“Players said (broadly) that shooting felt reliable and consistent the vast majority of the time," they added. "However, there was also clear room for improvement."

“They highlighted these opportunities for improving reliability in combat: increasing hitbox clarity, improving readability and predictability of states of movement inaccuracy, and minimizing the difference in gameplay feel across different ping conditions.”
