On. It was painful tonight playing against high level players who...quite literally... all have Mag bullets. Every deathcam I checked my killer's spec and every single one had Mag bullets active. On several occasions, my squad of all <lvl 15 players were emptying clips into opposing higher lvls and getting nothing, while a few Mag rounds wasted us with ease. It's more a failing of the game than an issue with softcore v hardcore that higher lvl players get better armour and damage than players just starting out. Hardcore only loses the radar and clearer objectives/HUD. Everyone should be using iron sights anyway so losing crosshairs is no biggy.
