Esports Ready? Forget Latency- PUBG has a serious Hit Detection Problem
While we always love to complain about people shooting us behind walls and around corners (justifiably so) and the discussion inevitably reaches the controversial region locking, we have a bigger problem on our hands. PUBG is one of THE most difficult games to get good at because it provides very few opportunities to practice. There is no gun range to practice shooting each weapon, and the looting mechanic means that there is no guarantee you'll end up with the gun you want to improve with. This is why every single shot -especially with a gun like the Kar98k- is the vital practice we need to transcend from minced meat to the king of chicken dinners. There's just one problem. When the hit detection is as atrocious as it is in PUBG we can't get the feedback we need to improve. When we spend so much time and effort to hone our aim, to finally be able to hit the guy running across the field 300m away, just to be shown that our guns are shooting phantom bullets courtesy of bad hit detection: we have a problem.
