m16 still sucks

im not sure if im just going through a bad patch or its just not the gun for me but i swear down that gun is just as bad as its always been in mw3, its still taking 2-3 bursts to kill except for the odd 1 burst kill which is few and far between.

ive painfully unlocked every attachment and proficiency for it and tried every combintaion and cant find one setup that works well the closest i got was silncer with rapid fire if anyone has any tips on how to use the piece of sh*t id be gratefull

I golded it and whipped it out after the patch and I can say it's definitely better...try using rapid fire and RDS. Rapid fire is obviously very good and RDS helps with precise takedowns because its iron sights suck. Stalker is a must for me on my M16 class.

Re: m16 still sucks

the gun is okay, i also use rapid fire and RDS..

its a fun game, but not a gun ill pull out to try and do well with.

the 3 round burst are not as good being that mw3 maps are so small and those kind of guns work best when your not so close to the enemy, the space between the bursts get you killed

I agree. After using the gun post-hotfix I find it is better but ONLY in certain circumstances. Unfortunately there are still many other guns that outclass the M16.

If it was only like its MW2 counterpart.

i dont think it should have damage drop off, it should be a one shot kill as long as all bullets connect
