So it turns out I can't count.
« on: September 06, 2011, 03:29 »

I'm currently trying out the Max Carnage challenge on HNTR. For a while now I've been carting around a double shotgun on the basis that it ought to kill most things in one shot at point blank. Well, I'm in Hell's Armoury, and I just shot an Arachnotron at point blank and didn't kill it. What am I doing wrong with my math here, folks?

8 x maxed d3's = 24
24 - 10% = 21.6 rounded to 22
22 x 3 shots = 66
2 armour, doubled, times 3 = 12
66 - 12 = 54

Since they have 50 hitpoints, and he's still standing there making me really, really glad I have Juggler right now, I can only infer that damage isn't calculated the way I thought it was. Where am I screwing this up, folks?

Also Intuition is a bit too good, but that's another story.

Double shotguns and their relatives are bugged and only fire 2 shots (but would fire 3 if they held that many)

Welp.

That would explain it, yes. Thanks.

Not only that, I think the second shot has (much) higher drop-off because the first deals knockback before the second hits.

Not 100% sure, though.
