they are for show. It's also a kick in the nads for players expecting some realism.

  • I think if you came to this looking for realism, you should maybe go back to Arma. This has gun vending machines in it. That nobody ever breaks into.
