From the Ostfront FAQ http://www.redorchestragame.com/forum/showthread.php?t=795"Q: Where is my health bar?
A: In RO your health is represented by the soldier figure at the bottom. When you have been lightly wounded it turns yellow, when heavily wounded it turns red."
"Q: Is RO-Ostfront hard to learn ?
A: Some FPS Games tend to utilize fantastic Weapons or forego a realistic Gameplay in favor of a lower learning Curve. RO-Ostfront is a realistic simulation of the Second Worldwar on the eastern Front in Europe in the First Person View. But the learning curve is far lower then most Flight Simulations featuring modern Fighters/Helicopters. With realistic Gameplay its not the Controls one has to learn, its more that one has to learn different Tactics."
"Q: I got no crosshairs, how am i supposed to hit anything ???
A: Red Orchestra - Ostfront doesn't feature Crosshairs, you are supposed to aim using Ironsights (aiming over the actual Weapon Sights). There is a Key bound to this function, press it and aim. The Weapon will start to sway over time, but this will still be more accurate then firing from the default position (called Hip shooting). Just note that you move very slowly while aiming with Ironsights (IS is the Abreavation), or not at all while prone."
"Q: Will there be a demo of Ostfront?
A: There will be a demo, whether prior to the release or afterwards is not yet decided and depends if the making of the demo interferes with the currently planed releasedate. With the possibilities Steam offers, the Devs might consinder a free-weekend, although this part is highly inofficial!"
"Q: Are Sniper Rifles powerful enough ? Or do i need 5 Shots to kill someone ?
A: RO-Ostfront has a Damage Model designed after real Weapons, a Hit from a Rifle to a Torso/Head Location is a a guaranteed Kill. Even with smaller Weapons SMGs/Pistol a Hit in the Head is fatal."
Anyone can find out far more about Ostfront at the link I gave at the top of this post. Now you have an idea of why I said, I think its been stated that the health indication system has not changed from the mod.
Edit: Also in the mod 1 shot to the chest from the STG44 will kill you. (Think its called the STG44) Its the German assault rifle that can be switched from full auto to semi. I've seen 1 shot from pistols kill. Its hard to tell how many hits from SMGs as they fire so fast you sometimes never really know if its more then 1 & sometimes you can see its more then 1. Mixed bag there. Never tried rifle butts but I know they kill in 1 hit.
