Nightstick "doesnt work like that BuT oK, it really works like that if I start recording the gameplay you'll see that you get arrested from 2-3 meters away hit
Sometimes you get hit and arrested by it from 2-3 meters away, sometimes we hit them 4 times at the closest distance and there's no arrest happening. It's stupid for both sides.
That's due to the ping, I guess. Try arresting someone with 200-300 ping, you will need to hit him at least 10 times. Also, you could have easily arrested him when he was tazed the second time. When that happens ( tazing someone in the air ), just wait down and hit him with the nightstick. Simple as that.
