As Slickmund already said, they don't.
APB would probably be kinda weird with headshots tbh.

Yeah I don't think headshots have a place in this game.  I DO wish players were vulnerable through car windows and car tires were shootable, but I dunno, game might need a massive rework for that.  As-is, a player literally BECOMES the car when they get in.

yeah I'm not a fan of how players basically absorb a cars health as soon as they enter. but if players were able to be shot through car windows, car chases would be impossible. 

 

 

imagine car drop off missions. some of the locations are pretty difficult, especially if the defending team swapped out to AV weapons.

 

 

if you're trying to ninja a car objective, if the other team was constantly able to shoot your tires or you through the windshield, it'd be impossible to make any progress.

No, they absolutely do not as a classic headshot, all body parts do equal damage in APB, however, you may aim for the head, for the satisfying ragdoll impulse when the enemy dies.

 

 

Tip, there are different damage types though, some enemy can have Kevlar to increase protection against bullets, but he'll still be 

vulnerable to stamina damage (stun) or explosion damage. and in case of vehicles, look for the "Hard damage" to know what the damage the weapon will do.

Do NTEC do as same many damage as CR5? Some say same gun?? my do not think so 

Yes, they're identical, CR5 is just a reskin.

These 2 are a comparison between CR5 PR2 and an NTEC with matching mods, nothing is different 🙂

Not at all, even shooting between legs in the blank space takes damage, here's a picture of what the hitbox looks like that I took from another thread:

Edit:

 

And right as N66 said, there are several factors regarding damage taken, so I'm adding this graphic about Clothing Agent and normal health regen curves to understand this as well:

You are all just cubes. and every one of them looks exactly the same. hell character height doesn't even change it. head shots are shots, just like that shot that missed the character model completely counts.

They count as normal hits. There is no specific head hitbox for more damage.

Oh really? I just had that image from the times of Revoemag tweaking guns and weapons, guess this was updated and I was totally unaware, notice the date in my picture says 2013, lol.

 

Thanks Cookie!

Where/how did you get that btw?

 

I tried a quick search in the APBDB/Vault but couldn't find this info so just posted that old picture I had. And would be useful for the OP too.

There was a thread on the old forums, I'll look it up after work, post it and mention you.

What if windshield/tires had to take a certain amount of hard damage before failing? That could mitigate it somewhat

Meaning passengers could shoot out from inside the car without having to lean out to do that?

 

Don't know of any game that allows that for passengers so
