They don't even have to worry about feeling the shock! I was playing last night and there was 2 danny wilkins running around together. 1 with NG and 1 with MG back to back. So even if you stunned the one and got the shot the other would kill you. Well not when I finally got back at them. They came around the corner and 1 immediately hit the floor followed by the other. EB helps keep them still but if you can skip it then it's just a waste of time.
The reason you console users get headshots from aiming above the head is because of auto aim.
I have noticed that the hit boxes are not at ALL what the character appears to be. People find hitting the hunched over characters hard to hit because their hit box for the head isn't actually where their head is!
I suspect that some characters have alternate hit box images as well. For example I think the welder (first character) has an upside down Y hitbox. Look at how is legs are in a wide stance. If you shoot between his legs nothing will register. If you look at Naledi for example though, her legs are stuck together and shooting in the same area WILL register a hit.
Either way the game is very inaccurate for hit boxes as opposed to what you're actually seeing. Meaning that only the people with no life get exceptionally good because they are seeing the hit boxes in their head, and not the visual character itself.
