Am I the only one who thinks the AR's are WAY OP? I usually play as a sniper, and multiple times I would get a hitmarker on someone halfway across the map and he'd just turn around and kill me instantly with his AR! The AR's need a big recoil nerf. They have way too little recoil. HOWEVER this wouldn't be a problem if you didnt die in 2 shots with every AR -_-. Also the SMG's are way underpowered. Each SMG has quite a bit of recoil and they take atleast 3 shots to kill someone at close range.
So what im trying to say is that the AR's overpower everything. They overpower the Snipers in long range and they overpower the SMG's in short range. Thats just stupid and it should be fixed -_-
No. I think sniping is more fun the running around with an AR. But that doesn't mean my playstyle should be made useless. IW should make every gun succeed at what it is good at. If im out gunned by an AR at super long range then that is BS. Especially if it happens after i get a hitmarker or dont even have time to aim in.
I honestly dont think the snipers are that underpowered. Its probably just the lag and hit detection that makes me get hitmarkers to the chest and not the feet. However the smgs are way underpowered. I dont care what you say, they are.
The smg's are not underpowered because they shoot faster. Try the K7 for example. It is becoming my favorite and kills really fast when used properly. You just have to play a bit smarter when using them and know where not to run. As far as AR's go, the only one that kills in 2 shots is the MSBS, which deals something like 51 damage per shot. I am pretty sure that no other deals higher than 49 and even the MSBS has significant drop of at range unless you are using the muzzle brake. Honestly, I think these are the best balanced weapons in recent history and they will probably not have to nerf or buff anything. As for your 2 chest shot sniper, the guy could have had a ballistic vest on, which would cause you to have to put that extra shot in.
I dont think he did, especially since this happens all the time. Besides, I use armor piercing bullets, doesnt that make ballistic 'vests useless? Also I havent researched the exact stats of the weapons, i'm just basing it on what i see. And in the killcam I count 2 shots fired then im dead.
Yea, armor piercing rounds should go straight through a vest. It is probably just latency you are up against. Don't forget that the killcams are not 100% accurate. Hopefully it will balance itself out for you. Maybe run ballistic vests yourself to even things out if you continue to have issues.
You should really be going for one shot kills with a sniper really, I like that Snipers have less chance QS on this game coz they get dropped quicker
i think they made AR's so powerful so that they could compete withthe marksman rifles =)
