can someone explain the point of sending 20 mortar shells into the same spot?
Does it not make sense to adjust a bit (left or right +/- 30 feet, let's say) where it lands? If you already hit a vehicle/people/trench 3 or 4 times, why send more shit into the same spot? And if you hit nothing because there was nothing there, well, why send more shit into the same spot?

It's not accurate artillery, they just want to saturate an area quickly then gfto before somebody shoots back.

oh, so they might land all over the place? i wonder what the actual accuracy of it. Is it that bad/random?
Depends how far away they are shooting, the further away the bigger the spread, kind of like a shotgun. Generally mortars fall within a 30ft circle at or near max range.
