Literally tested myself and get hit without the actual weapon even hitting me, found this very annoying especially when playing a less defensive player so I mean maybe lowering it where it actually hits the player.
did you max out your FOV?
no I run it at 80, but when I was down (third person view) I could see torches not even close to be hitting me and taking damage.
Latencies, desyncs etc. You can’t fix it. Some games it’s better, others it’s worse.
