This is the raw data from some practice sessions I had with
Untzremark to try to figure out how to make a boomer
"explode in your face" timebomb SS formula.
All I can say for sure after lots of practice is that I have a 1 SD
and half screen distance shot.
1 screen timebomb ss: 18, 2.5 bars
1/2 s.d. timebomb ss: 40, 1.4 bars
For a bit over 1 screen, keeping the angle and just adding a
bit of power is fine. The angle is the important thing, the power
can vary a bit as long as you don't shoot with too little power
and it hits dirt. It's basically a shotgun with a little angle
and not so much power that it goes across the screen instantly.
I still don't have a formula, but I'll share the
info that I have, maybe someone can make sense of it.
How to read the info:
First number is angle.
Second is power.
Third is wind strength.
Fourth is wind direction, which I express with u(up),f(forward),
d(down) and b(back). The more you see of a direction, the more
the wind was pointing that way. So uuuub means almost straight up
and only a little back. db means exactly 45 degrees down and against
