At OBH6 I elected to use no face protection due to the heavy humidity index
during the OP. While I was positioned at the wall near Peggaces bridge I was
shot in the face by an opposing player at a distance of less than 8 feet. I know
stuff happens and I was the first one to tell the guy that when he apologized
for the face shot.
The hit area immediately swelled up and significant blood loss was present.
A cost medic (who was an actual EMT in real life) cleaned me up and after my
bleed out, I left for the FOB. Days later after the swelling had gone down and the
injury had closed, I discovered I had a 6mm BB under my skin.
So long story short - I think the no MED rule with AEGs shooting upwards to 400fps
has shown that the BB can penetrate unprotected skin under the 20 ft range and
that AMS staff should rethink this rule.
I am in favor of the 20 ft MED and re-allow automatic fire from AEGs that is pretty
much the rule with the rest of the world.
...anybody else's thought here?
