      I mean u do got a point but how are you supposed to learn from the games' mistake, not mine. As I recall, the attack was a good chunk o' screen away from me. The hit box of the attack is either way too large or my characters' hurt box is that chunky.

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
