Messed up Guns
The game developers obviously have no knowledge at all of firearms. Shotguns are shown as having less range than revolvers or pistols. Actually a shotgun firing solid slugs would have more effective range than any handgun. The pistols used are obviously .45 ACP's, a good weapon, but the submachineguns are also obviously Thompsons, using the same ammo. When I cut loose on a copper five feet away and emptied half a clip at him (15 shots) and missed with all 15 I laughed till I cried. It's like turning a garden hose on your lawn and somehow missing. The lawn. I've had enemies 100 feet away peg me with revolvers, while my one of a kind shotgun couldn't even reach them. The revolvers of the period were almost exclusively .38 specials, whose bullets have been known to bounce off car windshields.
I wish some modder would come out with a mod making the weapons halfway realistic.

Half a magazine, not a clip. For someone talking about the realism of firearms, you need to get the nomenclature right.

Its a game. And it needs balance. I understand the frustration, but there's a multitude of games in todays gaming that would have severe issues if we applied real world physics to them

Is this a simulation?
