The problem is that it's not powerful enough for all those limp dick bitches that need to compensate for the lack of things in their life by completely dominating people in a fantasy world.

I looked at the Hurricane in the editor to check out its collision and it seems fine to me. I don't know much about that stuff though.

You proved my point tonight hardspike. I was using the minigun in the Mino trying to kill you and before I could do that, you killed me with bio goo. Granted my tank was already at 50% health, but the point is, since I have to spell it out, that the minigun on the tank cannot kill a foot soldier before that player can kill a TANK. I know you think that's ok, but I don't.

The minigun can easily kill infantry faster then they can Bio the mino, it's just harder to use.

I've been killed by that minigun plenty of times.

Assuming everyone knows this but in case not: The tracers from the miniguns are not the projectiles. Miniguns are hitscan so if you land the tracers on your target, you are hitting in front of them.

So it's a feature and not a bug?

All this time I've been shooting too short?

I think it's more of a compromise for performance sake. Hitscan is instant hit (there is no travel time for the bullets) but the tracers take time. Speeding up the tracers helps but they are harder to see.

Yeah I finally learned this a year or so ago... all miniguns of any kind. On foot with the minigun you can still get a kill every once in a while with not knowing, but trying to shoot a flyer you'd be way off. Now I just aim like it's my shock rifle then hold down the trigger. Makes a huge difference.

Ignore the tracers!

When I spawn on a locked node with an enemy vehicle in my area, I launch as many grenades I can at them, "Live, Die, Repeat" all my grenades until the enemy is dead, dead, dead, lol.

No wonder I could never take down a flyer when riding shotgun in the mino with the mini-gun. A fully staffed mino with 2 gunners and I still get bitched at cause I wasn't aiming properly. Who knew?

Any chance the tracers and the projectiles could be aligned to be what you would expect?

Sometimes I wonder if it just Lag (regular lag, not Lagzilla), or just slower, older game mechanics.

I've had several mino shots not register, and last night on DJ, it was awful, there was a noticable delay on some shots (multiple tanks), where my shot didn't get off as I clicked and then boom I'm dead--any my pings were unusually better (20-60ms).
