So I've been trying to research into conserving my ammo better in PvE. But with the games' current state I find it utterly ineffective. However I have gathered some data. For normal difficulty at least. For the standard bolter and plasma gun. It takes 5 bolter rounds to down a tyranid or two quick plasma shots. Or two bursts of three rounds from a bolter in burst mode. That extra shot comes into play a lot. Why? Because the time it takes for a tyranid to die after getting fatally shot is disconcerting. The questions of "Is it dead?" "Did I miss?" Come quickly to play and an extra shot is wasted to check. Or the lag will strike and well... It doesn't die. Often enough you also miss a perfect shot... because lag. This is terribly unreliable. I'm not a perfect marksman by any means but I should hit more often than this. And this makes the game far less enjoyable. I try to place my shots but the game won't let me play that way. I have to expend far more ammo that i generally just set and forget my plasma or bolter on auto. Spray away! It gets more kills than actually aiming and trying! I would much like to see this fixed. Tyranids dying when they are hit by a fatal shot instead of moments later and that lag is reduced so that I'm not feeling like my hit chance is 50/50 at best, on a shot that should be effectively guaranteed. I mean how am I supposed to miss a point blank shot? Seriously.
