Default What's up with the bulletproof troops?

I just bought it today. Even with an 8800 GTS 640. The game is gorgeous using xp tweaks. I love this game...

BUT

the fact that the North Korean troops refuse to die is hurting my immersion. Why did they do this? I shot a guy in the face with sniper rifle but he didn't die. His helmet came off. I didn't hit his helmet I shot him square between the eyes. One guy rolled on the ground after jumping over a wall. I put plenty of rounds into him but he didn't die.

And enemies are killing me at long range with shotguns

Makes me feel like I'm using a high powered bb gun.

Is it different on delta?

Hehe...that guy sure is ugly for a "god."

I know some of the enemies are wearing body armor. I've been tryint to do some research to find out what would really happen if you shot someone wearing body armor at long range with an ak47.

How much power does a silencer really take off?

I read one soldier in Iraq got shot by an armor piercing sniper round in the back. He said it felt like someone hit him in the back. He didn't know he was shot.

headshots are kinda useless if they are using a machine gun turret. Aiming the face results in a helmet shot. For the bullet proof guys, they were pretty easy to take down if you aim around the upper chest level. The recoil of your gun will go for their face. You could easily take one of those guys down in a short burst from the SCAR with the assault scope. This was on hard difficulty though, not sure if its the same for delta.

Its the armor. I think its pretty cool. Shooting there head when they have helmets on also just..clips it right off there head. At long range i find that when it hits there chest area..it doesn't do much dmg. Just gotta love Crysis sometimes..the amount of detail they went into this game..

If they wear a helmet you need to shoot in the face. If you are near enough, it works every time (at least for me).

Or you could use incendiary ammo. Two shots to the chest and they are down. Every time I tried it. But this ammo is found only in some NK bases.

i love the nano suit get invisible and walk up to them, grab them then hold them and lastly throw them, then shoot instant death. Or just be invisible and walk close and shoot them instant death....crysis is so ultra violent, one forgets the sick and scary condemned. Man i couldn´t play it at nights gave me the creeps

There is armor right now that can withstand a full magazine of 7.62x39 (AK47) rounds at relatively close range with zero penetration.

Its called Dragon Skin:

Its safe to say that 20 years from now, someone will be wearing it. Its too bad our troops aren't right now.
