How to aim and use the KAL-7 like a pro!

Hai everyone!

I'm still fairly new to these forums, so... so why is that even that important.

ANYWHO

I've noticed that lots of people say how it's near impossibru to aim the KAL-7 (when in fact they should be saying how hard it is to aim a Dragon Sniper at a moving target .-.). It's actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it. I've actually been using the KAL since an Uncharted Thoughts video I saw.

I've been successful ever since. Smiley Very Happy

 

So, for all of yous who want to be GDLK and aim dat kally 7, here's a protip:

Just slightly, slightly, tip the right stick downwards. It will take some time for you to get used to it. You'll be aiming like a pro in no time. Smiley Happy


Loadout tips:


Using the KAL-7 effectively is hard enough, but then making a good loadout?! OMG OMG OMG IMPOSSIBRU-not.

So, here's basically how my loadout goes:

KAL-7 (DURR) [Mods: Scope Zoom]

Tau Sniper (used for distance, since you have to be crazy to actually think you'll kill someone with a KAL-7 from afar) [Mods: Call Out]

Explosive Expert (used for CQC and unadvantageous fights. Go Tap-A-Nade!)

Daredevil (used for moar ammo, althought Ammo Award could be used)

Cluster Bomb (moar grenades, although I find Cluster Bomb to be a bit weak. Might be changing to Mega Bomb)

 

So, yeah. Thought I'd make a small contribution to the community. Smiley Happy

I also enjoy aiming the Kal-7 when I feel like it. My Kal-7 loadout involve the Rate of Fire mod, so I'm putting an extra burden on my aiming. Still, if you can get the recoil down in some way, getting an aiming kill with a Kal-7 RoF can be very enjoyable. Smiley Happy

Not sure why you would need explosive expert for CQC fights, since thats where the KAL dominates the most... Despite it really debilitating you, I would say a stat hat that reduces RoF could help greatly when aiming, and daredevil will be the better alternative for a 2nd booster to get ammo for it as well as the tau since both of them have ammo problems.

 

I would find Cutter's kal being better for aiming if you want. As for a first slot booster, FF may be ideal to help control your aim. as for a kickback, militia man is pretty good too, thanks to its high RoF tho, you may burn the entire clip during the duration, but it makes it super effective.

Kal-7 and the Tau with Weapon expert level 3. Blindfire accuracy and rate of fire mods on the Kal-7 and Rate of Fire and reload speed on the Tau. To counter the low Ammo I go Ammo award because it gives me Tau ammo too. As for kickback go Militia man, as you can fire for days. I have an amazing connect four somewhere in one of my threads that used this loadout. Also aiming the Kal doesn't make you a pro. It makes you look like a moron. I aim occasionally when it's needed but to aim exclusively is just dumb. It's my wildcard gun and probably the most fun thing in the world.
