What are the chances?

So a muffalo went mad and attacked a tribal caravan that was in my area, it attacked one guy with level 0 shooting and a Great Bow (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1143083576). AND HE ONE SHOT THE FRICKING MUFFALO! All that the muffalo received was a cut in the head, a crack in the skull and it's brain destroyed (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1143085633), can someone please tell me the chances of this happening because I am amazed!

I once had the inverse happen, where a prisoner broke free, grabbed a weapon from my armory, and attacked a muffalo, only for the muffalo to one-shot him with a headbutt.  I imagine the odds are similar!


Last time I checked, the de-bug tools that you can turn on in the options menu has an option to list body part hit chances.

From what I remember, brains are around 0.1% to 1.0% chance to hit.
While hitting a muffalo with great bow at point blank range, while slightly injured is probably at least 10% to 30%.

Put those together and you get something around 1 in 1000 chance of it.

Given how common human v muffalo conflicts are across all games for all players, I have to imagine such occurrences are reasonably frequent.


Beyond that, I don't belive in math.

Whenever the first shot of whatever kills whoever, it's a moment worth notice.

I remember a guy who lost 3 toes in a row from pistol shots. He did not wear pants and passed out.

Hmm... Triple hit into same part group would be good! Just use the big caliber. And pray to RNGesus!

I...I can't do it. Leave it alive, please!(inner soul)

You ever have a level 0 shooter with a sniper rifle hit and chop the leg off a pawn? No? Still salty with that one.

For flu, try a cock. If that doesn't work, try boobmilk. Nice.
