The new patch brought a quiet but very significant buff to the 9x19 caliber. The damage falloff at 100 meters was changed from 42% to 2.87%. What this means for the weapons:
Game version: 050811
- SMGS and pistols retain almost all of their damage at all practical distances (there was minimal falloff even at 200 meters)
- In raw damage potential SMGS now remain viable next to rifle assault rifle calibers. However accuracy and armor penetration are still inferior.
- Updates to the new armor penetration is still pending, we are working our way through the levels to acquire all armor and weapon types. The sheets will be updated as soon as we test it.
