Nathan Drake doesn’t actually take bullet damage in the Uncharted series

In Naughty Dog's PlayStation series, however, the markers still show where the fire is coming from but indicate that Drake's "luck" is running out, according to Naughty Dog animator Jonathan Cooper.

So there you have it - Drake isn't superhuman, he's just really, really lucky like Indiana Jones. But this explains that Drake isn't just taking bullets left and right and living to tell the story.

Of course, this does presumably mean that Drake's enemies are a rubbish shot, although as we pointed out above, it's a video game.

Vettel wins, Hamilton second at Silverstone

Erik Jones gets 1st win on wild night at Daytona
Based on race reports and replays, Cup, Xfinity and Truck teams had 160 vehicles involved in incidents at Daytona this season. Stenhouse won the first stage, taking the lead from pole-sitter Chase Elliott on the 14th lap.

The explanation does require the suspension of disbelief-Drake must be the luckiest person alive, or all of the bad guys in Uncharted are awful shots-but it offers a better explanation than other action games, where characters take physical damage from bullets before slowly self-healing while not being hit. That's because the UI that shows the Uncharted 'health' system that increasingly draws the color out of Nathan Drake's surroundings is actually telling you how close Drake is to having his luck run out. 'Eventually enemies will get a clear shot and kill him if he takes enough near-misses'.

As Amy Hennig, director of the first three Uncharted games explained: "True!" "That was the original intention (to stay more aligned with the spirit and tone of the films we were homaging)". The article, which outlines hands on impressions before the game's release, mentions the same luck mechanic.

Drake still appears to flinch when enemies shoot at him, although he never gets too bloodied.
