Fal is op

Up close it's a 2 shot kill. I can pull the trigger twice in less than a second.

if it was overpowered it would be overused.

go to elite and see what percentage of deaths are caused by the fal then come back here.


Overused=/=Overpowered.

Look at the... Umm... Well... Okay in Black Ops 2 i think it applies... :)

To be fair no gun in the game takes longer than a fraction of a second to kill.

- Default mode is semi-auto
- Slow fire rate cap, even slower with Select Fire
- 2 bullet kill range far less than SMR
- Nerfed in patch 1.04 - increased recoil which is noticeable at long range

It's no more powerful than previous semi-auto's in the franchise, and these smaller maps are a lot less suitable for semi-auto rifles.


Lol


Well, I gave it a shot. I love the FAL. Always have in FPS games. The fear is that they'll nerf it to oblivion.

I actually hope they choose to buff a couple of other guns that can't complete instead of nerfing the FAL again. Like when they did that rebalancing in MW3 at one point to make some of the weaker weapons (FAD, UMP45, etc) more viable.

I probably should have mention I don't think it's OP anymore. It's definitely annoying, but not OP IMO.

- Select Fire changes that
- If you can connect your shots, it has the fastest TTK if you like numbers of all the ARs as well as the SMGs.
- SMR sucks
- recoil is still not that bad, esp with its slow fire rate.

It's one of the best weapons and I do consider it to be the best AR of BO2.
However, the SMGs, particularly the PDW and the MSMC are better overall.
It's a great weapon but it's definitely not OP.

3 Shot Kill at all ranges

MK48 with better mobility, still a top tier weapon, SMR now has a purpose.
