Description

I noticed a change was made so the M60 and various other machine guns (in particular) and after firing a set number of rounds would jam permanetly and require a barrel change (e.g for the M60 its 1200 rounds), if this is assumption is correct, seeing i don't completely understand your code, shouldn't it rather;

A) increase the jam amount gradually over time after said limit and then jam more and more frequently to hint at said requirement rather than just instantly jamming up (its not like the barrel is going to instantly melt together) and;

B) jam less frequently after said limit if fired in short bursts (as auttomatic rifleman are trained) as the heat from the barrel would be allowed to dissapate between bursts and be allowed to cool while firing a full belt straight through would slightly increase the chances of jamming

define jamming !

the results of overusage of a beltfed automatic rifle is cookoffs or runaways by heating only.

jams are a failure to eject or feed the cardtridge.

Yet, from what I remember, there was a new readme.txt in on of the repository changes that in there read line written by Rocko that listed 'cook-offs', I don't know if they are going to implement it or not, or if it is even possible, but it was listed.

Updated by kOepi over 3 years ago

an M60 produces cookoffs after appr. 600 rounds in cyclic
it has an MRBS of around 845 rounds ( cleared within minutes ).
an m249 produces cookoffs after appr. 850 rounds in cyclic
it has an MRBS of around 19,000

cookoffs are not implemented atm because of this :

Anyone else had problems after the lattest patch with the M16A2 iron sights jamming after every 3-6 rounds after the first mag?
