I'm guessing I've already seen the video about laser sight and al that before...anyway...Gaz is dead..the game was not meant to be hacked and no clipped and have laser sights on every gun. Gaz even if misses had to be shot on the spinal cord somewhere and I'm telling you that I'm no gun expert but, no one can survive a deagle to spinal cord.
I fully understand that. You have to pay attention to the key word "may". I'm not saying hes alive for sure niether am i saying hes dead for sure. I'm simply saying that given the evidence it's possible.
now as for what you said about the hacking to see a different angle. You could very well be correct and lazy development could make appear as if hes dead from one angle but still alive from another. Maybe they did it on purpose becasue they knew that the game was gonna be hacked so they left it in as an easter egg. Who really knows.
People get struck by lightening and fall from very high places and still live.. anything is possible. You have to have an open mind when looking at things like this.
