Ran into this on Metro Conquest. One shot kill, no sound.

There is a glitch in the game post patch where with a certain set up, all of the m26's pellets have the same attributes as the bullets fired from you main gun. This includes damage, damage drop off and range.


So when done with a g3, each pellet does 34-22 (i think that is min damage of g3) with the same suppression as the g3 rounds. So using a m26 dar, with its tighter cone of fire, means you easily get one hit kills out to 50 m and beyond.

From what I've read, that's why the problem occurs when the M26 dart is attached to a rifle with heavy barrel, because of the longer damage drop off this one provides, thus the 50m one shot kill possibility.

That's why you'll see people running the M26 with that are supposed to work great with HB, namely AK74 and of course G3A3

I tried it out a bit to see what the fuss was about. Frankly I didn't see it to be as deadly as  the frag round was. I got a few one hit kills but not much more than I normally do with headshots in general.I did as well just running buckshot. Certainly didn't seem like a game changer to me.

I agree blimey, it's definitely not as bad as the frag rounds were.

 

I can see how if a whole team was running around with it, it would be annoying. But the frag rounds were abso-fucking-lutely ridiculous

I got one killed a lot last night by one certain guy. Killcam didnt tell me what weapon we was using and rather than the weapon name it just said he "killed" me.  Anyone know what he could have been using?
