# Re: [Audyssey] my thoughts on the new version of swamp.

```maybe u can consider only with  the longest range weapon, u will be able to
aim and shoot zombies once u can hear them? for the low range weapons, u
will either have to run towards zombies or hope that u will attract their
attention and wait for them to come nearer for your other shorter range
weapons?

It's a little more complicated than that actually.  Walking doesn't move you
1 tile per step, or even half a tile per step.  In many games you are locked
to a grid, but this game doesn't work like that.  Each tile is almost like
measuring out a square of carpet and setting it on the floor.  With enough
squares you could always stop and be told which one you were on, but you
could be at its edge, center, or halfway between as many as 4 of them at a
time.  When you request your coordinates it simply rounds to give you the
easiest numbers to deal with.  Off hand, I'm not sure how many steps it
would take to truly move 1 tile.  It would also be only an approximation if
I did measure it, because the foot steps aren't quite that standardized
either.

I'm still trying to figure out the best approach with weapon ranges.  My
first plan is going to be to just increase the ranges so that you can always
hit what you hear.
