Why did gaijin remove that visual effect?

Soooo you are against total realism.
But a red glowing barrel is too much?

thats normal though

Only problem is in game it overheats after just 250

Yeah the effect happened too quickly but games like escape from tarkov also have overheating barrels and suppressors when you fire in full auto. It’s more of a visual cue that lets the player know their gun is about to overheat/fail.

I think the devs were going for a similar approach for war thunder as well, hopefully it gets tweaked for auto cannon fire only, since I really liked the effect.

Try again
