This is my first post here...so sorry if this has been talked about....but what's the deal with this gun? I never see anyone using it yet its my favorite gun by far. I seem to do the most consistent with it and even hip firing it has proven effective. I find it far better than the FAL at least.Des anyone else like this gun?
I think it is better than the FAL. The range the FAL drops off from 2 to 3 hit kills is sporadic and seems to change with the map. As I've noticed some AR shots are longshots but the same shot wouldn't have been a longshot on say, Turbine. Also if you use select fire the SMR, IMO, is much better.
It has more range than the FAL. But FAL has less recoil, faster reload time, faster ADS, faster raising and lowering times, as well as larger mag size. Let's not forget about the ROF advantage and TTK advantage of the FAL!
I do prefer to use the SMR in single-fire mode, however.
