    Consider that the entire industry is fake... Fortnite and others are giving out "eliminations" at their discretion... letting you get to the end (win the match) when the game decides... you try and try and try and the game kills you by giving your opponent a better hit percentage, gun types, health, shields and making you miss (lower hit percentage), worse guns, health, shields.. .. ultimately you are very frustrated at which time the computer increases your hit percentage giving you the serotonin/dopamine rush because of the elimination/win/success which then fits their paradigm of addiction.... this is what the video game is doing to the kids these days.... not very noble or moral..... they probably just tone it down for the streamers....

    It sounds epically conservative and christian

    What you are saying is that hitreg is broken with some weapons, you sometimes are unlucky etc. and everyone knows that, hitreg is bullshit especially with shotguns but its not because the game gives you worse hit percentage, its primarily because projectile weapons (sniper, rocket launcher, etc.) give the servers enough time to register the hit/kill and thats why hit percentage is higher (except the sniper, that one would be better off being hitscan).

    Meanwhile, hitscan weapons (shotguns, assault rifles, etc) are almost instant, which might not give the servers enough time to register all the bullets and causes you to miss or get a bodyshot (im talking to you, AWP, get your sh*t together)

    When finding weapons, the placement is very random, so you might get worse weapons than others :)

    Oh and also, there’s not much difference between a streamer’s game and a normal game, they just delay the stream a bit so they aren’t stream sniped
