Slug and Frag hipfire crosshair

I recently noticed that the hipfire crosshair has the wrong size for all Shotguns where Slug and Frag is used on. In the following two pictures I am using the Saiga 12k with ergo grip and the 1911 (both without laser). While moving they have 1.5 hipfire accuracy but the Saiga 12k hipfire crosshair is larger.

Moving spread is not a static number. The "moving spread" shown on site is more like a penalty. During moving your spread is along lines of \( min\_spread + movement\_spread*movement\_multiplier \).

Max movement spread happens when you're running. Strafing's multiplier is something like 0.5 (can't recall number), so in this case Saiga would have 0.5 spread and M1911 has 0.4 spread while strafing.

PS: We will probably change next BF charts little bit to show more practical values, eg. pre-calculated strafing spread.
