    What body part to slash as a runner?

    Feet as it has low armor?

    Legs if he is not wearing heavy armor so it does more damage?

    Hands in the hope he will struggle to hold his gun?

    Groin for pain-crit?

    What do you slash as a runner for the best efficiency when harassing?

    Feet, hands and head always have the same armor (unless snowflake doesn't wear helmet, or that fucking fancy beret that somehow has the same protection as proper helmet).

    Damage on organic bodyparts spreads, so no matter if you hit unarmored head, or unarmored chest, it deals the same damage overall to entire body, but more to the aimed part.

    If its about just harassing then broken skull is way more annoying to deal with than broken hand and broken hand is a bit more annoying than broken foot (unless marine has buckshot shotgun, then feet beats hand).

    Groin has the same armor as chest.

    There isn't really a good, clear answer. Aiming hands, or feet has a chance to delimb, which forces marine to go to surgery, while broken head is more of a pain in the ass, but can't be cut off (if marine wears helmet, if he doesn't, then it has 0 armor so the answer is obvious what to aim). Just the fact that it doesn't force surgery might be beneficial for harassing benos as any worthless puny damage to splinted head might take splint off and this will mean that marine will receive brain and eye damage for just walking and will have to spend years and tons of splits to deal with it.

    Thanks.

    In addition to this, that means aiming for eyes or mouth is the same as aiming for head if he wears an armor right?

    Side question, this is also true for spitter? Spitting at eyes does the same as spitting on chest?

    It is said that aiming eyes and mouth doesn't matter (with and without armor) and just reverts to hitting head.

    Supposedly light armor protects against acid more, so aiming head might do more damage with acid than spitting at chest. But then supposedly heavy armor protects less, so its probably better to spit at chest in that scenario. I could test it on my self-run test CM server, but I'm too lazy.

    hands if you are defending hive, if they can't use their weapon it's almost as good as a kill, feet in this situation dont matter as they don't need to be that fast since marines all grouped up

    feet if attacking in the open, it makes it harder from them to get away since they get slower

    if marines defending and behind cades, head or hands
