honestly the new damage model is just hitmark galore, stupidly unnalanced weapons, pistol spam.
The old one would reward you for longshots, the MG08 being the only really unbalanced weapon.
Now let me argue to why a stepback would be better (and I'll use arguments from gameplay perspective and realistic one, because honestly its a bad change all around)
(For those who do not know
Gameplay wise :
-The new one doesn't reward longrange shooting
-The amount of unbalanced weapons we have now is astonishing
-Hitmarkers with rifles
-Bugged hitboxes (only sees head, gets hitmarker because arms blocked the shot)
Realism wise :
-Get shot in the foot continues on running (hitmarkers)
-Pistol headshot doesn't kill on long distance
-Damage models that make no sense
TLDR : the old damage model was better gameplay wise, was more realistic and less frustrating
