Well, thats a good riddle, right? If one would have to guess, bullet vs face, bullet always wins, right? no comebacks, no med packs, no nothing: bullet, face, dead. No incap, DEAD, like in "id like to shoot back at you but alas i have a bullet in my head so take no offense but ill lie here waiting for the next round as if i am dead"

I have a personal experience of 4 out of ten headshots that ends in results that differ from death, as in "nothing at all" (more often than one can imagine, but it's lag, right?), incap, and incap again even if you shoot the incapped in the head once more, and sometimes twice. And i am not talking about a 500 miles out snipe headshot in airfield, but packed action in Alley, or the galleries in pipeline.

This cant be right. And it needs to be fixed. Yes i know that AA4 is about to come, but god knows when, i need to vent and shake my fists against the sky.

how far were you, and was your weapon zeroed properly?

The bullet hits the face. you know where you hit, when you hit, right? there is some sort of... animation, something that happens, like dust or a recoil, something that makes you recognize wheter you hit the head or the foot or miss altogether. So, yeah head. And it is not much a matter of how far i were. I am at different distances, sometimes i snipe, sometimes im at a mid range, sometimes i am at close range, sometimes i want to kill and incapacitated enemy a few meters from me.

4 times out to 10 i need more than a headshot to take an enemy down (i know i got him, right? see above), and when it happens half the time the NME is not dead but incapped, with a bullet (or even a few) deep in the face, a bud of his passes by, gives him a OPA (or maybe a splint) and he's back on feet again.

6 times out of 10, the bullet actually went somewhere else.

now, it seems to me that a theory is emerging in my head, though it seems silly.

silly, because it's perhaps more complicated than it should be. allow me to reiterate:

Zeno's paradox. suppose every time you get closer to a target, the bullet goes as far as its range. so, if you are practically at the tangent of the spot, those bullets may still miss the target.

that is, assuming none of this occurs with factors such as latency with your machine, monitor, connection, the server, and that you don't actually get your rifle jammed at some point.

There is a server side setting that when enabled, will only let the person being headshot to be incapped only.

While it is true to say that a headshot almost always results in death A bullet to the head does not always mean 100% certain death.
I have had myself and treated others in game who have had gunshot wounds to the head and are still on there feet, glancing hits only causing surface wounds or hit in a non leathal place could be the explanation.

In real life many people survive gunshot wounds to the head, even with a bullet lodged in the brain,
I guess in the name of realisum thats why its ingame also.
