Too many cheats.
As the title suggests, there's too many cheats on this game. I've been playing RO2/RS on-and-off since release and I always end up walking away from it because it's absolutely no fun whatsoever emptying an entire clip into an enemy only for them to one-hit kill you (I play realism so that latter point is to be expected).

It's either hackers or the game's hit detection is screwed up.

what kind of clip? one hit kill may be a rifle round, anti material rifle, or a head shot

Or they could just be good players

I played this game for more than 500 hours and have not noticed a lot cheaters.
But i think i know what you mean... at release the game used serverside hitdetection but
in one of the first patches Tripwire integrated clientside hitdetection!!! So problem is solved ;D

you probably missed. 1 bullet kills are normal. this game has great anti cheat systems

Cheaters are expected now, but your problem has nothing to do with it.

I've lived in 4 places in my life. Got over 100h on gameplay (realism allways). I've never found a cheater or hitbox lag, or anything weird with the latency except for covering and jumping over obstacles. The only bad thing I've noticed is the hitbox on objects such as trees - Fireing a mortar shell through a dead tree without hitting it makes the shell explode. This is also a disadvantage to commanders who orders artillery on the enemy. Some shells explode before they hit the ground.

It's not cheating if the enemy aims down their sights while you panic* hip-fire.

Very few actual cheats in this game, your opinion is misinformed

I don't think it's cheaters I have times were hits just don't register it doesn't happen often but annoying when it does.

you(ping 100) shoot sends information to server
enemy(ping 40) shoot sends information to server

server decides you die because it's processed enemy's hit detection first and cancelled yours even though on your client side it looks like a hit. Unfortunally until we can get games to register at 0MS or as close too there will always be this little problem and some games are better at mitigating it than others but this comes down to proper clean coding.

sounds like you think the bots are cheating, which they do but that's just the way the game seems to work... human cheats - I've only seen two personally and they weren't recently.

I've had this game since beta and only encountered one confirmed cheater who was using an aimbot.... 5 seconds after that he was banned by the admin.

The amount of cheaters in this game are very minor.

One well placed shot in the chest or head by any weapon in the game (including pistols) will kill. You can hit a target several times in the legs & arms with spray & pray PPSH yet he just needs to place one bullet in your chest or skull with his P38 and you're done.

Ahuh...yeah...assumption on your part. The last time this happened to me I was crouched, aiming down my sights at a guy who was running straight towards me from a couple of meters away. Entire clip into his upper body/head, apparently no damage taking and he was able to melee me to death.

Oh, and the situation I was in before that when I popped my head around corner, unloaded a clip into a guy literally right in front of me on the other side. No apparent damage taken, I start to go behind cover to reload and get killed by him.

What rank do these players have?

are they ranked zero in the kill feed?

Do they have pings of Zero?

What are their names?

My guess is that you were killed by bots. When only a few feet away, they will try and melee you rather than shoot.

You may also notice that they can seem to headshot you in a fraction of a second from turning towards you or appear to not have fully aimed at you before you died

This is because the bots are living directly on the server and thus, have a ping of zero. This means that due to your ping, he appears to be looking away from you, but to the bot, you're a fraction of a second (or more) behind in the information being displayed and due to ping and client side hit detection, etc. While he looks to be still lining up towards you, from his perspective, he already lined up, aimed and shot you before you even knew what happened.

Happens to me often.

If I didn't already know what to look for, I too would assume it was another player hacking.

In the server browser, double check the server you want to join and ensure it doesn't have bots enabled & are all human.... I bet you will notice an improvement in your experience.

Do not listen to OP, he is just bad.

The only cheaters in this game that arent gonna get banned is the bots.

The end.

Maybe your ping is way too high so it only looks like you're hitting them
