PUBG Player Forgets Bullets Travel But Gets A Kill Anyway
In a video posted on Reddit, a PUBG player forgets bullets travel but gets a kill anyway. The video shows the player shooting at another player running in the distance. He looks as though he is aiming properly but gets a kill on the man running behind him.
This is because PUBG, like many other games, has bullet travel time. Between the time that he fires and the time it reaches the man running in the distance, it is no longer aimed correctly. That's the reason players have to shoot in front of the enemy when they are a great distance away.
It's mostly luck that allowed this player to get a kill. If he had been aiming at the person in the back or if only one person had been running across his line of sight, he probably wouldn't have been able to kill them.
Bullet travel time is one of the main reasons that getting a kill 649 meters away on a moving target is so impressive. It's even more impressive to get a kill from a great distance when using a thrown item like a molotov. Generally, the more forces a player has to contend with, like gravity, travel time, and movement, the more impressive the feat. But sometimes luck is all you need.
