So... I've been thinking about this for a while... do you not get rank in FL for doing dmg while blind firing? In normal battles, your blind shot dmg shows up after the battle is over and exp/creds are recalculated based off that final number. But it doesn't seem like FL does that. It seems like you just lose that dmg and it doesn't recalculate the rank at the end of the battle based off the extra dmg... doesn't seem fair... you're still doing dmg, you're still spending credits on ammo... why wouldn't we get the rank/credits/exp?

I was wondering this myself.  I killed a Skorp G with an HE shot and didn't see my bar move.

This sounds good for all the players that sit back and farm snipe damage... this is your punishment. ;)

I'm trying to first attack/defend the six flags that add time to rank up and then go for the five guns.

ALL YOU MUPPETS that don't help to do that... I will make it my Personal Mission to get two flags and go after the three guns on attack or lose them on defense to end your lame, crappy camping tactics. :playing:

you know... doing blind shots isn't just for campers... I would argue that most people that do blind shots are typically more aggressive players. campers don't shoot at bushes, they only shoot at lit up stuff because campers don't take risks

 

and given how huge the FL map is, if you're not shooting from where the fire is coming from regardless of where you are, you are doing it wrong... I find myself at the front of the attack doing blind shots all the time... there is always someone that just got delit at the edge of your render that you just KNOW hasn't moved...

 

this is one silly assumption

yeah... it made me wonder cause the last game I played, I was seriously just one shot from ranking up and I 100% know that I was hitting the skorp parked on top of the castle... but it doesn't move...

I've only played the very first week of FL, and at least back then blind shots did count towards ranks. I clearly remember ending a game being one shot off from the next rank, and upon seeing the post-game stats., I would actually have achieved the next rank thanks to the blind shot(s).

Not sure about blind shots but blind strikes do.

Plenty of games where I have been advancing and I lobbed a blind shot where I thought the target was and got a lucky hit or better yet a kill. Camping / sniping has nothing to do with it.

So "blind shot = camper"?   Silly.

If you watch your rank bar, you can tell if you hit your blind shot or not if it increases. If you don't see it increase, you didn't hit. So, yes, blind shots that hit do count towards rank.
