FAD TDM MOAB post buff!!

spankhiccup

After the recent buff to the fad, this gun has gone up in my estimates. This is one of my go to classes now. Just show it abit of love and you have yourself a desent AR..

 

How did you guys find the changes to the FAD?. Do you use it? What set up do you use?

    The range still sucks!! Keep your enemies and medium/short range and you will do just fine

    It was a good Moab, looking forward to checking ur other one out tonight. Will get it uploaded at some point during the week if I get a chance.

     

    I personally haven't used it a lot, but when I have post buff, I found it to be a decent weapon, I reckon I could get a Moab with it as easy as I could with an ACR or an AK. To me it's always more about the connection than the weapon your wielding.

     

    You should get that video embedded mate!

    Whytie.....You gave it a helluva run buddy.  I am shocked that you didnt fall in love with the G36.  I suck and do well with it so figured you would eat em up with it.  It is just faster in every way then all of the other AR's which I knew would fit your style.  The FAD is a close second though on the speed front.  It is fast too.

     

    @spank.....I have golded it a few times and have it there now but havnt used it in awhile.  What was the buff on it?  I might throw er in another class then.

      The buff was increase bullet damage and range i think. It has made it a great gun. Try it out again ramboner you will see the difference

       

      I love the G36 too. Once you get used to the irons its a great gun. I am on a quest to gold all guns so i dont use it anymore. I do want a moab with it though!!

        Ya man i have it in a "speed" class with Q'draw, stalker and steady aim 1st up in specialist.  Its quick.  It took me months to talk whytie into the UMP and he rolled off a MOAB with it immediately..... maybe the second game that he actually gave it a chance so I sent him my G36 class to try.  It is so fast I knew it would fit his style like a glove.......sounds like hes had enough of it though haaa...

         

        Good luck on all gold guns buddy.  I got it done about a month ago and its a frustrating marathon for sure haaa.  I always liked the FAD so I guess I will have to give it another go next time I play.  I have been back on a M4 kick and been using the M16 a ton so its time to change it back up anyway.  Its fast so ill slide it into that fast class where the G36 is.

          Yeah m16 is awsome thats is gold so i dont use that anymore. Think i may well give up on the quest soon. I am not going to do it before bo2 comes out.

           

          I watched that ump vid. He gave you a mention. I think the ump is kick ass aswell. The buff to that made that an even greater gun than it already was.

           

          You dont need Q'draw or SoH with the G36. It has the fastest standard ADS and reload of all AR's.

      @Ramboner, or robber as my phone wants to call you ;)

       

      I do really like the G36, powerful as hell, and like you say a really fast rushy AR set up. My problem isn't the gun, I've been on dozens of high end streaks in the last few weeks, maybe even 20 which have been 19+. Just they haven't converted to moabs.

       

      Most of the deaths are down to people sitting in wait for me as they probably know I'm on for a Moab. I can handle campers, but sometimes their hiding spots are just unbelievable.

       

      On terminal, at the back of the map internally, there is a check in desk, near the back corner. Usually people hover in the room behind or head glitch the desk itself. Have u ever noticed there's a pillar attached to the front of the desk? And it forms a perfect recess for someone to sit in without getting noticed when approached from the side. I was on a 22 streak and walked across that area. Turned to shoot down towards the gate entrance to the plane, and got shot in the ass by a dude with a type95 form 2 yards who sat and waited for me. (He did not shoot my team mate who was 10 yards infront who took the same route), he specifically waited for me.

       

      I've noticed this happen alot, I guess it's just unfortunate that the enemy team has a smart cookie on their team and is willing to change up his style to ensure my streak gets stopped.

       

      As this kept happening I got frustrated at the gun as 'd been using it loads, so moved on to others to stop myself going insane. Ha ha.

    Surprised they buffed the FAD quite honestly, always felt it was one of the better assault rifles, other than the 3-bursts of course. With red dot and silencer + scavenger this thing owns. The FAD was always my best AR in terms of k/d. G36 is a close second and other favorite.
