A new feature in Nexon America’s free-to-play Combat Arms encourages players to shoot their foes in the beanbag for instant kills. No, we’re not kidding.

Sure, “head shots” have been around in games for ever, so I guess some developers are kind of bored with them. Hence the brand-new feature in Combat Arms: “Nut Shot.”

Yes, it’s precisely what it says it is. See a male opponent approaching your position? Zoom your rifle in and put a bullet not in his brain, but in his scrotum. It’ll be just as effective: A one-shot kill as your opponent writhes on the ground in agony at the loss of his Mean Bean Machine.

Honestly, I’m … not even sure what else to say about this. I can’t stop watching the video; I think the little Nutcracker “crunch” is sort of hypnotic. Clearly, other FPS games should follow suit with this groundbreaking new mechanic.
