Default Re: Dodge and Bombardment

Note that part of the reason people don't dodge bullets is because they're not really visible fast enough. It takes on the order of a half second to respond to an incoming threat and get out of its way. That's 150-500 yards, depending on the round.

Human visual resolution is about 1"/100 yards, which isn't enough to see a bullet unless it's designed to be seen. Dodging artillery is technically possible (typically visible at about a second out), though of limited value since the blast radius exceeds the distance you can move from a standing start by a lot.
