it is two bullet kill up to 20 metres,People are running and gunning with it instead of SMGs.Every try-hard in town is using it.
Enjoy while it lasts
All AR's seem to be killing in 2-3 shots which is total bs and unbelievable that IW thought this was fair.
I never see people running and gunning with SMG's because the AR's are much more lethal at close range than the SMG's.
The SMGs in this game seem almost pointless. Even in CQC within 20 meters, they loose out to ARs because the ARs have such high damage and hardly any recoil.
I unlocked this gun just b/c it was a 3 round burst on a whim. Boy did I make the right decision. It reminds me of the FAMAS in MW2. That gun destroys so you know it's going to be nerfed in the future.
the 3 round AR in BO2 was also the dominant gun in the game for accuracey and stopping power. It was eventually nerfed and required two 3 round burts to kill, basically at least 1 bullet of the second burst had to hit the target. The nerfing made the gun less popular in general play but becasue of the accuracy and burst fire it would kill instantly with a head shot and so was a powerful tool for those that knew how to use it well.
I would look see the MSBS nerfed at some point.
to add to that, when it was nerfed a good way around the burst fire was to get a 'foregrip' and 'select fire' so you can set it on automatic. you loose some of the accuracy but with the rapidity of fire it makes it deadly.
If you add the 3 round burst to any of the fast firing assault rifles they perform very similar to the MSBS so its more of a 3 round burst thing than the MSBS being OP.
Except the MSBS can kill in two rounds whereas all other AR's require at least three.
