no, Jaidyn, we're complaining that it doesn't happen.

we want to see blood spurting out of necks! and play a bit of football (sorry, soccer for the non-brits) with the heads!

it does happen apparently:



i'm trying to find the in-game description of the perk, but according to this list (and a couple of others i've quickly looked at), one-handed decap doesn't exist - are we just imagining it?

i've got decap too - haven't seen any heads roll either - unlike in fallout 3 when you get the perk that splatters enemies into lots of little pieces - forgotten what it's called now...bloody mess? although i do seem to get a lot more critical hits with it now.
The glass aspect made no sense in Oblivion either - but in a land of magic and other whatnots - ancient tempered glass... why not?

I had that perk - it was fun for a little while but it got old fast. I ended up re-loading an old save game.

I'm one-handed with an axe, maybe another weapon might see some chop-chop

I don't remember if there was a perk specifically for it or not, it's something that happens when you get a critical strike randomly while finishing off an enemy mixed with the sword through the belly animation. The perks generally allow critical strikes to happen more frequently from what I remember so you see it happen more often, but at best it still happens only now and then and generally only on the last enemy in a melee fight.

It defiantly happens often enough, it's quite gruesome, especially as your camera can be in random positions when it happens and is sometimes very close up.

And the heads can roll roll roll for a LONG distance sometimes if you are outside on a road

Look in your Skills menu. The chance to decaptitate is in both the one-handed and two-handed Weapons perks. The percentage is 25% (1 in 4).

Ah ok...

Heh it is a particularly satisfying move when it happens immediately after the bandit or mage your fighting shouts out something like "This ends now!", *CHOP* ... Yes... it does....

No, I've been evaluating my stay here. Anyway I'll just do some spot posts here and there as I won't be hanging around.

Just wanted to post that info since there was a lot of confusion about it.

Peace

Discuss: Bulletstorm
So what do you people think of this game, those who have played it. I finished it, I can't say I love it, it was "iffy" to say at best. Not a great game. The whole process of "kill with skill" didn't really turn out to be as awesome as it sounded for me.
