Until you take me to Lab Map 3 where it seems you have to use Flynn's M9 to compete with the blindfire-fest there.


Doesn't have anything to do with how I myself perform with it, a non-accuracy AK flat-out cannot compete against any of the other rifles unless you are close range (and at that point you might as well be blindfiring anyway).


And in my experience, that's where you're wrong. The AK-47 has a different type of recoil from the M9 and G-MAL which needs to be managed in a completely different way. It doesn't make it bad, it doesn't make it un-competitive. The AK-47 is unreliable at long range, sure (though I've gotten my fair share of long range kills with the AK), but it's very useful for short and mid-range. Most people I've talked to about the AK agree with me. You (and I guess B_Smiley could count, since he kudos your AK posts all the time...) are the only one I've seen who says the AK is "trash". I think it does have to do with how you yourself perform with it if everyone else who uses it does well with it and you're the only one who says it's underpowered.


lol, nice observation :smileyvery-happy:

 

Believe me, I'm mostly a TO player, and I always had used ND AK in TO (CQC mode obviously :smileytongue:)  due to my believe of the SP effectiveness in this game until I realized something with a little testing. The SP in UC3 is different from UC2. In UC2, each bullet had it own SP effect, while in UC3 the SP won't take effect until about half of your health is gone (I think xSKIN_N_BONESx will agree with me since he talked about it once, however, I'll be happy if I'm wrong). After that I switched to  jade M9 since the SP is almost pointless in UC3, and I noticeably performed much better.

 

The AK's recoil is simply uncontrollable. Without the accuracy mod it is very cumbersome, and I'll be very happy to hear a direct way to control it.

I like using an automatic and a Para 9. I blindfire it a lot.

And, like everyone else, I complain about blindfire while using blindfire. Go me!

Dunno. Maybe it's because rather than only having a few M4s around, people start with the M9.


It's probably (not a real statistic, just based on previous matches, no need to vent out about your gun preference) the most used gun, topping starter gun AK and that other gun with Elena on it.

No. SCREW what people think. I use M9. Why switch? Peer pressure? Screw that. I might have a Starter (Eddy's AK), Variant (Ramses' KAL) [changing it to Sniper soon], Auto (Marlowe's M9) and Single-Shot (Dragon) [changing it to Talbot's FAL once I hit 50].


And you know what? Auto's almost always my main.


Btw all pistols are Para 9s. Drake's and Marlowe's.

I think the UC2 dragon's competitor here is the T-Bolt. UC3 Dragon's faster, but deals less damage.
