Weapon messages explained

As there is repeatedly confusion about "weapons" and "hits" and all this, here is a sample, in the hope it helps those who often feel the need to call for a guard. This is a local chat about the "combat", First the message as a whole:

[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: you got hit by a weapon
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: you shot
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: you shot
[02:52] Primus Long Rock 5.5: Direct hit on pacov75 Resident
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: Hit on pacov75 Resident
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: you shot
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: Hit on pacov75 Resident
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: you shot
[02:52] Primus Long Rock 5.5: Direct hit on pacov75 Resident
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: pacov75 Resident is down - click on them for a menu

Now explained in colors:

[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: you got hit by a weapon <-- someone has shot at me
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: you shot <-- i have released a bullet or arrow, the HUD noticed it.
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: you shot <-- i have released a bullet or arrow, the HUD noticed it.
[02:52] Primus Long Rock 5.5: Direct hit on pacov75 Resident <-- this message is pointless, useless, and has no meaning at the Amazon. it is my private weapon HUD, that comes with most weapons. their measurements and judgement are NOT considered here at all.
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: Hit on pacov75 Resident <-- i landed a hit, the Amazon HUD  of the target has acknowledged it. 
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: you shot <-- i have released a bullet or arrow, the HUD noticed it.
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: Hit on pacov75 Resident
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: you shot <-- i have released a bullet or arrow, the HUD noticed it.
[02:52] Primus Long Rock 5.5: Direct hit on pacov75 Resident <-- this message is pointless, useless, and has no meaning at the Amazon. it is my private weapon HUD, that comes with most weapons. their measurements and judgments are NOT considered here at all.
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: pacov75 Resident is down - click on them for a menu

So, before you think something is wrong, check first your log for these:
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: you shot 
If you have no lines of that, your weapon has not been recognized by the Amazon HUD. In this case, do NOT read further, but go to the arena, test your weapon there.

You have this line, then check for that:
[02:52] Amazon River HUD V0.97k beta: Hit on pacov75 Resident 
If you see these lines, your target IS wearing the Amazon HUD too. Otherwise this message woud not appear at all. If you do not see the yellow line (but the green you see!!!) then there are several possible reasons:

  1. Lag? 
  2. your victim maybe wears a shield. Try CTRL ALT T to make invisible obstacles visible. If your victim is in a shield, tell them they are lame losers and leave them alone
  3. your victim does not wear a HUD - small chance, the HUD autoattaches. also on take off. But if indeed they do not wear a HUD, figure out why, we want to know and optimize for such cases too! 


I hope this helps.
