M8A1 vs SWAT-556

#1dspmusikPosted 1/30/2013 7:19:20 PM
Which do you like better? What are strengths and weaknesses of each?
I wanted to like the M8 (or XM8, as i call it), but seemed like it always took more bursts than it should to put someone down.
I never even tried the SWAT since i heard it was so bad until now, and had some success, even without the attachments i like.
thoughts?

I like the SWAT more... not really sure why. Both have times where the burst will kill in one hit, and both have times where the lag causes the bursts to not be effective as they should be. And Select Fire wise... SWAT gets the short end of the stick when compared to the M8A1.

SWAT 556, Because the M8A1 XM series was a failed prototype for a reason. SIG Sauer 4 lyfe

I don't really like the M8A1. I rarely kill anyone with one burst and there's only eight bursts in a magazine. With the SWAT-556, you have ten bursts so killing in two bursts isn't as big of a problem. The SWAT-556 also has a faster reload time.

SWAT never takes more than 4 shots to kill and has a longer 3 hit kill range than the ma81 or watevers 4 hit kill range.

The 4 round is better for spamming at close range tho

That is unless you are using the select fire attachment for full auto on it (that is until they fix that bug).

I like the M8 more just preference I guess. I will continue to try out the SWAT.

If they were going to take longer to give the patch to us PS3 players, they should've fixed and then release the patch...we havbe all the same problems you do and we got it days later. Bleh.

I prefer the M8. The thing is a beast on full auto. The Swat with select fire? Well... we'll just have to see.
