Since Update 33 or maybe the recent hotfix their is a problem with weapons and tools. You see before this update when you moved your mouse forward or backward your character body and head actually leaned forward or backward allowing you too aim up or down with you weapon/tool. But now this is gone! When I move my mouse the “camera” just move around my character not moving the body or head. And now you can’t hit anything that is too low. For example the tools like pickaxe. You can’t harvest animal bodies with it because it can’t reach it, because your character does not lean forward and can’t aim down.
Only the “camera” is looking up or down.
Here is an old screen shoot example showing my character leaning forward

Same problem with fighting. If you use a sword and you have a low profile enemy on an even ground level too close to you like a crocodile or hyena a lot of your attack won’t hit your enemy because your character always attack strait forward and can’t aim up or down with weapons. The new fighting system is working well against human NPC and big creatures, but not with some low profile animal opponents like I mentioned before (hyenas, small scorpions etc.).
Unfortunately I can only show you a screen shoot with a bow where you can see that the bow is not aiming down but strait forward while I shoot down.
I used Imgur so if the pictures can’t be viewed please tell me!
I think this needs to be changed! Or it would be hard to fight at low level with certain weapons against certain enemies! Funcom please make a solution for this! Or people who reading this please tell this to Funcom before launch!
