In addition to this - if you happen to be working on some level of
ragdoll for your FPS, which is semi-likely, I recommend making the
connection function in both "ragdoll" mode and "hit box" mode.  That
is, instead of having a sphere that sort of sits where the head is,
use all the same limbs you would use in the ragdoll, and allow each to
be a hit zone (that follows the animation).  Voila, "pixel perfect"
hit detection.
